This luxurious three bedroom stone cottage exhibits an acute attention to detail

Rarely does a property of such quality, class and distinction come to market so, with all three characteristics in abundance, we at Jackie Stanley's have great pleasure in presenting Dormouse Cottage. Situated in the heart of the sleepy rural hamlet of Penrose just five miles from picturesque Padstow and close the revered bays, Dormouse Cottage exhibits an incredible attention to detail in what has been a comprehensive top down programme of restoration and refurbishment.

Every inch of this exquisite three bedroom cottage displays precision detail and elegant taste alongside the original character one would expect of a property of this age. The year long project was undertaken and completed by Perrings of Cornwall, a renowned local builder, who's fine workmanship is also displayed in several other adjacent cottages.

The cottage has two principal reception rooms either side of the inviting entrance porch and reception hall. With original slate flagstones underfoot and beams overhead, the comprehensively fitted cooks kitchen is modern and sleek in design with a De Deitrich induction hob, Pyrolitic oven and built in microwave, Bosch American fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and integrated wine cooler. Unique timber clad walls continue into the dining area with an old fashioned bespoke Cornish Range at the far end.

Step into the cosy sitting room and take a moment to appreciate the eclectic mix of attractive stone wall, horizontal clad wall, soft neutral colour palette and original fireplace complete with a wood burning stove, cloam oven and timber mantel. Gorgeous!

Ascend to the first floor where three bedrooms can be found. Oozing sophistication, the two sumptuous double bedrooms have high vaulted and beamed ceilings, exposed original stonework, horizontal woodwork and wide painted floorboards underfoot. One has a contemporary en-suite shower room while the other has an old fashioned uplit slipper bath tucked away in the alcove. The third bedroom has built in toe to toe single beds and a high vaulted ceiling while the main bathroom is luxurious and calming - crisp white sanitary ware including a bidet, stylish fittings, thermostatic shower over bath, underfloor heating and motion sensor lighting complete the exemplary accommodation.

Step outside into the south west facing suntrap cottage garden and enjoy alfresco dining anytime of day. Pretty as a picture, established and well stocked, a slate patio abuts the flower beds with a path, garden gate and rose arch leading out to the graveled driveway with the detached cedar clad garage adjacent. External storage is well catered for with a cedar clad storage shed attached to the front side of the cottage. There is also a working well under the front patio, currently set in the stone. The hot outdoor shower is perfectly placed for sandy wetsuits and the hot outdoor hose for sandy paws. We understand Barn Owls nest in the Owl Box every year which is located on the back wall of Dormouse. Services to the property include mains electricity & water and septic tank drainage with superfast broadband connectivity.

Beautifully tucked away by the village green in this most tranquil of hamlets, this picture perfect cottage is almost flawless and interested parties may find it hard to resist the quality, character and attention to detail.

The quiet rural hamlet of Penrose lies within five miles of the historic and picturesque fishing town of Padstow, offering an extensive range of cafes, public houses and restaurants, none more so than Paul Ainsworth's Michelin starred No.6, cool seafood bar Prawn On The Lawn and of course Rick Steins esteemed Seafood restaurant. Within three miles is the bustling village of St Merryn offering a good range of amenities including several restaurants, a post office/grocery store, a bakers/delicatessen, a petrol station/garage and two Public Houses including Rick Stein's 'The Cornish Arms' serving great food and local ales. There is also a doctors surgery and Primary School with an excellent reputation. The cottage is a great base from which to explore the surrounding coastline that includes the beaches of Harlyn Bay, Trevone Bay, Constantine Bay and Treyarnon which are all located within a three mile radius. The nearest mainline station is Bodmin Parkway which is approximately 20 miles distant with the nearest airport at Newquay just 6 miles away.
