Property Description

Main Residence
The detached Grade II Listed farmhouse is striking, with free-flowing accommodation accessed by a solid, wide wooden front door; this opens into the welcoming entrance hallway which has a slated floor and stairs ascending to the first floor. There are three main reception rooms including the lounge which is a light and airy space having exposed wall and roof beams. The main focal point of the lounge is the eye-catching fire surround with its inset wood burning stove, set upon a slate hearth.

The cosy heated conservatory has a glass roof and is double glazed with a slate floor and cill; the current owners enjoy relaxing in this space all year round. The formal dining room has a slate floor and a grand floor to ceiling fireplace with a granite lintel and two clome ovens (one believed to have an authentic original door). The lounge and dining room each boast a feature window seat with a south facing window, attracting natural light. Moving through, the kitchen is superbly equipped with solid granite worksurfaces and a traditional range of wooden fronted kitchen units including a Belfast style sink unit. This lovely room has a high ceiling, slate floor and many integrated appliances including a Neff double oven and induction hob above, and dishwasher. The oil-fired range oven is a centrepiece, firing both the domestic hot water and central heating systems. The light flows through the roof windows, whilst the slate floor and an external stable door would be a real boon for those with pets to consider. The final touch to the ground floor is a utility room with a W/C off and a superb walk in storage pantry.

The first-floor landing accesses the two bedrooms; the master bedroom has a large built in airing cupboard, and an en-suite shower room/WC with a large cubicle. Bedroom two has a deep window cill and a superb walk in storage room/wardrobe with hanging space within the eaves. Both bedrooms have exposed beams and are south facing. The additional family shower room is well appointed with a non-slip floor, modern downlighting and large corner shower cubicle.

This superb home has many character features including rustic latched doors and granite thresholds, successfully blended with modern comforts such as oil-fired central heating and sealed unit double glazing.

The Old Dairy
This is the larger of the two holiday barns and has high specification reversed two-bedroom accommodation. The barn can be accessed either by the lane or from the rear, where there is an enclosed garden with a paved outdoor seating area to enjoy the sunshine. A hot tub is included in the sale.

The rooms include a large split-level open plan living/dining/kitchen area; the lounge area has a wooden floor with exposed beams and stonework, with a wood burning stove, whilst the kitchen is well equipped with a range of cream fronted matching units - wall and base. Included in the sale is an electric oven and hob with extractor over, a dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge and freezer.

On the lower ground floor are two bedrooms, both large enough to accommodate a double or twin bed. The main bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom/WC with a shower over the bath. Bedroom two has an en-suite shower room/WC with soaker shower within a corner shower cubicle. The barn is sold fully furnished and has sealed unit double glazed windows and oil-fired central heating.

Molly’s Barn
Molly’s Barn is a comfortable well appointed two bedroom holiday barn which again has reversed accommodation to make the most of the glorious surroundings.

The first floor is made up of an open plan living/kitchen/dining space, and the kitchen is well equipped with a range of beige fronted wall and base units. There are many integrated appliances including an electric oven, hob and extractor, dishwasher, washer dryer, and fridge with freezer compartment. The living space has exposed stonework and feature beamed ceilings. On the lower ground floor are two double bedrooms, both spacious enough for twin beds. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite shower room/WC with a soaker shower with a corner cubicle, whilst the other bedroom has a bathroom/WC with a shower unit above.

There is an enclosed outside space with level paved seating area and hot tub. The barn is sold fully furnished and has sealed unit double glazed windows and oil-fired central heating.

The main vehicular access is at the rear of the complex, accessed by double wooden gates which swing open into the large gravel parking/turning area. The whole of the driveway is suitable for the storage of many vehicles/boats/caravans/motorhomes. At the side, there is a large wooden storage shed with adjacent large enclosed fruit cage. Within the main driveway area is a stone former piggery, useful for storage, with a stable door at the side. A wooden cabin has been utilised as an external home office – this has power, light and internet connectivity, and a wall mounted electric heater.

The gardens and grounds are exceptionally attractive and expand to the rear and side of the property; they are predominantly laid to lawn with a range of attractive and colourful borders offering a mix of natural boundaries and fencing. The fencing is extensive, and separates the formal garden from the pasture. The outside areas of the holiday lets are clearly defined with a focus on privacy for everyone.

One of the detached stone buildings, known as The Cart House Studio, is a superb building with consent as a games room ancillary to the holiday units. Our clients have kept this building private for themselves thus far, utilising it as a studio. It has lovely outstanding features such as ‘A’ frame beams and exposed granite walls along with the practicalities of power, light and water, and has great potential (subject to obtaining all necessary consents) to be converted and potentially extended to create a further holiday unit.

The pasture, which is level and well enclosed, is laid mainly to paddocks at the side of the superb wooden stable block; this has two looseboxes and a tack room. Further outside space includes a split level lawn featuring a large wildlife pond, and enclosed productive vegetable garden with large greenhouse and further raised vegetable beds. On the western side of the property is an enclosed patio seating area, perfect for making the most of the afternoon and evening sunshine. Adjacent is the outside utility room and separate WC.

To the front of the property is a wonderful south facing colourful garden, which is split level, featuring authentic stone banks well stocked with range of shrubs, bushes and perennials; these offer a range of colour all year round, especially attractive during the spring and summer months.

Tregunnon is a small rural hamlet positioned approximately 1 mile from the attractive moorland village of Altarnun. Altarnun boasts a Post Office, Village Shop, Public House and County Primary School and nearby the A30 trunk road gives access to Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction. The ancient former Market town of Launceston lies some 8 miles away and offers a range of commercial, educational, recreational and shopping facilities.
