Small farm conveniently placed for the cathedral city of Truro and harbour town of Falmouth.

Location

Laity Farm is situated near the village of Ponsanooth, which is within easy and convenient driving distance of the University and harbour town of Falmouth. A rural and peaceful location, Laity Farm is surrounded by its own land. The nearby village of Ponsanooth has a strong community spirit with a highly regarded primary school, a pub, post office, chapel and church. The nearby historical nature reserve of Kennall Vale offers picturesque woodland walks with water falls and streams.

Description

Laity Farm is a fine example of a classic Victorian farmhouse with generous proportions and a traditional layout. The main entrance porch leads, via a part glazed door with the original feature glass, to the entrance hallway with traditional tessellated flooring.

There are two main reception rooms; the sitting room has an open outlook, a fireplace with a classically designed surround, ornate coving and exposed wooden floor boards. The dining room also boasts classic features with fitted bookshelves, and enjoys views over the formal gardens to the front. To the rear the dual aspect kitchen is centred around the reconditioned four oven AGA. There is a large utility room with flagstone flooring and a Belfast sink. Access to the rear of the property is via the boot room. A family bathroom completes the downstairs accommodation.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms with good dimensions. The master bedroom is located to the front of the house and enjoys a dual aspect and exposed wooden floor boards. The second bedroom is also located to the front and has an open fireplace with a reclaimed surround and views over the gardens to the ponds.

Two further bedrooms are located to the rear and enjoy views over the land and the countryside beyond. A further family bathroom serves all four bedrooms and has a roll top bath with beautiful views over the gardens and grounds.
