  • Barn plus 3 outbuildings

DESCRIPTION

Nestled to one side of its approximate 2.1 acre plot, a delightful single-storey converted barn with attractive stone elevations, accompanied by a range of outbuildings which comprise a refurbished detached studio annexe, large workshop/barn (ideal artists/crafts studio) and a further unconverted barn (former stables) which also has great potential to convert. The grounds are extremely well kept and feature formal lawned gardens with willow windbreak bordering a meadow and lightly wooded garden area adjacent to a long driveway with ample parking for multiple vehicles.

THE PROPERTY

A (genuinely) unique opportunity to acquire a substantial plot and range of outbuildings within an idyllic setting. Certainly those searching for a lifestyle change or a more self-sufficient approach to living, will be particularly interested, together with hobbyists, artists, craftsman or simply someone who would like to re-design/extend the existing (fairly modest) accommodation.

The main barn features a semi open-plan living room with wood-burner, leading to a double aspect kitchen/dining room off which there is a timber conservatory/porch, inner hall, two bedrooms and bathroom. In addition, the studio/annexe (positioned on the opposite side of the plot) has been utilised by our client during the Summer months when he airbnb s the main barn, and this features a small kitchenette area, compost WC and living/bedroom, all recently upgraded.

The two additional outbuildings are particularly versatile, the main being used as a workshop with tall ceilings and ample natural light from the recycled double glazing to one elevation. The fourth and final building within the grounds is a small unconverted barn/former stables, situated near the head of the driveway and has a number of potential/future possibilities including garaging, further accommodation or additional workshop space, subject of course to the necessary consents.

In all, an idyllic plot with highly versatile use, glorious grounds and impressive driveway approach, all within ten minutes drive of Constantine village and easy access to the Falmouth-Helston road, also a ten minute drive from the property.
