Once the original farmhouse for the surrounding land this granite farmhouse sits in a very special position on the 'Wild Coast' of Cornwall. This delightful farmhouse is full of original character and is in a private position approx. a quarter of a mile off the road making this a peaceful location. Situated roughly equidistant between the village of Zennor and the renowned Gurnards Head public house the property is perfect for a permanent home or for those wishing to have the perfect getaway holiday home to enjoy the quiet life yet only 5 miles from Cornwall's premier town of St Ives. The property is surrounded by miles of costal path walks along what is widely agreed as the most dramatic coastline in the county and arguably the UK. This well preserved landscape is sparsely scattered with historical property which makes a proposition such as this a rare opportunity.
We believe the main house is dates back to 1860 and is currently a three bedroom detached property. Adjacent to the main house is a granite studio with a former stable below. The ground floor accommodation his light and airy with character features. The sitting room is of particular note on the ground floor with a substantial granite inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove which makes a very warm room on those stormy winter nights. Further to the ground floor is the kitchen to the front elevation of the property looking towards the sea and dining room adjoining. There is a useful utility housing the oil fired boiler and downstairs WC and the rear of the property has a much used boot room which is advantageous for those wet days after walks possibly with a favoured pet.
Rising to the first floor is three bedrooms and family bathroom. The current owners, many years ago, changed the layout from two bedrooms and two bathrooms to the current three bedrooms and family bathroom. All three bedrooms have wonderful views of either vast countryside and or beautiful sea views which make the most magnificent views to wake up to in the morning. Adjacent to the main house is a granite building which of which the first floor was converted some 20 years ago to make a studio bedroom and shower room for further accommodation for the family. There is huge potential to incorporate the ground floor (former stables) into the studio to make an exquisite one bedroom holiday let or guest lodgings (subject to permissions).
Externally there is parking for the main house and separate parking for the detached studio which is ideal for buyers wishing to use the studio as additional income with guests having private parking. The rear of the property has a quaint garden that is sheltered from the prevailing winds and totally private making this an impeccable place for alfresco dining for entertaining.
The village of Zennor is located about 5 miles west of St Ives. Located on the wild and rugged north coast and backing onto the West Cornwall moors this is a place that can feel far removed from modern life. It is a pretty little village with a pub, the Tinner's Arms and one of Cornwall's many and most famous legends, The Mermaid of Zennor, can be seen carved in the ancient Oak pew within the Church. The coast around Zennor is spectacular and is the perfect example of the West Cornish coast.
Rugged granite cliffs stand firm against the relentless might of the Atlantic Ocean. A popular walk is from the village centre to Zennor Head around a mile along the coast. From here there are views up and down the coast to Gurnard's Head with the culinary famous public house by the same name and out over the treacherous Pendour Cove, home of The legendary Mermaid.
