A charming 4/5 bedroom character Cornish cottage thought to date from the 1700s yet beautifully updated and extended. Rural yet convenient location. Delightful gardens with ornamental ponds and endless swimming pool. Large double garage.
Believed to date from the 1700s, this charming character Cornish cottage has been lovingly updated, restored and extended to created a delightful period home suitable for modern family life. Set back from the lane the property has ample driveway parking and a purpose built double garage with spacious pitched roof and electric door. There's a useful level, gated area of hard standing which would be ideal for a boat or caravan etc. A wooden gate with impressive granite gateposts opens to a pretty front garden which has been planted to bloom through the seasons being particularly picturesque in spring. A feature pond with stone waterfall adds to the scene and the stone fronted cottage is absolutely stunning with its granite lintels and quoins and practical porch. The Stone front has been very well restored and the extension (built around 2015) matched in carefully to complete the picture postcard frontage. Stepping into the porch there is a stylish retro tiled floor and oak stable door to the living room which is really the whole ground floor of the original cottage. The living room has an impressive granite fire place with multi fuel stove and there are UPVC double glazed sash style windows. The ceiling is beamed with carved corbel supports at each end of the beams. There is a fun and unusual light well where former stairs were removed and replaced by a toughened glass floor to the landing above. This has a sun pipe style light tube above allowing natural light into the property. The kitchen / dining room is a large L shaped space and the kitchen is fitted with a high quality range of farmhouse style oak fronted units with polished granite work surfaces and a butler style sink. Also on the ground floor there is a useful study which has been used for working from home and has also been used as bedroom five in the past having an adjacent cloakroom / WC. The Double glazed conservatory to the rear is very large and adds valuable square footage to the property and provides a gorgeous garden room. Heading up the oak stair case there are four further generous bedrooms with the master having an en-suite wet room and each first floor bedroom has a built-in wardrobe. The family bathroom has a large bath and a separate shower enclosure. Outside, to the side of the cottage is a block built store, a garden shed and a greenhouse with productive grape vine. To the other side is a spacious patio with built-in endless swimming pool which has jets producing a current that you can swim against for exercise. There is a barbeque deck which is a great place to enjoy the stunning rear garden with its exciting planting and impressive pond which is a haven for wildlife.
