Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Country meets coastal; an impressive and versatile barn conversion surrounded by idyllic gardens located just outside the picturesque fishing village of Portloe.

Location

The hamlet of Treviskey, a few dwellings set in the countryside, is just above the village of Portloe on the Roseland Peninsula, with the matchless Cornish coastline and some of the best beaches in the county within easy reach. The golden sands of Carne Beach are around three miles away, and Portholland Beach and Caerhays Beach with its castle are both nearby.

Description

Olive Tree Barn was converted from the old farm buildings of Treviskey Farm. The house is filled with great character and charm, with traditional stone walls hung with wisteria beneath a Delabole slate roof and eye-catching features in almost every room. The property is surrounded by landscaped gardens, with mature olive trees planted to the north with a Mediterranean-inspired courtyard garden to the south.

The kitchen has a high ceiling supported by exposed timbers and a woodburner in the fireplace beneath a timber lintel. A Mercury gas-fired range cooker is set in the kitchen, which is served by a tiled larder off the hallway. There is a pretty dining room with exposed beams beside the kitchen. Beyond that, the 28' sitting room is a wonderful entertaining and living space, defined by a slate fireplace with a gas fire and exposed beams; French doors lead to the gardens and a dual-aspect office.

The bedroom accommodation is arranged over the ground and first floors. The master suite on the first floor is accessed via its own staircase. The bedroom is large, with dual aspects and a striking vaulted ceiling. An en suite bathroom has a separate shower and benefits from the same high ceilings. The second double bedroom on the ground floor is serviced by the family bathroom.

ANNEXE

The potential annexe is situated just off the sitting room and could be easily separated from the main accommodation, or further integrated in to the main house. A spacious living room includes an area with a sink which would suit conversion to a galley kitchen and overlooks the central courtyard. A bedroom off the living room is served by a shower room and there is a large bedroom space on the first floor.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

The gardens surround the house and are set out in two well-defined sections. To the south a hard-landscaped courtyard garden heavily influenced by the Mediterranean is set around olive trees and palms, with mature bamboo providing complete privacy. Ornamental stone installations lend character and texture, while the aspect ensures that this area of the garden catches the sun.

To the north and east of the house a lawned area is laid out as an olive grove with mature olive trees in raised beds between areas of lawn. This area overlooks the fields beyond and is a rural contrast to the sculpted gardens to the south.

A gated drive runs between the spacious, heated garage and main house, providing ample parking.

SERVICES

Mains water and electricity. Private drainage, oil fired central heating. Calor gas bottle to service the fire and cooker.
