Full description

An exceptional opportunity to acquire and realise the tremendous potential of converting (planning reference 1/0695/2014/FUL - Torridge District Council) this historic (not listed) stone/slate barn into a stunning and highly individual, detached 4 bedroom (3 en-suite) residence set in approaching 1.25 acres. Nestling in this little known rural setting, yet only 2 miles from the friendly market town of Holsworthy.

History - Bude Harbour & Canal Company - After many years of planning and feasibility studies in 1819, the Bude Harbour & Canal Company was formed. Work commenced in July of that year, and 35.5 miles of canal were eventually completed in 1825. The main line ran from Bude to Blagdonmoor Wharf with a branch from Red Post to Druxton Wharf near Launceston, along with a "feeder arm" from Lower Tamar Lake which supplied the canal with water. Interestingly, its construction and operation was solely for the transporting of lime rich sand to improve the soil of the local farms. As may be anticipated with the event of the railway network and new chemical fertilisers, the canal fell into gradual decline and by the late 1900's the end was in sight. Today, intriguing remnants of the canal can be found along the old routes, and the barn at Blagdonmoor Wharf is a great example of one of the former canal buildings.

The Land - The whole property approaches 1.25 acres. The immediate grounds offer huge landscaping potential and as seen in the architect's drawings, from a decked patio, a small bridge links up to a very pleasant seating area. Immediately to the South West of the barn, a small steam divides a rough marshy area and paddock.
