    About this property

    • The front entrance is on a raised porch and the glazed front door enters an interior porch, with good coat and boot storage space.

      The interior glazed door leads into an attractive hall from which double doors open into a large, light drawing room with a wide bay window to the front and patio doors to the patio and landscaped rear garden. A multi fuel burner occupies the hearth and as throughout the house, central heating is in the form of radiators. Decorative details such as a central ceiling rose and architrave add to the elegance of the room.

      Across the hall is a dining room, also with a bay window overlooking the front entrance and a window to the side garden. With room for a large family dining table this room is pleasant and frequently used.

      Next is the office, usefully shelved and with a window to the side garden. Adjoining is the utility room and glazed back door to the garden. Here is the invertor for the solar power and room for a range of appliances as well as a large store cupboard and gas boiler.

      Finally, the kitchen, spacious and very practical with numerous fitted units and a newly installed electric range cooker. Beyond the dividing counter is an area for a breakfast table or, as is currently arranged, comfortable seating for maximum enjoyment of the morning sun and the view over the garden, accessed here by another set of patio doors.

      Back in the hall there is a modern cloakroom and wc, spacious storage cupboard and an alcove under the stairs.

      Stairs turn to the first floor, with a small window on the half landing and then a turn along a short hallway into the principal bedroom suite. Generously proportioned with plenty of space in the bedroom, the dressing room and the en suite bathroom, this area has a very restful atmosphere, enhanced by the views from three windows over the garden and woodland. Large built-in wardrobes, a walk-through dressing room and the bathroom with freestanding shower add to a sense of convenience and privacy at this end of the house.

      Back on the landing is a deep airing cupboard and then a double bedroom, currently used as an artist's studio, full of natural light, a feature throughout these upper rooms with their wide windows.

      Next is the family bathroom adjoining another double bedroom which overlooks the entrance and drive on the east aspect, therefore benefitting from the morning sun and views towards the fairways.

      The fourth double bedroom is an en suite, also with generous storage and a bathroom with freestanding shower. This has the pretty view over the landscaped formal garden.

      The gated entrance opens from the private estate drive into a block paved parking area in front of a double garage. The wrap around garden is secure, with a mature hedge and high wooden fence.

      A locked gate enters the private garden and paved patio onto which the patio doors open from the kitchen and drawing room. This area is a suntrap to be enjoyed all day. Along with a wood framed greenhouse and raised beds this garden has been laid out to be productive and attractive with mature shrubs and perennials. A lawn and decking on the west side of the garden is ideal for relaxing in the evening sun, as is the paved patio outside the sitting room. A shadier lawned area alongside the garage looks out to the leat that runs well below the perimeter hedge to join a stream that drains away from the course and the estate road.

    Local information

    • Oak Ford is a private estate of thirteen houses in a secluded position at the edge of Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Club, reached by driving past the hotel and leisure facilities, along the edge of the course to its wooded, western valley.
    • The club opened in 1993 as a golf and country club and was bought three years later by the Bond family, well known for establishing St Mellion, a European Tour Course, which hosted many international golfers. The Hotel opened in 2006.
    • In such a tranquil, landscaped location it is not obvious that Bodmin, with all its facilities and services, is so conveniently close by, while in the opposite direction is the elegant National Trust owned Lanhydrock House and over 800 acres of parkland, bordered by the beautiful River Fowey. The historic town of Lostwithiel is just a few miles beyond, beside the river.
