Dunsdon Stables enjoys a peaceful, rural position, within the parish of Pancrasweek. It lies a mile from the Cornish border and is almost equidistant from Holsworthy and Bude. The farm is situated next door to the renowned Dunsdon Nature Reserve, claimed to be the single most important example of Culm pasture in England.
The popular North Cornwall surfing beaches lie to the west and the rugged North Devon coastline to the north and north west, offering excellent opportunities to walk, swim, sail, gig row and fish. There are far reaching views over unspoilt countryside to Rough Tor on Bodmin Moor and the Dartmoor hills form a handsome back-drop to the south east, again offering excellent walking and horse-riding opportunities.
The market town of Holsworthy, known for its weekly livestock and pannier markets, boasts a Waitrose Supermarket, a wide range of shops, banks, professional services and agricultural suppliers. Nearby, Bradworthy and Bude also offer local amenities and shopping. The A39 is approximately 4 miles away and the A30 dual-carriageway can be joined at Launceston and Okehampton (19 miles and 21 miles respectively).DESCRIPTION
Dunsdon Stables was recently granted planning permission for a large barn conversion. The existing building comprises a (18.6 m x 19.9 m) fully enclosed, steel portal frame barn and lean-to with a secure sliding door and it currently incorporates 9 high quality American style stables. There is a tack room, mezzanine storage area, hay store and access to an all weather, sand turn-out area with easy access to the adjacent 60' x 30' manege. To the side of the barn is a concrete muck-heap storage area.
The consent allows for the conversion and change of use of the barn into a very substantial detached dwelling, 3,821 sqft GIA, with adjoining covered parking area. The layout of the accommodation can be seen on the floorplan on the reverse of these details and in more detail within the Planning Pack - see below. In brief it allows for very generously proportioned accommodation which includes: kitchen / family room, living room, study and shower with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms on the first floor. Large windows will take full advantage of the attractive far reaching views.THE LAND
The land offered with the barn includes the yard area surrounding the barn and most of the adjoining field with the 60' x 30' manege in it This area totals 2.03 acres. A small area below the manege will be retained to allow access through a new gateway to the Additional Land.ADDITIONAL LAND
In addition to this, are a further 11.61 acres comprised in 4 relatively level fields that until recently have been managed under the Environmental Stewardship Scheme and are restored wild flower meadows, rich in flora and fauna. There are mature hedges providing good shade and shelter and on the far side of the pasture lies an attractive small 1.07 acre woodland. Either all or roughly half of this can be purchased with the barn or option rights will be given to the Purchaser to buy it in 12 months time.
