This detached character cottage is located on the rural outskirts of Cardinham with lovely sized gardens both adjoining the cottage and across the lane and has no near neighbours. The cottage has belonged to the same family for over forty five years and has been extended twice in this time.

April Cottage has a pretty valley setting about two thirds of a mile only through a country lane from the village of Cardinham. Cardinham offers a convenient location within a little over five minutes' drive from either the A38 trunk road to the south or the A30 trunk road to the north. This gives quick and easy access to the heart of Bodmin (about ten minutes) and after joining the A30, the city of Exeter at its junction with the M5 motorway is less than an hour's drive.

About ten minutes' drive will be found Bodmin Parkway Mainline Railway Station for the link from Penzance to Paddington.

The property is provided with oil fired central heating to the ground floor only and there is also partial double glazing.

A gate and a few wide steps lead down from the lane to the front of the property where a door opens to the living room and a further door opens to the kitchen. This is a double aspect room which enjoys views over the garden and has fitted floor and wall cabinets and worktops incorporating a sink unit. There is plumbing and space for a dishwasher and space for an electric oven. A door opens to a lobby where there is a built in double airing cupboard and doors to both the utility room and family bathroom opposite.

An opening from the kitchen leads to the living room which is in the original part of the cottage and retains much period charm. There is a fireplace at one end with an inset wood burner and two single paned windows which overlook the garden. At the other end of the room there are built in cupboard, one housing the hot water storage cylinder and there is an oil fired Rayburn which heats the radiators on the ground floor. Off the living room is a dining room which looks across the fields on the lower side of the property and has a few steps leading up to bedrooms two and three.

A staircase in the living room leads to the first floor where there are two further bedrooms and a study all overlooking the lovely garden. Bedroom one has a built in double wardrobe to one side of the chimney breast.

Outside to the front of the property there is a patio seating area which enjoys views towards surrounding woodland and the lovely mature garden extends in front. There is a lawn, mature flower beds with brick edging, a large vegetable plot and mature hedges and shrubs. At the far end there is an old stone store and the pump for the private water supply. A footpath then leads down the side of the property to the rear where there is a further enclosed garden area which has a greenhouse and outside w.c.

Across the lane there is a garage with lean to stores on either side and there is a gate which leads up to another area of garden. This is sloping but lovely views across the fields to the river and woodland beyond can be enjoyed and this area and it has been beautifully planted over the years. There is also a garden shed in this area of garden.
From the crossroads in the centre of Cardinham with the primary school on your left take the opposite junction and head towards the Church. Turn left immediately opposite the church and follow this lane until you drop down and go over a bridge. Follow the road around to the left and after a short distance take the left hand turning. April Cottage will be found a short distance down this lane on your left hand side.
