Just inland from the North Cornwall coast is this handsome and substantial Grade II Listed 7 bedroom detached house, set within circa 10 acres of delightful grounds, including two 1 bed holiday cottages, an outdoor heated swimming pool and various outbuildings. This stylish yet tasteful house has been thoroughly renovated in recent years and is now presented to an excellent standard throughout. The property also benefits from planning consent for the construction of two sizeable detached houses within the grounds, which may offer immense potential for a variety of other uses.
The property is set within a small and picturesque village that is just inland from the magnificent beaches and lifestyle of the North Cornwall coast, enjoying excellent access to communications as the A30 and A39 trunk roads are both just a few minutes drive away and the Cornwall Airport is also incredibly convenient, making the location and property an ideal choice for someone who regularly travels around or out of the county or those who are wanting to be convenient for guests.
During their ownership, our clients also operated the property part-time as a luxury holiday let and wedding venue, due to its ability to cater for large family groups from its flexible accommodation and large grounds.
Set down its own a private driveway is this very attractive, southerly facing, former farmhouse. In more recent years the property has been the subject of an extensive and tasteful renovation by our clients and it now provides flexible and spacious accommodation of circa 3300 sqft, that includes the option of a 2 bedroom integral annexe.
The central room of the house is a stunning family/dining room comprising several attractive period features. These include a large southerly facing bay window that overlooks the front walled gardens, a stone fireplace with wood-burner in situ, beamed ceiling and granite flagstone floor. Adjacent to the dining room, at the western end of the house, is the delightful dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room. This stunning family sized room has a feature Aga at its heart within a large fireplace and there are also some lovely views to the rear, looking over the westerly gardens and across the adjoining open countryside beyond.
The sitting room is adjacent to the dining room, on the opposite side of the entrance hall and this also looks out onto and enjoys access to the southerly front gardens, via French doors. The room features stripped wooden floorboards and a granite fireplace with wood burner in situ. At the easterly end of of the house is a more cosy snug/second sitting room, featuring a wood burning stove and French doors to the front gardens. This room could potentially become part of an integral annexe as it has a staircase leading up to 2 bedrooms above and there is an adjoining second kitchen/utility room. The ground floor is completed by a family bathroom and the laundry room.
The first floor has 7 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is en-suite and there is a family bathroom and shower room. Please see the floor plans for the layout and positions.
A pair of semi-detached self-contained cottages are positioned and orientated away from the main house, within the northerly area of the grounds. These attractive split level residences each provide stylish one bedroom holiday accommodation that includes a kitchen, bedroom/living area area and bathroom. They sit within a large area of lawned gardens and they are accesses via their own section of driveway, that creates further separation from the main residence.
Circa 10 acres in total, the gardens and grounds enclose the house and create a wonderful senses of privacy. The attractive partially walled southerly gardens are well maintained and are mostly laid to large areas of lawn. At the western end of the garden is an old cider press that is now the location of a hot tub. Beyond is an enclosed area that houses the heated swimming pool. Surrounding the pool are areas of terracing and there is a timber summer/pool house, which all combine to create a superb area for outdoor entertaining.
The main areas of land are to the west and north-west of the main house, comprising of paddocks, a large feature pond and woodland with a stream border. On the eastern boundary, beyond the driveway are two enclosed small paddocks. To the north of this area are where the two new houses are proposed to be built.
The additional outbuildings include a timber built former stable, that is now used as an enclosed games room and there is a detached workshop that may have potential for conversion, subject to requisite consents.
Within the land, on the extreme northern side of the grounds, is planning permission for two large detached houses, where a complex of large stone barns once stood. The two buildings will extend to in excess of circa 4,000 sqft each. Conditional Planning Consent was granted on 22nd October 2021 under reference PA21/08588 for the replacement of the two existing holiday cottages with two detached dwellings and garaging. If the additional residential accommodation was not be required, there may be the opportunity for a purchaser to amend the planning consent to another completely different use, such as stabling for horses, extensive garaging etc, all subject to any requisite consents.
