Located in the desirable old town area of Padstow just yards from the wave beaten boats and wheeling gulls of the working harbour, 9 Church Lane is a highly prominent and substantial five bedroom residence of over 1600 square feet with an impressive three storeys of immaculately presented accommodation and a beautiful, private and rather large garden with established plants, shrubs and small trees. This enclosed space is a surprisingly tranquil haven so close to the hustle and bustle of the vibrant town.
Thought to have originally been two cottages which explains its size and some of the unique features, 9 Church Lane has now been owned by the current family for 31 years making this a rare opportunity in the market.
After a day exploring the narrow streets of Padstow, retire to one of the five bedrooms, three on the first floor and two more on the second floor. Interestingly, each bedroom on the second floor has its own staircase, built in storage and rear aspect window. The three bedrooms on the first floor each have beamed ceilings, two of the bedrooms have built in storage and the large master bedroom has a dual aspect. A modern bathroom with a crisp white suite completes the accommodation on this floor.
The ground floor is very characterful. With a central entrance vestibule, the lounge/dining room stretches to over 25ft in width. Exposed local stone and beamed ceiling add to the appeal alongside an open fireplace at one end and a multifuel stove at the other. With a triple aspect allowing for ample natural light, French doors to the rear patio and a central staircase rising to the first floor, this is a delightful reception room with plenty of interesting features. The light and bright kitchen to the rear forms part of an extension, conceived by the current vendors. This incorporates a contemporary kitchen with pale blue floor and wall cabinets and drawers, space for freestanding appliances and a breakfast bar. Beyond the kitchen is a separate utility room with space for white goods and home to the gas boiler. There is also a very useful shower room complete with glass shower enclosure, WC and wash hand basin.
Least we forget the aforementioned delightful garden. This is very private and unexpectedly large set over three separate tiered areas. The patio immediately to the rear of the cottage is a real suntrap and bordered by a colourful array of plants alongside a raised area of bonded resin paving. Head through the rose arch and onto an area of lawn with elegant and mature planted borders. At the top of the garden is a raised and large area of decking - a delightful spot for al fresco dining or a glass of wine in the evening as the sun goes down. Services to the property include mains water, gas, electricity and drainage and there is UPVC double glazing throughout.
Located in the heart of the conservation area just yards from the vibrant harbour, quaint shops, cafes and restaurants of picturesque Padstow, we at Jackie Stanley highly recommend an internal viewing of this most impressive property and beautiful private garden.
