This contemporary four bedroom detached residence with a one bedroom self contained annexe

Transformed by an all encompassing and complete renovation programme by the current vendors where no stone has been left unturned and no expense spared, Ponderosa represents an outstanding opportunity to acquire a highly contemporary and substantial detached four bedroom bungalow with an attached one bedroom annexe set in the picturesque rural hamlet of Talskiddy, just two miles north of the former market town of St Columb, nine miles from picturesque Padstow and just six miles from Newquay airport. The property's rural setting allows for peaceful living yet is within easy reach of main transport links via the A39 which is just minutes away.

Modernised and presented with a huge sense of contemporary style throughout, this immaculate home provides flexible accommodation and outside spaces for all seasons, including level lawned gardens to the front and rear and an extensive raised brick paved patio which stretches across the entire rear of the property.

The extensive transformation has included the installation of four high end bathrooms, all complete with Altro flooring and underfloor heating, designer Hansgrohe shower systems and crisp white Vitra sanitary ware. The vendors have also installed a new pressurised hot water and heating system. There are four excellently sized bedrooms, two of which have en suite wet rooms with the master and third bedroom having French doors opening to the brick paved patio. The additional family bathroom is finished to the same high specification.

The living space and kitchen/dining room are especially noteworthy. A freestanding double sided cast iron log burner elegantly serves both rooms which are also divided by two sets of French doors. The lounge is a delightful comfortable space with a large bay window affording plenty of natural light and remote controlled blinds. The gorgeous kitchen has a comprehensive range of cream fronted floor and wall cabinets, drawers and pan drawers complete with an oak block work surface, ceramic Belfast sink, breakfast bar and integrated induction range cooker and dishwasher. An atrium style skylight and windows provide an enormous amount of light which floods the room. The dining area is extremely large and benefits from French doors to the patio in the rear.

The self contained annexe has its own external access as well as an interconnecting door accessed internally from the main accommodation via the utility room. The accommodation briefly comprises a delightful sitting room, a wet room style shower room finished to the same high specification as the other bathrooms, a kitchen with contemporary floor and wall cabinets, electric oven and induction hob and a double bedroom with French doors to the patio and garden.

To the front of Ponderosa is a pretty lawed garden interspersed with an array of established plants, shrubs and Cornish palms. This is fully enclosed with a picket fence and a five bar gate giving access to the huge driveway which provides space for approximately four vehicles. A five bar gate leads around the side of Ponderosa to the rear garden. This is mainly laid to lawn and extremely private. An expanse of brick paved patio stretches across the entire width of the property with a gently sloping walkway.

Additional noteworthy features include solid oak internal doors, UPVC double glazed windows and doors, two large cloak cupboards, chrome light and electrical sockets, low wattage LED downlighters and light fittings, 32 solar panels with super lithium ION battery bank, an excellent EPC rating of a B83 and a detached garage with electric roller door. We understand the 32 solar panels on the south facing roof have a heat generation of 8 kilowatts which is twice the standard maximum one usually sees on domestic property. The estimated feed in tariff over the last twelve months is approximately £2000. The super lithium ION battery bank stores up to an estimated 4 kilowatt hours which can then be used in non daylight hours. Services to the property include mains water, electricity and drainage with an oil fired central heating system and fibreoptic broadband.

An internal viewing is highly recommended at the earliest opportunity to fully appreciate the versatile high specification accommodation and idyllic position Ponderosa affords.

The quiet rural hamlet of Talskiddy is a hidden gem, lying inland within 9 miles of the historic and picturesque fishing village of Padstow and less than two miles from the old market town of St Columb. Padstow offers an extensive range of cafes, public houses and restaurants, none more so than Paul Ainsworth's Michelin starred No.6 and of course Rick Steins esteemed Seafood restaurant. St Columb is an historic old market town offering a comprehensive range of amenities including banks, public houses, a butchers, convenience stores and St Columb Primary School which is recognised as an outstanding academy school. The market town of Wadebridge is just 8 miles away and provides an extensive range of independent retailers and several supermarkets. The cottage is a great base from which to explore the surrounding coastline and within easy motoring distance are the beautiful beaches of Mawgan Porth, Harlyn Bay, Trevone Bay, Constantine Bay and Treyarnon all offering access to the south west coast path. The nearest mainline station is Bodmin Parkway which is approximately 19 miles distant with the nearest airport at Newquay just 6 miles away with internal and international flights.

To find Ponderosa, leave Padstow and follow the A389 for approximately 6.5 miles passing Trevisker Garden Centre along the way. Continue along the A389 as it becomes the B3274 and follow all the way to Winnards Perch roundabout. At the roundabout, turn right onto the A39 and drive for approximately 1 mile before turning right at signs for Talskiddy. Drive for about half a mile before taking the first turning on the right. Follow the lane down towards the village and Ponderosa can be found along on the right hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is TR9 6EG.
