This impressive house presents a rare opportunity for buyers seeking a period home within this historic town, which offers a generous plot and parking facilities. The property would certainly appeal to families, including those with dependants who can utilise the annexe which we understand was converted approximately 26 years ago. All the double glazed sash windows to the front have been fitted recently and the electrics have been upgraded and modern consumer units installed.
The property enjoys an elevated position only part way up Bodmin Hill and just a short walk from the town centre. Lostwithiel offers a good range of amenities which include a variety of shops, restaurants, public houses, professional services, dentist and health centre. There is a main line railway station on the Penzance to London line and a choice of two Primary schools, one of which is just a very short walk from the property. Secondary schools are available at nearby Fowey (7 miles) and Bodmin (5 miles) respectively.

There is a timber shed located towards the front end of the garden, screened by a large fence panel with two apple trees to the rear and a small pond. This upper garden area is the perfect vantage point to enjoy the countryside views. Steps lead down to the rear courtyard which is paved for ease of maintenance and provides the ideal sitting out area. Steps lead down to double wooden gates with access onto Duke Street at the rear.
