Full description


Partly converted and with potential to redevelop and provide further dwellings. Alternatively huge scope to create an amazing individual home.
Further traditional outbuildings with potential. Enclosed paddock. In all approximately three acres.

The barns at Killiganoon Farm are arguably one of the most impressive range of old farm buildings in the Truro area. Symmetrical projecting single storey wings to a fabulous long rectangular structure form a classic U-shape of impressive proportions including splendid window and door brick arches with impressive granite reveals and quoins. A hipped roof adds to the aesthetic appeal of the building and white small pane windows and doors are a perfect complement to the natural stone walls. Another notable feature are the substantial cut granite buttresses, each individually created. A date stone set in the side elevations suggest the barn was originally built in 1858.

The property stands at the end of an unmade lane and faces due south enjoying uninterrupted views over its own land to dense woodland in the far distance. Killiganoon Farm is no longer a working farm and was originally the home farm for Killiganoon which in its day was a very large and important estate split up in the 1980's. One of the neighbouring properties is Killiganoon Manor and the immediate neighbour was the original farmhouse.

Killiganoon Farm was purchased by the current owners approximately thirty three years ago. The barn has independent entrances at the front and rear and surprisingly only half the barn has been converted although the remaining half had a replacement roof at the same time and is ripe for development. Planning permission (planning ref: PA16/02835) has been granted to convert this section into an independent four bedroom house with reverse level accommodation. There are numerous options for prospective purchasers and whilst the barn would make a fabulous individual home there is potential to split and create separate homes if required. In addition to the main barn there are two single storey wings, one currently used as a triple car port which forms part of the new planning permission and the other as a garage/workshop. Currently the accommodation includes four bedrooms, lounge/dining room, kitchen and bathroom on the first floor with utlity, snooker room, sitting room and shower room downstairs. As previously mentioned half of this main barn is unconverted with planning permission. Further outbuildings include a two storey traditional barn with hipped roof 39'7" x 13'8", open fronted double height stone barn 24' x 12' and a further dilapidated single storey stone barn. The front and rear gardens also have independent driveways providing plenty of parking and the adjoining paddock is perfect for equestrian use or hobby farming. In total the grounds extend to approximately 3 acres.

Killiganoon is located part way between Truro and Falmouth on the outskirts of Carnon Downs and within a short distance of the creekside hamlets of Point and Penpol. Carnon Downs has an excellent range of village facilities including post office, food store, chapel, village hall, doctors surgery and regular bus service to Truro and Falmouth. On the edge of the village is a golf course and the area is well placed for easy access to the creek and sailing facilities of the Fal Estuary. The city of Truro is approximately four to five miles away and has a fine shopping centre with many national multiples as well as a main line railway link to London (Paddington).
