Just over 2 miles from Sennen Cove, Brea Barn is situated in a small rural cluster of properties enjoying a magnificent broad panorama across miles of open countryside and out to sea, as far as the Isles of Scilly on a good day.

Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Penwith Peninsula remains largely unspoilt with a stunning landscape of rugged cliffs, steeply wooded valleys, small rocky fishing coves and truly wonderful sandy beaches. One of the nearest beaches is Sennen Cove where there is a good selection of restaurants, pubs and shops together with fine surfing and spectacular local scenery. This area of West Cornwall is also renowned for its rich cultural heritage with local attractions including the cliff top Minack Theatre at Porthcurno, various local galleries in Penzance and the Tate Gallery at St Ives.

The village of St Just is around 2.5 miles and offers a range of local amenities. The harbour town of Penzance forms the main commercial centre for the Lands End Peninsula with a main line railway station linking with London Paddington.

Extending to around 3,300 sq ft, Brea Barn is an impressive converted barn that offers significant flexibility in how it is occupied. Whilst a single dwelling, the property is currently informally arranged with interlinking doors to provide accommodation that is ideal for an extended family.

With handsome exposed granite elevations, this attached property sits within the curtilage of a Listed Building and overlooks an extensive lawned garden and open countryside to the sea beyond.

The main section of the house is of a reverse level design featuring a superb 44 ft long living area with Canadian maple floor, tall windows, exposed roof timbers, Stromboli woodburner and a shaker style kitchen complemented with granite worktops. The views from this first floor room are outstanding! Adjacent to the kitchen area is a washroom/toilet. Below here are two bedrooms, a study and bathroom. Opening from the dual height galleried entrance hall are doors on both floors to additional accommodation comprising two studio style units, each with a bedroom, bathroom and living area. Completing the accommodation is an area that is currently laid out with a further bedroom, bathroom and open plan living area.

Approached over an owned driveway with one other right of way, Brea Barn stands within gardens of around 0.5 acre. Of particular note is a substantial detached workshop /garage which could provide cover for up to four cars. There is additional parking for up to ten vehicles.

The fabulous lawned garden is arranged in two tiers and principally enclosed by a Cornish stone wall. Enjoying great views, this area is home to a delightful wildlife pond, summerhouse/potting shed and greenhouse with adjacent vegetable plot. On the southern side of the dwelling is a more intimate gravel courtyard garden with access to the entrance doors.

Private water supply (borehole and well). Shared private drainage. LPG fired central heating. Mains elrectricity.

Proceed in a westerly direction on the A30 towards Sennen and Lands End. Turn right onto the B3306 towards St Just and Pendeen and continue for around 0.5 mile, turning left into the driveway just before Ambleside.
