Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This substantial and charming detached country residence known as Broadwood is believed to date back in part to the 16th Century. Our clients have resided in the property for about 9 years and have enjoyed their time having it as their main home. Internally, the accommodation includes an entrance porch with hallway which opens into the large farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of solid wood units and work surfaces. Included in the sale there is the oil fired heritage range oven which is both a cooking appliance and also fires the domestic hot water and central heating system. Also included in the sale there is a dishwasher. The kitchen has a slate floor and modern downlighters and opens into the breakfast area which has room for a small table, enjoying an outlook over the garden. The formal dining room is dominated by the feature stone and granite fireplace with inset a wood burning stove. Like many of the rooms the dining room has a beamed ceiling and window seat. From here curved steps descend down to the main sitting room which is some 27' (8.2m) in length. This triple aspect room is part of the oldest section of the building which is clearly visible by the granite mullion windows on the side elevation and the superb granite fireplace, which again is the main focal point of the room. Concluding the ground floor is a utility room and the shower room/WC.

The wide stairs ascend to the first floor where all five bedrooms and the bathroom will be found. All of the bedrooms bar bedroom five have built in furniture of some description, including bedroom four which has two double wardrobes and fitted draws and is the lightest of the bedrooms enjoying a view over the rear garden. The master bedroom suite also has a collection of fitted wardrobes and is accessed through the feature galleried landing area. The bedroom also has exposed A-frame beams. The family bathroom WC is equipped with a modern three piece matching suite with an electric shower over the panelled bath. Much of the first floor, like the ground floor, has exposed beams, wall light points, deep sills, wood panels and wooden lintels. The route through from the original landing to the galleried landing is via a few wide steps and a delightful arched door. To add to modern comforts the windows are UPVC double glazed and as previously mentioned warmth is generated by oil fired central heating from the heritage oven in the kitchen.

Externally, at the front of the property there is a small but well stocked pretty garden which is able to receive the sun during the morning. The rear garden enjoys a south westwardly aspect and is slightly raised, predominately lawned, with a feature stone wall with raised beds and shrubs, bushes and perennials. This well enclosed area is ideal for those with pets or children to consider. A few meters away accessed via the lane, which our clients enjoy ownership of is a large plot which includes an enclosed driveway providing off road parking for a number of vehicles. Adjacent to the driveway the plot enjoys a pleasant aspect overlooking the surrounding farmland. Our clients have developed a vegetable area and there are a number of fruit trees including many soft fruits such as raspberry, blueberry and shrubs such as rhododendrons, buddleias and a damson tree. Occupying this large plot is an attached two bay double garage with open and over doors, power and light connected. There is also a small garden shed and a water connection to this area. This extra piece of ground really identifies Broadwood as a lifestyle opportunity for those wanting to grow produce in a beautiful environment not far from Bodmin Moor.
