Property description

A deceptive older style Detached Bungalow which has been in the same ownership for approximately 30 years and during this time has been well maintained. In the last few years further improvements have made been with the installation of a new mains gas combination boiler, re-roofed with new felt and tiles where required and new front door. Also, in May 2021 the property had a mundic test done which confirmed it was of Class A1 and A2 and therefore mortgageable.

The accommodation offers a 30ft Entrance Hallway, 2 Reception Rooms both with deep front bay windows enjoying distant countryside views, 2 Double Bedrooms, one with a range of built-in wardrobes and a Third Bedroom which is currently set up as a Study, Bathroom which has a separate Shower, modern Kitchen/Breakfast Room with archway through to a Pantry with cupboards and space for white goods. An extensive 25ft Conservatory with access to a very useful Utility and Storage Room. The property also has the added benefit of a very large Attic Space with unrestricted ceiling height and subject to any necessary planning consents could be converted to create additional accommodation if required, which could incorporate a front dormer window to maximise those superb distant countryside views. The gardens offer ease of maintenance with the rear garden being fairly private and views over to the Castle. There is also a Driveway, attached Garage, Octagonal Greenhouse and Block Built Garden Store/Workshop. 

LOCATION Mount Wise is a well established cul-de-sac and only a few minutes walk to the town centre. Launceston is known as the gateway to the county and sits on the Devon border. The town's skyline is dominated by the ruins of a Norman castle that stands high on a hillside with dramatic views over Bodmin moor and Dartmoor. The castle was a strategically important building after the Norman Conquest and its green was used for executions until the 19th century. Situated between the north and south coasts, Launceston is convenient for beaches and coastal or country walks. There are two golf courses at Trethorne and Launceston, with Roadford Lake Country Park where visitors can fish for trout, sail, windsurf, cycle, row, kayak and camp. Shopping facilities include quirky independent shops, Tesco and Marks and Spencer Food Hall, Argos, Pets at Home, to name a few. The renowned Garden Centre at Homeleigh is on the edge of the town, drawing in many visitors with restaurant and coffee shop overlooking a lake.
