Superbly presented modern country house, arranged as two large residences, nestled in an attractive semi rural location within the hamlet of Hoopers Bridge, between the pretty villages of Nanstallon and Lanivet in North Cornwall, near to the Camel Valley and the renowned Camel Trail cycle path that links to Wadebridge and Padstow.
The current owners have considerably extended and adapted the property to create a residence capable of housing two generations of their family, via two interlinking yet entirely self contained and independent two storey houses. They have cleverly designed it so it has the ability for them to be interlinked or they have the ability to close off the accommodation from one another completely, as is sometimes desired. The overall layouts provide a very comfortable family sized 4 bedroomed main house, with a very spacious and luxurious 2 double bedroom secondary residence.
The main residence welcomes you via a broad entrance hall, with a turning staircase to the first floor and access to the ground floor office. Double doors open in to the large main reception room and kitchen. This very spacious 34’ x 22’ triple aspect room is set out in an open plan style, with the beautifully fitted modern kitchen area offering ample space in which to cook and socialise, with a large l-shaped unit creating a division from the dining and sitting areas. There is a delightful granite fireplace with cosy wood burner in the sitting room area and there is also plenty of space for a sizeable dining table. Two separate glazed doors open out on to the large outside patio, making the whole space ideal for indoor and outdoor entertaining. Upstairs, the large master bedroom has lovely views from feature floor to ceiling windows and there is a comfortable en suite bathroom. The three additional bedrooms are all good sized and these are serviced via attractive family bathroom fitted with both a bath and separate shower.
The second residence is accessed via an independent entrance door, that opens in to its sizeable entrance hall with the staircase rising to the first floor. The main reception room is a great size room at 22’ x 21’ with a fireplace and wood burner in situ. The feature and talking point of the room though has to be its central glass topped wine cellar, that is located in the centre of the room. Adjacent is a fabulous garden room that is flooded with light via its glass atrium roof light and a large set of concertina doors that open out to the westerly gardens. This excellent westerly facing room room has a lovely atmosphere due to its calming decor and it even comes complete with a compact hidden kitchen area and a fabulous pizza oven, making it ideal for evening entertaining! The excellent sized double aspect l-shaped kitchen dining room comes complete with a feature oil fired range cooker and it also has a door opening out to a private patio area. The ground floor is completed by a utility room and the downstairs WC. The first floor houses the master and guest bedrooms. Both are very spacious double rooms and have en suite bath and shower rooms respectively.
The property could also be reverted back to a more traditional layout, with minimal building works required at both ground and first floor levels.
