Situation - The property is situated in a very private and secluded position at the end of a 0.73 mile long driveway. It is surrounded by its own land with no nearby neighbours, nestled in attractive Cornish countryside with far reaching views, approximately midway between the well serviced towns of Launceston and Bude. Both towns offer a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and health facilities, numerous local golf courses and sports clubs. Launceston provides mainly dual carriageway links to the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. Exeter offers a superb range of shopping facilities together with mainline train services to London Paddington, an international airport and access onto the national motorway network. The spectacular north Cornish coast is some 10 miles to the west offering numerous recreational opportunities whether it be cliff top walks or extensive sandy beaches. Alternatively nearby Dartmoor or Bodmin Moor offer a range of outdoor pursuits.

Features Of The Property - Kersworthy Farmhouse is a beautifully presented, Grade II Listed period farmhouse probably dating back to the late 16th Century. It is constructed of stone and cob walls under a slate roof. Having been lovingly renovated and restored over the years by the current vendor, the property successfully combines the charm, character and generous proportions associated with buildings of this age, yet with contemporary modern conveniences.
 
The comfortable accommodation briefly comprises: front door into impressive double height hallway with stairs to first floor and doors into many of the ground floor rooms, dining room with impressive slate floors and feature fireplace, dairy, kitchen with granite work surfaces over, oak mounted units, living room with feature fireplace, boot room with door to outside, utility room with slate floors and WC, stairs to study, family room with triple Aga within impressive inglenook fireplace with twin bread ovens, drawing room with inglenook fireplace and second fireplace, back hall, WC.
 
The first floor offers bedroom 1 laid out as a generous twin bedroom with Jack and Jill bathroom with white suite including bath with shower over, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail all under a light and airy vaulted ceiling. Bedroom 2 has a second Jack and Jill bathroom with suite comprising bath, WC and feature glass wash hand basin. Bedroom 3 occupied as the master bedroom has an airing cupboard and built in wardrobes. The family bathroom has a feature copper bath, oversized shower cubicle, WC, wash hand basin and timber floors. Bedrooms 4 and 5 have built in wardrobe and drawers.

Accessed from the snug room is a living room with a mezzanine loft above and whilst there are currently no water or drainage services this has potential to be converted into an annex taking advantage of its separate external access.

Buildings - To the rear of the farmhouse is a stunning mainly two storey brick built courtyard of barns that are currently used for stabling and storage. (Ground floor just over 4000 sq ft). These appear to offer potential for a range of uses subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
 
To the west of the farmhouse enjoying a quite private position, orientated away from the rest of the buildings, is a substantial stone and cob single storey linhay barn under a mainly slate roof. This appears to have potential for conversion to an attractive and substantial detached dwelling subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Once converted this will enjoy stunning westerly views over generally unspoilt farmland. There is potential to access this barn separately from the farm track that leads from the end of the driveway around the rest of the farmstead.
 
At the end of the driveway is a relatively narrow yet two storey stone and cob open fronted cart shed under a slate roof. This too appears to have potential for alternative uses subject to obtaining any necessary consents, in particular it may convert well to a small yet attractive detached dwelling overlooking the pasture land that runs right up to the back of it.
 
On the southern side of the farmhouse is another Grade II Listed detached building of stone construction under a slate roof and converted beautifully into a games barn incorporating a bar and decked balcony to the rear overlooking attractive gardens. On the ground floor below the games area is a garage and two stores.
 
Beyond the traditional courtyard is a substantial concrete portal framed barn (90m x 60m) with part soil, part concrete floor clad on four sides with several openings. There is a generous area of hardstanding around the barn together with sheep handling areas. Accessed separately from the end of the driveway is a two bay tin clad pole barn with a soil floor.

Land - The farmstead is surrounded by approximately 109.11 acres of generally, highly productive and gently undulating pasture land It is laid out in practically shaped and sized fields for modern farm machinery which are accessed off a practical central farm track. The northern and southern boundaries are bordered by two streams
