The Main Property
The farmhouse oozes character in every way. The traditional kitchen features a solid fuel Aga and a timber wash unit with Belfast sink. The remainder of the Kitchen is freestanding. There’s space and wiring for a conventional freestanding cooker. In recent years, most of the windows have been replaced with locally built sash units and a new roof has been installed. The Lounge has a most beautiful inglenook fireplace which currently houses a wood burning stove, adjacent to the lounge is a dining room or study, again with an open fireplace. Upstairs in the main house you will find 4 generous bedrooms, the master having a walk-in wardrobe which could become an ensuite and a family bathroom with loft access.
Located on the side of the house, and being utilised as part of the main property, the annex provides a large ensuite bedroom on the 1st floor view views over the valley, on the ground floor is a 2nd kitchen and shower room/utility alongside a large entrance hallway. The Annex could be completely split if required and converted to a 2-bedroom cottage.
There are a range of outbuildings on the farm with various degrees of condition. There are 2 barns which are now derelict, 2 stables, log and tools stores, the original bull pen which is utilised as a workshop, the existing shop which fronts onto the road, another partially converted building, which with a little more work could become additional accommodation and various smaller dilapidated stone buildings including pig pens. The property has been used commercially as a nursey in the past and the footprints of the poly tunnels and greenhouses remain.
The property offers tremendous potential to any potential purchaser. We understand there’s currently permitted development planning permission on one of the greenhouses and on the Stables which are attached to the main house. Subject to further planning, there may be potential for additional dwellings on the foot prints of existing structures. The land has been used in the past as a nursery and could be reopened as this or a similar business subject to any necessary consents.
The farm lies approximately half a mile to the south of the popular village of Stithians which has an excellent range of amenities, including a shop, pub, community hall, church and a primary school judged as "good" by OFSTED. Falmouth and the Cathedral city of Truro are just a short car journey away and offer a more extensive range of shopping, health and leisure facilities. The A30, which provides direct access to Exeter and the National motorway network can be joined at Redruth, approximately 6 miles to the north. Stithians is ideally located for several popular beaches and other tourist attractions on both the north and south coast. There is a comprehensive network of paths, bridleways and lanes, which provide excellent walking and horse riding in the area. An adjacent bridleway provides miles of unspoilt 'off-road' riding and walking around the nearby Stithians Lake and Wildlife resort - a real asset to horse riders. The lake itself provides an extensive range of water sports and camping facilities, a coffee shop, bird watching hides and a children’s playground.
