The Property
Originally Part of a group of barns associated with Tresmaine Farm, the barns have been sympathetically converted to provide two detached properties set either side of an attractive courtyard. The versatile accommodation has been thoughtfully considered and retains much of its original character combined with an ease of living as associated with modern properties with wooden double glazed windows and doors, oil fired central heating, fitted kitchens and modern bathroom suites.

The unique accommodation comprises:

Beeches Barn: entrance lobby, open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, to ground floor; three bedrooms and bathroom, to first floor.

Holly Barn: entrance lobby, kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms and bathroom, to ground floor; sitting room, to first floor.

The grounds are in excess of a third of an acre and combine private seating and lawn areas, with an enclosed courtyard and extensive off-road parking.

Located at the end of a no through road and bordered by pasture land on two sides, the property occupies an idyllic rural position affording panoramic views over rolling Cornish countryside with Bodmin Moor as a backdrop.

The popular and pretty village of Altarnun is approximately half a mile away, which has one of Cornwall's six village greens and has won 'Best Kept Village' on numerous occasions. The parish in area is the largest in Cornwall, occupying over 15,0000 acres and nestles in the valley of Penpont Water. A tributary of the River Inny runs through the village, crossed by a 15th Century pack Horse Bridge. The parish Church of St Nonna sits peacefully beside the river, also known as the 'Cathedral of the Moor', built largely in the 15th Century and supporting a tower 109ft high. 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.

Nearby Launceston is the ancient capital of Cornwall and boasts a number of historical buildings including the Norman castle and Victorian Guildhall and Town Hall. There is a wide variety of shopping available both in the town centre and the out of town retail park (both independently and nationally owned) together with a range of service businesses, medical facilities and schooling at both primary and secondary levels (private and state sector). The town has a good sports centre, many clubs and societies catering for a wide variety of interests and two 18 hole golf courses within 3 miles.

From the courtyard, a gravelled return runs alongside Beeches Barn with a well stocked raised flower/shrub bed and feature pond creating a divide between the parking area and the property.

The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with the rear boundary being of a Cornish bank, which backs directly onto pasture land.
