LOCATION: Quintrell Downs is one of Newquay's closest villages just a few miles out from Newquay itself. As Newquay grows and expands as does the popularity of Quintrell Downs which has boomed within the last decade or so. A favourite with the locals and now a great place for all to buy, invest and settle. A unique feature of Quintrell Downs is its compass formation with the four main arterial roads in and out on the north, south, east, and west peripherals all exited from the central village roundabout.
Quintrell Downs offers excellent daily amenities with a village store/post office, a beautiful park/recreational ground and three popular village pubs/restaurants. In addition to this there is a daily bus service, branch line train service and a popular preschool.
Its large neighbour Newquay can be reached within a short car journey or a long walk. Newquay’s popularity in recent years has also boomed and it is now considered one of the crowning jewels of Cornwall. Famed for its sandy coastline and surfing beaches which stretches across Newquay Bay with a different beach literally for every day of the week. The town and surrounding villages benefit from a thriving tourism economy with a great range of independent shops, trendy bars, and fine dining restaurants for all the family to enjoy.
Owning a home in Cornwall and indeed Newquay is a dream for many and a pleasure for those that make it a reality.
SUMMARY: West Road has long been considered by many as the premier address within Qunitrell Downs, lined primarily with fine executive style detached homes on large plots. None more so than No.26, which in our opinion is the finest of them all, not only on West Road, but perhaps in all of Qunitrell Downs. Sited on an unspoilt, private plot that extends to approximately one third of an acre.
This gorgeous period home dates back to the 1930's, thought to have been originally designed and built for the locally renowned Butterworth family. The proportions are wonderful, particularly when compared to more modern homes. Offering well balanced family size accommodation, that has been meticulously maintained by the current owners throughout their decades of ownership. For sale for the first time in over nearly 30 years, this is a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase what is sure to be a "forever home" for a very lucky new buyer.
Approaching the property from West Road, the full scale is beautifully understated, thanks in part to the mature greenery that shields the frontage. A gated entrance leads into to a long sweeping driveway which continues to the rear where there is a large parking area with turning point and double garage.
At the front the property is set back with a good size front lawned garden and a secondary entrance point. Interestingly this second entrance point offers vehicular access and also great potential to create a second driveway to perhaps an additional rear garden plot. There is certainly enough room, and this is an option many of the neighbouring properties have already completed. As such, subject to the normal consents this incredible property may also offer development potential.
A smart entrance leads into a useful porch that (in turn via pretty stained glass inner door) guides you into a very grand entrance hall, a very fitting first impression and just a hint of what is yet to come. A beautiful galleried staircase rises to the first floor and doors filter off to the ground floor accommodation, this includes two principal receptions rooms, a family kitchen/breakfast room, a large utility room and useful ground floor WC. The first of the reception rooms is the living room, like many of the rooms throughout the property it is flooded with natural light from multi aspect windows. At over 21ft it offers enough room for even the largest of family size furniture, but also feels cosy all at the same time thanks to the focal point living flame fireplace. The adjoining sperate dining room is the perfect entertaining space; we can just imagine hosting brilliant dinner party's or a perfect Christmas Day for all the family. Pretty French style double doors look out to the front. The kitchen/breakfast room has a fully fitted range of modern cream shaker style units with integrated double oven, hob and extractor, there is room in the centre for a small dining table. Usefully there is a large pantry and there is a stunning original feature period range oven. From here there is access to the rear utility that also has a back door. Again fitted with a good range of kitchen units with plentiful space and plumbing for a variety of white goods.
The first floor landing is two fold: access point for the upstairs accommodation and useful study area with spacious recess for home office suite, making this a highly flexible space and perhaps perfect for home working. There are four good size double bedrooms, one of which has fitted wardrobes. Included within these four bedrooms is the master that also benefits from its own concealed en-suite shower room. The main family bathroom is an opulent size with a five piece tiled suite to include bath, separate shower cubicle, wash basin, WC and bidet.
The property is beautifully presented throughout in modern order, but also a blank canvass should buyers wish to stamp their own mark. Additional modern features include quality hardwood double glazed windows and oil fired central heating throughout.
The gardens to the rear are a true highlight of the home and take up the majority of the third of an acre plot. Large, level, mature and very sunny thanks to their size. Specific areas have been created to enjoy the sun, such as a sheltered patio and a lovely summerhouse. For the most part the gardens are laid to lawn, but there is a well stocked variety of plants, trees and shrubbery to satisfy any green fingered garden enthusiasts, yet are also easy enough to maintain for any busy family.
To the rear of the property there is an outside WC and storage as well as the parking and double garage. At 22ft the double garage is a great space. This internal size and the twin doors means two cars can be housed comfortably if desired.
