MAGICAL RETREAT WITH A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN!

This stunning and individual detached character cottage is set in a quiet rural location on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Complete privacy, a private gated entrance, lots of parking, large gardens and a fabulous studio/stone outbuilding, make this an artist's dream!

This gorgeous home is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Bradford. Surrounded by moorland this is a wonderfully sheltered position in the valley. Its boundary is the River De Lank (a tributary of the River Camel) and it overlooks "Bradford Bridge". The property has been beautifully maintained and presented by the current owners and offers a clever combination of individual modern features together with original character. The perfect blend of old and new.

The living space is ideal for entertaining with the attractive sun room/dining room, opening out to the lush gardens and enjoying a sunny aspect. The gardens are truly fabulous and the spacious studio outbuilding would lend itself to conversion to a self-contained annex (subject to the necessary planning consents of course!)

Step into the pitched roof entrance porch where built-in shoe storage lies straight ahead. There are quarry tiles underfoot and a pretty picture window frames a lovely view of the garden. The electric meter box is tucked to one side and then you step up into the sitting room.

This generous room is separated into two areas by a central, open spindle staircase which winds its way to the first floor. There is a wood-burning stove at each end of this lovely characterful room with the inglenook on the right having the original cloam oven. Two windows with deep cills look over the front of the property and there is built-in shelving and a glazed door which leads into the inner hallway.

A terracotta ceramic tiled floor runs seamlessly throughout the rest of the living space which is arranged over different levels. The inner hall is lovely and light with three large upvc double glazed windows to the rear with a direct view across open farmland. A built-in cupboard provides storage and to the right, a few curved steps lead down to the kitchen/breakfast room.

This is another bright, triple aspect room with a vaulted ceiling. Having a relaxed and unfitted country feel, there is a range of painted wood-fronted base units with laminate worktops and an inset single drainer stainless steel sink, from where you can wash the dishes whilst taking in the lovely outlook over the front gardens.

An oil fired Rayburn takes centre stage and has two separate controls, one for the central heating and the other for the oven. A large freestanding larder cupboard fits neatly along one wall and a further built-in storage cupboard provides even more useful space. There is plenty of room to dine and a door leads out to the front.

Back to the inner hall and continue up a couple of steps to another hallway where you will find a stylish shower room. The fittings include a large shower cubicle with a curved screen and thermostatic shower, close coupled WC and a pedestal wash basin. The cool pastel colours of the tiled walls and pale creamy tiled floor lend a peaceful ambience and a window to the front lets in lots of light. Perfect!

Next is the ground floor bedroom which is a single. At the front of the house, there are beams to the ceiling and tiles underfoot.

Continue up to the spacious sun/dining room. Sliding patio doors take you out to the patio and side garden. A gas-fired stove sits neatly on the right making this a useable and cosy space all year round. A double glazed perspex roof lies overhead and there are four large double glazed windows overlooking the beautiful gardens.

From the sitting room, wind your way to the first floor landing. Bright and airy, the vaulted ceiling and exposed rafters give a real feeling of space.

To the right is bedroom two which has a double glazed window with deep window cill to the front and two Velux windows to the rear. There is also a useful built-in wardrobe.

Next is the family bathroom which is another stylish room. There is a charming freestanding bath, part tiled walls, WC and wash basin. A window to the front overlooks the pretty gardens and a built-in airing cupboard provides excellent storage space.

The master bedroom is super with clothes hanging space under the eaves, cleverly concealed by curtains. The combination of three upvc double glazed windows and three Velux windows allow the light to flood in and a built-in headboard makes an attractive feature. How lovely!

The outside of this property is just fabulous and the gardens are extensive and well stocked with a huge variety of plants and flowers, mature shrubs and trees. Separated into different areas to enjoy different aspects, there are also two summerhouses. One of these enjoys a beautiful view across the Ford and surrounding Moorland.

A range of outbuildings include two stone sheds used for storage, a garage, carport and let's not forget the stone building which is currently utilised as an art studio. This has power and light, television, telephone and broadband connected. The separate kitchen area to one side and WC mean this building has great potential to convert into additional living accommodation or home office, subject to planning consents.

The Vendor Thinks:The property has provided us with a genuine country lifestyle, ideal for people and any pets. We have found it ideally situated for moorland walking, fishing, cycling etc. yet it is within striking distance of the Cornish surfing beaches and the towns of Wadebridge, Bodmin and Launceston. Although it is actually on Bodmin Moor, it seems to have its own microclimate that has enabled us to grow anything we want over the 18 years we have lived here, creating a pleasant atmosphere where we can always find a comfortable place to sit, with a different aspect, whatever the weather.

My Place Thinks: This property is wonderful! The location is dreamy, tucked away like a mini oasis in this magical moorland spot. The feeling of privacy and seclusion is absolutely lovely and yet being only one and a half miles from the A30 makes this a perfect choice as a permanent or second home! What do you think?
