Set back from the road with excellent parking to the front, this elegant former post office is thought to date from the early to mid 1800's. The property has been lovingly renovated, updated and extended by the current owners who started that work in 2012. From the ground up the property was brought into this century with damp proofing and insulation, modern wiring (including cat 6 cabling for the superfast broadband), re-roofing and re-plumbing including the installation of a high specification heating system with zoned controls and underfloor heating. To the rear, the property was extended and at the top of the garden a large insulated cabin has been installed. The entrance to the property is a beautifully varnished hardwood stable door and stepping inside you immediately notice the practical and attractive limestone flooring. The ground floor was dug out, insulated and damp proofed before having the underfloor heating system and then the stone tiles laid throughout the ground floor. The continuity of the flooring ties the spaces together and inside the house feels quite modern. The entrance hallway is wide with the stairs at the end. The living room is a large dual aspect room spanning the depth of the property which has a wood burning stove and glazed door opening to the rear garden. Across the hallway there is a further flexible reception room which is currently used as a study but which could easily be used as bedroom four or a separate formal dining room. There is a second wood burner in there too so it would also make a great snug. Towards the rear of the property is a spacious kitchen / dining room. The fitted kitchen has a range of cream shaker style units with solid oak block work surfaces with under-mounted sink and integrated appliances. The dishwasher and fridge / freezer are both built-in and there is space for a large range cooker with LPG bottled gas to fuel the hobs. A chimney style extractor is fitted over and there is a separate larder cupboard. The dining space is light and bright due to the glazed roof lantern and bi-folding doors which open onto a sheltered patio. There is a separate utility room with sink and space for washing machine and tumble dryer and at one end there is a cloakroom / WC. Heading upstairs the landing is beautifully carpeted and there are three generous bedrooms. Bedroom one has fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room with white basin and WC and a large shower enclosure with thermostatic mixer shower. Bedrooms two and three have lovely old floorboards and there is a large family bathroom with shower over the bath and suite with basin and WC. Both the en-suite and the family bathroom have dual fuel (hot water and electric) ladder style towel rail heaters and out on the landing there is a further WC also. Outside there is rear access to the garage and in fact the garage has access doors at the front and rear giving easy access to the garden. The garage has been re-roofed and has excellent boarded loft storage with access ladder and is generally large and spacious. For additional storage there is also a bike shed and further garden shed. Outside to the rear of the garage there is a gardeners WC and steps up to the delightful garden which has mature trees, a large lawn and many shrubs and flowers planted. There's a recently installed greenhouse too in this sunny enclosed garden. At the upper end of the garden there is a large sunny patio where a substantial cabin has been built. This flexible garden room is insulated and double glazed and has running water, light and power. There is a small kitchen and even a shower and has been used for working from home, accommodating visitors and as a summerhouse. It would make an ideal gym or playroom too. To the rear of the cabin there is a long lean-to shelter giving further storage and there is a rear garden gate which leads out to a footpath. Access from here is quick and easy to the creek, fields and the coastal paths. This cherished home has been very well thought out and is presented in lovely decorative order throughout.
Mylor Bridge is one of Cornwall's sought after waterside villages offering a fantastic blend of local village facilities including shops, pubs, dentist, doctors and the thriving primary school. The location is perfect between Truro and Falmouth while also having access to Mylor Creek and the sailing waters of the Fal Estuary (with Mylor Yacht Harbour a short distance away where there are a choice of cafes and restaurants along the waterfront and numerous marine activities on offer including dinghy sailing at Restronguet Sailing Club where Sir Ben Ainslie began his sailing career). Within walking distance is the famous Pandora Inn however you may prefer to arrive by boat and tie up alongside their floating pontoon! It's not all about sailing though, there's a great public playing field and park with sporting facilities, or if you prefer a leisurely stroll there are endless walks taking in the breath taking views across tidal creeks and lush fields.
