LeGrys Bespoke bring to the market a superb 4 bedroom property located in Lewannick. Kellys House is steeped in history and is one of only a handful of properties that still retains an abundance of original features.
Dating back to 1600, the house was originally a coaching inn complete with adjoining stables and ironmongery and it sits perfectly in the rural countryside in a small hamlet just outside Lewannick. In the late 1800’s, the local carpenters’ workshop was located in one of the adjoining properties where it is said they used to make coffins for the local area.
The owners have the original deeds to the property with the earliest ones dating back to 1651, all on old parchment paper with ink calligraphy writing.
Step back in time as you approach the property with its pretty wrought iron gate and see the original cobblestones that the current owners are uncovering and the attractive front lawn with established apple trees, a seating area to enjoy a coffee and a delightful rustic shed/bike store.
Within the property itself, every room oozes character, from large Inglenook fireplaces, cloam ovens, wood burners for cosy winter evenings, original Delabole slate floors, all original ceiling beams which meander across the ceilings, a curved staircase (where it is believed an old priest hole is underneath!), exposed stonework walls, and original floorboards within the master bedroom which undulate in the most attractive way.
The large back garden has the benefit of two useful sheds for garden storage along with an insulated shed, complete with electrics and lighting, which is currently used as a home office.
However, this house has been lovingly refurbished over the past few years and not overlooking the obvious appeal of the property, it benefits from a new boiler and old fashioned radiators throughout the house, a complete electrical rewire and replumb, new oil tank to fire the central heating, new kitchen, utility room, bathrooms, drainage and single glaze handmade wood windows throughout, all completed to a very high standard and harmonious with the character of the property and in line with Grade 2 listed planning.
This is an amazingly unique opportunity to purchase a historic building with an abundance of original and historic features, which creates a large family home of comfort, practicality and beauty, with the assurance of so much work having been completed
