    About this property

    • THE PROPERTY

      Cartreff is an attractive Edwardian double fronted villa with a wonderful green-oak framed wing, canted at an angle to take full advantage of the lovely Creekside views, in an elevated position surrounded by its own beautifully designed mature gardens. The interior has been cleverly designed for the original Edwardian wing and the more modern wing to combine effortlessly into one contemporary space. There is a large kitchen dining room with door through to a light and spacious family room, wood burner and doors to the front decking/terrace area with views of the creek. There is a further reception room with large bay window with creekside views and wood burner. From the spacious hall through to the rear of the property is the study, utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there are five double bedrooms and three bathrooms all with built-in cupboards. The three main bedrooms as the front of the property have double height ceilings with mezzanine areas which offer further storage or possibly further accommodation and all three enjoy creekside views. The master bedroom also has a fabulous glass fronted balcony with which to enjoy views of the creek and surrounding countryside. The two doubles at the rear enjoy lovely views over a particularly well landscaped garden.

      Gardens

      The gardens are a particular feature of Cartreff and have been beautifully landscaped to enhance its location with various decking/terrace areas, pebbled pathways and Cornish stone walling. The gardens are well stocked with a focus on sub-tropical planting and all year interest. From the rear of the house there is a garden gate that leads directly into the ancient woodlands with plenty of wild garlic and foraging and will eventually lead you onto the path on down to Flushing on the coast.

      Garage/outbuilding

      There is a timber clad pitched roofed double garage and forecourt for parking for a further two cars and a log store at the rear of the house.
