DELIGHTFUL GRADE II LISTED FARMHOUSE AND 30 ACRES Fine range of traditional stone barns, outbuildings and land. Located at the end of a long private lane, well away from neighbouring properties just inland from the south Cornish coast. A genuine and totally unspoilt property with substantial barns offering development potential. In all approximately 30 acres.

General Comments And Location - Streets Farm is a handsome detached Grade II Listed stone farmhouse in a very private rural setting perfectly located at the end of a long lane surrounded by its own grounds. The farm lies within Gorran Parish and whilst seemingly remote and "miles from anywhere", it is less than a mile by footpath to the beach at Portmellon near Mevagissey. It is a totally unspoilt farm with a fabulous range of traditional stone outbuildings which have huge development potential. However it is a joy nowadays and a rarity to find a farmstead that has not been split up into various ownerships or had the farm buildings converted, Streets Farm is perfect for those looking for privacy. The whole property extends to 30 acres or thereabouts, the farmstead sits perfectly within a ringed fence and the land is conveniently split into seven fields enclosed within natural hedge boundaries. There are some fine coastal views from the land with sea glimpses from both floors at the rear of the house. In these days of increasing urbanisation it is rare to find a property so genuinely unspoilt and unique and hence Streets Farm will be of undoubted appeal to many discerning purchasers and especially those seeking peace and tranquillity.

The property lies just over a mile from the village of Gorran Churchtown , where there is an excellent primary school and the larger harbourside communities of Gorran Haven and Mevagissey are both less than two miles respectively. These communities afford a variety of local facilities for daily needs whilst St. Austell, home to the Eden project, lies about seven miles to the east and the city of Truro with its Cathedral and fine shopping centre is about fourteen miles (less than half an hours driving distance).

The whole area is recognised as being of great landscape value and there are a host of scenic attractions in the area including superb cliff top walks along the nearby (heritage) coastline. The famous Lost Gardens of Heligan are about three miles away and whilst Streets Farm is within a mile on foot to the beach at Portmellon there are a number of other beautiful sunny beaches in the area, the most notable being Porthluney at Caerhays and Hemmick near Gorran Haven.

History - Streets Farm and the outbuildings are thought to have been built around 1800. The house has attractive Cornish stone elevations and lighter Pentewan stone was used for the window surrounds and quoins and this was quarried from the village of Pentewan which is approximately six miles distant. At the far end of Streets Farm in a sheltered wooded setting is a dilapidated two storey stone barn which is thought to have been a dwelling at some time, the fireplace is still evident.

The House - The current owner has lived in the property since 1990 and has undertaken some careful restoration of the property including adding two front windows at ground floor level and sourced Pentewan stone to match in with the upstairs window surround. Oil fired central heating was installed as well as new electric and plumbing. Many windows have been replaced and are all in good working order. Many of the original features remain including old painted wooden doors, fireplaces and window shutters. All rooms are of a good proportion and the large Georgian windows afford plenty of natural light. The traditional stone farm buildings have remained unconverted but have been re-roofed, there is no planning permission for conversion at present but there is huge potential for holiday or ancillary accommodation. Most rooms enjoy fine views over the surrounding countryside with sea glimpses from the rear. An internal viewing is essential.
