This detached period home is a true 'Hidden gem', tucked away in a private, partly walled garden of approximately half an acre yet within a short walk of the town centre. Beautifully restored, including replacement of the windows with bespoke timber double glazed units throughout the main building with the final three windows being fitted in the coming weeks. The property offers lovely sized family accommodation and could lend itself to Bed and Breakfast use with bedroom four and its en-suite being separate from the main accommodation.
The property is approached on the ground floor through the spacious entrance hall which has a semi-circular window to one side and a large glazed lantern above, wide foot mat well, ceramic flooring and doors leading to the utility room and also through to the kitchen. The kitchen has a range of fitted floor and wall cabinets, beamed ceilings and granite worktops which incorporate a one and a half bowl sink and an induction hob with extractor hood over. There is a built in electric oven and a separate combination oven/microwave. The floor is finished in ceramic tiles and a door leads to a large walk-in larder with extensive shelving. A door with glazed side panel opens to the south onto the front terrace and garden beyond and a spiral staircase then leads to the fourth bedroom. This first floor area has a small landing with full height window overlooking the rear garden and part decorative glazed door leading to the double bedroom with a large walk-in wardrobe and a further door opening onto the en-suite shower room that has been refitted with a double shower cubicle, vanity sink with built in storage, w.c., heated towel rail and Velux window.
Returning to the ground floor a further door opens from the kitchen through to the fine large dining room with solid oak flooring, a door opening onto the front terrace and a period fireplace with wood surround and slate hearth. An arch leads into the inner hall where there is a turned staircase to the first floor with storage under. Here a door leads to the dining room and a further door leads through to the drawing room. The utility room has a ceramic floor, further door to entrance hall, a Belfast sink and a built-in cupboard housing a gas fired central heating boiler. Also fitted wall cabinets, fitted floor cabinet and a part glazed door with obscure glass leading into the cloakroom with low level w.c. and wash hand basin.
The large drawing room has a fireplace with polished marble hearth and back and a decorative wood surround and triple aspect windows onto the side and front garden. There is solid oak flooring and large French doors with glazing above opening onto the conservatory with its slate floor, double glazed windows and roof and fitted ceiling blinds. French doors onto the front terrace and this beautiful room enjoys attractive outlooks onto the partly walled side garden.
The landing has a large roof hatch with sliding roof ladder opening into the roof void which has been partly floored. The family bathroom is of good size having a suite comprising a steel bath with corner taps, pedestal wash hand basin and low level w.c. and a separate and fully tiled deep shower cubicle. There is attractive half height wall tiling with dado mouldings, a vertical towel rail/radiator and lattice fronted double doors opening into the airing cupboard enclosing the hot water storage cylinder. Bedroom one to the front is a double bedroom with a range of fitted wardrobes and hat cupboards over with central mirror and an old cast iron recessed fireplace (not in use). There are fine views over the garden and town beyond towards Bodmin Beacon, similar views are enjoyed from bedroom two, the second front double bedroom. Bedroom three is located to the rear and is also a double bedroom with views over the side garden and the study has fitted shelving.
The property is approached from the hillside over a cobbled effect parking area and then with high walls and gates giving a private access onto the front courtyard. The garage measures approximately 16' x 8'6" with electronically operated up and over door and having an opening to the rear into the substantial workshop about 19'6" x 9'3". The courtyard has high screen and capped stone walls to one side with a further door into the workshop and a further slate paved area and high iron gate and arch leading into the upper garden. On the workshop wall grow Chaenomelas, a yellow rose and honeysuckle and the gravelled garden to the other side has small trees and ferns. A wisteria arch leads down to the front garden which is mainly laid to lawn and has many mature shrubs including Choisya, Hibiscus and Abelia and many herbaceous plants. A slate path leads across the front of the house to a patio area in front of the conservatory doors. A pear tree grows along the front of the house and is believed to be over 100 years old. An arch leads through to the lower pond garden where larger plants such as a hardy banana, cardoon, azaleas and hydrangeas can be found. At the end of this garden is a good sized garden store. Go through a further wisteria arch to the main lawn which is dominated by the high stone wall and a clipped yew hedge. Here there are various clematis, a red climbing rose and many herbaceous plants and shrubs. An arch in the wall leads up to the top garden where there are five apple trees, cherry, blueberry bush and raspberry canes. There is also a vegetable bed, greenhouse and garden shed. The garden then continues along the back of the house where there are several other fruit trees and bushes and the path leads past the garage and workshop to double gates out to the front parking area.
The property is located in the centre of Bodmin, in a south facing private garden. Bodmin has an excellent range of facilities including most of the major supermarkets, public houses, restaurants, Better leisure centre and several infant and primary schools as well as Bodmin Community College and Callywith College. The town is conveniently located in the middle of the county, roughly equi-distant to both the North and South coasts and is located off the main A30 trunk road giving easy access to Exeter and the M5 beyond. Bodmin Parkway mainline railway station is approximately three miles away and serves the Penzance to London Paddington route and Newquay Airport is about a 20 minute drive.
From Dennison Road in the centre of the town head east towards St Petrocs church and just after the car park on the left, next the Westberry Hotel turn left up Rhind Street. Continue up the hill nearly to the top and you will see the entrance to Bracken Close on your right, the parking and garage to the property will be seen opposite on the left hand side.
