Set quietly on the outskirts of the town of Newquay in the rural hamlet of Kestle Mill, this generous home has a few neighbours for peace of mind but feels quiet and secluded.
The initial shared drive accesses the detached single garage and then becomes a private driveway as it passes the house. The drive leads down to a large parking area in front of the stable block.
The side entrance to the house leads to an inner hall with exposed beams, which gives access to a country kitchen with oak cabinetry, granite worktop and a featured Aga. The double aspect room has a stable door leading out to the garden. There is a separate utility room/downstairs W/C on the opposite side of the hall where the boiler is also housed.
The inner hall then leads to a very large living room. The seating area is laid out around a stone fireplace with an inset wood burning stove. A large picture window overlooks the garden, access of which is given through French doors. This room has an exposed beam ceiling giving it a cosy cottage feel, despite it's larger than average dimensions. There is ample room for dining in this room as well. Stairs from this room lead up to the first-floor bedrooms and new extension.
Originally the first floor was home to two large bedrooms. While one still exists, with built in wardrobes and a nice view over the paddock, the other has been converted into a second sitting room. A new single storey extension adjoins this room which has created two additional bedrooms and a new family shower room. The larger of these rooms is now treated as a master bedroom and has French doors out to the garden (rising ground levels allows the extension to have level access to the rear garden).
This new addition could be used as a 1 or two-bedroom separate annexe or holiday let, being easily segregated from the principal house and having conveniently located plumbing to allow the installation of an independent kitchen (assuming appropriate granted permissions).
A second floor to the original house provides two further bedrooms with large Velux windows offering ample light and good views.
This home is sufficiently large to offer a myriad of uses. Either as a single-family home or divided to create two separate accommodations.
The garden to the rear of the house is a terraced lawn, the upper part outside the new addition while the lower part drops down to be level outside the living rooms and kitchen.
The stable block requires some maintenance, however offers two boxes and a tack room. The gated paddock is approximately .64 acres and gently slopes down to the river which defines the northern boundary.
