The barn is used by the present vendors as ancillary accommodation for their family when they visit, it is comprised of a large open plan room on the ground floor with log burner and a fabulous mezzanine sleeping area on the first floor.

There is a further garage/workshop of good size which subject to any necessary consents being obtained could offer scope for conversion to further accommodation or useful home office space.


The property sits on a generous plot of approximately one third of an acre. The gardens are divided into different areas and include a beautiful courtyard seating area, a sheltered area used by the present vendors as a produce garden and a generous lawned garden to the rear of the property stocked with a range of mature shrubs, plants and trees and having a useful timber shed. There is also an attractive level garden to the front of the property which is mostly laid to lawn enclosed by a traditional cornish stone wall. There is off road parking for several vehicles in the driveway and courtyard and also a further gravelling parking space to the front of the Garage/workshop. An interesting feature within the grounds is a cave which the current owners have carried some research out on and is likely to have been used as a tinners hut in times gone by.


Prospective purchasers should be aware that the barn is used by the current vendors as holiday accommodation for their family when they visit but there are no toilet facilities within the barn and guests must use those inside the property. The vendors have informed us that there was previously a section 106 restriction on the barn but that this has now been removed.


Please also be aware that our vendors have also advised us that there is lapsed planning permission for the garage and workshop to be converted and also that the two storey barn had planning permission to install a bathroom. Subject to any necessary consents being obtained both the two storey barn and the garage/workshop offer potential for conversion into residential units and would appear ideally suited to anyone seeking a holiday letting income stream.


The property is served by a private water supply, private drainage and mains electricity and butane Gas serving the range oven in the Kitchen.
