Full description

This is a wonderful, individual detached ancient stone farmhouse at the centre of the hilltop village of North Hill which huddles around its beautiful listed Church.

Blythes Farmhouse is a listed property and the frontage elevation is prominent within the village street scenery. The potential to enhance and adapt the property, possibly incorporating the outbuildings at the rear is tremendous.

This is the sort of property where a great deal of character may well be exposed during renovation works. It is considered there are two large stone open fireplaces at each end of the property. One would appear to have a cloam oven due to the stone protrusion indicating such at one gable end.

Whilst listed building consent will be required to alter the premises it is considered a Conservation Officer will be keen to see a change of emphasis of the interior highlighting the original character of the property and removing some of the 1960s / 70s introductions in terms of surfacing's and fitment.

A particular feature of the property is the rear yard enclosed by a wonderful little run of stone outhouses with series of doors each hung on a granite post. There is a walkway through these outhouses to a gorgeous area of potential family garden which itself enjoys a separate access. The outbuildings might well have potential for linking with the house in part to provide additional accommodation and part perhaps to provide annexe accommodation or garaging.

Opportunities to acquire rich refurbishment projects such as Blythes Farmhouse are rare these days.

The property has night storage heaters throughout.

North Hill is a favoured village on the flanks of the dramatically scenic Lynher Valley at the eastern margins of Bodmin Moor with the nearest section of open moor known as ‘Twelve Mens Moor’.

Nearby and at the heart of North Hill village is the ancient Parish Church of St. Torney.   Also in the village is the good food village pub ‘The Racehorse Inn’ and a Village Hall which is socially active including playgroup. There is a weekly mobile shop.

Launceston, some 7 miles provides a full range of social, commercial and shopping facilities and in the opposite direction the market town of Liskeard provides a similar range of facilities plus mainline rail station.   

To the east of Launceston, Exeter (49 miles) provides M5 motorway link, intercity rail link and international airport. The city of Plymouth (24 miles) provides continental ferry port and intercity rail link also.
