This property enjoys a completely private rural position at the head of the picturesque Glynn Valley and possesses most enviable rural views over the rolling countryside of mid Cornwall and the vast expanses of Cardinham Woods.
Bodmin is 3 miles away and provides the wide variety of amenities one would expect from a medium sized town, including a choice of supermarkets and out-of-town retail outlets, educational facilities up to A-level standard and large light industrial estates. A modern leisure centre with swimming pool, the main line railway station and an 18 hole golf and country club are all within 2 miles of the property.
The A38 through the Glynn Valley connects to Liskeard and Plymouth. Access onto the A38 and A30 dual carriageway is within one mile and the latter connects the Cathedral Cities of Truro to the west and Exeter / M5 to the east. Other communication centres are at Newquay airport (approximately 18 miles), with many UK destinations and a cross channel ferry port on the south Devon coast at Plymouth.
The north and south Cornish coasts are within 12-15 miles and there one can enjoy some of the country's finest sandy beaches and spectacular cliff walks.

Extend to about 1.2 acres and have been created by the vendors over many years with tremendous dedication. There is a summer house in a botanical wonderland of trees, shrubs, rhododendrons, azaleas, herbaceous borders, secret gardens and lawns, which cleverly blend together providing immense pleasure and variety of colour throughout the year. These landscaped gardens also play host to a wide selection of wildlife and many species of garden and farmland birds.
Concealed away to the rear of the garage in a lovely sheltered corner, is a large and productive vegetable garden providing a wide variety of fresh vegetables for the kitchen table as well as a productive soft fruit garden with several varieties of berries. There is also an aluminium framed greenhouse and a GARDEN STORAGE SHED 20' x 10'.
Beyond the garden is a pasture field of some 2.2 acres surrounded by mature hedgerows and a managed arboretum with several species of hardwood and apple trees. The field is level and ideal for keeping a horse or selective stock such as alpacas or llamas.
This extends to 3.3 acres (or thereabouts) and adjoins Lot 1 on its Western boundary. There is also access from a quiet parish road, which provides access into the vast expanses of Cardinham Woods where one can enjoy excellent off-road horse riding.
The purchaser of the homestead will be offered the option to acquire this extra field at valuation.
Strictly by prior appointment with the vendor's sole agents, Stags.
