This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a large period farmhouse which has 6 double bedrooms, 5 reception rooms a double garage with loft room above all set in grounds of approximately 2 acres that stretch down to the Gannel Estuary. Originally the main house for the farm the property is believed to date back some 200 years and is coming to the market for the first time in over 30 years. Measuring approx. 5400 square feet this extensive property has its principle rooms facing over its gardens down to the Gannel Estuary. The entrance hallway is flanked by the dual aspect formal sitting room on your right which as feature fire place with stone surround and dining room on the left also with a feature fireplace and bay window. Further down the hallway and centrally in the property is spacious drawing room with sash windows looking directly onto the formal garden.
The kitchen has a range of wall and floor mounted units and was fully replaced approx. 2 years ago. It has an external door to the front garden which with the easterly aspect is perfect for breakfast on a warm summer's morning. Completing the ground floor is the office, 2 store rooms, pantry, separate utility room, boot room and 2 x WC's. Rising to the first floor there are 6 double bedrooms all with fabulous views of countryside and some with views down over the Gannel. There are two very expansive bedrooms which could either be classed as the master bedroom. There is an opportunity to create a dressing room and en-suite to either of these rooms by sacrificing the connecting room between the two. The rear of this floor is the family bathroom with separate shower cubicle, a further shower room and an adjacent separate WC while completing this floor is small store room and study at the far end with fantastic views over the gardens and down to the Gannel.
The property has two separate parking areas with the first off the lane and leads to the front door with parking for approx. 4 cars. The secondary parking area is to the rear of the property where there is further parking for multiple vehicles and is certainly appropriate for a property of this magnitude. Additionally there is a detached double garage with a converted loft room above, which is accessed by stone steps to the side. This would be perfect for a conversion to a small holiday let (subject to permissions). The gardens and grounds are made up of formal gardens in front of the property and a small paddock below this that borders the Gannel Estuary.
A beautiful walled garden is to the side of the main house and is ideal for a vegetable garden, fruit trees and the like. Walking past the garage there is an open barn on your left and another paddock which is on the Northern side of the house which is included in the sale, this paddock has some woodland on the lower side and also borders the Gannel. There is further land available by separate negotiation.
