Property Description

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Location, location location… This stunning Grade II listed cottage occupies arguably one of the towns finest waterside locations on the popular Bude Canal, yet is extremely private despite being within walking distance of Summerleaze beach, the Wharf, town centre and all its amenities. This charming cottage offers spacious and versatile accommodation not to mention circa 2 acres of beautifully maintained gardens and approximately 750ft of direct water frontage with mooring.

The internal accommodation comprises: sitting room with attractive flagstone flooring and woodburner, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, WC, utility room and store/boot room; whilst on the first floor there are four generous bedrooms and two bathrooms served with two staircases; virtually all rooms benefit from views over the canal and adjacent nature reserve. The accommodation could easily be arranged as two independent two bedroom cottages, if desired, and would make a stunning second home or superb main residence.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS Casting House Cottage is approached via a private and incredibly secure residents only driveway, with Casting House Cottage being the last of the properties, offering ultimate privacy and seclusion. Upon reaching Casting House Cottage an attractive pair of five bar gates open onto a private driveway laid with natural Cornish stone paving and offers off-road parking for a number of vehicles. The gardens and grounds then continue to extend off to the side of the property, following the natural shape of the canal and offering approximately 750 feet of direct water frontage with mooring. It is believed that the entire grounds extend in the region of two acres. The more formal garden, being close to the property, provides various flower beds, terraced lawns, feature patio and summerhouse, all of which again enjoy those stunning views over the canal and adjoining nature reserve. The gardens host an extensive variety of mature trees, shrubs and seasonal planting, thus providing an ever changing and interesting garden in which to enjoy. The gardens are relatively easy to manage, with most of the areas simply being cut with single track paths and wild flower borders either side. Paths then lead down to two incredibly private and enchanting waterfront areas, one of which is totally screened by the natural reeds of the canal, the other with direct views over the water.
