This elegant & hugely characterful three bedroom 200 year old cottage is centrally located in a sought after village

Merrydown Cottage is a beautiful 200 year old cottage, centrally located within the sought after village of St Mabyn just four miles from the bustling town of Wadebridge. This elegant three bedroom period residence has an exceptionally beautiful and private south facing garden which overlooks the Grade I listed church of St Mabena.

Merrydown Cottage is a fine and superbly maintained residence which offers an abundance of original and appealing features including exposed roof trusses, beamed ceilings, period fireplaces, thick stone walls, slate hanging and small paned windows which seamlessly combine with modern day conveniences alongside a modern fitted kitchen, a charming bathroom, a wet room style shower room as well as a separate garage and convenient driveway parking.

Enter the cottage via the centrally located dining room where small paned windows to the rear enjoy views over the gardens. The prominent feature and focal point of the room is a superb granite open fireplace alongside the beamed ceiling, deep sill and staircase rising to the first floor. Step into the cosy lounge which has windows to the front, side and rear enjoying views over the garden. The focal of this room is the feature inglenook fireplace with cloam oven, complimenting door and inset cast iron woodburning stove sat on a slate hearth with timber mantel above. The beamed ceiling and window seat make the lounge a restful haven.

A range of modern wall and floor cabinets and drawers with a rolled edge working surface and contrasting tiled splashback make up the majority of the kitchen. With windows to the front and rear enjoying views over the garden, there is a freestanding electric range, a gorgeous recessed Rayburn, a beamed ceiling and an appealing window seat with deep sill. There is a side porch which acts as a great boot room and is home to the Megaflow hot water cylinder with space and plumbing for a washing machine. From here is a wetroom style shower room complete with WC, wash basin and heated towel rail.

The first floor landing is a feature all on its own, split level with a window seat and exposed roof trusses. The first bedroom, a generous double, has a dual aspect including a view over the garden, deep sills, exposed roof trusses and built in wardrobes. The second double bedroom has a wonderful vaulted ceiling exposing the original beams and trusses together with a deep sill and window overlooking the gardens and church. This bedroom has custom built shelving and wardrobes. At the end of the landing is the third bedroom, again with a vaulted ceiling exposing the original beams and trusses together with a window overlooking the gardens. Moving into the bathroom, this has a crisp white suite comprising a panelled bath, pedestal wash handbasin and low level WC. A window and Velux rooflight fills the space with natural light. Part tiled walls, a heated towel rail and exposed roof trusses complete the look.

Heading outside, Merrydown Cottage is approached over the gravelled driveway which gives access through a timber pedestrian gate into the gardens. The beautiful gardens lie to the rear of the property and offer an excellent degree of privacy, enjoying a southerly aspect with direct views to the church of St Mabena beyond. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with an abundance and wide variety of mature and established trees, shrubs and plants including a wisteria with a profusion of blooms in Spring. Adjoining the main cottage and complimenting the slate hangings is a slate flag stone paved patio with steps rising up to the lawned garden. A Cornish stone wall to the rear retains a vegetable plot with a slate hung block built tool shed, very useful for storage. Lastly, the separate garage which measures approximately 19’6 by 14’7 is complete with power and light. Services to the property include mains water and electricity with a septic tank drainage system.
