This stunning Grade II Listed detached country residence has a wealth of character throughout and offers high quality accommodation that is substantial, flexible and would suit a wide range of buyers. Its charm and heritage is visible as it is believed to date back to the 17th century with the property comprehensively extended, we believe back in the 19th century. The property has been the home to our clients for some 10 years and they have made many further improvements during this time to include re-wiring and re-plumbing. There is a substantial outbuilding in the garden used as a workshop/garage which has in 2018 benefited from planning consent to be demolished and a new three bedroom property constructed. This house could be a separate home or have all sorts of possibilities to be used as an annexe or a letting unit. It has full residential consent so when built could be sold off if needed. Today, Higher Welby is a great opportunity for someone to settle in a delightful environment and enjoy the grounds and the ever changing far reaching views that are on offer.
Beyond the attractive stone exterior lies the accommodation which sits under a slated roof. It is served by many external doors, but most frequently used is the door into the useful side entrance lobby that connects to the kitchen and a ground floor modern shower room/WC. The traditional cottage style kitchen has a range of matching cream wall and base units to include wooden and granite work surfaces with drawers underneath. Included in the sale is an electric oven and hob, a refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen also features the recessed oil fired Aga. The room has modern down lighting and a tiled floor. Moving through, the breakfast room is used on a daily basis and is dual aspect with plenty of natural light. There is room for a good sized table and in the corner an attractive period fire surround. The main reception room is split into two areas by the stunning vertical beams and represents the oldest part of the house. The lounge area has a striking inglenook stone fireplace which has a wooden lintel, clome oven and a wood burning stove set on a brick hearth. When lit, this provides a lovely feel to the room which has a slated floor. At each side of the fireplace are two attractive storage recesses and corner display plinth with a window seat. Like the lounge, the adjacent dining area has a tiled floor, beamed ceiling, window seat and further attractive former fireplace and wall lights. In the middle, are the stairs that are accessed by a door and ascend to the first floor as well as an external door to the garden that was once the main entrance to the property. The garden room which was added some years ago is often used in the warmer months for casual dining and relaxing whilst enjoying a splendid view over the gardens. It has a poly carbonate roof and access to the utility room and general store as well as the garden.
On the first floor, the split level landing has access to all bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is a large room with a wonderful vaulted ceiling and benefits from a walk in dressing room and an en-suite shower room/WC which has a large shower tray. Bedroom two also has a lovely ceiling with exposed purlins and 'A' frame beams, these rooms like bedroom four enjoy a delightful outlook over the gardens and surrounding countryside. The rear section of the first floor features a large landing/reception area with airing cupboard to the side which in all could be used as an occasional fifth bedroom if so required or a cot room. Adjacent, bedroom three is a good size too and has an outlook to the side. The luxuriously appointed bathroom is fully tiled and has a tiled floor, modern down lighting and features a matching modern bathroom suite with a large bath with shower taps and a separate large shower cubicle with electric shower unit.
The property which has many modern comforts benefits from heating which is generated from the oil Aga and also centrally run from the Biomass system which the owners installed a few years back. External windows and doors are wooden to retain the character feel with the sills being large enough for useful storage or seating. Our clients have benefited from obtaining conditional planning consent which was issued by Cornwall Council on 31st October 2018 under application number PA18/08768 for the erection of a residential dwelling. The plans associated with the application feature a detached three bedroom, two storey dwelling which will have good sized gardens. This is a key feature of the overall property and presents all sort of opportunities for either multi-generational living within the same plot or deriving income through residential or holiday letting, leisure or for working from home.
The total plot size amounts to approximately 0.5 of an acre with the property approached by the council adopted road which leads to the access gate to the driveway which is served by a five bar gate. The gravelled driveway has parking and turning for many vehicles and at the side a pedestrian gate provides access to the garden. The gardens are a major feature of the property as they are attractive, well established and feature a wide variety of large specimen deciduous and coniferous trees. The garden has many gravelled pathways which are flanked by colourful shrubs and bushes and young neat hedging.
Railway sleepers and patios feature in the landscaping that our clients have undertaken and this has been carefully arranged to ensure the fine views are retained across the surrounding landscape. At present where the site is for the new house a large garage/workshop sits and is perfect for those with hobbies or collection of classic cars or bikes. It could also be developed separately for other uses subject to a planning alteration. A useful stone garden shed will be found along with the biomass shed housing the boiler and pellet store at the rear and a useful second driveway providing additional outside space and parking.
Higher Welby lies just off the B3254, North of Launceston. Village amenities such as a Village Hall and County Primary Schools can be found at both North Petherwin and Boyton within a few miles of the property. The well-known thatched Countryman Public House is within a couple of miles. Launceston which is approximately 7 miles distant, has a range of shopping, commercial, educational and recreational facilities and lies adjacent to the A30 dual carriageway given access to Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction. For those with coastal interests the North Cornish Resort of Bude can be reached within 9 miles, which is known for its miles of sandy beaches, surf and cliff top walks.

Exeter is served by an excellent regional international airport. The continental ferry port and city of Plymouth is approximately 33 miles from the property and again offers extensive facilities as well as regular cross channel ferry services to France and Spain.
