A unique opportunity to purchase a Grade II listed range of farm buildings, including a four bedroom farmhouse, and permission to create three further dwellings through conversion of existing buildings. Included with the property is a mainly flat paddock extending to approximately 4 acres.
The property represents a superb opportunity for the prospective purchaser to acquire a charming Grade II listed four bedroom granite farmhouse. Well situated on the edge of the village of Sithney, just outside Helston, and close to the fishing village of Porthleven, the property also benefits from planning permissions for the creation of three further dwellings.
The main farmhouse has undergone a scheme of renovation to create a fine family home. Accessed from the access road through the paddock, a path leads to the front door of the handsome double-fronted home. Entering into the hallway with tiled floor, double doors open into the spacious kitchen-diner. The contemporary farmhouse style kitchen has a range of base units with solid wood worktops and double Belfast sink. An electric range cooker could be fitted against the chimney breast, with a beautiful timber lintel over. A useful breakfast bar offers additional surface space. The floorboards have been stripped and varnished and provide a warm feeling.
The sitting room has views to the gardens, and some beautiful original cabinets built into the alcoves either side of the fireplace. To the first floor are four well-proportioned bedrooms, with the master enjoying an en-suite shower room with basin and WC. The family bathroom has been refitted with free-standing claw-foot bath, basin and WC.
Connected to the main house, and accessible through the downstairs, the property extends into what was a barn. Planning permission and listed building consent has been granted for the conversion of this into a separate three bedroomed property, however it could equally be incorporated into the main house to further extend the living accommodation, subject to the necessary permissions being granted.
Across the farmyard is a large horseshoe barn with permission for conversion to create two four bedroomed dwellings, both with parking and courtyard gardens. The properties would enjoy large open-plan kitchen/living spaces with vaulted ceilings.
The property also boasts a paddock extending to approximately 4 acres, with a stable and tack room, along with the yard which provides ample off-street parking. Access is available both from the access road in the paddock and via a gate from the road.
The nearby town of Helston is a traditional market town which boasts much history and charm and stands at the gateway to The Lizard peninsula, which is mainland Britain's most southerly point with many picturesque and rural villages. Helston town itself provides a good range of amenities including a sports centre with indoor swimming pool, junior and comprehensive schooling, sixth form college, cinema, doctors surgeries, pharmacies and a good variety of shops and supermarkets. Approximately 2.5 miles to the south lies Porthleven with its long sandy beach, award winning restaurants and busy harbour.
