Lower Brazacott Farm, North Petherwin, Launceston, PL15 8NE

Lower Brazacott Farm is situated within the tranquillity of Brazacott, a hamlet which lies within the rural parish of North Petherwin and a short distance from the ancient Cornish capital of Launceston. Rarely will one find such unspoilt quietness in a location such as this.

The property is detached and set back in its own courtyard, approached from the country road via its own private driveway. Said to date back to the mid 1700's and is abundant with charm and character, Lower Brazacott retains the features which one would associate with a property of this era. Combine this beautiful property with its excellent equestrian or smallholding facilities, its views over its own pasture and surrounding farmland and Dartmoor in the distance, make Lower Brazacott Farm a gem.

Whilst retaining its features Lower Brazacott Farm has the benefit of a new roof in recent years, the roof space is boarded to cover the entire roof floor, double glazing throughout and oil fired central heating
