Carthew Alms Cottage is a deceptively spacious traditional cottage set within beautifully tended gardens and grounds approaching half an acre with a stream boundary. With versatile accommodation and a wealth of character features such as vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and lintels and painted exposed stonework, this delightful cottage suits equally as a family residence or as a second/holiday home. Sunworshippers will love the south-facing terraces around the solar heated swimming pool and there is a triple garage with plenty of driveway parking.

Approaching Carthew Alms Cottage from the private parking area, a pretty rose arch in the picket fence leads through the ornate iron gate. The paved pathway rises through the terraced lawns to the glazed porchway with stable door entrance. The porch leads in to the country-style kitchen with a good range of custom hand-built base and wall units and an attractive antique terracotta tiled floor. The two-oven Rayburn range cooker is complemented by integrated appliances and the views across the gardens to the countryside beyond are quite beautiful. The kitchen leads through to the dining room - a well-proportioned space with a dual-aspect, including glazed French doors to the sun terrace, and a feature fireplace with slate hearth. The inner hallway opens through to the delightful snug. The vaulted ceiling, exposed woodwork and inglenook fireplace with log-burner make this as cosy a room as you could wish for on a cool evening. Next door, the main sitting room is well-proportioned with wood flooring and a burner-style feature gas fire. Natural light floods through the two floor to ceiling windows facing south over the pool terrace. The first two of four bedrooms are in this part of the house, the largest has a vaulted ceiling, built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom. As the property extends to the rear, you will find the utility room with base unit, sink and plumbing for a washing machine. Beyond are a further shower room and the remaining two bedrooms, both of generous proportions and with built-in wardrobes. The furthest room has a very pleasant dual aspect, including a floor to ceiling window overlooking the pool area. The hallway servicing these two rooms has French doors opening to the sun terrace.

Outside, the gardens are predominantly South facing and laid to lawn with a high degree of privacy. The swimming pool, measuring approximately 8.53m x 4.26m, is heated with solar energy and is surrounded by a paved patio with mature shrub planting and pretty flowering climbers. Beyond the lawns, a mature wooded area leads down to the stream boundary. At the front of the house, pergolas cover the patio verandah, a tranquil spot to relax and enjoy the countryside views to the east of the property.

Services to the property include mains water, electricity, gas and sewerage.

Little Petherick is a charming hamlet in the wooded valley of Little Petherick Creek, a tidal inlet of the Camel Estuary, on the North Coast of Cornwall. Directly on the Saints Way and within easy reach of the Camel Trail, it is a dream location for walkers and cyclists alike. The historic and picturesque fishing town of Padstow is conveniently situated within three miles and offers an extensive range of cafes, public houses and restaurants, none more so than Paul Ainsworth's Michelin starred No.6 and of course Rick Stein's esteemed Seafood restaurant. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are several sandy beaches within 2 to 4 miles as well as the championship golf course at Trevose. Padstow also has a supermarket and excellent Primary School. For more extensive shopping facilities, the thriving market town of Wadebridge, with a fine selection of shops and amenities including a sports centre, cinema, a primary and secondary school and a selection of supermarkets, is just 5 miles away. The nearest mainline station is Bodmin Parkway, which is approximately 18 miles distant, and Newquay Airport is an easy 12 miles away.
