The character bungalow is surrounded by lovely unusual and matured gardens and the grounds covering almost an acre have been split into twelve garden rooms/areas which all house a variety of wild life and beautiful birds that have been encouraged into them for nearly ten years. Each area has its own micro climate as the valley in which the property sits also has its own micro climate and when the weather is inclement outside the valley, it is very calm and sheltered within it. The grounds are all protected and shielded by conifers giving privacy and shelter. There are hoses and water taps conveniently placed around the grounds. All the gardens house spring and summer bulbs. The three lawns and attractive gravel areas are easily maintained . All of the gardens are fenced and contain climbing plants and an abundance of various roses.
The gardens are on two main levels and the property adjacent to the lane houses wild hedges and some shrubs. The property sits in a beautifully quiet and picturesque location that is a preserved Green Belt area due to its heritage, wildlife and fauna history. Whilst this is so, the property is also only a short walk away from the village of St. Just with its good parking facilities, variety of shops, cafes, public houses, galleries and in the vendors opinion an excellent GP Practice. All the gardens contain climbing plants and an abundance of roses.
On the top level of the garden are three garden rooms. One houses soft fruit, vines and fruit trees including apples, nectarines and an olive tree. This area has steps down into a another lower area. The other top area is a suntrap where the current owner enjoys barbecues and the peaceful atmosphere and this area has steps down to the back door and the courtyard. The third top area is reached through an archway and predominately a winter and shade garden with lovely shrubs, trees and plants. In the middle sits an old cherry tree. This garden also houses a summerhouse, a compost heap and a storage area. This garden leads down some steps to the secret garden below. Again there are pastoral views to the right to St. Just church and beyond.
The driveway houses four cars and there are two entrances to the property - one with double gates to the long garden and then to the meadow and one gate leading to steps and pathway to the house. The driveway itself houses shrubs and climbing plants and a separate area for the wheelie bin and brown garden waste bin tucked underneath another cherry tree and a host of azalea and camellia trees that form a natural and abundant hedge of colourful shrubs and evergreens.
To the right of the house is an area ideal for a greenhouse and vegetable beds and the dining room window over looks this garden. One then wanders past the front door and through an arch to a delightful sitting area next to the house which is next to the conservatory door for easy access to the kitchen. The borders are full of climbing plants, trees, shrubs and flowers and this area has steps leading to the outbuildings and the lower gardens.
From this area and alongside the conservatory is a pathway for tubs and a wall where above one can view the winter garden and this is ideally sheltered for tree ferns and the like.
The property has a potting shed and a large workshop. It also has a storage outbuilding for tools and logs. In the long garden there is a substantial wooden stable, which benefits from its own electricity supply making it ideal for potters or painters and gives extra space for other creative pursuits. There are several storage and tidy away areas on the property.
There is a greenhouse at the entrance to the secret garden and at the end of the path there is a seating area and a natural waterfall that feeds into a stream leading to the wildlife area.
Along the pathway from this one enters the long garden which has a border of shrubs, roses, plants, climbers and several dry bedding and vegetable beds leading through to an archway and a rockery.
There are two gateways and arches from this area that lead into the wildlife meadow with its own stream and this also houses trees, shrubs, bulbs, a small pond, natural banks and borders and a wet border with grasses and marginal planting and a smaller stream with its own water-fall that crosses the lawn. This small meadow teems with wildlife and birdsong. The meadow also houses the compost bins. This area is ripe for keeping chickens, bees and the like and is ideal for those who are wishing to enjoy the good life.
