The property We are extremely proud to present this wonderful detached residence to you.
Budock Cottage is a substantial granite property dating back pre-war and designed by renowned architect of the time Alfred Cornelius. Set within a very private corner plot which affords garden to all sides, the majority of which is South/West facing and is well stocked with established exotic plants and trees. To the side is a large insulated detached garage with driveway parking in front and to the rear a detached outbuilding, also insulated, currently utilised as a utility and store but could perhaps be a work from home office or studio/workshop if needed.
The accommodation has the generous proportions and character typical of a house of this era and has undergone extensive renovation throughout in recent years. On the ground floor is a wide inviting entrance hallway which provides access to a large bay window living room, good sized second reception room and an open plan farmhouse style kitchen/diner with bay window space for dining, pantry and cloakroom off. Up the lovely turning staircase to the first floor one finds three great bedrooms, the master of which is en-suite, as well as a large family bath and shower room.
This is a perfect family home and we can't recommend a viewing highly enough, excitingly this opportunity also comes available with no onward chain complications to concern - superb!
