Grade II Listed, 16th Century, classic and extremely picturesque detached, south facing former farmhouse, located on a settlement mentioned in the Domesday book. The farmhouse is prominently set in a very private location, within the peaceful and tucked away historic hamlet of Lanow, in St Kew, just a short distance inland from the magnificent North Cornwall coast. The house sits within thoughtfully designed landscaped gardens and grounds which are enhanced by planting schemes which epitomise an English country garden enjoying pleasant southerly aspects and views across the neighbouring open countryside.
The property has a lovely, relaxed feel and has been sensitively renovated by our client with exceptional attention to detail at every turn, from the beautiful slate floors to the exposed oak beams throughout, with good ceiling heights to the ground floor and vaulted ceilings on the first floor. Many of the original character features have been retained and are complimented with the addition of more modern elements that were added during the renovation works. Please see the floor plans to view the layout and sizes of the accommodation.
The main entrance to the property is from the lane via double gates that open into a large, gravelled parking area, which is edged by a low stone wall with planted borders and mature hedging. A short flight of steps leads up to the main south facing lawned garden area and a stone path winds towards the front entrance and the original granite arched front door. To the front of the house is a full width patio framed with planted borders, providing a lovely spot to enjoy the sun all day. To the east of the gardens is a mature hedged boundary providing good levels of privacy. To the south side is a secluded, enclosed patio, which enjoys the south and westerly light, again making it a lovely sun trap and a great spot for BBQ’s, entertaining or just enjoying the peace and quiet and the far reaching rural views. On the westerly side of the house is a feature pond and a further small area of lawn. At the rear of the property is a large timber-built Home Office / Studio / Workshop building, divided into two areas, which our client has used for various purposes including working from home. It contains electricity, water, telephone line, kitchen units and a sink. A small decking area to the front of the building overlooks the pond and the side lawned area. There is a further small outbuilding to the rear and at the side of the property is a further parking space and a side entrance door that opens into the utility room.
Set within beautiful rolling countryside, the hamlet of Lanow is located within the highly sought-after parish of St Kew, just a short distance from St Kew Churchtown, where the renowned St Kew Inn and the classical village church are located.
The property is just minutes from the spectacular North Cornwall coast, with the picture perfect fishing village of Port Isaac being the closest and the nearest beach being the surfing paradise of Polzeath. The highly desirable market town of Wadebridge is just 4 miles distance from The Long House, offering an excellent range of shops, schooling and sporting facilities. The Camel River meanders itsway through Wadebridge becoming the Camel Estuary as it moves downstream towards the spectacular mouth of the estuary at Rock and Padstow.The Camel Trail foot and cycle path is accessible at Wadebridge, which runs along the banks of the estuary, leading to the harbour town of Padstow.
The North Cornwall area is exceptionally well served by many delightful pubs and restaurants, with the St Kew Inn a relatively short walk from Lanow. For the foodie, Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth have restaurants at Padstow and Nathan Outlaw maintains his Michelin Starred restaurant in Port Isaac
