This elegant Grade II listed two bedroom cottage with unique architect designed contemporary kitchen extension

Located in an elevated position within this favoured and bustling market town is The Cottage, a Grade II listed two bedroom Georgian cottage of wonderful character and a totally unique architect designed kitchen extension that equally compliments and contrasts the original building. The peaceful and convenient location, towards the top end of Whiterock Road, provides some lovely views across the town and beyond while it is just a short stroll into the town itself and the extensive range of shops and amenities on offer.

Noteworthy attributes include sliding sash windows with unobtrusive secondary glazing, ornate fireplace, slate floor, original doors and recessed cupboards, two genuine double bedrooms with built-in storage and a stylish and contemporary shower room. The piece de resistance is the aforementioned kitchen extension. Conceived by award winning Innes Architects and constructed in 2013, this energy efficient contemporary intervention both contrasts and compliments the original stone façade using a glazed link to maximise the light and distinguish the extension as a separate recognisable volume. There is a clear rhythm of solid and void in its enclosure in order to provide privacy from the neighbouring properties when needed and light and views when privacy is not at stake. A large and full height segment of glazing perfectly frames a view of the picturesque garden that sits behind the house. The kitchen itself is fitted with a range of cream floor and wall cabinets and drawers complete with integrated eye level oven and grill, induction hob, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Two original reception rooms, one with an ornate open fireplace and both with recessed cupboards and shelving sit either side of the entrance hall. The entrance door is located to the side of the cottage and with slate floor underfoot and understairs storage available, a turned staircase rises to the first floor. The first floor comprises two double bedrooms, each with a sliding sash window and built-in storage while between them is a contemporary shower room complete with a crisp white suite.

The rear garden of The Cottage is wonderfully picturesque, beautifully landscaped and superbly maintained. This enclosed space is bounded by original stone walls, quarried brick and established shrubs and trees. Slate underfoot precedes the healthy green lawn and a very cute potting shed complete with slate roof. There is even the original outside WC with stained glass door. The gate at the rear of the garden leads to a pedestrian right of way across neighbouring gardens. To the front is a small slate courtyard and path leading up the side of the building. Services to the property include mains water, electricity and drainage. Please note that the neighbouring property has a flying freehold in a small section of the loft space.

The Cottage is ready for immediate occupation with no onward chain and we at Jackie Stanley highly recommend an internal inspection at the earliest opportunity to fully appreciate the contrast of both the original character and architectural contemporary addition.

Wadebridge is a thriving market town on the river Camel, which offers a fine selection of independent shops and amenities including a sports centre, cinema, a primary and secondary school and a superb range of supermarkets. Wadebridge also enjoys the Camel Trail, an ever popular and almost level cycle route which runs between Padstow and Bodmin, formerly the railway track. The town is equal distance from the picturesque harbour village of Padstow with its famous restaurants and quaint shops and the sought after watersports haven of Rock. The nearest station is Bodmin Parkway which is approximately 15 miles distant as is the nearest airport at Newquay.

To find The Cottage, drive over the bridge towards Wadebridge town centre. Turn right at the mini roundabout onto Eddystone Road and then turn left at the next roundabout. At the next mini roundabout, turn left onto Whiterock Road and drive up the hill past the police station. The Cottage can be found towards the top end of Whiterock Road on the right hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is PL27 7ED.
