This substantial four bedroom detached 1930’s house is full of traditional character & in need of refurbishment

Henley House is a substantial four bedroom detached property built in 1932, full of character and in need of refurbishment throughout. The property has a huge amount of scope, an opportunity to modernise alongside the original features of a period home such as stripped wood floors, bay windows and fireplace with wood burning stove. Additionally, there is a conservatory which is in need of replacement and a ground floor extension that was formally a village shop. The attached garage to the side of the property measures over 24 feet in length with off road parking adjacent to the road and a store to the rear. The plot on which Henley House resides is generous and lawned gardens can be found to the front and side, bordered by a small stream with open farmland beyond.


The property is double fronted with a central hallway with opening on either side to the main lounge and the dining room/kitchen respectively. The lounge has a dual aspect with a bay window to the front making the room light. The focal point of the room is the central fireplace which is home to a cast iron wood burning stove. Original stripped wood flooring runs the length of the room. Across the hallway is the dining room, again with a front aspect bay window filling the room with light. This in turn opens into the kitchen with a selection of floor and wall units, solid fuel Rayburn and space and plumbing for white goods. A conservatory leads off from the dining room. Built of single block with single pain timber windows all around, this is now in need of replacement. From the kitchen a door then leads to the rear extension, a small hallway leading down to a pantry and a room that was once a village shop. Beyond this is a shower room with wash hand basin and WC.


Back in the hallway, a turned staircase rises to the first floor landing with a half landing on the way. The half landing gives access to a bedroom which has a good size balcony offering views across open farmland. There is also a room off with WC – scope to create an en-suite bathroom perhaps. Continuing up to the landing you will find the family bathroom with stripped wood floor and a suite including a paneled bath. The views from the bathroom window are lovely, stretching across the adjacent farmland. There are three double bedrooms, two front facing with the third facing the rear. The windows throughout the property are a mixture of wooden single glazed, some secondary glazing and UPVC double glazing.


To the rear of the property is the attached garage with double doors to the front, a personal door to the side and storage area to the rear. There is off road parking in front of the garage for two to three vehicles. To the front and side of the house are south facing lawned gardens bordered on one side by a small stream. There is a large garden shed and some established bushes and trees along the boundaries. Services to the property include mains water and electricity and septic tank drainage.


The quiet and pretty hamlet of Rumford lies just under 5 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 and of course Rick Steins esteemed Seafood restaurant. Within four 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 house 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 3 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.


To find Henley House, leave Padstow and follow the A389 for approximately 3 miles passing Trevisker Garden Centre along the way. Continue along the A389 as it becomes the B3274 and then turn right at signs for St Merryn Park. Follow this lane to the next t-junction and turn left following signs for Rumford and St Eval. Follow this lane all the way into Rumford and the property can be found halfway through the village on the right hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is PL27 7SS.
