The grounds are thought to extend to approximately two thirds of an acre in total, approached by a gravelled driveway to large parking area, leading to the DETACHED GARAGE with double doors, electric light and power connected. To the rear of the garage is a wooden built triple bay open fronted car port with adjoining stone built open fronted wood store. Large cistern water storage tank used to collect rain water from the roof of the carport for watering gardens. The delightful plot contains many mature trees and shrubs with various sections created by the owners. One area with green house and vegetable garden. A further sunken garden with attractive fish pond surrounded by rockery and patio area with a summer house with decked area overlooking the pond. This building is in need of some finishing works. The owners have created a delightful gravelled seating area affectionately known as the 'Poop Deck' ideal for sitting and enjoying the peace of the valley. From the gardens at the lower side are two pedestrian gates leading on to the public footpath which runs alongside the River Tamar, giving access to walks etc.


The current owners have lived at the property since 1981 and twice since they have lived here, the river has flooded with water entering into the cellars but not reaching the living accommodation which is obviously higher set. We understand that prior to their occupation, the previous flood was thirty years earlier. In the cellar is a sump with pump fitted to remove flood water.


Mains electricity, gas, metered water and mains drainage.
