Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This property has a truly delightful setting set alongside a lane leading down to Hoopers Bridge and the sheltered rural countryside surrounding. From here lanes in various directions from the property lead through to the village of Nanstallon with its village primary school and access onto the river Camel and Camel Trail. Despite its quiet setting the property is within a short drive (about five minutes only) from the extensive facilities offered in the larger town of Bodmin. The location is also ideal for quick access to Cornwall Newquay Airport (about twenty minutes drive only) and via the A30 to Truro to the west in about half an hour and Exeter to the east in about an hour. A mainline railway station is also within about ten minutes drive at Bodmin Parkway. The location is considered ideal in the heart of the county being about equi distant from both the north and south coasts.

Newton offers a comprehensive package for those seeking a classic period farmhouse which has been beautifully restored and sympathetically re-designed very recently so that in addition to the two reception rooms, a high quality conservatory has been constructed. There is also a large kitchen and breakfast room with cabinets and fittings in great style and including a Heritage oil fired Range cooker.

Most of the front windows have been replaced with high quality sash windows which are double glazed and in UPVC.

Our land plan indicates the layout of the ground which extends to about 1.75 acres. This has been provided with a system of horse walking lanes with a paddock and the large and high quality recently constructed ménage. There is a separate field gate from the lane and just above this is a block of twin garages each measuring 18' x 9'6" with drive to the front then with the footpaths leading through the beautiful gardens and up to the house itself.

There is a further courtyard access into the rear yard which has a substantial stone built single storey building which has recently been re-roofed in slate to a high standard and has planning consent for conversion into a holiday cottage. Alongside this building is a small block of three stables and to the left of these a gate opens onto the paddock.

Returning to the gardens these are most attractive and mature with neat gravelled paths, a pergola with a mature wisteria, mature lawns and flower borders.

Within the garden is the studio unit built many years ago and clad in corrugated galvanised iron which belies the beautiful and recently re-fitted internal accommodation. This now has UPVC double glazed windows, an open plan reception room and kitchen area with French doors onto the garden, a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and w.c. off. This unit is also provided with electric central heating.

Areas of this have already been briefly described but all finishes are most attractive and to a high standard.

The large lounge has a massive open stone fireplace with a brick area and encloses a cast iron wood-burning stove unit with slate hearth. This very light room then opens onto the recently constructed and high quality conservatory with its fine and private outlook over the garden and towards the land.

The dining room has a pleasant outlook to the rear paddocks and has a low stone fireplace with a massive granite lintel. The kitchen and breakfast room has been well restored and adapted recently from two rooms and divided with a massive timber lintel, a most attractive slate floor with large flags, a fine range of oak fronted cabinets with part oak and part granite worktops incorporating a Belfast ceramic sink with pillar tap. There is also a central cabinet unit with curved doors and slide out bread baskets and a matching dresser to the rear of the breakfast room area. Part of the walls are of exposed stone. To the rear of the hall a door leads to the utility room with a part glazed door to the exterior, fitted Belfast sink and further door to a cloakroom with low level w.c. Floors here again are finished in terracotta tiles.

On the first floor there is a most attractive large galleried landing with large hatch to the loft. A glazed small pane door leads into the fourth bedroom/study with double aspect windows. The remaining three bedrooms comprise the principal bedroom, a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room with high quality finishes including ceramic floor tiling, a large shower cubicle with full height wall tiling, low level w.c. and a most attractive window recessed bowl wash hand basin with pillar tap. Bedroom two, a double bedroom located to the rear has one exposed feature stone wall and an attractive outlook over the rear paddock and bedroom three is a large single bedroom with built in wardrobe with folding panelled doors and automatic electric light. The family bathroom is a large room and beautifully appointed with a large bath with ball and claw feet and a central Victorian style mixer tap and shower head. There is also dado panelling, a pedestal wash hand, low level w.c. and a separate shower cubicle with a Victorian style overhead shower head. Both this and the en-suite shower room have flush fitted ceiling spotlights. There is also a built-in airing cupboard with shelving and fitted hot water storage cylinder and immersion heater.
Take the A389 road from the centre of Bodmin heading towards Lanivet. After leaving the outskirts of Bodmin go down the hill past Laveddon Nurseries on the left. Follow the hill to the top and take the turning right to Nanstallon. After a short distance take the first turning left and follow this down the hill towards Hoopers Bridge. Newton will be found on the right hand side.
