SUMMARY: Coming to the market for the first time in over 25 years this is an amazing opportunity for buyers to secure what could be their dream family home!
Originally built in the mid 1930’s the property is a fine period detached home on an absolutely stunning plot, incorporating exquisite gardens and grounds. There are character features throughout, noticed from the moment you walk through the original feature front door. Well maintained during the current owner’s tenure the property has well balanced modern family accommodation, but also has almost endless further potential to extend, improve, reconfigure to whatever a buyer could desire (subject the relevant consents).
Principally consisting of natural oak front door with ornate stained-glass pane and working pull chime doorbell into the main hallway; a fairly spacious area that is full of natural light. Stairs rise to the first floor and access is given throughout the ground floor.
On the front aspect there is the main formal living room, with living flame feature LPG gas fire. What immediately strikes you is how the room is flooded with natural light owning to large dual aspect windows including a pretty bow bay window. This wonderful amount of natural lights is echoed throughout much of the property as many of the rooms share the large windows and dual aspects.
The kitchen is positioned to the back, it is more a suite of areas incorporating kitchen/diner and family room all rolled into one. Fitted with a quality, modern range of cream shaker units and ample space for both living and dining furniture, there is also rear access and double timber doors through to a separate tertiary reception space, offering great flexibility whether it be as formal dining room, second living room, quiet relaxation space of lively playroom; the choice is yours! It’s blessed with stunning views over the extensive gardens from a large full height box bay window.
Usefully on the ground floor there is a small utility area with space and plumbing for white goods which in turn leads to a large wet room style shower suite.
On the first floor there are three decent size bedrooms and the main formal bathroom which has an opulent roll top bath. All of the rear facing windows benefit from the beautiful garden views, and there is a spacious loft accessed via hatch on the landing.
Throughout the property there is UPVC double glazing and oil-fired central heating.
Externally the property has a double driveway and potential to create further parking if required. There is side access and a substantial size garage with adjoining rear workshop, below the workshop there is further dry storage.
The biggest and best feature of the property is saved until last…The gardens! Wow, they are incredible. Exceptionally large, particularly when compared to more modern homes. Lush, mature, and nicely landscaped. Facing West, they enjoy sunshine throughout the day and early evening before sunset. Off from the back of the property there is a raised “suntrap” patio and deck which is ideal for family BBQ’s. Steps lead down to the main lawned garden which is easily big enough for children to safely play or have a “kick about”. Nice and private owning to the lush variety of mature border trees, hedges, and general shrubbery. The magic begins two thirds down the garden where Perranporth river cuts the garden in two. Do not be fooled though, this is more like a gentle stream than an actual river and just a wonderful, unusual, relaxing feature. Overlooking the stream is a small summer house and there is a fixed bridge providing access to the far side of the garden where a secondary area is filled with fruit trees of many types from Apple to Banana.
In truth we could go on for days trying to describe everything this home has to offer and still not do it justice. If there has ever been a property we’ve recommending viewing, this is it! Book early to avoid disappointment!
WHAT WE LOVE: What can we say…this has it all: Location, potential, character, family size accommodation. We love all of it, but oh my…those gardens are just the best!
