'Staplehurst' is a pre-war bungalow which we believe was built during the 1930's of traditional concrete block construction. The property has been significantly improved and modernised by the current owners since moving here in 2008. This included a new kitchen and bathroom, upgrading the electrics, installing a gas fired central heating system, cavity wall and loft insulation, some new double glazing and general redecoration.
The property boasts a desirable location within one of the town's most discreet areas and is virtually a level walk to the main shopping street. Lostwithiel offers a range of amenities, including a variety of shops, restaurants, public houses, professional services, dentist and health centre. Also a main line railway station on the Penzance to London line, a choice of two primary schools and a pre-school. A purpose built community centre is located next to the 'King George V playing field' which borders the River Fowey. The 'Eden Project' is a 10-15 minute drive west of the town and sandy beaches are dotted along St Austell Bay on the nearby south coast.
