Castle Street Price: £675,000
Near the headquarters of Poldark Tours in Launceston, this Grade II-listed Georgian house is moments away from the town’s 13th century castle.
Eagle House, an imposing red-brick mansion, has up to 15 bedroom suites with bathrooms.
The 11,150 sq ft property was used as a prison for Napololeonic naval officers, who are thought to be responsible for the French eagles over the gate pillars.
More recently, it was used as a hotel but has received planning permission to be changed back into a residential dwelling.
It has four reception rooms, a conservatory, a terrace, a lawn and a stretch of woodland. Agent: Knight Frank (01392 247883; knightfrank.co.uk)
