Fancy yourself an interior designer? This elegant, period property just oozes potential…

If you’re looking for a large house in Cornwall with scope to make your mark, look no further. This impressive, elegant property could be your new spacious and contemporary family home, with room to expand and add value. 

What’s more, this detached Edwardian house is packed with original features and occupies a secluded position enclosed in private grounds. And that’s without factoring in the great Cornish location with countryside and beaches in easy reach!

We know you’re reaching for the phone right now to book a viewing, but in the meantime let us give you a guided tour…

Step through an original glazed wooden door into a spacious hallway filled with natural light. The floor features the original quarry tiles, which are both attractive and practical for shedding muddy boots and sandy wetsuits. 

The ground floor features three large reception rooms; a dining room, drawing room and breakfast room. Expect high ceilings, original fireplaces, ornate coving and original bay and sash windows – whatever your interiors style, there’s so much to work with in these beautiful rooms!

The kitchen is one area of this beautiful house where we think you could really go to town. The country kitchen and pantry is homely and well-equipped right now, but could be extended into the adjoining outbuildings (currently used for storage) if planning permission could be obtained. 

There’s plenty of scope here for a large, contemporary open-plan kitchen and living space to be added to this already desirable property. 

Upstairs a light-filled, spacious landing area gives an impression of what to expect in the generous bedrooms; four double bedrooms and one single room (home office potential perhaps?) 

There’s also a family bathroom and separate WC. Fireplaces, sash windows and original floorboards proliferate throughout, giving a sophisticated feel to the family and guest accommodation. 

Again there is scope upstairs for altering the room arrangements depending on your requirements – for example adding an en-suite bathroom and dressing area to the master bedroom. 

Once you’ve scoped out the interiors at this delightful Cornish property, it’s time to take a recce of the outside space. Again, you won’t be disappointed; the grounds are well maintained and beautifully presented – but an eagle-eyed potential buyer will see further opportunity lurking…

The south-facing gardens are mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs giving a feeling of privacy. Terraces, a pretty arbour and outdoor seating provide plenty of places to sit and relax in this peaceful, secluded spot which is in an elevated position on the outskirts of Bodmin

There’s potential for further seating areas and new planting schemes, and perhaps even an outdoor room, summer house or home office pod…

There’s also a garage with power and lighting (designed for a DIY enthusiast we think!) a coal shed and a further store – useful, well-maintained outbuildings but giving the property huge potential for that contemporary, open-plan kitchen extension we mentioned earlier.
