The property lies in a private position set well back from the road, in a conveniently central location for travel around Cornwall. The old county town of Bodmin lies 3.5 miles to the east, offering an extensive range of shopping, banking, schooling and leisure facilities. Access to the renowned Camel Cycle Trail which, links the towns of Bodmin via Wadebridge to the picturesque fishing town of Padstow on the North Cornish Coast lies 0.75 miles to the north. Numerous popular beaches are within easy reach, with the North Cornish coast just 11 miles away. Bodmin Parkway is 10 miles from the property with mainline rail services to London Paddington via Plymouth. Access to the A30 trunk road, which connects the Cathedral Cites of Truro and Exeter is 4 miles away. At Exeter there is access to the motorway network, and the highly regarded International Airport.

Newdowns Farm is a versatile smallholding/farm and is to be offered for sale now as a whole. Accessed from the south and the north and comprises a Bungalow, grounds, 2 barns, a dilapidated static home and adjoining gently undulating mainly pasture land, (although equally suitable for arable). The land is accessed off the road to the north and extends to 42.5 acres in all.

The detached 3 to 4 bedroom bungalow (1,786 sq ft not including outbuildings), lies at the end of a no-through road/lane and is surrounded by a generous sized garden. Close by are two agricultural barns, (as shown in the photographs), which appear to have potential for various alternative uses, perhaps including residential conversion, subject to obtaining any necessary consents.

A dilapidated, but until recently occupied, static home sits between the barns. There are 2 greenhouses within the gardens.

This smallholding would make an ideal family home with plenty of space to bring up children in a safe outdoor environment, perhaps with a menagerie of animals.

Accessed directly off the highway, the land comprises 5 productive fields. Whilst only 1 field is in arable (Barley volunteers from 2019), all the fields have been in an arable rotation in the past. The fields are generally surrounded by stock-proof hedges, although 2 of the fields are just separated by an unfenced track, which access all the fields. The land is gently undulating, free draining land, classified as Grade 3.

Mains electricity and private drainage are connected. Until recently the property was watered by a neighbour's private borehole supply. The Purchaser shall have to install their own water supply. A quote has been obtained for a new filtered borehole supply (£5,759 + VAT) and is available upon request. Lot 2: No services connected. There is an overhead cable (electric or telephone) running along the road that the property fronts. Purchasers must satisfy themselves on these points.

There are no restrictive covenants limiting the use of the property. There is a legal right of access over the private lane to the barns and bungalow. There are no public rights of way shown on the Ordnance Survey plan crossing the property.

This includes the searches, draft contract, deeds/epitome of title, special conditions of sale etc, and is available to download free of charge to those who have registered, from our auction partners website. Due to Covid precautions we are not making it available for inspection at Stags offices. It is the purchaser's responsibility to make all the necessary enquiries prior to the Auction.
