LOCATION The development of Oakridge lies in a sheltered valley on the southern edge of St Mellion Golf Course not visible from the public highway, and surrounded by open country and with direct access to the Golf Resort, despite the golf location this setting also appeals to nature lovers and lies in close proximity to the Tamar Valley AONB and historic properties including Pentillie Castle and Cotehele House.

This appealing and unusual setting comprises 20 lodges developed on a green field site about a mile from the villages of St Mellion and Pillaton, in the beautiful rolling countryside of South East Cornwall. Accessibility is good with the A388 Callington to Saltash road within a mile of the property giving quick access to the A38 & Plymouth. The upper floor of the house has been designed to take advantage of the views over the beautiful woodland and surrounding countryside.

DESCRIPTION This detached lodge style house is designed with reverse level accommodation, allowing the upper level the advantage of fine views over the beautiful wooded valley. The property is of interesting architectural appeal and is ideally suited to investors and those seeking a rural retreat with the ability to enjoy the facilities that the adjacent St Mellion International Golf Resort offers, including its highly popular leisure facilities. The planning restriction limits the use of the property to use as a 'non principal residence'.

The main feature of the house is the open plan principal living room with partially vaulted ceiling, open fireplace and French doors leading onto the balcony with fine views. The property was constructed in 1998. The occupancy is limited to the following use "the lodge shall be used for holiday purposes only and should not be used as the main residence for any person", we understand that there is no restriction on length of stay.
