Norton Crest is individually situated in a pleasant rural position about 2 miles to the north of the old county town of Bodmin. Bodmin offers a comprehensive range of shopping, banking, supermarket, schooling facilities and amenities, and Bodmin Parkway railway station on the London Paddington line is about 5 miles to the south-east.
There are pleasant walks in the area at Lanhydrock, Cardinham Woods and along the River Camel Valley where there is also the Camel Trail cycle path. Norton Crest is well positioned to access both the north and south coasts and affords good road links given its proximity about a mile from the A30(T).DESCRIPTION
Norton Crest presents a spacious rural bungalow to the open market which extends to some 2,174 sq ft (GEA). It was originally built in the early 1990s and is the subject of an Agricultural Occupancy Condition. The bungalow stands within its own large garden of about 0.44 of an acre adjacent to fields and enjoys some good views to the south-west.
The entrance opens to an expansive tarmac car parking and turning area beside the bungalow and integral garage. The entrance to the accommodation is via an architecturally pleasing Enclosed Entrance Porch with slate "turret" roof which opens to a Reception Hall from which there are doors off to most rooms.
There is a fine Living Room with bay window enjoying the views and stone fireplace with inset wood-burner. From the Living Room there are doors off to a spacious Conservatory, with flowerpot shelving and door to outside, and a Dining Room with stone fireplace (currently sealed), pine ceiling and return door to the Reception Hall.
The Kitchen/Breakfast Room also has a bay window and presents a range of base and eye level matching units with worktops and incorporates a sink unit, electric hob, built-in electric cooker and an oil-fired Rayburn which heats one radiator and the domestic hot water. Off the Kitchen is an Office (which could potentially be used as a fourth Bedroom if desired) and a Utility Room with base level units, sink unit and door through to the Integral Garage.
In addition, there is a walk-in Laundry Room with cupboard and hot water cylinder and off the Hall are three good Double Bedrooms - all with spacious fitted wardrobes and washbasins. Finally, there is a Bathroom with panelled bath, separate shower cubicle, wc, washbasin and heated towel rail.THE GARDENS
