Full description

Now with a video tour, is this outstanding Georgian Farmhouse set in just under two acres; ideal for those of equine interests. The property also has the potential for a granny/teenage annex or holiday letting potential.  Sympathetically updated and modernised taking the age and character of the property into consideration.  With a fabulous fully fitted kitchen/family room which opens onto a rear courtyard.  We have included a floor plan which shows the potential to create a letting unit/annex utilising the property’s garage.  There are three reception rooms, all with period features; whilst upstairs there are four bedrooms (master en-suite) and a family bathroom.  Externally the farmhouse has pleasant gardens leading onto the land that goes with the sale, we understand from the vendors that additional land may become available.
Enjoying a lovely peaceful location in a tiny hamlet of just a handful of other properties, in the northern most parish in Cornwall, Mornwenstow.  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 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 four 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 some five 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.
All measurements are approximate.  There are numerous power points throughout.  None of the fittings have been tested by ourselves.
