Carne Lodge stands in a commanding and elevated position on Carne Hill and benefits from some superb landscape views. The local village of Trewoon is about a quarter of a mile and includes public house, village stores and post office and there is a primary school about a mile away at St Mewan. These amenities are all supplemented further by the town of St Austell, the centre of which is only about three miles from Carne Lodge. From St Austell there is a station on the London Paddington line.BRIEF DESCRIPTION
The approach to Carne Lodge is via a pair of impressive wrought iron vehicular gates which open to a brick paved driveway leading to car parking and turning areas near the bungalow and adjacent to the detached garage.
Carne Lodge was originally constructed by the current Vendor in about 2002 and is therefore available for the first time on the open market. It offers delightful accommodation which takes full advantage of far-reaching and distant views to the south over the Cornish countryside to the sea in the distance.
The existing accommodation currently extends to over 2,800 sq ft (including ground floor and attic roof space) and offers two large bedrooms, each with their own bathroom facilities and there is considerable potential to add a staircase and create first floor additional accommodation - subject to all necessary consents and approvals. Indeed, the original design of the bungalow was with an eye to extending the accommodation into the attic roof space at some stage in the future.
Outside are extensive gardens and grounds and, if desired, there is potential for a small paddock in the front of the property. Overall, Carne Lodge extends to about 1.30 acres.THE BUNGALOW
