Freehold – £ POA
A four-bedroomed, former farmhouse in a rural location, close to both the sea and moor. This most attractive residence will surely not remain vacant for long. An early viewing is recommended. Of traditional granite construction with wet-laid scantile roof, it is thought the original house dates to the 1700’s. The generous proportions of the property today were the result of substantial revisions undertaken at the height of prosperity from the adjacent mine in the mid 19th century, when the roof was raised and the front rebuilt. The property has many character features and much charm, it would benefit from some tender loving care. Fireplace and window to rear, lovely views of period farm machinery and the heath.

Attached to one end of the property is a double-story granite barn. The upper floor consists of one large room open to the eaves, approached by granite steps from the field to the rear. It would make an ideal studio.
The ground floor, a former milking shed, is currently used as a storage area. It could easily be incorporated into the main living accommodation providing a versatile layout able to accommodate a range of different life-style requirements.
The property is approached to the front by a private lane through the farm with a Cornish hedge to one side. The garden area to the front is at present open plan. There is ample parking for 2/3 horses. The property enjoys a thoroughly rural location with lovely open views across surrounding countryside, taking in antique farm machinery and a disused mine at the bottom of the garden. Further land may be available by separate negotiation.
COUNCIL TAX BAND C (estimated).
There is no land registry entry for this property. As with many older properties in West Cornwall paperwork was considered of no consequence. Homes were passed down through the generations without formal records being kept, sometimes leading at a later date to familial dispute.
Electricity available nearby. A particular benefit of this property, as its name implies, is its own generous water supply. Full potential for a swimming pool. On-site landfill.
