Property description

*** Video Tour Available ***

Enjoying a fantastic view towards Roughtor is this smallholding with circa 2 acres of pastureland offering tremendous scope. The farmhouse itself offers 3/4 bedrooms and has an abundance of character throughout plus a landscaped garden. The property is within walking distance of open moorland.

You approach the property into a hallway with access to the ground floor accommodation. The front aspect sitting room is a very generous size and has a fireplace at either end, one of which has a multifuel wood burner. There are original flagstones showing the age of the property. Adjoining the sitting room is an office plus drawing room/bedroom both of which overlook the garden and land. Also leading off the hallway is a W/C. The open plan kitchen/dining room overlooks the garden and land with a view towards Roughtor. The dining area has ample space for a family dining table. The kitchen area has a range of eye and base level units plus an oil fired Rayburn. A door from the kitchen takes you out to the rear porch and garden. Further doors lead to a glazed passage which adjoins the utility room, garage and courtyard.

On the first floor are 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom is front aspect and has a built-in wardrobe, shower enclosure and separate W/C with wash hand basin. Bedroom 2 has a fantastic elevated view over the landscaped side garden. Finally, bedroom 3 is another double room used as a guest room. The family bathroom is a great size and has a matching 3 piece suite including a separate shower enclosure. 2 windows enjoy a view over the land towards Bodmin Moor.

The farmhouse is approached off a quiet parish road through a 5 bar gate onto a driveway. Adjoining the driveway is a well stocked and established garden with a variety of colour and interest throughout the year. At the end of the garden is a small paddock. To the rear of the property is a large patio area enjoying a far reaching view towards Bodmin Moor and Roughtor. There are flowerbeds to one side and a detached block built tack room. Adjoining the garden is a metal gate out to the gently sloping pasture paddock divided up by stock fencing into 4 separate enclosures, 2 of which have water troughs. At the bottom of the field is a block built field shelter. Behind a line of evergreen fir trees is a small parcel of land where there is a wildlife pond adjoining a small stream.

Adjoining the Farmhouse at either end are 2 single garages offering lots of storage. The property is within walking distance of Halvana Woods and of course the open moorlands of Bodmin Moor.

The property is situated in a most pleasant rural position which adjoins open moorland and nearby Havana Woods, as well as the larger villages of Altarnun and Five Lanes. Located on the flanks of Bodmin Moor , the popular and pretty village of Altarnun won 'Best Kept Village' on numerous occasions. A tributary of the River Inny runs through the village, crossed by a 15th Century pack horse bridge. Public Houses can be found at both Five Lanes, 'The Kings Head' (approx 0.6 miles) and on the edge of Altarnun, 'The Rising Sun' (approx 1.5 miles). The village also boasts a Post Office/general store and Community Primary School, all within walking distance of the property. The village offers good access to the A30 linking into Devon and West Cornwall with Launceston being the nearest town with a wide range of facilities, amenities and schooling.
