This property is coming to the market for the first time in more than 3 decades and is situated in a delightful location with no near neighbours making it extremely private an yet very accessible to all the necessary day to day amenities. Arrival at the property is via a private track with first glance to the right of the house capturing the initial look at Stithians Reservoir which sets the scene for more to come with the water wrapping around the majority of the land which extends to approx. 55 acres in total.
The property is a detached house with flexible accommodation which is currently set up as a three bedroom home with four reception rooms with the middle part of the property believed to date back in excess of 100 years. The front door leads to an inner hallway that in turn leads to the main hallway of the house. Initially the wide hallway has a useful snug area on the left which is a ideal read for quiet working area for an office or reading space. The three double bedrooms are all off the hall on the left with master bedroom measuring an impressive 20 feet in length.
The original external stone wall runs the length of the hall and now leads into the sitting room. This central part of the property is filled with an abundance of character with exposed stone walls, inglenook fireplace with a traditional Cornish wood burning stove as the focal point of the room at one end and a further open fireplace at the opposite end. This fabulous room has a high vaulted ceiling and stairs leading to a mezzanine area which is unique feature not found in many properties and somewhat of a delightful space to use to take advantage of wonderful views over your land to the calm waters of Stithians Reservoir.
Off the sitting room is the sun room which links to the kitchen breakfast room that's very light and airy with its dual aspect. Completing the accommodation is the family bathroom and utility room with external door. In general, although the house needs updating it has amazing potential with its history and character.
Externally there are various outbuildings which are former stores/stables and the like. These stone buildings could be converted to achieve further accommodation for the main house or separate for a multitude of uses (subject to permissions). Adjacent to the house is a very impressive timber barn measuring the best part of 90 x 40 feet which is perfect storage of large machinery, campervans, boats etc. The land extends to approximately 55 acres of productive agricultural land in a mixture of sized fields separated mainly by Cornish stone walls. A further opportunity exists with derelict out buildings on the far side of the land from the main house. These outbuildings are accessed by a totally separate lane to the main house and don't have any near neighbours making it certainly an interesting opportunity should planning be granted to residential dwellings.
