Property Overview

The property features from the 1871 Werrington Estate catalogue as being "sturdily stone built". The current accommodation comprises of a spacious entrance hallway, three sitting rooms, large kitchen/dining room, ground floor en-suite shower room, large open first floor landing, six double-bedrooms, two first floor bath/shower rooms, two cloakrooms with W.C. and basin with many fitted cupboards and wardrobes throughout. Off the rear entrance lobby is a utility room, with additional storage and plumbing for sink and washing appliances.
There are four separate entrance doors, all uPVC, and double glazing throughout the property, with the exception of the half landing original timber curved style feature window overlooking the Georgian style stairwell.

Due to the excellent location for travellers to Cornwall and Devon and being situated minutes from both Bodmin Moor and the picturesque Dartmoor, the present owner has successfully established the property as a desirable Airbnb guest house, with two available suites, receiving first rate reviews. There is a pair of connected double rooms on the first floor, and a self-contained apartment on the ground floor with its own entrance and adjacent parking space, one of three parking spaces within the high steel railings, accessed via wide lockable sliding gates.
With so many rooms, a purchasers options are many and varied and the guest accommodation could be doubled, still leaving the large master bedroom, kitchen/diner and main living room private.

Externally there is a stone walled enclosed Cornish slate paved open yard, with a raised decked area and timber pergola to the rear facing southwest, together with a south facing seating area next to the rear porches.
From the house there are southerly views of the famous Launceston Norman castle, immediate access to all local amenities and the Devonshire beaches are little more than a half hour drive away.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
