    About this property

    • In its construction, Trevague Cottage combines traditional stone and slate barn architecture with wooden cladding and contemporary features. It is a wholly successful conversion to a very comfortable, modern family home with the convenience of sustainable energy systems, keeping costs to a minimum.

      The front porch leads to a wide hall and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. To the right is a most attractive, light-filled open plan kitchen with a large dining area. Open A frame beams in light oak combine with the white walls and pale oak floor to accentuate the sense of space. Fitted units (in tasteful, pale green) and a wide island with breakfast bar provide good, practical storage. An extractor fan and dishwasher are already in place, with the choice of cooking range and refrigeration left to the purchaser. As well as ample space for a large dining table, double bi-fold doors open onto a wide terrace, perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining.

      Back through the hall, which is the practical hub of the house, with the guest cloakroom, a good-sized utility room and the plant installation in a useful-sized cupboard, two steps down arrive at the sitting room, south facing, with a bifold door onto the front lawn. This lovely, light room has a feature granite hearth and chimney breast with an inset wood burner.

      A door on the far side opens to the bedroom wing with three double bedrooms, two of them en suite. The first looks onto the lawned garden and terrace and has a nicely tiled private shower room. Next, is the principal bedroom with a feature wooden panelled wall, painted in the subtle green, as seen in the kitchen. This bedroom also overlooks and accesses the rear garden via bifold doors and has a dressing room as well as a spacious shower room, beautifully fitted out.
      In the corridor there is an airing cupboard and then the family bathroom, well designed with a freestanding bath, high quality suite and attractive tiles. Finally, the third bedroom, also of generous size, overlooks the front garden eastwards and the morning sun.

      The interior has been designed to blend practicality with tasteful décor and fittings, finished to a very high standard.

      Landscaping has been carefully considered. As in the interior, craftsmanship has been applied to the design of the garden, with raised wood framed beds and timber retaining walls. The paved terrace adjoining the open plan kitchen /dining area is private and peaceful, overlooked only by the upper level of the garden. A gravelled drive leads to the oak framed car port with adjoining locked store (also the housing for the solar panel controls). A secure fence surrounds the garden (of nearly a quarter of an acre and the entrance has a sturdy Cornish stone hedge. Double gates open from the lane.

    Local information

    • This beautifully converted cottage, surrounded by fields and woodland of the Trebartha Estate, has a neighbouring farmhouse and bungalow, and is situated at the end of a lane less than a mile from the A30, but is blissfully peaceful. Birdsong and the distant sounds of sheep may be all that disturbs the silence.
    • Lewannick is an attractive village a few miles from Launceston with the parish church at its centre, opposite the Archers Arms and close to the village store and post office. There is also a primary school, and half a mile beyond, Coombeshead Farm, an award-winning B&B, bakery and restaurant serving seasonal produce almost exclusively from the farm.
    • Nearby, Launceston, with its hilltop Norman castle, was once the ancient capital of Cornwall. Today it offers a wide range of amenities, including supermarkets, independent and family run businesses, schools, sports clubs and cultural activities and is adjacent to the A30 giving access to Truro and West Cornwall to the west and Exeter and beyond to the east.
