    About this property

    • Completed in 2021, Oakwood House was constructed of traditional materials, notably De Lank granite, used extensively externally and as a feature of the interior.

      The front door opens into a foyer and then a massive living/kitchen/dining room, such a pleasant open plan space, entirely contemporary, yet with the welcoming atmosphere of a comfortable farmhouse. This open plan space is naturally lit from windows on three aspects as well as the glazed, vaulted entrance.

      At the far end a wood burner is set into the granite hearth and a feature granite wall. It suggests a country house from an earlier age, but on turning to the kitchen, modern design and technology is used here for efficiency with two NEFF ovens, induction hob and inbuilt air filter, a supersized fridge and a walk-in pantry of generous proportions.

      A very attractive, unusual granite is used for the worktops and on the large island and breakfast bar. However, attention is also drawn to the deeply rural view from the picture window above the kitchen sink, a sure distraction from peeling potatoes! A large, family-sized dining table fits with room to spare between the kitchen island and the patio doors that open onto the garden terrace. Opening the doors would provide an extended entertaining space on the large, sheltered paved area terrace, though the lovely room can also accommodate plenty of people. It is unusual for a modern open plan living room to be so spacious and so cosy, but this one is.

      Adjoining is a large sitting room also with double patio doors, to the front garden and the peaceful view. Opposite this is a prettily decorated wc with handbasin. Next is a bathroom, nicely tiled, with a freestanding bath, a wide shower and low-level night lights, conveniently next to a large double bedroom. It has large inbuilt wardrobes and is double aspect, overlooking the fields to the rear of the house.

      A door leads to the rather roomy utility/laundry/store and bootroom, and from there, the rear porch and back door. It is worth noting that the configuration of these rooms would make it simple to create a separate self-contained wing, simply by installing a door in the hall.

      A bespoke oak staircase with glass balustrade turns to the first floor which offers more versatile space. The landing has a vaulted ceiling and a gallery bridge connects the three bedrooms with lots of usable space between the two sides. To the left is a large double bedroom, its pitched, beamed ceiling creating a cosiness despite the abundant light from south-west facing windows and far reaching county views. There is ample fitted storage and the en suite shower room is also generously proportioned.

      On the right side is another front facing bedroom, with the same lovely view, currently used as an office with extensive under eaves storage cupboards.

      Finally, the principal bedroom suite extends over the rear of the house, with glazed double doors opening onto a decked balcony to take advantage of the peaceful location. Meadows, a green lane, woodland and to the east, the gentle rise to Castle an Dinas, provide an engaging landscape in any season. The bedroom features a bed that stands free from any wall with a frame surrounding it, fitted with integrated bedside lights and a dainty chandelier above. The en suite bathroom is attractively fitted with black and white tiles and muted green panelled walls.

      This is an attractive house throughout, tastefully decorated; full of natural light, designed light fittings, pale wood floors and deep carpets. Its style is at the same time contemporary and homely.

      The three quarters of an acre garden has been nicely landscaped. Double gates from the lane open into a wide drive with a carport and garage, the upper storey of which a has boarded floor. A gate opens to a paved courtyard and triple sectioned workshop and tool store, also housing the bore hole filters. A six-person hot tub occupies a private corner, close to the door into the rear porch. The already mentioned paved terrace stretches the length of the house and is sunk below the upper terrace of the lawned garden, protected by an impressive stone hedge. The whole site is surrounded by traditional Cornish hedging and and recently planted oaks, amongst mature lime and ash trees. The lawned garden offers plenty of playing space for children and pets and has attractively planted flower beds, a functioning fountain, Victorian style garden lamps and external lights triggered by sensors, also controlled remotely by an app as are the CCTV cameras.

    Local information

    • Tresaddern is a small hamlet overlooking a wooded valley and open farmland beyond, a quiet backwater between St Columb and the A30.
    • East of Oakwood House the land rises to Castle an Dinas, one of the largest and most impressive hillforts in Cornwall, sited in an imposing position on the summit of Castle Downs with extensive and panoramic views across central Cornwall to both north and south coasts. Dating from around the second and third centuries BC, it is mentioned in Cornish legends as one of the seats of the Duke of Cornwall and it is still one of the most impressive and important archaeological sites in Cornwall.
    • Padstow is within easy reach and is well known as a historic fishing port and home to top class restaurants. Everyday amenities can also be found there, such as a supermarket and a range of shops as well as plenty of watersports and leisure activities, including cycle hire for the Camel Trail.
    • Newquay, known for its surfing culture, is also conveniently close and being a major holiday resort has much to offer, not only for shopping and everyday requirements, but also for spectacular days on the coast, with plenty of beautiful beaches to choose from. Golfers can play on the clifftop course and keen sea anglers can take day long excursions on fishing boats from the harbour.
    • A few minutes' drive in either direction from Oakwood House will bring you to the A39 and the A30, yet when in the house or the grounds there is nothing to intrude on the sounds of the countryside and it seems a world apart.
