Rising Sun, Callington Guide Price £600,000

  • Country business in an accessible location
  • 4 double bedroom apartment
  • Extensive parking and lawned gardens
  • 75 cover restaurant with commercial kitchen
  • Further 2 bedroom apartment
  • Panoramic countryside views

Originally built by the current owners as a luxury four bedroom bungalow on farm land, Sleepy Hollow has been extended over the years to provide firstly a thriving farm shop and cafe, then a 75-cover restaurant with first-class commercial kitchen facilities and a two bedroom manager’s flat above. More recently, a sizeable storage area beneath the bungalow has been converted into two beauty salons with waiting room. The southern side of the property has been laid to lawn and gardens, with the remaining outside area converted to hard-standing for 40+ cars. The two-storey building’s footprint is approximately 200 m2 with the overall plot size approximately 2,000 m2. The vendor confirms that additional land on the adjacent farm may be available by separate negotiation. Due to imminent retirement by the current owner, Sleepy Hollow is being offered for sale as a potentual business concern, or as a residential development opportunity, potentially for conversion to a retirement home, luxury apartments, independent living accommodation or a spacious country residence . It is worth noting that the property’s build quality is high, with much of the work overseen by the current owner’s late father whose standards were recognised as being very exacting.


Rising Sun
Callington PL17 8JB
County: Cornwall
Sale Type: For Sale
Ref #: DBO01271

Location

Sleepy Hollow is set in peaceful, rural surroundings, just north of the hamlet of Rising Sun. The property is accessed via its own short tarmac driveway that leads off an adopted minor road linking the main A390 to the village of Harrowbarrow, one mile to the south, and with a Post Office-shop, pub, school, church and village hall. The main A390 is 250 metres to the north of the property and links the main towns of Callington in Cornwall (three miles to the west) and Tavistock in Devon (seven miles to the east). The property is close to a bus route for the town of Saltash (ten miles) and city of Plymouth (15 miles). Plymouth has an extensive shopping centre and main railway station with frequent services into London Paddington. There are also local railway stations at Gunnislake (two miles) and Calstock (three miles) with direct services into Plymouth. The site is in an elevated position with far-reaching southerly views across open countryside and out towards Plymouth Sound which is 20km (12 miles) away in a direct sight-line. The property is secluded and not overlooked, with only a farm house and converted barn to the south-east, and farm land and buildings to the north-east. Sleepy Hollow is in the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and surrounded by the Tamar Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The National Trust estate of Cotehele and local beauty spot of Kit Hill are both easily accessible from the property, as is St Mellion International Resort, a prestigious golf, leisure and hotel complex with its pro-standard Kernow and Jack Nicklaus Signature Courses.

Restaurant Reception

21' 4'' x 17' 0'' (6.5m x 5.18m)

Primary public access to the property is via a glass-fronted entrance into the restaurant reception. This covers an area of 34m2 and has two uPVC windows to the southern elevation. The room is carpeted and decorated in neutral colours, has thick beamed ceilings, a feature fireplace, and a corner sink behind the reception bar. Currently furnished with tub chairs and coffee tables, the area seats up to 16 guests. If the property is converted into a retirement home or supported living accommodation, this light, spacious room could continue being used as a reception area.

Restaurant

26' 1'' x 17' 6'' (7.95m x 5.33m)

Access to the restaurant itself is through an archway from the reception. This is made up of three areas, linked through archways, and with total floor space of 42 m2. There are two picture windows and two French doors to the southern elevation, and three further windows to the eastern elevation (all uPVC). The restaurant has a bar, plus separate gents` and ladies` cloakrooms accessed via a lobby at the rear of the restaurant. The area is carpeted and decorated in neutral colours, and currently furnished with cottage-style tables and chairs that can accommodate up to 75 guests. This would make an ideal communal dining and lounge area if the property were converted into a retirement home or supported living accommodation. Alternatively, the area could be converted into a ground floor apartment with direct access to the south-facing lawn and gardens.

Kitchens

26' 7'' x 19' 8'' (8.1m x 5.99m)

The main kitchen covers 48m2 and is fitted with an extensive range of Blue Seal stainless steel appliances and Foster stainless steel sinks and fridge freezers, all of which are maintained in immaculate condition. Units run along all walls, and there is a large central island of cupboards and ovens with stainless steel worktops. High level windows provide natural light, and there is ample strip and pendant lighting to the ceiling. A further fully-fitted preparation area (12m2) links the main kitchen with the restaurant bar, and there is a walk-in pantry or office (6m2) with telephone point. This exceptional commercial kitchen would be ideally placed to cater for the needs of residents should the property be converted into a retirement home or supported living accommodation.

Beauty Salons

The ground floor salons are accessed through arched double glass doors set at right-angles to the restaurant reception entrance. The suite of rooms includes its own reception area with separate cloakroom, fully-fitted hair styling salon, and two further treatment rooms. Total floor space is 60m2 with all rooms having power, water and drainage. The walls are smooth plastered and finished in neutral colours, and there is matching industrial tiled flooring. Given the property`s conversion to a retirement home, the salons could be retained as treatment or recreational rooms for residents. Alternatively, they could be converted into a ground floor level-access apartment with a southerly aspect towards the lawn and gardens.

Bungalow

Sleepy Hollow`s original four bedroom L-shaped luxury bungalow is located above the current restaurant reception, kitchens and ground floor salons. Main access to this is via a ramp from the car park which leads up to a large south-facing conservatory with far-reaching views across the countryside and towards Plymouth Sound. Total floor space is over 130m2 with all rooms leading off a wide L-shaped hallway that also has stairs leading down to the main kitchen. There are four large double bedrooms, one with en suite wet room, a family bathroom, lounge with feature fireplace, and dining room with kitchen through a connecting archway. There are windows to the north, west and south elevations, all with far-reaching views across the countryside. Decor and fitted carpets are in neutral colours. The bungalow`s bright, spacious rooms would convert easily into those of a retirement home, or the accommodation could be divided to create supported or open-market luxury apartments.

The Apartment

Independent to the main living accommodation; the apartment could provide another income stream, separate family living space or perhaps a living space for an, on site restaurant/property manager.

Outside

The property is accessed via a gated entrance that leads onto a gravelled car park surrounding the building to the west, north and east. There are spaces for over 40 cars, several of which are adjacent to an external entrance to the 2 bedroom apartment. To the south of the property, the land is laid to lawn with one shallow terrace and stone retaining wall, and bordered with mature trees and hedging. A paved path runs from the building`s entrance along the southern elevation of the restaurant and towards the car park on the eastern boundary. There are ornamental stone features set in the lawn and wooden benches against the building`s southern wall. The vendor confirms that further land beyond the eastern boundary line may be available by separate negotiation. To the left hand side of the property beyond the private hedging is where the retired former farm land is situated.

Land

The vendor has advised that there is the opportunity to lease some additional land by separate negotiation. Please enquire with the agent.

Agent note

The property is offered for sale with the following areas being fully furnished and equipped: the restaurant, the restaurant kitchens, the hair styling salon. Fixtures and furnishings in the restaurant reception and two treatment rooms are excluded from the sale.
