A renovated farmhouse and barn with planning permission, no near neighbours and panoramic views. Approached over a private lane, 4 bedrooms (1 en suite), 3 reception rooms, kitchen, range of outbuildings, adjoining paddock. EPC Band E. 4.58 Acres in all.


The property enjoys a most desirable situation in the heart of Bodmin Moor, just south of the South West Water reservoir at Colliford Lake and some 2 miles from the vital A30 trunk road linking the Cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is access to the M5 motorway network, mainline railway stations serving London Paddington and an international airport. The pretty moorland village of St Neot is only 2 miles away with a pub and village hall. The towns of Bodmin and Liskeard are 9 and 11 miles distance respectively with a comprehensive range of shopping facilities and mainline railway stations (via Plymouth). The property lies within some of the finest riding out in the West Country and this, together with access to main commuting routes, makes it a property worthy of an early inspection.


A period farmhouse, which has been renovated in the last few years by the vendor, to provide a home of quality and comfort. The property successfully combines character and charm of the period, such as impressive fireplaces, flag slate floors and wooden floors to the bedrooms, with more modern facilities including oil fired central heating and double glazing.


The accommodation is clearly illustrated on the floorplan overleaf and comprises: entrance hall, cloakroom, former dairy and study, which enjoys views over the surrounding pasture paddocks and countryside beyond. The sitting room and dining room have impressive fireplaces with woodburning stoves and the sitting room also enjoys the views to the front aspect. The refurbished kitchen has fitted base and eye level units, an integral eye level double oven, worksurface with inset hob with extractor over, stainless steel sink and appliance space.


To the first floor, there is a master bedroom with en suite, three further bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom.


The property is accessed from a concrete drive of some 0.3 miles, which we understand from the vendor is owned by the property. There is parking for several vehicles together with a DETACHED GARAGE. The garden is laid mainly to lawn with well defined hedge and fence boundaries.


From the driveway there is access to the most impressive farmyard set up comprising: L-SHAPED SINGLE STOREY GRANITE BARN which has permission for conversion to residential use on renewal notice PA15/00312 dated 17 May 2018.
