Approaching the gated entrance with walling either side, serving both this and the neighbouring property, step through the attractive wrought iron gate and a couple of steps to the left is the front lawn. This residential home sits in an elevated position, with views of the town and surrounding countryside in the distance and the historical Bodmin Steam Railway.
The attractive front garden is mainly laid to lawn with established shrubs and hedgerow to the borders providing complete privacy. The pathway, with a handy metal handrail, sweeps around to the far right where the storm porch and front door can be located. To the left of the door is a lovely spot to sit and soak up the sun, whilst surrounded by greenery, it really feels like you are in the countryside!

A glazed solid wooden door with glass panes either side provides light and access into the welcoming entrance hall, delightful and spacious with original wooden floorboards, picture and dado rails and where a grand staircase leads to the first floor with a handy storage cupboard beneath.
Immediately on the left is the sitting room, a wonderful space with original wooden flooring, picture rails and a lovely bay fronted window letting in plenty of natural light and views of the front garden. Taking centre stage is the fireplace, the perfect place to warm hands and gather around sipping your favourite tipple during those wintery months. The formal dining room is just next door and a super space for a large dining table and plenty of room for display cabinets with the same wooden flooring underfoot and natural light beaming through from the sash window overlooking the courtyard at the rear.
Returning to the entrance hall, a door to the rear opens into a breakfast room where a further open fireplace can be found, with full height built-in storage cupboards either side. Another light and airy space, and very versatile, lending itself to that of a snug, playroom or office if necessary.

A glazed window to the side overlooks the courtyard and there’s a Velux window above to allow natural light through and fresh air too. Complimentary tiling to the walls and floor tiles underfoot complete the kitchen and makes an easy clean.
Ahead lies the utility room, where there are a range of wall mounted cupboards providing further storage with a roll top work surface beneath providing space and plumbing for several appliances. A window to the rear and Velux window overhead allows light in and the tiled flooring continues into the downstairs cloakroom on the left. Features include a low-level WC and floating hand-wash basin, with a glazed window to the side.
Returning to the entrance hall and ascending the stairs to the first floor where there is a split-level landing featuring dado rails. To the rear is the family bathroom and ahead are steps up to the higher level where there are three double bedrooms.

Stepping up to the higher level, to the far right is the superb master bedroom with a bay fronted window overlooking the garden at the front and views of the town and beyond. An original fireplace makes a lovely feature and adds to the character.
Next door is bedroom two, also a fabulous double and featuring an original fireplace and picture rail too, and overlooks the rear garden from a sash window at the rear. This room also benefits from a hand-wash basin and easily offers the potential for an en-suite!
Straight ahead is bedroom three, which could easily accommodate a double bed and is currently fitted out with a range of open shelving with a sash window to the front, also enjoying similar views to that of the master bedroom of the town and beyond.
The staircase continues to the second floor where there is access to the loft and the remaining three bedrooms, all double in size. Bedroom four is a lovely light and airy room located on the right with sash windows and two small inbuilt cupboards, one of which houses the electric meter.
The sixth bedroom lies straight ahead and both rooms overlook the front garden and views of the town and beyond. Bedroom five is located at the rear with three Velux windows.

An open passage on the left runs along the side of the property to the gated access at the front, with polycarbonate roofing providing space for garden tools.
To the rear are cobbled steps leading to the upper tiered garden, which is in need of some cultivation, ideal for the green thumbed! This is a lovely green space of established trees and mature shrubs, with areas to take shade from direct sunlight, a hard-standing area for a shed and a few spots that would make lovely seating areas.
The single garage, providing off road parking for one vehicle, is situated at the front of the property to the left of the shared gated entrance on street level, and is accessible via and up and over door.
Harleigh Road is situated within easy reach of Bodmin town centre, having recently undergone a huge transformation into a cycle hub, offering many shopping, banking, schooling and recreational facilities. Perfectly located to access the many renowned sandy beaches and historic coastal towns such as Padstow, Fowey, Charlestown and Port Isaac with the Camel Trail passing through the town and following the route of the old railway into Wadebridge and beyond to Padstow.
To the east of the town is Bodmin Moor designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, popular with cyclists, walkers and nature lovers. To the outskirts is the railway station providing direct links to London Paddington, the south East and a variety of other destinations. Enviable positioning between the North and South coats of Cornwall and with the A30 right on your doorstep, commuting in and out of the county is a breeze!
