On the market for the first time in 55 years and situated close to the centre of the bustling village of St Merryn is Camelot, a substantial detached dormer house with gardens and grounds of approximately 0.4 acres. The location affords easy access to the beautiful nearby beaches of Harlyn Bay, Porthcothan Bay and Treyarnon Bay with picturesque Padstow just three miles distant.
The house is full of natural light, is decorated in soft neutral colours and has UPVC double glazed windows throughout. As illustrated on the accompanying floorplans, the accommodation briefly comprises a spacious and inviting reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor. All the rooms are generously proportioned with the dual aspect lounge having an open fireplace and ample space for sofas and occasional furniture. The dining room also has a dual aspect and a small conservatory at the far end overlooking the garden. There is a ground floor double bedroom with a dual aspect, contemporary family bathroom complete with glass shower enclosure and separate bath and a handy separate cloakroom. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of floor and wall cabinets and drawers, electric oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Additionally, there is a generous size utility room with all the necessary space and plumbing for white goods which, in turn, leads into the integral garage. This has an up and over door, windows, power and light. Up on the first floor is a spacious landing area, currently utilised as office space and two generous double bedrooms with useful recessed storage.
The outstanding feature of Camelot are the gardens and grounds, measuring approximately 0.4 acres in size. These comprise a swathe of lawn wrapping around the property interjected by a concrete driveway that continues down one side to the garage at the rear. To the front, the array of plants and shrubs are established and well maintained while to the rear is a detached outbuilding and further hardstanding. The boundaries consist of fence and natural hedges with the rear bordered by a paddock. Services to the property include mains water, electricity & drainage with an oil fired central heating system.
The bustling village of St Merryn offers a good range of amenities including several restaurants, a post office/grocery store, a bakers/delicatessen, a petrol station/garage and two Public Houses including Rick Stein's 'The Cornish Arms' serving great food and local ales. There is also a doctors surgery and Primary School with an excellent reputation. The village is a great base from which to explore the surrounding coastline which includes the beaches of Harlyn Bay, Trevone Bay, Constantine Bay, Treyarnon and Porthcothan which are all located within a 2 to 4 mile radius. The historic and picturesque fishing town of Padstow is just three miles distant and offers an extensive range of cafes, public houses and restaurants, none more so than Paul Ainsworth's Michelin starred No.6, cool seafood bar Prawn On The Lawn and of course Rick Steins esteemed Seafood restaurant. Within 9 miles is the thriving market town of Wadebridge on the river Camel, which offers a fine selection of shops and amenities including a sports centre, cinema, a primary and secondary school and a selection of supermarkets.
