Exceptional Grade II Listed Georgian house with detached cottage and delightful gardens and grounds of approximately 3 acres, all set within the highly sought after parish of St Kew.
Constructed circa 1807, Hendra is an incredibly handsome Grade II Listed former farmhouse that is set in picturesque yet easily accessible countryside location between the North Cornwall coast and the town of Wadebridge. The property has been the subject of a large scale programme of renovation and modernisation in recent years, that has created a house of a standard that is very rarely seen and offers the ideal combination of many excellent modern creature comforts, yet in a beautiful Listed building. The property enjoys numerous stunning period features too that includes inglenook fireplaces, woodburner, high ceilings with exposed timbers and flagstone slate flooring to name just a few. As well as having excellent family sized accommodation, overall, it also offers considerable flexibility as it provides the current owners with a good income from the holiday letting of the very attractive detached two bedroom holiday cottage (Little Hendra) located within the grounds and a spacious annexe (Pippins). Pippins can be configured as a self-contained annexe or incorporated into the main house without changing the layout or structure of the house.
Hendra enjoys a great flow to the rooms, with the option of up to five reception rooms, including the sunroom, on the ground floor (2 being used for the annexe). The superb farmhouse kitchen breakfast room is at the heart of the house and is semi open plan to the adjacent dining room. The kitchen is fitted with an attractive range of units with a cream four oven electric Aga being the centrepiece and large flagstone slate flooring and granite worktops completing the look and feel of quality. There are 4 bedrooms on the first floor, 3 of which are en suite and also a large family bathroom. On the second floor is a further en suite bedroom with an interlinking room. Both the house and cottage have the benefit of air source heating providing under floor heating to the ground floor of both. Within the grounds, there are photovoltaic panels generating an element of electricity for the property with any excess fed back in to the National Grid. This also provides a useful tax free income.
Outside, the main garden to the house is a very private and sizeable area set to the front, enjoying a south to south westerly aspect that catches the afternoon and evening sunshine. This is arranged as a large level lawn, bordered by attractive wide gravelled pathways and raised beds of plants, shrubs and mature trees. Little Hendra holiday cottage with private garden is located on the opposite side of the entrance drive, adjacent to the sizeable grassed paddock where the PV panels are located. There is a large parking area in front of the detached double garage with workshop, which offers great potential for other uses. To the rear of the garage is a detached modern block built outbuilding that is currently used as a gym. Adjacent to Little Hendra is a further single storey traditional stone built open barn.
Set in beautiful rolling countryside within the highly sought-after parish of St Kew, this idyllic hamlet is just a short distance from St Kew Churchtown, where the renowned St Kew Inn and picturesque village church are located. Hendra Lane leads directly to St Endellion church, internationally renowned for its music festivals. Hendra is just minutes from the spectacular North Cornwall coast, with the picture perfect fishing village of Port Isaac close by and the nearest beach being the surfing paradise of Polzeath. The highly desirable nearby market town of Wadebridge offers an excellent range of shops, schooling and sporting facilities. The Camel River meanders its way through Wadebridge becoming the spectacular Camel Estuary as it moves downstream towards Rock and Padstow. Along the banks of the estuary, runs the popular Camel Trail foot and cycle path linking Wadebridge to the harbour town of Padstow.
This part of North Cornwall is exceptionally well served by many delightful pubs and restaurants, with the St Kew Inn just 2 miles away.
