This unique & extremely pretty detached three bedroom Victorian cottage has an abundance of character & appeal

Situated in the pretty hamlet of Little Petherick within a short drive of both picturesque Padstow and vibrant Wadebridge, Bridge Cottage is a unique Victorian cottage standing handsome and proud within beautifully tended well stocked gardens that border the gently flowing Little Petherick creek. This picturesque location, adjacent to the bridge in Little Petherick, is pleasantly unexpected – hidden away behind tall wooden gates to reveal a private, enclosed and enchanting setting.

The property offers over 1270 square feet of accommodation with an abundance of character and appeal. On the ground floor, there is a lovely open plan sitting, dining room and kitchen with a full height brick fireplace housing a cast iron wood burning stove as the focal point. At the end of the room, attractive French doors face south and open onto the garden with a second set of French doors opening onto the patio at the rear. Gorgeous wide and exposed floorboards run through the room to a tiled floor that serves the kitchen area. Fitted with a range of oak cabinets and drawers, the kitchen is topped with granite work surfaces and integrated with an eye level oven and microwave, a gas hob, extractor fan and stainless steel sink. There is even a separate utility room and ground floor cloakroom. Across the slate tiled central hallway you will find a second reception room, a pleasantly cosy space with a brick fireplace and open fire, exposed floorboards and a sunny dual aspect.

Head up the turned staircase to the split level landing and first floor which reveals three genuine double bedrooms, the master having a dual aspect and feature fireplace. The family bathroom is spacious and complete with a white porcelain suite that includes a bath, separate shower enclosure and bidet. Further noteworthy attributes include an excellent loft space, timber windows with secondary glazing and mains gas central heating.

The gardens of Bridge Cottage are enchanting, a beautifully tended and well stocked array of established plants, shrubs and trees with a level lawn and patio. To the south western boundary flows the very pretty Little Petherick Creek with steps leading down and along the edge. Complete with a brick built barbeque, pond, a circular stone table, a timber framed double garage, a graveled parking area and tall wooden entry gates, the outside space of Bridge Cottage is a picturesque setting for outdoor dining or to enjoy the afternoon and evening sunshine. Services to the property include mains gas, water, electricity and drainage.

Suitable for either residential use, as a holiday home or holiday let, we at Jackie Stanley recommend viewing Bridge Cottage at your earliest convenience to fully appreciate the property and situation.
