This property has been run as a very successful holiday letting business in recent years. All three properties are very unique with their own individual character and are presented to a wonderful standard. Formally a farm complex, the granite outbuildings have been converted for two further units accompanying the main house. There has been great thought put into the design of all the properties when converting both internally and externally. Each property has its own distinct feel and they all have private garden space with outdoor dining areas. The total plot measures approximately 1 acre.
The Farmhouse; A delightful four bedroom property with 3 bedrooms on the first floor, family bathroom and a fourth bedroom on the ground floor with its own bathroom adjacent to the bedroom. The ground floor has a sizable sitting room measuring approx. 29’ in length with a wood burning stove at one end. The focal point of this room is a beautiful atrium in the ceiling with stain glass which is a real feature and provides a feeling of space in the room. The kitchen is also of good proportions with a range of fitted wall and floor mounted units with plentiful amounts of storage, timber work tops and oil fired Rayburn which compliments the units nicely.
The Old Dairy; The second letting property is a two bedroom single storey former dairy with sitting room, well appointed kitchen / dining room close to 20’ in length and an external door to its private garden. Bedroom one has an ensuite bathroom and the second bedroom is serviced by a separate shower room.
The Barn; The third cottage is a barn conversion which is very elegant and clever in its design. The Barn is entered through bi-fold doors into a spacious kitchen /dining room with a feature of a central island unit and further useful worktop and storage space in the kitchen. The current owners have an 8 seat dining table in this room which could easily accommodate a lager table if needed. Flowing off the kitchen /diner is the sitting room with wood burning stove. French doors at the end of the sitting room lead onto another private patio and decking area which is ideal for alfresco dining. Rising to the first floor is a luxurious bedroom suite which is light and airy. The vaulted ceiling with exposed beams add real character to the room and a clever partition wall separates the bedroom area from a private seating area currently used as a casual TV room and leading on to the ensuite shower room which in itself is ergonomic in its design.
Externally there is a very handy workshop with a games room above for guests. This is also a granite building and if required could be easily converted (subject to permissions) to make a further letting unit. As mentioned each property has its own separate garden and outdoor seating area which does make a pleasant guest experience. To the rear of the main house is a canopied area which is a perfect place for BBQ’s to either escape the sun on summers days or the unexpected shower. The success of the holiday letting business in recent years is added to with income from the owned solar panels which we are told produce an approx. £2000 net return per year from the feed in tariff. In all an excellent income producing property in one of Cornwall’s exquisite areas and only a few hundred metres from the coast.
