LOCATION West Tober lies deep in the romantic moorland landscape of Bodmin Moor, within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and within the Bodmin Moor International Dark Sky designated environment. This really is a wild and unspoilt setting, the house sits low in a natural fold and has a south facing aspect. The awe inspiring landscape is visible from all parts of the property and includes Brockabarrow Common to the south and various Tors including the majestic heights of Brown Willy in the north.
Whilst enjoying splendid isolation the location remains highly accessible with the A30 directly accessible at the end of the 0.80 mile long drive, this provides easy commuting for Bodmin (10 miles), Launceston (12 miles), Truro (35 miles) or Exeter (52 miles). Bodmin Parkway railway station lies 13 miles distant providing a 4 hour journey to London Paddington.
The nearby village of Bolventor is home to the world renowned and historic Jamaica Inn made famous Daphne Du Maurier's novel of the same name. The public house also has a farm shop. The nearby towns of Launceston and Bodmin both provide a wide range of educational, recreational and shopping facilities. The famous surfing beach of Polzeath and the dramatic North Cornish Coastline lie within a 45 minute drive.
DESCRIPTION West Tober provides that rare combination of splendid isolation with a thoroughly charming and historic house which boasts many fascinating and unique features.
There is a combination of heating including wood burners (one with back boiler), oil fired Efel stove and a solid fuel Rayburn. The numerous character features include granite and timber mullion windows, slate flooring, oak panelling, granite arches and lintels. The property also benefits from a spring fed water supply with reservoir and UV treatment.
The spacious and flexible accommodation presents an opportunity to create an annexe wing and the two traditional outbuildings may be considered suitable to provide annexe or holiday accommodation subject to any consents that may be required.
One of the most notable features of the house is the 29' Drawing Room, the room incorporates beautiful exposed beams to the apex, these "cruck barn" beams are believed to date from the 16th century and may have monastic origins, this coupled with the mullion and gothic style windows creates a truly awe inspiring room.
The accommodation extends to about 1846 sq ft and briefly comprises as follows - GROUND FLOOR - Granite Arch with heavy timber door opening to the Triple Aspect Drawing Room - Dining Room with woodburner - Kitchen with Rayburn and Pantry off - Snug with Woodwarm stove with back boiler - Bedroom 4 with Bathroom off. FIRST FLOOR - 3 Double Bedrooms each with a dual aspect.
OUTSIDE West Tober is approached directly from the A30 via a discreet entrance drive which is shared with a number of isolated moorland holdings. The drive is approximately 0.80 mile long, the last 0.25 mile only serves West Tober and the neighbouring moorland. A public footpath passes along the drive and ends at Middle Priddacombe Farm.
Nestled in a small fold in the countryside, the gardens enjoy a surprisingly sheltered and sunny south facing environment and comprise lawned areas interspersed with various flower and shrub beds.
Various outbuildings include - a General Purpose Workshop of about 1861 sq ft, this building has in the past been partially used as stabling - Greenhouse 190 sq ft - Studio 308 sq ft - Playroom/Store 462 sq ft, there is also a compound which could be suitable for use as a kennel area. The studio building together with the playroom/store may be considered suitable for use/conversion to ancillary accommodation subject of course to usual consents.
The land extends to about 13 acres and is laid to pasture with the crystal clear waters of a tributary of the De Lank River forming the western boundary. The land is perfect for those who wish to pursue the equestrian, smallholding or self sufficient lifestyle.
