After spending decades renovating the mansion, outbuildings and grounds of what’s known as Polapit Tamar, in Werrington, near Launceston, the owner decided to sell the large property and surrounding land earlier this year after 55 years in the property of his family.
The sale includes a large mansion with a ballroom, three barn conversions, two pavilions, five one-story chalets, 19 one- and two-bedroom residences, one four-bedroom house, two commercial buildings and approximately 106 acres of land. land land, including two wind turbines that supply the estate with electricity.
Owner George Tucker’s father (also known as George Tucker) bought the property at auction from the bank in 1966 after its previous owner went bankrupt.
He bought it for just Â£ 21,250 – the modern equivalent of around Â£ 400,000 – and the family spent years restoring the property which was described as a mess at the time.
Polapit Tamar is in the market with DR Kivell Country Property, based in Tavistock. You can scroll down for more information and the property in pictures.
