About this property

  • Converted in 2006, this enchanting property combines stone elevations under a slate roof, with traditional timbers and modern double glazed windows and doors to create a welcoming atmosphere in this charming family home.

    The property has recently been re-decorated and upgraded throughout, including a new kitchen and utility room, upgraded double glazed windows, a new family shower room, double oak car port, paved driveway and home office.

    Approached via a quiet lane, also a no-through road, a paved driveway with plenty off parking and turning space leads to a timber framed car port and storage building, with electric supply. From here, steps lead down to a sheltered terrace and seating area, where a pair of French doors open to a substantial entrance porch, leading to the ground floor accommodation.

    A welcoming open-plan kitchen and dining room, with seating area and a bespoke fitted kitchen and island unit with 6 ring Bosch Induction hob, are complemented by an Esse range cooker and selection of integral appliances. There is under-floor heating and two pairs of bi-folding doors which open from the dining area to the terrace and garden.

    There is also a utility room and study/bedroom on the ground floor, which has French doors to the garden. Steps lead down to the lower ground floor, where there is a snug/sitting area with a selection of fitted book cases and a door to a south facing terrace. Two double bedrooms (1 en suite) and a further shower room complete the accommodation on this level.

    On the first floor there is a spacious dual aspect reception room with vaulted ceiling and exposed timber beams, a wood burner and French doors to a decked balcony overlooking the gardens. The principal bedroom with en suite bathroom is also on this floor.

    Outside, the gardens wrap around the building to the north and east, intersected by a mature copse of woodland, within which there is a newly built tree house with deck area, and sheltered hot tub terrace, with 6 person Cornish Hot Tub, both of which enjoy far-reaching views to Bodmin moor.

    To the north is a tree lined paddock with wildflower areas, within which there is a modern detached home office with electric and internet connection. To the east of the main house is a substantial south facing area of level lawn, with barbeque area and a summer house/studio, which could be used as a secondary home office if required.
