A striking contemporary barn conversion with great scope, set in a rural position with approaching one and a half acres of grounds. 3 Reception rooms, 3 bedrooms (1 en-suite). Flexibly arranged accommodation. Wonderful views. Extensive grounds. EPC Band E.

Situation - Nestling in a glorious rural position, The Barn Loft is one of three properties which originally formed part of Trethew Farm and are now approached over a shared unmade driveway.
Approximately one mile from the pretty rural village of Lanlivery, The Barn Loft enjoys wonderful far-reaching pastoral views and is surrounded by a number of picturesque walks. The village offers a range of local facilities including The Crown Inn, St. Brevita Parish Church, a primary school and village hall.
Around three miles distant is the ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel which boasts an array of interesting shops together with pubs and restaurants. For sailing enthusiasts, the picturesque waterside town of Fowey is approximately 61/2 miles distant and benefits from a range of maritime facilities including The Royal Fowey Yacht Club. Renowned for its bustling harbour, this unspoilt estuary town is a haven for sailors with regular racing during summer months.
There is a mainline railway station at Lostwithiel whilst the A30 trunk road is a short drive.

The Property - Converted in the 1990s and latterly extended, this striking country home was designed by the Vendors husband, a renowned architect who knew Trethew extremely well having lived in both the farmhouse and converted the adjacent mill.
Blending individual contemporary style with the traditional features of the original stone barn, the property offers comfortable accommodation whilst having significant scope for re-modelling. Currently, the property is loosely arranged in three separate living areas but would equally make a fabulous large residence with vaulted reception rooms that include the splendid upper floor living area complete with full height glazed apexed entrance opening onto the covered veranda, which in turn overlooks the delightful Japanese inspired garden.
There are three bedrooms, the master benefiting from en-suite facilities and a balcony overlooking the garden, together with a central music room and impressive open-plan studio with 11'7" high vaulted ceiling.

Outside - The Barn Loft itself stands amidst landscaped gardens that have a Japanese inspiration featuring a number of specimen plants and trees, including Japanese acer, indian bean tree, bamboo and tree ferns. The front garden has seating areas and a pond with water feature whilst to the rear are a number of beds. Adjacent to the shared driveway is an area of lawn together with off road parking for around three vehicles.
A short walk from the property is an area of amenity land and woodland extending to just over one acre or thereabouts.
