Located in a truly tranquil rural position on a hillside above the beautiful Ruthern valley is Glenview House.

Located in a truly tranquil rural position on a hillside above the beautiful Ruthern valley is Glenview House, a fine stone built detached period home offering generous accommodation and a wealth of originality.

The property is situated close to the pretty rural hamlet of Ruthern Bridge with both the larger towns of Bodmin and Wadebridge only a few miles away, The ever popular Camel Trail linking Padstow on the north coast with Bodmin Moor is also within easy reach.

With approximately 0.25 acres of established and mature gardens and grounds, Glenview House is surrounded by forestry and countryside in all its rural splendour, designated an Area of Great Landscape Value.

The current owners have cleverly extended the accommodation during their tenure to create a large modern living space complete with wood burning stove, oak floor, skirting, architrave, oak doors and windows. This space creates a nice contrast to the characterful accommodation found throughout the rest of the house.

As the accompanying floorplans illustrate, the front door opens into an entrance lobby. This has a slate flag floor and to the left hand side there is a handy cloakroom with WC, sink and a porthole window. Adjacent is the utility room which has a range of floor and wall cabinets, contrasting work surfaces and a stainless steel sink unit with mixer taps. There is plumbing and space for a washing machine and a built in airing cupboard housing the oil fired central heating boiler. To the other side of the entrance lobby is the kitchen which has double aspect windows and a range of timber fronted floor and wall cabinets with matching display cabinets and contrasting work surfaces incorporating a stainless steel sink unit with mixer taps and a five ring gas hob. There is space for a freestanding fridge freezer and an eye level electric double oven is built in.

An archway leads through to the dining room which has French doors opening out to the side terrace. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a double bedroom which could also be utilised as an office or reception room.

The entrance hall has a staircase to the first floor with built in understairs cupboard. The first floor has a galleried landing with a large arched window looking out to the rear. The master bedroom has two windows enjoying far reaching  views over the Ruthern valley and has built in bedroom furniture and an en-suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes. The family bathroom is large and has a suite comprising a panelled bath, WC, wash hand basin and separate shower enclosure.

The property is approached through large entrance gates onto a tarmacadam driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles. The surrounding borders are well stocked with a mature variety of plants, shrubs and trees with wall and fence boundaries beyond. A few steps lead down to a wide footpath which extends along the side of the house to the rear.

The pretty gardens wrap around two sides of the house and have a lovely variety of mature plants, shrubs and trees including camellias and magnolias. There is a detached double garage alongside the parking area with an up and over door to the front, side pedestrian door and power and light connected. This is beautifully faced in local stone with a pitched slate roof. The base of a stone outbuilding remains which has water and power connected. With the appropriate permissions, this has great potential to be rebuilt into a studio, workshop or even an annexe. The garden has a level lawn bounded by stone walls and beautifully stocked borders. At the far end there is a patio seating area and greenhouse. Running along the side of the house at a higher level is a terrace enjoying views of the Ruthern valley below. This leads around to the rear of the house where there is a further well stocked and level garden adjacent and accessible from the new extension. Services to the property include mains water and electricity, oil fired central heating, private drainage and fibre optic broadband.

To find Glenview House, follow Trevanion Road south from Wadebridge town centre and continue along this road for approximately 3 miles passing the crossroads at Burlawn along the way. After almost 3 miles there is a left hand turn signposted to Withiel & Ruthern. Follow this lane for approximately 2.5 miles and Glenview House can be found on the right hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is PL30 5NP.
