Presented to an impeccable standard throughout, Howard House provides spacious and versatile accommodation over three floors located on the fringes of St Austell in a semi rural setting enjoying the benefit of tranquil and private grounds coupled with an acre paddock suitable for those buyers wishing for the convenience of living so close to a major town yet having a rural home setting. The first impressions as you enter the jet black electronic gates driving towards Howard House are quite something. The manicured lawn runs either side of the gravel chipped driveway focuses the eye perfectly to the impressive external look of this Georgian manor house, with later additions.
The property is entered via a composite door leading to a generous entrance hallway which provides access to all of the ground floor accommodation. At the end of the hallway is a returning staircase which leads to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation on the first floor. The first two reception rooms are located either side of the entrance hallway and are similar in size. Our clients currently use one as a home office and the other as a gym. These receptions rooms would suit any buyer wishing to work from home or simply to have additional space for rooms such as a Snug, Library or Play room.
The main reception room spans the full width of the property and is located at the southern end of the property therefore enjoying ample amounts of natural sunlight all day long. This impressive and spacious room enjoys a central focal point of a large open fireplace with inset wood burning stove with oak lintel over. French doors lead to the outside from the dining area of this room providing additional scope and the perfect location to add an orangery or garden room if required.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is an impressive shower room completed in high quality sanitary ware together with a separate utility room and boiler room. The utility room is located at the rear of the property and has a wide range of fitted base and wall mounted units inset sink and drainer, integrated washing machine and pull out cupboards. Within the utility room a rear courtesy door leads to the rear garden and sun terrace. The boiler room is located beyond the utility room. At first floor level there are five double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom suite provides en suite bathroom facilities together with generous dressing areas. The en suite has been tiled with Italian Marble and white high quality sanitary ware.
Two of the five bedrooms provide a dressing area with a staircase leading to the bedroom area above.

The family bathroom is fitted in a white Villeroy & Boch suite and has been beautifully finished and provides a bath and separate bespoke shower cubicle. Externally, the formal gardens are located mainly to the front of the property and are spread across two levels. The lawns are extremely flat and perfect for family living.

There is a barn within the grounds that the current vendors have sought planning permission on to convert into a one bedroom annexe. Please contact the office for plans.

This paddock is stock fenced at all sides and would suit a buyer looking to house some livestock or simply use as additional garden space for the family. There is a further parcel of land located behind the house which offers additional potential should any buyer wish to seek permission for another residence, garage block or simply additional parking.
