Located at the end of a private drive and set within circa 4 acres of delightful grounds, an exceptional 5 bedroom modern eco barn conversion offering incredibly flexible accommodation and enjoying delightful views across rolling countryside.
This one-off property was created in 2017 from the conversion of a former stone barn, combined with a superb two storey extension and a striking glazed contemporary link. The overall layout has been cleverly designed to allow for it to be resided in as a straightforward single family sized residence or if required, part of the ground floor can be separated off to provide a very spacious and fully self contained annexe. This could potentially be used as accommodation for a dependant relative, guest accommodation or letting to either full time or holiday tenants.
Its tucked away location is exceptionally peaceful, whilst still being easily accessible to all of its beautiful surroundings, including being just a little under 2 miles from Padstow and just minutes from the beaches of the magnificent nearby Seven Bays.
The barn is located in an exceptionally peaceful and tucked away semi rural setting, that is easily accessible to all within its beautiful surrounding areas, including being just a little under 2 miles from Padstow and approximately 4.5 miles from Wadebridge. There are numerous beautiful beaches within easy reach, including the magnificent Seven Bays, that are located on the stretch of coastline immediately to the south of the Camel Estuary and Padstow; these include the bays of Trevone, Harlyn, Mother Ivey’s, Booby’s, Constantine, Treyarnon and Porthcothan.
The property benefits from several eco friendly/sustainable design features including solar PV panels, ground source heat pump heating and there is permission and established infrastructure for a wind turbine. The services to the property include a private water supply and private drainage and so overall, it comes close to being able to be run off grid. The fixed feed-in tariff for the wind turbine was agreed several years ago, during a time when the monetary rates were considerably higher than they are today and so there is the potential/ability to immediately earn a significant tax free income for several years to come, from the erection of a turbine.
Set just minutes from the spectacular North Cornwall coast, the Camel Estuary and Padstow, the property is set in beautiful rolling countryside, just outside of the village of Little Petherick. The Seven Bays offer exceptional surfing beaches and the harbourside town of Padstow provides world class dining and hospitality from celebrity and Michelin starred chefs such as Rick Stein, Paul Ainsworth. The nearby market town of Wadebridge is also a highly regarded town due to its many excellent boutique shops, schooling and sporting facilities. For the golfing enthusiast there are championship level courses on opposite sides of the Camel Estuary, the nearest being Trevose and St Enodoc at Rock. The magnificent Camel Estuary meanders its way down to Padstow and along its banks is the the highly popular Camel Trail foot and cycle path, linking Padstow to Wadebridge and beyond up the Camel valley to Nanstallon and eventually on to Bodmin.
There are numerous public footpaths nearby providing excellent opportunities for walking, including the Saints Way path that leads from Padstow on the north coast, across the entirety of mid Cornwall, eventually leading to Fowey on the opposite coast.
Accessed from the public highway that initially opens into and leads briefly through the easterly corner of the land, through a five bar gate and on to the driveway, which then passes the sizeable detached double garage and descends gently through the lawned front gardens on its route to the property. The driveway culminates at a large parking area immediately in front of the barn, that provides parking for numerous cars. The land surrounds on three sides, gently sloping in a south westerly direction and providing the option for a variety of uses. It also provides protection of the delightful south westerly outlook and views. The location of the turbine would be on the south easterly side of the land, where it would have the most minimal impact on the property and its outlook. The rear gardens are laid to lawn and seamlessly lead out in to the fields below. On the southerly side of the barn, immediately accessed from the Family Room, is a delightful sheltered courtyard style garden area that provides the perfect space for outdoor entertaining. Adjacent to the courtyard garden is a large timber shed in the grounds that contains the ground source heat pump heat exchanger, the hot water tanks and the filtration for the private water supply.
