Room to move

There’s something to be said for having space where we live.


After months of being unable to leave our homes this year, we’re sure that many people will agree. Not only does it allow for a healthier lifestyle at home, one in which everybody can find their own quiet corner to relax and reflect, it also gives those of us working from home ample space to do so without distraction. And this is a trend that’s on the rise, with employers around the UK seeing the benefits of a remote workforce.



As an example, let’s take a look at Gwel an Gorwel – currently on the market with Philip Martin, with no chain and a guide price of £695,000. A very large detached family home, this stunning property has recently been converted from a former agricultural building, on the outskirts of Sticker village near St Austell. Inside, as well as a huge open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room, there are a total of four bedrooms (five if you include the self-contained annexe), including a fabulous master suite with its own dressing room. You’ll also find a study, ideal for working from home, and even a cinema room, perfect for movie nights on those blustery Cornish winter evenings. Even on the coldest nights, you’ll be blissfully unaware of the weather thanks to underfloor heating and a delightful, cleverly positioned woodburner on the ground floor.

Outside, the gardens feel wonderfully private and enclosed. To the rear you’ll find a very useful storage shed, ideal for gardening equipment, as well as two static caravans, which are due to be removed. This will create a considerable space and thereby open up a world of possibilities for anybody interested in further development, be that with a studio, office, or even another dwelling (subject to consent).

To put it simply, with so much and more to offer, all in just under an acre, it’s rare to find a property quite as spacious, versatile and contemporary as this one. If you’re one of countless buyers in search of more space after this year’s lockdowns, then really, you need to see Gwel an Gorwel.
