This impressive grade II listed, six bedroom former rectory, is located within its own extensive grounds comprising of a large level lawned garden which abuts St Johns Leat, duck pond with a central island, and a small area of woodland, the total extending to 2.8 acres. In addition there is an adjacent barn, available by separate negotiation, with planning permission to convert into a three bedroom residential property, under planning reference 85/0329/flb. The Rectory itself has been formerly utilised as a bed and breakfast accommodation, and had permission for change of use to a commercial boutique guest house granted under application number 09/01631/ful on 21st of December 2009. Comprising of the aforementioned six bedrooms, three of which benefit from en-suite facilities, family bathroom and additional bathroom, drawing room, formal dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, utility, further sitting room, and two store rooms, successive owners have chosen to make their mark on the property, with continual improvement, providing the delightful character home we enjoy today. Such features include the multi paned sash windows, high skirtings, numerous feature fireplaces, slate flagged floors, ceiling roses and moulded covings, not to mention the delightfully high ceilings, which create a feeling of light and space, and the rounded bays to the master bedroom and drawing room. A viewing is recommended at the earliest possible opportunity, as a property of this stature, in such a privileged location, is sure to be appreciated. The pretty village of St. John nestles within a wooded valley, set amongst fields which lead to the creek edge. To the north, the parish is bordered by St. John's Lake, which is known locally for its wildfowl and surrounding footpaths, with the nearby south-west coast path passing above the spectacular beaches of the Rame Peninsula as it winds its way to the picturesque villages of Kingsand and Cawsand. The nearby town of Torpoint is within easy motoring distance, with Plymouth located on the opposite side of the Tamar estuary, being accessed from Torpoint by a continual car ferry service.
