Coomberry House is an elegant property having a very private setting behind high walls adjoining Chapel Lane. Despite this setting of great privacy, the business thoroughfare of Fore Street is a moment's walk at the top of Chapel Lane. The property, believed to have been constructed in the early 1800s originally forming a large detached property with St Antony adjoining, of its own individual style and now a separate home. Apart from a short area of shared footpath, the properties are private from each other. Although no trace appears in its design, historically Coomberry prior to 1850 had a school room and from 1850 to 1920 there was a Dame School at St Antony. Typical of its likely Georgian period, the property has large windows with the drawing room and dining room facing south, meaning that the house is relatively light compared with later periods.

Being the heart of Cornwall, Bodmin has capitalised from its strategic location at the junction of the A30 and A38 trunk roads and combined, with nearby Bodmin Parkway railway station on the mainline between Paddington and Penzance, means quick access can be found to other parts of the county and north and south coasts. About twenty minutes drive only is Cornwall Newquay Airport with its national and international connections. The town stands between the River Fowey valley and Lanhydrock House to the south and the River Camel valley and Camel Trail just to the north and there are continuously expanding facilities within the town itself.

This is accessed from the front porch with its double doors and slate floor. This opens into the elegant and spacious drawing room, with high ceiling, dual aspect windows, ornate mouldings and pelmets, and a most attractive old marble fireplace with inset wood-burning stove and slate hearth. A door leads to the second reception room/office.

The L-shaped kitchen-family room is of a good size and currently provides the convivial heart of the house. It comprises a dining room, casual sitting area and kitchen with a range of floor and wall units, a sink unit, facilities for a dishwasher and a large, walk-in larder off to one side. A door from the inner hall leads to a shower room and w.c.

Adjoining the other side of the kitchen is a large utility room with further cabinets, a sink unit, facilities for cooker, refrigerator, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. A glazed door leads to the rear steps giving convenient access to the garden and parking area.

On the first floor there are landings on two levels, a built in airing cupboard with hot water storage cylinder and immersion heater. The family bathroom has a panelled bath, w.c., wash basin and full height wall tiles. The first bedroom on the right is accessed through a dressing room with vanity basin. This leads through to the large double bedroom with triple aspect windows. The further three double bedrooms are to the front and facing south.

The extensive gardens are accessed from Chapel Lane through a quaint wooden door in the high Cornish wall, which surrounds the front garden, giving it great seclusion and privacy. A short footpath leads through a wicket gate onto the sunny front terrace and footpath, all in random, slate paving. All rooms enjoy lovely views of the extensive, mature gardens, which border the house on three sides. Paths meander through neat lawns, extensive flower beds, shrubs, ground cover and a feature, timber summer house.

The path continues to the rear entrance door then behind the house onto a large paved court with small timber outbuilding, a basement store of limited head room and another full height store room. The path then continues down to the rear vehicular accesses which come from two directions, one from Dennison Road and the second off the lower end of Chapel Lane. There is a double garage in two parts, the first measuring 16' deep by about 11'10" maximum width then opening onto the second garage about 16' by 15' maximum width. There are two up and over garage doors one of them electrically and remotely operated.
