Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Planning permission for a private access lane and barn - the lane has now been granted and completed.

This is an ideal opportunity to acquire what we feel to be a most appealing, manageable and conveniently located registered small holding with the major benefit of an extended 6 bedroom modern home attached.

Our vendors advise that the land extends to just less than 3 acres approximately 2.97 acres comprising mainly of gently sloping fertile pasture so also lends itself well to equestrian purposes too and currently houses our vendors horse too. Our vendors have kept a variety of livestock including pigs, sheep and chickens on the land and there is significant opportunity to increase productivity for Brenn Golows new owners.

Carnkie itself it a most pleasant village with schools and local facilities nearby but its ease of access is further facilitated by its proximity to both Helston and Falmouth and with Truro approximately 14 miles away. Brenn Golow offers the opportunity to pursue a rural lifestyle without the isolation associated with some properties in the county.

The home itself has seen considerable change over the years with considerable work undertaken to both expand and improve the accommodation available and we are now left with a detached 6 bedroom plus property which offers considerable flexibility in terms of layout and the ability to perhaps accommodate a multi generation family in relative comfort.

In brief the accommodation comprises on the ground floor of an entrance porch, outstanding farmhouse style kitchen/diner, living room, two bedrooms and large family bathroom/wet room. The ground floor also boasts a self-contained annexe comprising of an En-suite bedroom and open plan living space incorporating its own kitchenette and French doors opening out onto the garden. A most welcome, readymade opportunity for use as a granny annexe or for teenagers, extended family or perhaps even as an additional income opportunity to be let for holiday use or similar. To the first floor can be found 3 further bedrooms incorporating a lovely master bedroom, family bathroom, study and a further useful study space.

In addition, attached to the main building is a substantial vehicle workshop area and further outhouses and stable on the pasture.

We feel this this is an exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial family home and acreage to practice smallholding.
