IMPRESSIVE 5 BEDROOM RESIDENCE, 2 BEDROOM SINGLE STOREY COTTAGE, WONDERFUL GROUNDS OF APPROX. 9 ACRES, PADDOCKS, GARDENS & WOODLAND. TOGETHER WITH RIVER FRONTAGE ON THE TAMAR.

DESCRIPTION If you a looking for a lifestyle change with options to run your own business, or simply two very individual and well presented homes in an idyllic setting within very private and attractive grounds of about 9 acres, then Newmoor Park will offer all this! The main house has been used as a very successful B&B due to the high standard of accommodation, including the luxury en-suite facilities. Previously achieving two Trip Advisor Travellers Choice Awards. Currently the Cottage is used by another family member and therefore both homes are well suited for dual family occupancy, or could provide further income streams as a holiday or residential letting property. The grounds also offer options for equine or animal enthusiasts. Some of the land could be used for a small campsite and there are currently two purpose built bases for "Yurts" which have provided further income in the past. In all this residence offers many opportunities, with potential for several income streams and MUST BE VIEWED to fully appreciate what is on offer and the location.



SITUATION AND LOCATION Newmoor Park has an attractive woodland setting on the side of the Tamar Valley with a south-west facing outlook over its own land towards the river. The property lies on the Devon side of the county boundary with Cornwall, approximately one and a half miles from Launceston. The A30 dual carriageway is only a short drive away allowing an easy commute to Exeter (about 50 minutes), the M5 motorway or further West into Cornwall.



The towns skyline is dominated by the ruins of a Norman castle that stands high on a hillside with dramatic views over Bodmin moor and Dartmoor. Also situated between the north and south coasts, so is convenient for beaches and the Cornish countryside. The surrounding area offers leisure for all types; facilities include two golf courses and Roadford Lake Country Park where visitors can fish for trout, sail, windsurf, cycle, row, kayak and camp. Launceston has a busy pedestrianised shopping centre with plenty of big names alongside quirky independent shops. Out of town there is a Marks and Spencer Food Hall, Tesco, Argos and Pets at Home, to name a few.

OUTSIDE DRIVE/PARKING: The property is approached from the road down a short stone track through the woodland forking off to a private driveway via double opening wooden gates. This opens up to the extensive gravelled PARKING AREA providing space for many vehicles including horse boxes, tractors, trailers, motorhomes, caravans etc.



GARDENS: The Cottage is accessed by a brick paved path shared with the main house to its own pleasant brick paved patio with ornamental fishpond to side and pedestrian gate leading to the rear track. The other side has its own sheltered side garden with a decked patio and raised beds stocked with a variety of flowering shrubs and flowers. To the front is a small area of decking and a wooden store housing the LPG bottles for the gas hob.



The House has a low boundary rendered wall to its formal front gardens which offer a mix of gravelled and lawned areas with a wealth of trees, shrubs and flowers. There is also a very private lawn and gravelled side garden which can be accessed from the lean-to and in the main garden is a timber SUMMERHOUSE. Trellis and gated access leads to an enclosed ORCHARD with a variety of fruit trees, with a five bar gate giving access to a small area of WOODLAND, POLY TUNNEL (in need of some attention), uncultivated VEGETABLE GARDEN, TIMBER SHED and DUCK POND.



MEADOW/PADDOCKS: Beyond the vegetable garden lies an open MEADOW surrounded by mature tree boundaries and could be enclosed for grazing animals. Currently there are two dedicated bases for YURTS and this area could be further developed as a small CAMPSITE to generate further income.



From the parking area double wooden gates open into extensive MEADOW/PADDOCKS which are bounded by the western and southerly boundaries of the River Tamar, providing productive grassland and are a haven for wildlife. There is a wooden platform around a mature tree providing an elevated seating area to admire the river and the surrounding grounds. From here there is another potential paddock which has been left to grass and wild flowers, with a mowed path around the perimeter. There is the remains of a former railway line with raised embankment and bridge which goes over a natural WILDLIFE POND. In total there is approximately 4 acres of potential grazing on the property.



RIVERBANK: The River Tamar forms the western boundary of the property offering pleasant seating areas to enjoy the riverside setting and in particular one near the house overlooking a large pool in the river.



WOODLAND: The bank to the rear of the house has established broadleaf woodland with oak, sycamore and many other trees again providing attractive woodland wildlife environment and your own firewood.

DIRECTIONS Travelling west-bound on the A30 dual carriageway from Okehampton/Exeter take the exit for Lifton and Liftondown. Turn left under the dual carriageway and passing through Liftondown on the A388, continue for about a mile and as the road drops down through woodlands the entrance to the track will be seen on the left hand side clearly marked Newmoor Farm. However it may be easiest to continue and taking the next right to turn round for an easier turn into the drive. Continue down the drive bearing right into the private driveway.



AGENTS NOTES NOTE ONE: At the fork to the house the track continues to the rear of the house, leading up to an adjacent property which has a right of way down the track. They also contribute to the upkeep of the track.



NOTE TWO: There are fishing rights along the river which are reserved and owned by the Arundel Arms at Lifton and thus fishermen have rights of access along the riverbank for fishing purposes.
