Secluded, quiet and amidst 1.5 acres of beautiful, mature woodland gardens is this large four bedroom house occupying a long, sweeping driveway, ample parking, double garage and a 30 foot detached timber barn / secure workshop with separate access from the rear. A true countryside retreat, Woodgrove House is surrounded by rolling countryside in this rural location of Point Mills in the Bissoe Valley, yet it is conveniently located between Truro and Falmouth.
The property is surrounded by its gardens occupying a wealth of broad-leaf trees and mature shrubs which are a haven for wildlife all year round. The land is bordered and enclosed via mature oaks offering privacy and seclusion. The gardens are home to a number of other trees such as silver birch, hawthorn, Monterey pine, ash, acer, sycamore, horse chestnut, and Magnolia heavens scent. There is also a range of mature shrubs such as azalea, camellia, rhododendron, rosehip, weigela and laurel, which change and flourish through the year. In addition, daffodils followed by primroses, a sea of bluebells, lilac, honeysuckle, lavender and succulents offer colour through the seasons. In the garden you will see a large, detached timber barn / secure workshop which can be accessed via the rear of the land with double gates for vehicular access, making it optimal for potential conversion subject to necessary planning consents or even for boat or vehicle storage.
Next to this is the orchard where you will find fruit trees such as bramley apple, pear and plum, leading to further oak tree woodland. This ‘woodland garden’ is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Woodgrove House was built in 1986 and has only had two previous owners besides our client, who has been here for 26 years. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a modern property with extensive grounds in this locality. It has no properties bordering its land. Woodgrove is of excellent proportions offering spacious accommodation across two floors. It has the countryside feel with hardwood window and door frames throughout where potential buyers may wish to retain the theme of 'Woodgrove' or put their own stamp on the property. There is huge potential for extension and improvements subject to any necessary planning consent.
