Brownspit Farmhouse enjoys a lovely, peaceful location in a tiny hamlet of just a handful of other properties, in the northern most parish in Cornwall, Morwenstow.

The parish benefits from an OFSTED rated 'outstanding' primary school, a well-respected public house, numerous coves including Duckpool and Marsland Mouth, rugged cliffs and the national trust owned Coombe Valley. There are superb coastal and inland walks to be enjoyed and the parish is one of the most picturesque parts of North Cornwall.

The self-contained village of Kilkhampton lies approximately 4 miles distant with a CO-OP, Premier Stores and Spar for day to day shopping plus a butchers and many more small businesses. Bude, the closest major town, is 5 miles further on and has the main comprehensive school, a choice of supermarkets, a rejuvenated canal area, plus two sandy beaches. Bideford, to the north, also has a range of excellent facilities and there is easy access onto the north Devon link road leading to the M5, Bristol and beyond.

The farmhouse has impressive features throughout including the unusual storm porch which has wooden slats and shutters and leads through to a lovely hallway with oak beams and a slate floor. Both main receptions rooms open from the hallway; the sitting room has an original Georgian wall which has been discovered and restored by the present owners to create a superb feature, with further enhancements of lime plastering, a wood burner and an oak floor which truly brings this room to life. The dining room has a slate floor, a fireplace and leads through to cosy snug with a feature fireplace and a tall south facing window increasing the amount of natural light.

The main hub of the home though, is the kitchen/dining room. Fitted with a range of high quality units with slate work surfaces it is a modern kitchen with a period feel and with chestnut flooring and a large patio window providing access to the deck, this sociable room has an abundance of afternoon light. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a generous tiled Utility/WC and a rear lobby.

On the first floor there are 4 beautiful bedrooms, 3 enjoying a southerly aspect, with the master, being situated at the rear, featuring a quality en-suite shower room with a large, slate tiled shower cubicle.

The owner has recently installed a Bio Mass boiler system to provide the central heating, housed in a custom built wood building at the very rear of the property. This provides an environmentally friendly and economic solution to providing warmth throughout this character property.

The quad garage/workshop measures 7.8m x 4.8m and has plenty of room for parking and also, subject to necessary planning consents, could be converted to an annex for a dependant relative. The front courtyard has plenty of room for turning and further parking.

The side lawn is of a good size, surrounded by mature trees and the passageway between the garage and the property leads to the garden to the rear that has a small lawn, shrubs and a lovely deck area enjoying the afternoon sun. There is a pedestrian path, at the very rear, for one near neighbour, which is fenced off.

There is a further small paddock and woodland area which is available be separate negotiation, which is accessed through the existing garden.

This magnificent farmhouse truly does need to be seen to be fully appreciated and is offered to the market with no onward chain.
