Extensive gardens with tennis court. Versatile farm buildings.  In all about 357 acres. 

SITUATION
Sudcott Park lies amid beautiful undulating, partly wooded countryside close to the dramatic coastline in north east Cornwall and not far from the River Tamar boundary with Devon. This area is, quite rightly, famed for its beauty and its coastline a magnet for surfers, sailors and walkers.  The farms in the area are given over to a mixture of arable production and grass growing taking full advantage of the regions mild, maritime climate.  The close lying villages of Jacobstow, Week St Mary and Wainhouse Corner provide local shops and primary schooling whilst the coastal town of Bude has a wide range of facilities as does Launceston where the main A30 offers fast access to the M5 at Exeter.  The stunning coast at Crackington Haven and surfer’s beach at Widemouth are five and six miles respectively whilst the run of coastline running southwest towards Wadebridge encompasses some of the most delightful hidden fishing ports in Cornwall. 

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Sudcott Park is a productive and very well housed ring fenced farm formerly used almost entirely for arable production but presently down to grass.  The centre piece is a beautifully appointed farmhouse totalling over 4700 sq ft providing exceptional family accommodation and enjoying far reaching views and offering great potential for those wishing to take advantage of the thriving B & B market in the area.  Set away from the house is a range of modern farm buildings that may be adapted to a number of different uses and the farm has been exceptionally well maintained, is well fenced, gated and in very good heart.  

THE FARMHOUSE
Standing in a slightly elevated position, the farmhouse was constructed on a "greenfield site" around ten years ago by highly respected builders engaged by the present owners.  Great thought was given to its design resulting in a handsome family house with all of the rooms of a very good size and height with plenty of natural light.  Sudcott Park is fully centrally heated and double glazed and care has been taken with the selection of solid four panelled doors with high skirting boards adding to the overall character of the property.  At the front of the house a slate flagged entrance porch and solid timber door leads to a generous reception hall with archway leading to the main hallway with French windows to the outside terrace and doors to all of the principal living rooms.  The kitchen and breakfast room is a stunning room, oak floored throughout with a range of fitted cupboards and wardrobes with oak work surfaces, four oven Aga, propane gas hob, larder and a delightful breakfast area set in a wide glazed bay with French windows to the terrace with fine, panoramic views.   The drawing room is bathed in natural light with windows on three sides, central open fireplace with slate slips and ornate surround, deep window seats with storage lockers below.  The formal dining room (presently used as a study) boasts a central open fireplace with slate hearth and slips and ornate timber surround with alcove cupboards and shelving and a fitted safe proclaiming "E Hipkins & Co - inflexible".  The utility room has a slate flagged floor with a range of floor and wall units with work surfaces, sink and drainer and also houses the Grant oil fired boiler which heats the central heating and hot water.  On the first floor off the generous landing are four very good sized bedrooms, three of which are en-suite, plus further family bathroom and nursery bedroom with three excellent sized bedrooms on the second floor, one of which is en-suite with a further family bathroom.

OUTSIDE
A sweeping gravel drive leads to a wide parking area adjacent to the garage building providing car port, garage parking with pair of kennels and outside runs, tack and boot room, wet room, gardeners w.c and garden store with a very large first floor room over most of the above.  From here a covered walkway leads to the back door of the house.  The front and rear terraces are surrounded by extensive lawns with fenced tennis court and, at a higher level, further lawns are interspersed with trees, kitchen garden and soft fruit cage, greenhouse and chicken run.

THE FARM BUILDINGS
Set well away from the farmhouse is a range of versatile buildings constructed of concrete frame, timber purlins, rendered concrete walls and space boarding to a CA roof.  They have concrete floors throughout and provide loose pens, five stables, tack room, w.c, fodder and machinery storage, workshop, sheep housing and medicine store.  In front is a concrete yard containing a covered livestock handling area.

THE LAND
Extending in total to around 357 acres, the land comprises a productive run of pasture land, contained in good sized enclosures, suitable for easy field work and divided by traditional Cornish hedge-banks.  It is for the most part level or gently sloping interspersed with steep, wooded valleys.  Access around the land is excellent via the council maintained "no through road" which forms part of the approach and the excellent concrete entrance road as well as the well maintained farm tracks leading out from the farmyard.  
DIRECTIONS
From the A30, just west of Launceston at the Kennards House junction take the A395 signposted North Cornwall.  Follow this road for approximately 10 miles to the T-junction with the main A39 turning right towards Bude.  Follow this road for around 6 miles to the village of Wainhouse Corner and continue for a further one mile turning right where signposted Jacobstow. Follow this minor road for around 3/4 of a mile taking the first left hand turn signposted Week St Mary.  Continue on this road passing over the stream and up the hill on the opposite side taking the first right hand turn opposite the pink cottage, Little Dinnicombe.  This road will lead to the entrance drive to Sudcott Park.  

 IMPORTANT NOTICE
There is a Section 106 Agreement in place restricting the occupation of the house to those connected with Agriculture or forestry and preventing the sub-division of the whole farm.  A copy of this Agreement is available from the agents upon request.
