This 4/5 bedroom Cornelius period home has been beautifully modernised to suit family life, enjoys a private yet convenient rural location, offers a 2 bedroom annexe and comes with NO CHAIN. Must view.
Gwarnick is a magical place to live and bring up a family. Having grown up here in the 1970s and 80s I benefitted from the freedom the area had to offer. The neighbouring Farmer is a delight and a great neighbour who cares for the area. For the last 10 years I have raised my own family here. Nothing much has changed apart from the development of Gwarnick House which has been fully refurbished and modernised whilst maintaining the classic Cornelius exterior. Its a very special place.
Humberts are delighted to present this beautifully modernised 4 bedroomed detached period home. Designed by renowned Truro architect Alfred Cornelius, the impressive character and commanding presence at the heart of its private plot is reflective of this distinctive 1930s Cornish Style. Creative internal alterations combined with stylish cosmetic improvements make this substantial home perfectly equipped for modern family life and caters for those now able to work from home.
A light and welcoming central entrance hall leads to the living room to one side and the focal hub of the family home to the other, a magnificent dual aspect kitchen diner, which epitomises the style witnessed throughout the property. The fitted kitchen comprises a bank of tall units and further storage in the peninsula breakfast bar finished with a polished Quartz worktop. Integrated appliances include twin mid-height fan ovens, dishwasher and induction hob with extractor over. The tiled floor continues through to adjoining useful storage areas. The adjacent utility/shower room leaves a little personalisation opportunity for the new owner.
There is a spacious dual aspect living room which boasts a bay window to the front and impressive wood burner with granite hearth as the focal point. The adjoining room via glazed double doors is used as a sizable home office but equally, with little work could be a fifth bedroom.
First floor accommodation comprises four good sized bedrooms, all of which enjoy beautiful rural views with the spacious master bedroom benefitting from built in storage and an en-suite shower room. The bright family bathroom is tastefully finished with tile floor and walls.
The detached annexe with its own drive is a fantastic bonus which offers versatility and flexibility. This incredibly equipped bungalow offers two generous double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and the other with access to a modernised shower room. There is a large living room and a kitchen diner with good storage and modern appliances and double doors to a courtyard providing excellent light. This is great ancillary accommodation or potential for letting income.
The generous south facing plot of approx. 1 acre is almost entirely tree lined for maximum privacy and seclusion whilst benefitting from a part opened boundary to capture the tranquil rolling countryside and wild deer. The gardens are laid largely to lawn whilst enjoying a generous patio/sun terrace immediately from the property with a lower gravelled area perfect for a BBQ and fire pit. To the rear is a sizable patio and further lawn which could easily be designated to the annexe. Additionally, there is block constructed outbuilding which provides extensive storage. Beyond a gated access is ample parking.
