This substantial home known as Cyprus Park was constructed back in 1992. It was carefully designed and both stone and brick faced which is a refreshing change from the typical architecture of that decade. Over the years, many improvements have been made to the house including the addition of the ground floor large annexe which is self-contained and has access from the main house via an internal staircase. There is a long private gated driveway, double garage and attractive gardens which extend to some 0.7 acres and surround the home and frame the wonderful views over the valley.
Beyond the attractive external elevation lies the accommodation which is accessed up a few steps to the ground floor where the front door opens into the impressive main hallway. The principal reception area includes a large sitting room which is dual aspect and has two sliding doors that open onto the balcony. A major focal point of the room is the stone fire surround with plinths on either side and a gas real flame effect fire. The open plan kitchen/dining room is triple aspect and has a range of matching wall and base units, corner display shelving and integrated appliances including a double electric oven and a five ring gas hob and extractor. The kitchen area has a walk-in pantry, hard floor, modern lighting and a breakfast bar. The large dining area completes a wonderful social space which is perfect when entertaining and hosting large family events.
There are three bedrooms on this level, the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room/WC with electric shower, a double fitted wardrobe and bedroom units with a dressing table. Bedroom two has free standing bedroom furniture that will remain as part of the sale and bedroom three has sliding doors which lead out to the rear patio. The large family bathroom/WC is fitted with a matching range of sanitary ware including a separate large shower cubicle with mains shower.
A prominent staircase descends to the lower ground floor which was originally part of the main house. This was separated off when consent was granted to turn the lower level into a large one bedroom annexe, with a door being positioned at the foot of the stairs. This could easily be removed however and the whole of the lower level revert back to being part of the main house which was formerly a huge main bedroom with en-suite bathroom/WC and a utility room.
At present, the annexe comprises of a large lounge which has direct access via sliding doors out to the attractive Mediterranean style veranda which enjoys a wonderful outlook over the garden and towards Dartmoor. The annexe bedroom has a range of bedroom furniture including wardrobes and over and side bedside units. A kitchen/dining room has a range of units and room for a good sized table along with double opening doors to the veranda. Due to it being self-contained, the annexe would appeal to those seeking accommodation for a multi-generational family or (subject to consent) be used to derive income by either a holiday let or commence an assured shorthold tenancy.
Beneath the house, on the other side, is a large sub floor storage area with a room suitable for an office. The other areas include storage with limited headroom but from where there is access to much of the plumbing infrastructure. The house benefits from mains gas fired central heating and external windows are sealed unit wooden double glazed.
Externally, Cyprus Park is approached by a long and private access lane where although another two homes have access over the top part, it is in the ownership of our client. The lower half over the driveway is mainly block paved and is enclosed by double gates. There are wonderful grounds which surround the home which in total amount to some 0.7 acres. There is a mix of large lawned areas flanked by many mature beds stocked with shrubs and bushes, such as conifers, camellias and a feature cypress tree. Many paved patios are positioned around each side of the home with a decking area at the side which like both the balcony and veranda, provide the ideal place to enjoy the view over the garden and outside dining or drinks when the weather allows. There is an outside tap and lighting with a useful block built outside store.
The extensive grounds include a productive area with greenhouse and vegetable plot and a lower area of wild garden which offers a display of perennials. For those wanting to keep poultry there are block built chicken houses. The whole area offers shelter and frames the wonderful views across the Kensey Valley towards Dartmoor.
Launceston, the Ancient Capital of and acknowledged gateway to Cornwall sits astride the A30 one mile from the Devon/Cornwall border, in an area of considerable beauty and charm with easy access to both North and South Coasts as well as to the cities of Exeter, Plymouth and Truro. Dating back to Celtic times the whole of Launceston is steeped in history and is dominated by its Castle built by Brian de Bretagne the first Norman Earl of Cornwall in the 11th Century. Once the site of the Royal Mint and the only walled town in Cornwall the Launceston of today has much to offer and to reward both business and leisure interests. There is a town trail for visitors to follow which highlights the ancient architecture and historical features including the 16th Century Church of St. Mary Magdalene which has one of the most lavishly carved exteriors of any Church in England. There are three other churches as well as a Methodist Chapel and Kingdom Hall, three Primary Schools, one private school and Launceston College, so both spiritual and secular needs are well served.
The town has a range of shopping, commercial and leisure facilities, with supermarkets, its retail park and leisure centre. Nearer to the property is the challenging 18 hole golf course and many delightful walks along the Kensey Valley. The property is located off Ridgegrove Hill in the heart of the picturesque Kensey Valley a short distance from Launceston town centre. It is built on the old railway line which closed some 50 years ago and was the mainline between London and Padstow. It is in a tranquil location with rural walks accessed right from the front door.
