A superbly presented & substantial 6 bedroom/6 en-suite family residence with versatile living accommodation
The Whitehouse is a wonderful family home that sits prominently within the pretty village of St Issey, equidistant from both the picturesque harbour town of Padstow and the bustling market town of Wadebridge, with its comprehensive range of shopping facilities. The property amasses over 3000 square feet of exceedingly versatile and deceptively spacious accommodation comprising of five reception rooms, a kitchen/diner and six double bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms. Within the grounds sits a lovely detached two double bedroom bungalow with almost 600 square feet of pristine accommodation, a detached double garage with storage above and ample parking and turning space for approximately 10 vehicles.
The current vendors moved into The Whitehouse in July 2002 and immediately set about renovating the property including the addition of new roofs, windows, plumbing and electrics which left them with five fabulous reception rooms and six en-suite double bedrooms. As an up and running Bed and Breakfast, the property is currently configured with separate owners accommodation alongside the kitchen/dining room, study, lounge and garden room. A second lounge and breakfast room accompany the five remaining first floor en-suite double bedrooms, all beautifully presented and maintained. Three face the front of the property and two bedrooms face the rear each with views across the countryside towards the sea. Incidentally, there is planning permission to create another bedroom and en-suite above the garden room, to include a veranda/balcony that could easily be self-contained. Outside, the garden runs around the side and across the rear of the property with an interesting combination of courtyard areas and lawn, interspersed with an array of established shrubs and small trees. Immediately to the rear is open countryside with views to the ocean beyond.
The Lodge, formally the village shop, is a light and airy, two bedroom detached bungalow that sits adjacent to The Whitehouse. The property has a fresh and crisp open plan living space comprising the kitchen, lounge and dining room with French doors to the side opening out onto a private patio area and a small low maintenance area of lawn. There are two lovely double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and also a second shower room. Set at the rear of the graveled drive is the detached double garage with its’ electric up and over door and large amount of storage space above. Services to the properties include mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.
The Whitehouse is simply a fantastic opportunity to purchase a unique property of superb quality and amazing attention to detail while offering over 3,500 square foot of income generating accommodation with a variety of possible uses and configurations. The accommodation is light, bright and wonderfully presented throughout and, as an up and running bed and breakfast business, can continue as such. Equally, the property is suitable as a very comfortable family home with potential for holiday letting or with accommodation for a dependent relative. We at Jackie Stanley recommend an internal viewing to appreciate the size, flexibility and quality of the accommodation on offer.
