This is a beautiful stone built property set in a tranquil location in grounds of approximately 3.5 acres. There are far reaching elevated views that span across your own land and passed rolling fields to the sea. Accompanying the three bedroom main house is a detached stone built two bedroom single level cottage with a further detached Artist studio. Not only is this gem in a very private rural location and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but it also remains in a highly convenient location for amenities being no more than 1.5 miles from Penzance. The property is a quintessential Cornish Barn conversion which has reverse level accommodation in order to maximise the stunning views on offer from the sitting room and balcony.
The triple aspect sitting room is awash with light from traditional hardwood windows, and the French doors lead onto the balcony where spectacular views can be seen. Adjacent to the sitting room is the dining room where there is even more character and charm with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and stone walls. The dining room flows into the kitchen which is well proportioned with generous granite work top space, numerous storage cupboards and built in fridge freezer, dish washer and washing machine. The ground floor accommodation has two double bedrooms and a third bedroom with the larger double bedroom having en-suite shower room facilities. Completing the main house accommodation is a well appointed family bathroom.
Adjacent to the main house is a detached single level stone built cottage which the current owners have used as guest accommodation in recent times. Much like the main house the cottage is full of character throughout and would be ideal for use for dependant relatives, guests or for letting purposes. There are two double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes, family shower room, kitchen and triple aspect sitting room with lovely views of the sea and garden. Additionally there is a detached artist studio which is of generous size and is fitted with amenities including a shower room. This too could be perfect for overflow accommodation for guests or as a holiday let (subject to change of use permissions).
