This former coach house and stables is the perfect country retreat or family home, set within the grounds of The Old Rectory in Sheviock. Maintained to a high standard, this cottage takes your breath away the moment you walk through the door; with its vaulted ceiling hallway, contemporary décor, luscious garden and combination of hardwood / porcelain tile flooring.
Clematis provides generous accommodation across two floors, which briefly consists of; four bedrooms, two living rooms, kitchen, pantry area, dining room, sun room, family bathroom and en-suite shower room to the master bedroom. The grounds include a traditional country garden with slate patio and pond to the rear, with parking for multiple vehicles to the front.
This charming cottage appears to be steeped in history, yet boasts the facilities of a comfortable modern home. It is believed the property was once used as The Sheviock gallery, where renowned artists such as Peter Lanyon, Paul Feiler and Peter Thursby exhibited their work.
You enter through a wooden door into a surprisingly spacious hall with feature staircase and dining area. Following through you step into the expansive living room which is flooded with light from the Georgian style curved window, and modern open plan kitchen, into the pantry / prep area with views out onto the rear garden. Two bedrooms with in-built storage, a family bathroom and then sun room, lead onto French doors and garden beyond.
This level enjoys dramatic sloping ceilings that add character to the already impressive features enjoyed throughout the accommodation. Two further bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room) are located at opposite ends of the first floor. They are separated by a second living room that benefits from a well-positioned balcony.
The south west facing garden is truly breath-taking, and is mostly laid to lawn with mature shrubbery at the borders, affording further privacy in the already remote country setting. Directly from the sun room, a slate patio with attractive pergola invites you to entertain guests or simply relax in the beautiful surroundings. A fish pond separates the top and bottom lawns, with a few steps and leads to a sizeable garden shed.
To the front of the property, a traditional cobbled drive allows parking for multiple vehicles and provides provenance to the history of this former coach house.
Sheviock is a small village with a Church which was dedicated to St Peter and St Paul on 13th October 1259. Much of this church still reveals its 13th century and 14th century origins, especially the tower which is unique in Cornwall having a spire. Sheviock is bounded on the north by St Germans Creek, on the east by Antony, on the south by Whitsand Bay, and on the west by St Germans.
The tiny harbour of Port Wrinkle was once an important fishing centre, today the area is popular for holidays.
The proximity to the South Cornish coast is such that it is in a desirable location enjoying relatively easy accessibility to the market town of Liskeard and similarly to the City of Plymouth via the Torpoint Ferry or alternatively the Tamar Bridge. The town of Torpoint is approximately 5 miles away, offering a range of services including primary and secondary schooling and some shopping facilities.
The Rame Peninsula offers some delightful scenery with Whitsand Bay on one side and the Lynher River on the other. The sailing enthusiast is spoilt for some of the finest coastal sailing in the West Country along with the waters of Plymouth Sound, the Hamoaze and Lynher River. Other sporting facilities included numerous golf courses including Whitsand and St Mellion, and miles of the most breath-taking scenery to be had along the South West coastal path.
