Backways is a very elegant house with stone/slate elevations, multi angled slate roof and arts and crafts influences. Accessed via a very quiet no through lane, ending on the North Cornwall Coast Path, the property benefits from it's own gated driveway and parking area with garage.
Entrance into the property is through the front door which leads into the entrance hall and then on into the sitting room complete with dual aspect over the gardens and towards the sea. There is a separate dining room, and a kitchen with light oak units and granite worktops. An oil-fired Aga also heats the hot water. From the kitchen, French windows open onto the gardens. The kitchen has the benefit of a built-in, curved larder with Delabole slate shelving, which forms the lower part of the turret. A door leads to the modern utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a dryer. At the foot of the stairs is the period style family bathroom which includes the original heated towel rail!
Upstairs there are two, good sized bedrooms, one having windows on all four sides including the turret. There is also a third smaller bedroom. There is potential for a fourth double bedroom, by using the current dining room as a bedroom, as the sitting room is large enough to accommodate a dining table and chairs in the bay. The first floor small bedroom has the potential to be converted into a family bathroom, as it sits over the current bathroom. Either of the 2 double bedrooms could accommodate an en-suite.
The gardens are equally as grand as the property and are a feature in their own right. Wrapping around the property and mainly laid to lawn there is a large alfresco dining area which is complete with a large built-in BBQ. This raised gravel and paved seating terrace looks out to the sea and over the gardens. A set of stone steps take you from this terrace to the large lawn which is bordered with well stocked flowering beds and curved hedges with secret arches leading to hidden areas behind. At the bottom of the garden is a very productive vegetable plot with a greenhouse, a wildflower garden and two ponds. There is a workshop 10'5" X 6'8" and Summer House 9'10" X 5'9”.
