A peaceful location ideal for those looking for a home and income opportunity, multi-generational living, a smallholding or a more self-sufficient lifestyle. 3 bedroom main house with 1 bedroom ground floor studio. 3 holiday cottages (2 with residential permission), stables and outbuildings. In all about 13.1 acres. EPC Band E.

Introduction - The property is in a glorious rural setting just 3 miles from the South Cornwall coast. Set in its own 13 acres of land and with far reaching views, this peaceful location is ideal for those looking for a home and income opportunity, multi-generational living, a smallholding or a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

There is a three bedroom farmhouse with studio apartment and three cottages (two with residential consent) currently used for holiday letting. The property benefits from excellent equestrian facilities and an extensive range of outbuildings.

Situation - The property is privately positioned in a fine location on the edge of the popular and thriving rural village of Pelynt with its village stores, primary school, restaurant pub and garage. Looe (4 miles) is divided by the river creating East and West Looe and has a fine sandy beach and attractive fishing harbour. The town offers a wide range of activities including excellent bathing, good yachting and river and sea trips as well as a wide range of shops for day to day needs.

The market town of Liskeard (8 miles) has a large range of shopping facilities and a mainline railway station with connections to London. The county town of Truro is 34 miles away whilst Plymouth (24 miles) has extensive shopping facilities, the historic Barbican district and the National Marine Aquarium. The Cornwall AONB lies a short distance to the south with its unspoilt coastal scenery, hidden coves and creeks, with various areas in the ownership of The National Trust. Nearby, Polperro, Polruan/Fowey and Looe are picturesque, each with their own harbours and fishing fleets. The deep waters of the
Fowey estuary are well known to the sailing fraternity. There are nearby golf courses, including St Mellion.

Looe has a branchline railway providing a useful commuting link via mainline trains at Liskeard (London Paddington 3½ hours). Plymouth offers access to cross channel ferry services and there are airports at Newquay and Exeter.

The Farmhouse - The farmhouse nestles between the cottages and is set over three floors. It was originally part of a range of buildings associated with a Mill. From the entrance hall there are doors to the sitting room with beamed ceiling, exposed stone built chimney with log burner. The large living/dining room is dual aspect with superb views out over the gardens and the refitted
kitchen offers an extensive range of wall and floor cupboards with space for range cooker and fridge freezer. Double doors lead to a large terrace and gardens beyond.

On the first floor are 3 bedrooms with the dual aspect master bedroom also benefiting from lovely views. There is a family bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, sink and WC.

On the lower ground floor there is a studio apartment that can be accessed via a staircase from the dining room or from the courtyard. There is an open plan sitting room/bedroom with ensuite shower room and a utility room.

The Cottages - The cottages are promoted primarily via the owners website and are let to suit the owners lifestyle. Trading figures can be made available to interested parties after a viewing. In brief the cottages comprise:

Wheel Cottage (Sleeps 2) - This former wheel house building was converted in 2016 into a spacious and very well-appointed holiday cottage. This upside down property has a large bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and on the first floor is an open plan living room
(with wood burning stove)/kitchen/dining room. This property has holiday use permission only.

Mill Cottage (Sleeps Up To 5) - This is the largest cottage and was originally the Millers home. With lovely views it offers a cosy living room with wood burner, well equipped kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms (one double and one triple room) on the first floor. There is a private walled terrace to the front.

Barn Cottage (Sleeps 2) - Believed to have originally been a mill workers home, this is now a one bedroom, upside down cottage with a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor. From the open plan living room (with wood burner)/kitchen/dining room there are far reaching countryside views.

The Stables And Outbuildings - There are 4 stables and associated tack and store rooms overlooking a yard that are currently let on a DIY livery basis. To the rear of the stables are an extensive range of enclosed and open fronted storage barns. Inside one of these barns are the original shower and toilet facilities from when there was a campsite on the farm. A new owner may wish to explore this option further. A substantial 40' x 24' open front, box profile sheet building with concrete pad provides further storage. To the side of Barn Cottage there is a useful, single storey workshop with power and windows overlooking the gardens and pond. To the west of Wheel Cottage is a further two storey stone building which is currently used as an animal shelter on the ground floor and for storage above. There may be potential to develop this further subject to obtaining the relevant consents.

The Land And Gardens - The majority of the 13.1 acres is pasture and is currently used for equestrian and livestock purposes. With a poly tunnel, greenhouse, small orchard and vegetable beds already in place, this is perfect for those interested in a small holding or who are perhaps working towards being self-sufficient.

To the rear of the farmhouse and cottages are gardens with mature planting and a number of BBQ areas and seating from where the far reaching views can be enjoyed. There are streams to three borders of the land and ponds to the front and side of the farmhouse and holiday cottages.

Services - Mains water, mains electricity, oil-fired central heating in the farmhouse and cottages, private drainage.
