About the Property and Location

As soon as you enter this elegant period property, you immediately feel part of its history and as a discerning buyer, you could be part of its future too! St Cyors dates back to the early 1800s with the history continuing as you enter the cobbled courtyard where you will find St Cyors Well House. St Cyors Well House is a holy well believed to date back to the 15th Century. Although the well is dry, as the stream which supplied the water was diverted away from the well in the last century, the local people still venerate it, leaving gifts of fruit, flowers and candles in the well house. It is a good example of a holy well having a basin inside a well chamber, and a well house built over the top. On the west wall is a moulded step or platform of Pentewan stone projecting out of the wall, originally designed to display a figure, probably of the saint to whom the well was dedicated. . The exterior of the property is also generous in size and benefits from patio areas, raised garden, orchard style garden and insulated Art Studio with garden and fabulous countryside views, ideal for crafting inspiration. Cobbled side access housing the oil tank. Generous garage/workshop and parking. The village of Luxulyan is well respected, with its warm community spirit, friendly local hostelry, village store and post office, primary school, village Church and railway station (branch line). St Sulien was abbott here during the 16th Century and the church may have been dedicated to to him but is now dedicated to St Cyriacus and St Julitta. There are roads in Luxulyan named after all three saints. For those potentially looking at B&B accommodation, the property is just a short distance from the World Famous Eden Project. For a true feel of the countryside and area, take a walk through the tranquil Luxulyan Valley, with its natural-looking slopes, mature trees and trilling streams. The Treffry viaduct, with a height of 27 metres, crosses the valley. The Clay Trails, a network of walking, cycling and riding trails are close by meandering through mid-Cornwall's China Clay Country. The market town of St Austell is just four miles distant and offers a comprehensive range of amenities including shopping complex, mainline railway station to London Paddington, Leisure Centre, Library, Cinema, Bowling Alley and a range of public houses. In addition there are primary and secondary schools and Cornwall College.

Information from the Agent

The property is delightful in its current format, there is also plenty of scope for those wishing to reconfigure areas to meet their own requirements. Some of our thoughts include removal of the internal entrance porch which could create additional space for the larger family, with the original kitchen becoming the dining area. For another family, the original kitchen could be reinstated and the current kitchen/breakfast Room could become a reception room for entertaining or even an additional lounge area. The property could easily be sub-divided for the extended family. If a garage is not important, perhaps with relevant permissions an annexe could be created. Whilst we love the property just as it is, the versatile design offers the discerning buyer the opportunity to create their very own unique and stylish home in this highly regarded location.

Viewing

Strictly by appointment with the managing agent Jefferys. If you would like to arrange an appointment to view this property, or require any further information, please contact the office on 01726 73483.
