Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Converted in the early to mid 1990's the present owners have done a fantastic job in converting a beautiful country home which boasts gardens and approximately 4.6 acre paddock, a large timber outbuilding, and comfortable five bedroom (one en-suite) accommodation.

The small barn adjacent to the property is in good condition and has potential to be used for ancillary accommodation.

The barn has highly versatile accommodation which is well presented and could be utilised in many different ways. The configuration of the layout means that it could be easily used for an annexe or for dual family occupation.

The accommodation boasts a superb lounge featuring exposed stone walls, and a Villager wood burner with a formal dining room featuring another fantastic stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a wealth of character features throughout the property and these include exposed floor boards, beamed ceilings, exposed stone features and wooden doors throughout.

Externally the garden and grounds enjoy a great deal of privacy and seclusion. The area to the immediate front of the barn is made up a concrete hard standing, providing ample off road parking and provides access to the gardens and grounds. The driveway runs around the large 12 metre x 12 metre timber outbuilding which has doors to the front and rear for access, providing ample room to park a caravan or motor home if required.

There is access from the hard standing into the land which measures 4.6 acres with the upper section being lawned and is a more formal area and enjoys some great views over the open countryside to the south. There is a ring fence and gate into the paddock, where the present owners keep sheep and would be suitable for a range of livestock for potential purchasers looking for the country life style. The paddock leads down to a small area to the very rear which borders onto a stream which the owners use to really "get away from it all" which is really private and tucked away.

The barn is situated in Broad Langdon, a tiny hamlet some five miles from the North Cornish Coast, approximately 2.5 miles away the village of Wainhouse Corner which benefits for day to day shopping, part-time post office, petrol filling station and public house. The popular village of Crackington haven with a lovely cove and access to the cliff top walks is a further 3 miles from here.

From Wainhouse Corner, Bude is approximately 8 miles to the North with a wide range of educational, recreational and commercial facilities including a Morrison's supermarket and inland Launceston is approximately 12 miles distant with a range of amenities and access onto the main A30 trunk road to West Cornwall or Exeter and the M5 in the opposite direction.

The neighbouring village of Jacobstow has a country primary school and places of worship.

All in all Dovedale Cottage is a superb versatile home enjoying a fantastic rural location and a viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate all the property has to offer.
