Full description

A MAGNIFICENT HOME WITH 12 ACRES OF LAND Tucked away and facing south in a landscape of rolling farmland and with 12 acres of its own land for privacy and protection. Originally a massive barn range of considerable architectural merit and almost reminiscent of an Elizabethan Manor. Beautifully renovated and in pristine condition, ready to move into.

General Comments And Situation - The barn at Tredinnick is arguably one of the most impressive buildings in the Truro to St. Austell area. Built in 1831, the building has symmetrical projecting wings to a long rectangular structure to form a classic "U" shape of impressive proportions, all of which faces due south enjoying uninterrupted views over its own land to undulating countryside beyond. The building has been sympathetically converted and restored and is now a lovely home affording very spacious family size accommodation fitted throughout on a contemporary theme and with every modern convenience. It is ideal for family living.

The property stands at the end of a short unmade farm lane. Tredinnick is no longer a working farm and indeed "Tredinnick Barns" now comprises the majority of the traditional buildings and with just the original farmhouse as the only neighbour. It lies almost midway between the villages of Grampound and Grampound Road and hence shops for daily needs are easily accessible whilst Truro and St. Austell offer a full range of shopping facilities at eight miles and seven miles respectively. There is a good range of Private and State Schools in the area, both Truro and St. Austell offer an intercity rail link to London (Paddington). Tredinnick is also about a ten minute drive from the A30 and therefore enjoys easy access to all parts of the county including both north and south Cornish coasts.

The Dwelling - The structure of Tredinnick Barn is notable for its mellow stone elevations with contrasting cut granite window arches, matching reveals, quoins and complementing white painted casement windows. A hipped roof relaid with natural slate adds to its aesthetic appeal and whilst the front elevation is the dominant aspect the single storey former "horse engine" structure at the rear of the building is equally impressive. The internal accommodation now boasts a wonderful array of living space with plenty of light and a modern versatile arrangement of rooms. Windows are double glazed, there is a comprehensive system of central heating (underfloor throughout) oak laminate and tiled floors predominate and facilities for kitchen, bath and shower rooms are equipped and fitted to a high standard.

Outside - The property is approached along an unmade but hard surface private lane which accesses just two properties and Tredinnick Barn being in prime position at the end of the lane. Two five bar vehicular gates open onto a gravelled driveway that runs along the front of the house and around to one side. Alongside the entrance there is access to a very attractive former CART HOUSE 37' x 21' providing four vehicular bays divided by granite supporting pillars and with high pitch vaulted roof, concreted floor with external power points and circuit breakers.

The gravelled driveway and hard-standing area facilitates parking for numerous vehicles.

At the far end of the driveway a lane continues to a further single STOREY BARN 40'5" x 21' being open fronted with metal pillar supports and providing four bays previously used for stabling and livestock.

To the front of Tredinnick Barn there is a paved terrace that provides access to all the doors in the front elevation and this area faces virtually due south ensuring warmth and shelter throughout the day. There are four lights illuminating the front courtyard and there is an attractive pitched roof overhang to the central french windows. Sweeping areas of lawn surround the building and at the rear a flight of steps with outside lantern lights provide access to a more secluded area again laid to grass and enclosed with Cornish hedges. In one corner a wooden shed houses the water filtration and purification equipment as well as water pressure adjustment pump. Beside this are the oil and water storage tanks. There are several fruit trees and plenty of scope for further landscaping and planting.

Beyond the front garden there is a paddock enclosed by post and rail fencing whilst to the rear of Tredinnick Barn there is a large level field which has direct access to the minor country road connecting Grampound and Grampound Road. This field has most recently been let to a local farmer for arable cropping but can easily be reseeded and used for equestrian or livestock grazing. The whole site extends to 12 acres or thereabouts.
