Former farmhouse with spectacular panoramic views, impressive accommodation and beautifully maintained gardens & grounds of 8 acres, complimented by a range of superb outbuildings. This stunning country residence sits in an elevated position which affords views that stretch far into the distance across miles of wonderful countryside to Dartmoor in the distance.
The house is a charming stone built farmhouse dating from around 1576. The property has been extended and thoroughly refurbished to an exceptionally high standard throughout. The accommodation has been tastefully updated, retaining many original features with the added charm of being set out over several levels. With a triple aspect, the galleried sitting room really does take your breath away. Wonderful views are combined with a stunning ceiling of arched beams complimented with a raised mezzanine study area at the far end. The snug has a very traditional feel with its wonderful granite fireplace complete with clome oven, making a very relaxing space. The kitchen is set out in a galley style with a raised breakfast area to one end with views across the countryside. The bedrooms are all very comfortable with the master suite on the first floor and a guest bedroom with an open plan bathroom on the ground floor as well as two further bedrooms for family and friends to enjoy.
The gardens are beautiful with a spacious patio to enjoy the views directly from the house as well as numerous vantage points around the garden. The immediate gardens sweep around the house with an attractive orchard at one side. The stables and outbuildings are set behind the house and offer a wide range of uses beyond the obvious equestrian angle, ideal for any car enthusiast or collector. Beyond the barns there is a sand school and a series of paddocks which wrap around the property creating a wonderful ring fence.
Westerlands sits amidst the attractive, unspoilt, rolling countryside of the Devon/Cornwall borders close to the River Tamar Valley. Also within 10-15 minutes’ drive there are 4 village stores, 3 with post office counters, and two farm shops. Launceston is a traditional Cornish town with its medieval castle and wide range of local facilities.
The popular town of Tavistock provides excellent private educational facilities, with Mount House Preparatory School and Kelly College. There is good riding out from the house to the rugged Bodmin Moor made famous by the Poldark series and to the east is the Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its spectacular scenery and providing excellent opportunities for walking, riding and fishing and to the north is the spectacular North Cornish coast. Nearer to hand there is the famous St. Mellion golf course and trout and salmon fishing opportunities on the River Tamar.
