A charming and immaculately presented 4 bedroom barn conversion with attached two bedroom cottage located in a delightful rural position with enclosed gardens and far reaching countryside views
The Barns and Poppy Cottage are a wonderful pair of properties found on the fringes of St Austell in a rural farmstead setting enjoying far reaching rural views over the surrounding countryside. The main property is a spacious 4 bedroom family home spread over two floors having been meticulously maintained and cared for over the course of many years by our clients. The Barn itself is filled with an abundance of character and charm.
The property is entered via a delightful enclosed courtyard which provides access to either the main property or alternatively Poppy Cottage via a separate front door. The Barn accommodation, as mentioned previously, is spread over two floors with the ground floor accommodation providing four double bedrooms with the master providing en suite shower room facilities. There is a separate family bathroom which provides services for the other 2 bedrooms whilst the fourth bedroom has access to a shower room adjacent to the bedroom. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a spacious kitchen / dining room which features a good degree of base and wall mounted units with work surfaces over and tiling to splash back areas. The kitchen houses an oven and 4 ring electric induction hob whilst providing spaces for freestanding fridge freezers, dishwashers and washing machines. Alternatively there is ample space in the separate utility room located just down the hallway.
Beyond the kitchen / dining room is one of the 4 bedrooms which the current owners are renting to a family friend. This bedroom area enjoys high quality en suite shower room facilities together with its own front door leading to the front courtyard. If any buyer had a family member looking for a self contained bedroom but will access to the main accommodation this would be a perfect area for this to happen. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a study / bedroom 5. If any potential purchaser wished to create internal access into Poppy Cottage this would be the room to provide that.
At first floor level is the open plan sitting room loosely divided into two separate areas. The main sitting area enjoys a large double glazed window which overlooks neighbouring fields and surrounding countryside. This view really is exceptional. The other half of this open plan room is currently a secondary seating area. Within this area is a timber door which provides access to the roof void below if required. Poppy Cottage is a self contained, single story, two bedroom property which the current owners utilise for holiday letting purposes.
Poppy Cottage is a charming property with an open plan sitting / dining / kitchen, two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Poppy Cottage also has the use of part of the front courtyard and has been screened to offer privacy. This fabulous property offers the potential for any new buyer to continue with the success our clients have enjoyed and benefit from the income. Alternatively this space offers the potential to house dependent relatives or family members or overspill accommodation from the main property. The property is approached over a private lane which leads to the gravelled parking for the The Barns and Poppy Cottage. From this area access can be gained to the enclosed rear garden or the front courtyard. The front courtyard is a real sun trap and awash with colour from plants and shrubs and an array of hanging baskets. To the rear of the property the gardens are enclosed by timber fencing and mature hedging.
This charming barn conversion enjoys a peaceful and tranquil country setting with delightful far reaching rural views being one of the many benefits of this property. Although having a private setting, the property enjoys a short walk into St Austell town, being the largest town in the county, located just half a mile away. Within the town are a fine range of amenities including a main line railway station linking Paddington to Penzance, a hospital and close by will be found the world famous Eden Project.
