WOODLANDS is a fine double-fronted, late-Victorian house privately situated well off the road in the rural hamlet of Trethowel. It is within walking distance of St Austell town with its excellent transport links. The house has been sympathetically and carefully restored in recent years and contains many period features including original cornicing, tessellated floors, panelled doors, cast iron radiators, fireplaces, deep skirting boards, stained glass and wooden floors.
The house sits in the middle of beautifully landscaped woodland gardens of about an acre (stm) with stunning views across a wooded valley. The well-stocked gardens - with magnificent camellias, rhododendrons, specimen trees, etc - are on several levels with more formal areas of lawn, granite walls, stone terraces and a delightful walled courtyard - perfect for al fresco dining. There are two greenhouses and raised beds forming an easy-to-maintain kitchen garden. Also useful granite and brick outbuildings with store rooms and workshop.
The comfortable and generous living space is extremely versatile and is accessed either through the front door or directly into the kitchen or inner lobby - ideal for wet wellies, wet dogs and wet children!
Stone steps lead up to the front door which opens onto a lobby with glazed double doors to the hallway. A turning staircase leads to the first floor. Both the lobby and the hall retain their original tessellated tile flooring. Panelled doors lead to the dining room (with large bay window, wooden floor and period fireplace) and the sitting room (with large bay window, oak floor and stunning period tiled fireplace with multi-fuel stove). Double doors with beautiful stained glass panels open into the library with extensive shelving and storage, period working fireplace and sash window overlooking the walled courtyard. There is an inner hallway with understairs storage cupboard and door to the garden. Also a utility room with WC and washbasin. The painted panelled breakfast room/snug has a cream AGA, butler‘s sink and Victorian clothes airer. Beyond the breakfast room is a light and airy garden room with two sets of double doors opening onto the garden.
Upstairs the large landing gives access to four large double bedrooms - one with en-suite shower room with WC and washbasin. One bedroom is currently being used as a study. There is a luxury porcelain-tiled family bathroom with double shower, bath and twin period washbasins. There is also a separate WC with washbasin.
A hatchway with integral ladder gives access to the huge loft space which is fully insulated and boarded. The loft could easily be developed to provide extensive extra accommodation.
WOODLANDS is approached through tall double gates from a long driveway leading from the road. There is a gravelled and cobbled parking area for several cars, a large car-port and a three-car garage/workshop with stairs leading to a large studio. The garage is centrally heated and has its own WC and washbasin. There is excellent development potential to convert the garage and studio to provide more accommodation for the house - or as a self-contained unit - perhaps a granny/au pair annexe or a holiday let. This would be a simple and relatively-inexpensive undertaking.
There is also a potential building plot in the lower part of the garden - subject to planning.
Mains electricity, mains water, private drainage, oil-fired central heating.
WOODLANDS is the perfect family home. It enjoys the benefit of seclusion coupled with easy access to main transport links - St Austell station 1.5 miles, Newquay Airport 14 miles. There are plenty of well-regarded schools, Cornwall College and Falmouth University. The county town of Truro is 15 miles away and the nearest beach 3.5 miles. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are within a short drive.
