Bolitho Barton enjoys a peaceful, rural position with a gentle southerly aspect and far reaching views to the south, with distant views of the sea on a clear day. The Farmhouse lies just to the south the residential properties within Lot 2, set back about 500m from the road. Both Lots 1 and 2 are accessed separately with the farmhouse enjoying a long private drive through its own land.

The nearby village of Praze-an-Beeble (2.5 miles) offers a good range of local amenities, including a Pre-school and Primary School, both judged "Good" by Ofsted, a popular public house, a fish and chip shop, bakery, village shop & Post Office and a doctor's surgery.

The market town of Helston is just 5.5 mile to the south and offers a range of shopping facilities and supermarkets as well as secondary school education. The Cathedral City of Truro and the Port
of Falmouth offer a more extensive range of facilities with Truro being the county's administrative,
retailing and commercial centre with a mainline rail link to London Paddington. Newquay Airport
provides daily scheduled flights to domestic and international destinations.

There are numerous tourist attractions within easy reach and many of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall lie within a short drive, including Gunwalloe, Poldhu, Kennack Sands, Mullion Cove, Loe Bar, Kynance Cove, Praa Sands and Porthleven. Stithians Lake Water Sports Centre is just 5.5 miles away and access to the A30, which provides a dual carriageway link with the M5 at Exeter is at Camborne.

Situated just to the north of the Farmhouse, down a long driveway, a courtyard of 5 barns have been converted into a generously proportioned 3/4 bedroom managers unit and 2 single storey 1 bedroom holiday lets and 2 two storey 3 bedroom lets, (extending to just over 4,040 sq ft GIA in all).

The adjacent farmyard offers potential for a range of uses including equestrian, further holiday lets and perhaps full residential dwellings, obviously subject to obtaining the necessary consents. The adjoining field that contained the former slurry pit is included and offers potential to be landscaped into an attractive lake.

The Managers Unit was a former piggery building and has been very successfully converted to a comfortable dwelling with a spacious split level, open plan kitchen and living area, with a light and airy feel, with exposed timber floors and elevated ceilings with exposed roof trusses.

The accommodation is shown on the attached floorplan, but briefly comprises:

Front door into large utility room, leading into a large fully equipped Kitchen/Dining area, with 3 steps down to the Living Room which has a wood burner and a door into the conservatory which leads out into the garden. Off the kitchen is a large double bedroom that is also ideally suited to use as the business's office. A corridor leads to a master bedroom (also with garden access) and an ensuite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room, and a family bathroom.

A private garden with sitting area, lawn and pond, all enclosed by a close boarded fence with established shrubs bordering it, lies between the barn and the courtyard. To the side is a double garage with power and a roller shutter door.

Two pairs of semi-detached stone barn conversions under slate roofs surround an attractive courtyard and retain many character features including, slate and timber floors and exposed timbers and granite fireplaces. Each cottage has a modern kitchen. It is intended to include all the fittings, fixtures and furniture. The two smaller cottages have private rear gardens. The business has been established for many years and is almost fully booked for this summer.

The adjacent former milking parlour also appears to have potential for conversion to an additional holiday let if desired, (STP).
