This property has a secluded and peaceful setting at the end of a country lane in a popular area giving easy access to the world famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and also to many other parts of Cornwall. This makes it a fine base attracted to visitors and the horse rider alike.

LOCATION
These properties are located just below the village of Lanjeth and are surrounded by most appealing open countryside. The larger village of Trewoon is about one mile distant offering a public house, village post office and off licence as well as other facilities. The property is also about one and a half miles only from the village of St Mewan with its Primary School and Secondary School facilities are available in St Stephens about two miles away.

St Austell, the largest town in the county is about three miles drive only and just to the south will be found the beautiful coastline of the Cornish Riviera, the coastal village of Mevagissey and also Charlestown well known for its tall ships and often used as a film set for period productions.

The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Trewithen Gardens are all within seven miles distance. Cornwall Newquay Airport is located about eleven miles to the north.

THE PROPERTIES
The first property is the principal farmhouse. This very old residence is set in truly delightful and mature gardens which to the front comprise the Plantsman's garden with a vast choice of plants, shrubs and trees. Beyond the front lawn, this extends into a further garden area with two greenhouses and to the rear is a flag-stoned patio and area of mature shrubs beyond.

The property has been well renovated in recent years and has partial economy seven night storage heating and most windows are UPVC and double glazed.

On the ground floor the entrance hall has a staircase to the first floor and a built in under stair cupboard and to the left a dining room with its beamed ceiling and delightful outlook over the garden. To the right is the sitting room with its massive old open stone fireplace with large timber lintel over and recessed cabinets to each side with some glass shelved display areas. This room also has a lovely outlook over the garden. To the rear is a utility room with plumbing for an automatic washing machine and a further door leads into a cloakroom with a low level w.c. and wash hand basin.
The beautiful kitchen has been fully refurbished and re-fitted last year with a comprehensive range of hand built oak cabinets with the floor cabinets having granite worktops and incorporating a double ceramic sink. There is an integrated Siemens dishwasher and a beautiful large electric four oven Aga cooker in black. The kitchen is completed with a matching black Aga American fridge/freezer unit. The floor is finished in sandstone effect ceramic tiles and a double glazed door then leads to the rear court. A stable door from the rear of the hall then leads onto a covered way with a door opening onto an old store room and doors to each side, one leading to the enclosed rear garden.

On the first floor the principal bedroom has also recently been substantially refurbished and provided with an en-suite shower room having a large shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin, low level w.c. and electric heated towel rail/radiator. This bedroom has a pleasant outlook over the field to the rear. There are two further double bedrooms and one single bedroom and the family bathroom has a panelled bath, pedestal wash hand basin and low level w.c. There is also a built in airing cupboard enclosing the factory insulated hot water storage and immersion heater.

THE HOLIDAY COTTAGES
These two semi-detached cottages are presented in immaculate condition and were originally converted from an old laithe house believed to date back to the 1700s. Both cottages have open beamed ceilings and fireplaces with, for convenience, wood burner effect electric units and each cottage opens onto its own patio overlooking the Plantsman's garden.

The holiday maker will not be disappointed when staying in these properties of high quality which comprises first Cherry Cottage which has one single and one double bedroom, a bathroom, sitting room and kitchen and dining room. There is also a downstairs cloakroom and w.c.

Wisteria Cottage has one single and one double bedroom, a bathroom, sitting room with dining area and a separate kitchen. There is also a downstairs cloakroom and w.c.

Both cottages have oil fired central heating and have been successfully let through Farm and Cottage Holidays and are Four Star rated. We would be pleased to provide interested applicants information over the income received from the cottages.

THE BARNS, OTHER BUILDINGS AND LAND
Located opposite the cottages is the fine old stone built barn which has planning consent to convert into two further holiday units. Consent was granted in 2005 and part of the work has commenced on the buildings and inspected for early stages of Building Regulation approval.

The yard area, just to the left of the cottages, has a modern block of five loose boxes, a large open double pole barn and to the rear a well enclosed all weather ménage.

There is also an adapted static caravan providing two bedroom accommodation with planning consent for its occupation by the owners of the property or by their staff.

The bulk of the land is located just to the rear of the house and barn and is in four field enclosures in permanent pasture with some having water supply laid on. The whole of the land area including gardens and yard are in the region of 11.4 acres.
