Redtye Cottage is a detached house, much enlarged from its original cottage form and which now offers comfortable and versatile four/five bedroom accommodation.
The property has been owned by our clients for almost 50 years and is now only available to the market owing to a need to downsize.
During our clients’ ownership the property has been transformed from a modest two bedroom cottage to the four/five bedroom house it is today, and it has been well maintained, boasting modern additions such as uPVC double glazing throughout, a new (installed approximately 1 year ago) oil central heating boiler and all roofs and chimney stacks have been replaced over the course of the last 5 years. Solar panels were installed approximately 2 years ago and have since significantly reduced electricity costs.
The accommodation is beautifully presented and in all comprises a large welcoming hallway, recently fitted shower room, study/bedroom five, sitting room with a fabulous wood burner set into a former Inglenook fireplace with exposed granite lintels and a rounded slate hearth open plan to a sun room, kitchen/dining room with solid wood units and granite worktops complete with electric Aga, utility room and a double garage all to the ground floor.
The majority of the ground floor is laid with slate flooring, whilst a modern split staircase and some of the first floor flooring is solid oak. To the first floor are four double bedrooms – the master with a balcony terrace overlooking the gardens - and a very large family bathroom.
From the roadway is a gated and walled entrance opening on to the drive which is flanked by the paddocks with post and rail fencing on one side and by Rhododendrons bordering the garden on the other side.
The four paddocks are level and have largely been left to rewilding with mown pathways and dense tree and hedge lined boundaries. One of the paddocks is arranged with several outbuildings, including a garage, and polytunnel frames and the paddock beyond this is planted with a small copse of Hawthorn and has been known to see much wildlife activity. Within this paddock are small raised timber sheds and even a stand-alone timber shower cubicle.
The gardens extend to the side of the cottage and comprise a large level lawn ideal for children and pets to play and mature trees border the boundaries offering shelter and privacy from the roadway. At one end of the garden is a raised brick built bench complemented by a matching firepit and a patio from the kitchen/dining room is a work in progress but will offer ample space for sitting out and al fresco dining.
Beyond the garden is a productive vegetable garden with raised beds, fruit cage and various log stores.
The property is positioned along the old A30 approaching Lanivet and so although convenient for accessing the arterial route in and out of the County, the property’s dense treelined boundaries offer shelter and privacy from the roadway and does enjoy a feeling of being very much set on its own. Lanivet offers a range of everyday amenities including church, public house, fish and chip shop, village store and primary school, whilst Bodmin offers an extensive range of facilities and the mainline railway to London (Paddington).
Services: Mains water (a former well is still in-situ) and electricity, septic tank private drainage, oil-fired central heating – the boiler powering hot water to the ground floor and an electric immersion heater providing hot water to the first floor. Electric powered Aga for cooking. Solar panels providing reduced electricity bills. None of these services have been tested and therefore no guarantees can be given.
