Super Semi with Ample Parking! Tucked away just on the edge of Bodmin, in a quiet residential setting, is this deceptively spacious and modern family home which has been extended to offer super living accommodation. Occupying a generously sized plot and boasting a fitted kitchen, separate utility, lounge/diner, four bedrooms, ample parking and an integral garage.
Approached via an open low maintenance frontage, the driveway spans the width of the property providing room to park several vehicles and leads to the storm porch where the front door lies straight ahead. The integral garage is neatly positioned just to the right and offers further parking, accessible via a remote controlled up and over door.
Step inside into a large welcoming entrance hall
There is a useful open storage area under the stairs; a versatile space which could equally provide room for a workstation if required. You’ll find the lounge to the left while straight ahead lies the utility room and the staircase, with oak balustrade and chrome spindles, positioned to the right leading you to the first-floor landing.
The lounge, with a lovely big window allowing plenty of natural light to flood the space, has a chimney breast where there’s room for a gas fireplace making this an ideal focal point, and where a wall mounted television can be positioned too. This is a great space for the family to sit and relax, whilst light beams through from the panes in the dining area.
A lovely large arch separates the dining space from the sitting area, where there’s plenty of room for a formal dining table, perfect for those family get togethers. Full height glazed windows allow plenty of natural light in and lovely views of the garden can be enjoyed. There’s French doors to provide access into the garden from here too. A few steps and you’re through to the utility room.
The original kitchen, now used as the utility room, features a range of wall and base units so there’s plenty of handy storage space, with a rolled edge work surface and a circular single stainless sink drainer unit inset with chrome fountain tap over.
There’s space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine, dishwasher and tumble dryer too and the gas fired central heating boiler is also located here. A glazed window to the rear allows views of the rear garden, whilst tiled flooring underfoot makes an easy clean and is great for those muddy days! There is even a cloakroom featuring a modern WC.
An open entrance from the utility room takes you through to the lovely modern kitchen on the right. Well-equipped and fitted with a range of wall and base units, finished in a solid oak panelled design with a one and a half stainless-steel sink drainer unit incorporated into the rolled edge work surface and a chrome fountain tap over.
Further features include a waste disposal unit, space for a range cooker with a stainless-steel splashback and matching chimney style extractor hood over. There is also space and plumbing for an American fridge freezer with further storage cupboards either side as well as above.
There are lovely garden views from a window at the rear, where a glazed door leads into the rear garden, so you’ve not far to go to escape from the heat in the kitchen! A courtesy fire door at the rear of the kitchen provides access into the integral garage, which is very handy, and tiled flooring nicely completes the look.
Up to the first-floor landing where all rooms lead off either side of the central hallway, where there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The master bedroom is a fantastic double which, with the en-suite combined, takes up the entire depth of the property. There is a built-in cupboard and access to the loft area. Windows take in both views of the front of the house and surrounding countryside.
Stepping into the en-suite shower room, also great in size, is a shower cubicle tucked into the right-hand side of the room and a close coupled WC and a pedestal hand wash basin with a chrome mixer tap. A window allows plenty of natural light to shine through while providing complete privacy and there is even space to display a bathroom cabinet. Wall to wall tiling with complimentary floor tiles underfoot complete the look.
Bedroom two is another super double with a view over the front of the house and surrounding countryside. On the opposite side of the landing are bedrooms three, another double, and the fourth bedroom, a generous single, both having views over the rear garden. The family bathroom can be found centrally positioned at the rear of the property.
A generous family bathroom with a panelled bath and shower attachment over, a close coupled WC and a pedestal hand wash basin. To the rear, a frosted glazed window overlooks the garden, whilst decorative tiling adds interest and the vinyl floor is brilliant for easy cleaning!
Step outside from the dining area and the kitchen into the lovely garden
Cornish hedging, fencing and an array of mature shrubbery encloses the boundary of the rear garden, keeping things nice and private, with gated access from the side of the garage.
The garden is generous in size and features a large area of lawn with split level decking areas; perfect for entertaining on those long and hot summer days. Just imagine sitting and relaxing with your favourite tipple to hand, bliss!
A little bit more about the location of Bodmin
Bodmin, with all its amenities, is just a few minutes’ drive away, having recently undergone a huge transformation into a cycle hub and offering many shopping, banking, schooling and recreational facilities.
Perfectly located to access the many renowned sandy beaches and historic coastal towns such as Padstow, Fowey, Charlestown and Port Isaac with the Camel Trail passing through the town and following the route of the old railway into Wadebridge and beyond to Padstow.
To the east of the town is Bodmin Moor designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, popular with cyclists, walkers and nature lovers.
To the outskirts is the railway station providing direct links to London Paddington, the south East and a variety of other destinations. Enviable positioning between the North and South coats of Cornwall and with the A30 right on your doorstep, commuting in and out of the county is a breeze!
Emily‘s Property Notes
What a fabulous sized family home boasting a separate utility room, downstairs cloakroom and en-suite to the master bedroom.
There’s space to please everyone both indoors and outdoors and plenty of parking and the garage too.
Situated on the outskirts of the town centre and yet within easy reach of Bodmin’s amenities, the property is ideally suited for a growing family requiring local facilities on the doorstep and yet within easy reach of surrounding towns such as Wadebridge and St Austell, not to mention the A30, making this the perfect location for commuters!
