A picture perfect Grade II Listed detached 4 bedroom farmhouse set within large gardens, in an idyllic rural hamlet that is located within the highly sought after parish of Lanhydrock. The hamlet is made up of just 4 detached residences, 2 being former farmhouses and the others converted barns. No onward chain.
For sale for only second time since 1650, the property was formerly part of the renowned Lanhydrock Estate, who still own large areas of the surrounding farmland and countryside. The house enjoys a delightful setting, positioned within attractive and sizeable gardens and grounds that are mostly located to the rear of the house and includes a large area of level lawned paddock. There is parking for multiple cars and a large open fronted Dutch style barn provides space for the storage of vehicles, as well as having potential for other uses.
Then house is very comfortable and enjoys well balanced accommodation throughout. Entered via a picturesque pitched entrance door, the ground floor includes 2 good-sized reception rooms, with each having an impressive stone inglenook fireplace with wood burners in situ. Other appealing features of the rooms include beamed ceilings, window seats and a stunning combination of exposed stone, granite and slate floors.
The kitchen is located to the rear of the house, accessed via the dining room. This stunning space is where more traditional features of the house meet a slightly more contemporary style. White modern kitchen units with timber worktops over are complimented by large flagstone sized grey flooring tiles. These contrast perfectly with its impressive granite double fireplace that also contains a wood burner to one side. The kitchen also enjoys access out into the rear courtyard area from a rear porch. The courtyard provides an excellent space for outside dining and entertaining and, subject to all requisite consents, may offer space and potential for the further enlargement of the accommodation.
The first floor houses 4 excellent bedrooms, 3 of which look out over the attractive front gardens and they are serviced via a family bathroom also at the front. The largest bedroom is located to the rear of the house and this has an en suite bathroom.
The property is approached from the public highway along a private lane that also provides access to two of the other properties within the hamlet. A private entrance to the side of the house then leads to the rear of the house where there is a large parking and turning area and beyond on thge rear boundary are the two larger outbuildings. At the front of the house, also accessed from the lane, is a further parking area that is laid with granite chippings. A pathway then leads from this parking area through the front lawned gardens, to the front entrance door. At the rear of the house, adjacent to the courtyard are various single storey stone outbuildings that are currently used as a utility room, outside WC and a log store but they may offer potential for other uses.
