Situated in a rural farm hamlet the property is a Grade II listed, three bedroomed barn conversion. With the additional benefits of two separate guest cottages and enjoying plentiful grounds, it offers the prospective purchaser the opportunity to acquire a peaceful family home whilst still being within easy reach of the amenities that Falmouth has to offer.
Accessed along a shared driveway, upon entering the home through the wooden front door set within a granite storm porch you are immediately struck by the sense of space afforded. An entrance hallway opens into the generous kitchen-diner, with triple aspect windows and south-facing rooflights bathing the room with light. Having been installed by the current owners, the shaker-style kitchen provides a range of wall and base units underneath a quartz worktop, with an undermounted stainless steel sink, and plumbing for an automatic dishwasher. An island unit provides additional workspace with a granite top. A gas-fired range cooker sits within the original fireplace and provides a focal point for the kitchen. Alongside this is space for a large dining table making this a fantastic entertaining room. The owners have obtained planning permission to extend westwards off this room to create a further reception room.
Retaining the character feel of the barn, a ledge-and-brace door leads through to the double height sitting room. A half landing provides access to the first floor accommodation, whilst two steps lead down to the main rooms. With exposed granite quoins, the room enjoys light from the glazed door to the rear courtyard garden as well as windows at both ground and first floor level. A wood-burning stove sits on a large granite hearth providing a cosy feature. Passing underneath the staircase into the inner hallway with slate tiled floor you first come to a utility room with belfast sink, laminate worktop and ample shelving. There is plumbing for a washing machine, and space for a tumble dryer. The central heating boiler sits on a granite plinth adjacent to the wooden stable door.
At the head of the corridor is the master bedroom suite. With wood flooring and a mezzanine dressing area with built in storage cupboards, it again enjoys the double-height vaulted ceiling found elsewhere in the property. A glazed timber door with sidelights and toplights provides access to the rear garden. A recently redecorated four piece en-suite bathroom with wainscotting is found below the mezzanine. The third bedroom, with a stable door to the rear garden and an en-suite shower-room with basin and WC completes the ground floor accommodation.
Rising from the main sitting room the wooden staircase gives a great sense of the space as you enter the second bedroom, which could serve equally well as the master suite. Exposed timber roof trusses and a floor-level window provide a tactility and connection with the building. Off the landing is a family bathroom, with bath, WC, basin and shower cubicle, with a skylight to the rear.
Willow Cottage was constructed in 2018 and provides a smart self-contained guest annexe. The living accommodation is open-plan with a well-designed fitted kitchen with integrated electric oven, gas hob and fridge-freezer. A contemporary free-standing wood-burning stove sits on a glass hearth providing a touch of luxury. The double bedroom enjoys a wonderful bathroom with claw-foot bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and basin. Double doors lead from the living area to the private garden.
Cuddle Cabin is located at the far side of the paddock via a gravel pathway lined with fruit trees. Providing further useful accommodation, an open-plan living space with wood-burning stove and a fitted kitchen with electric oven and hob as well as integrated fridge leads through to the shower room with WC and basin. The double bedroom enjoys large floor-to-ceiling windows providing fantastic views across the field, and has it's own dressing area.

With a sink, counter, barbecue and pizza oven, and enjoying afternoon and evening sun, it is the ideal entertaining space. A lawned courtyard garden at the rear is accessed from the ground floor bedrooms and sitting room. The paddock provides the opportunity for the purchaser to enjoy a more rural way of life; the owner currently keeps chickens and pigs.
