Summary

Approached via a rather beautiful winding, wooded track, this highly individual home offers both character and charm in equal measure, and is located in the beautiful, and highly sought-after hamlet of Sancreed, surrounded by large, mature south-facing gardens. The property and gardens total a third of an acre, including an area of woodland, with the gardens being a haven of wildflowers and mature trees.

With plenty of parking, this spacious, light, 4 double bedroom Cornish farmhouse with a host of money-saving eco features including PV electric with generous, quarterly feed-in tariff, turf-roofed strawbale roundhouse, and wood-fired heating is a must-see.

The property offers incredible flexibility, being a traditional cottage with a unique, timber-frame extension; creating a large 4 double bedroom family home. Inside you have a big farmhouse kitchen, with plenty of dining space, and a large inglenook fireplace at one end. A sunny conservatory runs off this space and connects the whole house with the enchanting garden. Flowing from the kitchen/dining room is the large living room, which is a fabulous double-height space with vaulted ceilings and a mezzanine level. There are two further utility spaces, and a bathroom downstairs.

Upstairs, are four very good size double bedrooms. In the original part of the house, you have a large dual-aspect double, and a second good-size double room that has stairs up to a loft/storage area in one corner. This bedroom enjoys views out over the land towards Lamorna Cove. There is a further bathroom upstairs.

In the modern, yet characterful, extension you have two further double bedrooms, the larger of which has two large velux roof lights flooding the space with natural light. There is a further boarded attic space here with Velux roof lights, as well as access to the mezzanine over the living space.

Outside, the large gardens stretch down and around the property; including a small wild pond, a potential veg patch area, mature woodland, and various seating areas carved out of the abundance of wildflowers in which to enjoy the south-facing aspect.

Also outside, you will find the straw bale roundhouse, which has a turf roof, and a workshop building that has been insulated; once having had a wood burner installed - viewing really is essential to appreciate this incredible opportunity.
