Trillacott Park, North Petherwin, Launceston, Cornwall
Trillacott Park has a rich history as it was and remains one of the most important houses in the area and dates back to the 18th century. It is located in a semi-rural location, a mile or so from the attractive village of North Petherwin, which is one of the largest parishes in north Cornwall. The residence has been the home of our clients for over 40 years. They have enjoyed their time bringing up their family and using every part of the spacious accommodation, extensive outbuildings, gardens and grounds. Today it is fair to recognise that the property would welcome some updating and presents the perfect opportunity for a buyer to put their own stamp on the home and tailor it to suit their bespoke requirements and enjoy an idyllic lifestyle in the heart of this wonderful countryside.
Affording plenty of character the rooms include a large farmhouse kitchen/dining room which is dual aspect spanning the whole depth of the property. There are a range of kitchen units, a lovely flagstone floor, feature granite fire surround with wooden lintel containing an oil fired Rayburn, which is a well-used cooking appliance and assists to heat the hot water and one radiator upstairs in the bathroom above. In addition there is a large lounge which has a stone fireplace with an inset wood burning stove. A conservatory/garden room has been used to store many items and enjoys a pleasant outlook over the rear garden. Concluding the ground floor is a very large and useful utility room, porch and separate WC.
A generous feature landing serves the five bedrooms, all of which enjoy a lovely view around the surrounding countryside, with the master bedroom having a feature stone fire surround. Bedrooms four and five are single rooms and have been used for hobbies and study purposes. A spacious bathroom and a separate WC serve these bedrooms. Some of the rooms in the property have had replacement UPVC double glazed windows as necessary and the character and charm of this residence and potential for improvement means that it would no doubt appeal to a wide variety of purchasers.
Externally, Trillacott Park is approached from the single road by a private driveway with gate which serves the plot and concrete yard providing plenty of parking. There is a detached single garage and a large hay barn. Indicative of its period there are a wide variety of outbuildings including a stable block with three loose boxes and a separate large workshop at one end. There is also a cow shed and two further very useful store sheds. For those looking to become sustainable, a lovely enclosed orchard and cultivated area of garden provides the perfect platform for growing fine produce. There are formal gardens well stocked with a variety of shrubs, bushes, perennials and small specimen trees. A poly tunnel and part of an old Nissen hut are well used.
The grounds in total extend to some 5.5 acres, the paddocks are found to the side of the house and are well enclosed and drained. They have separate agricultural access from the road and also through the driveway of the property. The home will no doubt appeal to those wanting to keep stock such as sheep, horses, cows or llamas. The land which from all parts has far reaching views has not had any fertilisers applied to it over the past 40 years we are told.
