A BEAUTIFULLY IMPRESSIVE AND CHARMING VICTORIAN DETACHED FAMILY HOME. SIX BEDROOMS, THREE RECEPTION ROOMS, LOVELY MANICURED GARDENS AND AN ABUNDANCE OF OFF ROAD PARKING. DOUBLE GARAGE/WORKSHOP, VIEWS OVER THE COUNTRYSIDE AND TOWN OF LOSTWITHIEL. THIS PROPERTY OFFERS PLENTY OF SCOPE FOR FLEXIBLE ACCOMMODATION AND POTENTIAL LETTING INCOME.
Formerly the ancient capital of the County, Lostwithiel occupies an attractive valley setting and is regarded as one of Cornwall's most attractive small towns. There is a real sense of community here, with shops for most day to day needs, lovely pubs and restaurants, a doctor’s surgery, modern dental surgery, and access to the beautiful waters of the Fowey River. The town also has a main line Railway Station with links to Paddington, London. Two local schools provide education for primary school age children. There are many world class gardens to be found in the immediate area and the fascinating Eden Project with its futuristic biomes is just a few miles away. There are good road links to the motorway system via the A38/A30, and there are flights to London from Newquay.
Built in the late 1800's by the most prominent Cornish architect of the 19th century, Silvanus Trevail, and lived in by his sister, Treganatha does not disappoint. With many period features, this home has been loved and carefully updated by the current owners without losing any of its character or grandeur.
You are welcomed into the property via an inner entrance porch with original Victorian floor tiles. A large, wide, solid wooden door opens into a spacious yet welcoming entrance hall with doors leading into a study, sitting room and dining room (currently being used as a second sitting room). The main staircase rises up to the first floor where views from the landing look over the rooftops to Lostwithiel. A cupboard under the stairs provides useful storage.
From the sitting room double doors open into a conservatory with access out to the attractive paved patio area and from there you can take in views over the rear garden to Lostwithiel and beyond. Large sash windows fill the sitting room with light and a modern gas fire set within a beautiful marble fire place and hearth makes the room cosy in the darker months.
The second reception room, once a dining area has an original, large ornate wooden fire place befitting of its past and is a real focal point to the room.
The owners have recently remodelled some of the ground floor layout and have created a bedroom, shower room and utility room. This could easily become a self contained unit for extended family or to provide income.
Further doors open into an office, separate WC and a door to the rear garden. A secondary staircase raises to the first floor.
The modern and sophisticated kitchen/breakfast room has been created by the current owners with great care and attention, Shaker styled kitchen units with an island/breakfast bar finished with white marble worktops, cleverly combine storage/work space with a social element when cooking .
Space for a double oven, dishwasher and freestanding fridge freezer, the room also offers space for an informal dining area. Double doors open into an attractive courtyard, a great area for barbecuing and which houses an original well - a real focal point. Wooden gates afford privacy and give access to the car parking area.
The first floor can be accessed via the main staircase and a secondary staircase which again could offer flexible accommodation if needed. There are 5 bedrooms on this floor with the rear facing principal bedroom and bedroom one enjoying views out over the countryside and landscaped garden. From the principal bedroom, views over the town of Lostwithiel can also be appreciated. From bedroom one a door gives access to a Jack and Jill styled shower room.
A further three bedrooms are front facing with bedroom three still having its original fire place. Also on this floor there is a generous bathroom, shower room and separate WC.
Large wooden double gates open onto a substantial gravelled parking area giving Treganatha its grand appeal. A double garage/ workshop has stairs rising to a first floor which is used for storage. This again has the potiental to be converted, with the correct planning permissions into accommodation, again offering flexibility to families or another income stream.
Along the side of the house the owners have created a flourishing vegetable patch with greenhouse and summerhouse with a lawn that sweeps round to the rear garden. An area of slate chippings is useful for play equipment and a wooden shed for storage.
The generous, south facing patio area is the ideal place to sit, relax in the sun and unwind with a covered veranda offering shade or shelter if needed!
