Three immaculate converted barns with 6 acres, located at the end a long driveway, accessed via a private gated entrance. This superb property enjoys a truly idyllic setting within the picturesque Cardinham Valley, immediately adjacent to circa 600 acres of unspoilt Forestry Commission woodland, known as Cardinham Woods.
This stunning collection of stone built barns is arranged around a delightful south facing courtyard and a large lawned area, looking out across the southerly garden towards the woodland and paddocks beyond. The properties are arranged as three separate residences, the largest being fully residential, two being for holiday use only and a fourth detached barn is a large games room / entertainment barn. Each has been skilfully converted with great attention to detail and particular precision paid to retaining the look and feel of the original period exteriors and features of the buildings. However, set foot inside and the interiors are a stunning yet contrasting style of clean contemporary finishes and modern open plan layouts, that combine with luxurious fittings and high quality features, to create a standard of accommodation that is very rarely seen in Cornwall.
Our clients have had the majority of the works carried out and their vision and design was to create an exclusive and luxurious holiday rental property, capable of housing large parties of people or multi generations of a family, but also with the option and flexibility for it to make a very comfortable principal home with income created from the two smaller barns, or the option for each part to be let separately.
The properties have been a very successful venture and they are let via the luxury self-catering company, Perfect Stays, who kindly supplied us with their photographs for our marketing. There is more information about the property and an excellent video available on their website, under the title Cardinham Barns, showing more of its stunning interior and the gardens and ground
