We understand that the original bungalow was built in the 1930's and then a single storey extension was added in the 1970's, which the owners currently run as a holiday let called 'Driftwood'. In 2013 a loft conversion was completed which incorporated an additional bedroom and shower room, both of which encompass the views. Significant modernisation and improvement by the current owners both inside and out have really enhanced the property, which also included a new roof and dry lining of walls.
'Trewince Lane' is a discreet non-estate location made up of just five properties on the upper reaches of Bodmin Hill. Lostwithiel is a popular Mid-Cornwall location which is steeped in history and renowned for its vibrant community. The town offers a good range of amenities which includes a variety of shops, restaurants, public houses, professional services, dentist and health centre. There is a mainline train station on the Penzance to London line and a choice of two Primary schools, one of which is just a very short walk from the property. Secondary schools are available at nearby Fowey (7 miles) and Bodmin (5 miles) respectively. A purpose built community centre offers recreational/sporting facilities and is located next to the King George V playing field.

The property is approached to the rear via a shared 'No through' lane off Bodmin Hill, providing access to a sloping concrete driveway with room for two cars and a further parking space in front of the garage. The holiday let/annexe has the benefit of an attractive seating area which is slightly elevated and well secluded. The area immediately outside the main entrance is beautifully appointed and predominantly laid with chippings and paving slabs. From here is a pedestrian side gate which provides access to a stunning garden with glorious views over the town and beyond. The upper section of the garden has a decked verandah with steps down to paved sun terrace with a rockery/flower bed below. Further steps lead down to the lawned garden which enjoys a good degree of privacy and features a decked seating area, vegetable/fruit garden, greenhouse and surrounding flowerbeds.
