The property is a picturesque former farmhouse, extended around 30 years ago, situated in the heart of the countryside in the pretty rural parish of Withiel. Away from the hustle and bustle of the popular north Cornish coast, Home Farm offers tranquillity and privacy. Within easy access of the A30, providing links to Truro, Exeter and nearby Bodmin Parkway railway station, Home Farm is convenient for Wadebridge offering an excellent range of shops and amenities.
The area has a wealth of footpaths and bridleways and is just a short distance from the Saints Way, an ancient pilgrimage route which runs through countryside from Padstow to Fowey. Used as far back as the Bronze Age by traders, drovers and pilgrims en-route from Ireland and Wales to mainland Europe. Nowadays this little known coast to coast path explores the many hidden places of mid-Cornwall which are often missed by the majority of visitors.
Nearby Rock and Padstow, with some of the very best sandy beaches that north Cornwall has to offer, including Polzeath and Daymer Bay are within a short drive,. For the golfing enthusiast there are several renowned courses including St. Enodoc and Trevose on opposite sides of the Camel Estuary.
The nearby South West Coastal Path provides miles of wonderful bracing walks and there is also the Camel Trail, which is also excellent for cyclists, and of course the highly regarded Camel Valley vineyard. Made famous by the celebrity chef Rick Stein, the north coast is now a gastronomic destination with fabulous fresh seafood and excellent restaurants. To the south lies Cornwall Airport (Newquay), providing regular links to Gatwick, Manchester and seasonal European destinations. Bodmin Parkway offers a mainline train link to London Paddington.FEATURES OF THE PROPERTY
The property is a beautiful example of a traditional Cornish country home; tasteful character blends with modern upgrades creating a comfortable and welcoming interior. Facing south, the house looks out over its wonderfully stocked front garden and there is a paddock to the rear.
On the ground floor the open plan triple aspect kitchen / breakfast room, with two sets of French doors to the patio, is defined by exposed beams, flagstone flooring (with underfloor heating), granite tops and a new AGA. From the rear hall/lobby with its door to the covered porch the living room features a wood burner with slate hearth, beams and a pretty front porch. Leading off is a separate snug/sitting room (with the potential to knock through) and at the rear a study leads through to a utility room and WC.
Upstairs the window at half landing provides a wonderful countryside view and the accommodation has been reconfigured to provide a master bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite, guest en suite bedroom, one further double bedroom and a family bathroom. Far-reaching countryside views are enjoyed from all rooms.OUTSIDE
Alongside the gated driveway, providing parking for at least six cars, is a terrace of very useful and highly adaptable barns, currently used for laundry and general storage. One of the units has two storeys with the first floor used as a home office/studio /games room. Subject to all necessary consents and regulations this area could potentially be converted to provide annexed accommodation. Opposite is the former piggery, now a log and bin store. These outbuildings have been renovated and re-roofed by the current owners.
Accessed via its own entrances is a paddock situated behind the outbuildings with a large purpose-built barn providing excellent storage/workshop space. This barn has a concrete floor, power and plumbing.
The front garden is a beautiful and varied array of specimens, trees and shrubs including pleached lime and ginkgo biloba, at the foot of which is an area of lawn and woodland. Immediately outside the kitchen is a delightful patio terrace providing an idyllic space for al fresco dining. The garden extends around the side (where there is a gardeners WC) and to the rear, where a patio and raised lawn with an orchard separate the house from the paddock most effectively. In total, around 2.5 acres, with just under 13 acres of additional land (including paddocks and woodland) available by separate negotiation.DIRECTIONS
