SITUATION Torpoint is a civil Parish and town on the Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall opposite the city of Plymouth across the Hamoaze which is the tidal estuary of the River Tamar. Torpoint has a population currently in the region of 9000. The town is linked to Plymouth by the Torpoint ferry which operates three vessels that run every 15 minutes with the journey taking approximately seven minutes. Easily accessible to Devonport Dockyard, the town is also the home of the Royal Navy's main training facility HMS Raleigh. As well as a full range of amenities, Torpoint Infant School, Carbeile Junior School and Torpoint Community College provide a full platform of education. Twinned with Benodet in Brittany, Torpoint is an 18th Century planned town and was commissioned by Reginald Pole Carew in the Parish of Antony in 1774. The family continue to have a strong influence in the area and reside at nearby Antony House. Torpoint gives access to the beautiful surrounding countryside including waterside delights such as the twinned villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, Cremyll, Mount Edgcumbe and Maker, Millbrook, Seaton and Downderry.
Plymouth is a city adjacent to one of the most natural harbours in the world. To the North is the Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles and which provides excellent recreational facilities. Plymouth itself has a population of well over 200,000 and has a full range of shopping, educational and sporting facilities. There is mainline train service to London (Paddington) and to Penzance in West Cornwall. Plymouth has its own airport with flights to London (Gatwick) and other inland destinations. Brittany Ferries operates seasonal services from Plymouth to France and Northern Spain.
Coupled alongside the aforementioned period features are modern benefits such as gas central heating, a contemporary beech effect fitted kitchen incorporating fitted oven, hob and extractor hood, a stylish and spacious principal bathroom with a double tiled shower enclosure and panelled bath, whilst the property is very well presented throughout. The versatile accommodation lends itself for use as a flat-let on the ground floor with principal living accommodation over for those looking to provide accommodation for an older relative. Cornerstone Court is located in the heart of Torpoint, just a stone's throw from the town centre and a short walk from the Torpoint ferry link to the city of Plymouth. There are no parking restrictions.
Number 1 Cornerstone Court is arguably the largest and most architecturally interesting example of one of these townhouses converted from Torpoint Congregational Church approximately five years ago. The church was constructed circa 1850 and was converted to an extremely high standard with a great deal of care and sympathy afforded to it. This townhouse incorporates the original main entrance, worship room and Sunday school room with features including lovely curved walls in the master bedroom and living room, a beautiful period fireplace in the living room which has a vaulted ceiling and an outstanding, arched, stained glass window in the dining area. The versatile and well conceived accommodation is arranged over three floors and includes a spacious entrance vestibule with limestone flagged flooring and a large reception hall that are accessed from the huge original front door. A winding staircase ascends through the building with the accommodation including, to the ground floor: large master bedroom, bedroom four, a shower room and a large well equipped utility room. To the first floor: a large and beautiful lounge/diner, a luxurious and large principal bathroom, a well fitted kitchen and on the second floor two further well proportioned bedrooms. Outside there is a level and enclosed gated courtyard with traditional flagstone finish.
