This is an opportunity to purchase a substantial country residence offering versatile accommodation with potential to be converted into two separate dwellings ( Subject to planning) or one very large family home. With gated access the property occupies a generous size plot surrounded by gardens and ample parking with open countryside views towards Plymouth Sound. Set on the edge of a pretty Cornish village within the Tamar Valley the property has evolved over a number of years and was formerly a 75 seat restaurant. At present the property is loosely arranged as a 4 bedroom spacious bungalow with further rooms beneath and a two bedroom first floor apartment which is situated over the former restaurant. The property benefits from uPVC double glazing, ample parking with the space to erect a garage if required and spacious fully glazed conservatory with breath taking views. When the property was constructed the main criteria was light and space and this has plenty of it.

Sleepy Hollow is set in peaceful, rural surroundings, just north of the hamlet of Rising Sun. The property is accessed via its own short tarmac driveway that leads off an adopted minor road linking the main A390 to the village of Harrowbarrow, one mile to the south, and with a Post Office-shop, pub, school, church and village hall. The main A390 is 250 metres to the north of the property and links the main towns of Callington in Cornwall (three miles to the west) and Tavistock in Devon (seven miles to the east). The property is close to a bus route for the town of Saltash (ten miles) and city of Plymouth (15 miles). Plymouth has an extensive shopping centre and main railway station with frequent services into
London Paddington. There are also local railway stations at Gunnislake (two miles) and Calstock (three miles) with direct services into Plymouth. The site is in an elevated position with far-reaching southerly views across open countryside and out towards Plymouth Sound which is 20km (12 miles) away in a direct sight-line. The property is secluded and not overlooked, with only a farm house and converted barn to the south-east, and farm
land and buildings to the north-east. Sleepy Hollow is in the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and surrounded by the Tamar Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The National Trust estate of Cotehele and local beauty spot of Kit Hill are both easily accessible from the property, as is St Mellion International Resort, a prestigious golf, leisure and hotel complex with its pro-standard Kernow and Jack Nicklaus Signature Courses
