Though having considerable privacy in the south facing gardens and completely hidden from view, nevertheless the property is a fine townhouse being at the top of Rhind Street and with the town centre being a short walk down the hill. The town of Bodmin has a good central location in the county being at the junction of the A30 and A38 trunk roads and has beautiful surroundings with the Camel Valley, River Camel and the Camel Trail just to the north and interconnecting into the town. To the south is the fine Fowey river valley and nearby Lanhydrock House and Golf Course. The town offers an ever expanding range of good facilities including fine educational facilities at Bodmin College and has been sought after by many due to its convenience within about twenty minutes drive of both the north and south coasts as a good centre to live in.
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 court. Alongside this is the garage measuring 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" and then extending into a further storage area which interconnects with the garage. The court 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. A further iron gate then leads onto the main front garden. The gardens are described in one of the guides as having "peaceful luxuriance" and to the front is a formal sun dial garden and this extends into various other parts through a myriad of old high stone walls, iron gates and arches and curving yew hedges. The higher garden is an informal orchard with ancient cider apple trees and more recently planted dessert varieties, some trained into espaliers. There is also a greenhouse measuring 19'3" x 8'9" with water supply and electricity laid on and a fruit garden area with netted enclosure. To the west of the house is a long lawn with serpentine deep borders along an original 10' stone wall and the curving yew hedge divides this lawn from the hidden sunken garden entered via a wisteria arch and with a small pond. Tucked away to one side is an old garden store.
