Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The property is set in a delightful rural position well away from main roads and accessed from a quiet lane off the Old Coach Road at Lanivet. The property is within easy access of the main A30 trunk road. The village of Lanivet is only a short drive away and the larger towns are around five miles to the east and around 8 miles to the north. Within easy reach are several National Trust gardens and properties including Lanhydrock to the east with its delightful gardens and wooded parkland bordering onto the River Fowey.

Being set in the heart of the country the property is approximately ten minutes' drive to Bodmin Parkway mainline railway station which links to London Paddington Station and Penzance. The contrasting and beautiful scenery of the north and south Cornish coasts are each about twenty minutes' drive away and Newquay Cornwall Airport with its increasing levels of national and international flight connections is about twenty minutes' drive to the west. Exeter with its easy access to the M5 is just less than an hour's drive away to the east and the cathedral city of Truro, which boasts a comprehensive range of retail and leisure amenities, together with the county's leading educational facilities, is only a forty minute drive away.

Higher Rosewarrick Farm has been greatly extended and fully renovated offering spacious family accommodation. There is a good mix of old and new with the original farmhouse retaining lots of period character and the newer part offering spacious contemporary living.

The front door opens into the spacious entrance hall which has slate tiled flooring and a large double coat cupboard and a separate cloakroom with w.c. and wash hand basin. A custom made turned oak staircase leads to the first floor. Double doors to one side open into the impressive large living/dining room which is triple aspect and has French doors at one end out to a decked seating area. The significant features of this room are the local granite fireplace with slate hearth and inset cast iron wood burning stove and the reclaimed exposed floorboards.

To the other side of the entrance hall a door opens into the original farmhouse where the ground floor is all open plan providing an impressive kitchen and family area. The kitchen is fitted with farmhouse style panel cabinets and plumbing and space for a dishwasher.

There is a matching central island unit also with granite worktop, storage cupboards, wine racks and an electric oven (currently not used). Set into an old fireplace opening at one end is a large range cooker with five ring calor gas hob and double electric oven. The floor is laid with slate flagstones and a stable door opens to the side. A step leads up to the spacious family area which has stunning central stone and granite fireplace with magnificent raised slate hearth and Woodman double sided wood burner. Although this area is all open plan, it is undoubtedly the heart of the home whilst effortlessly signifying three distinct areas (kitchen, family room and breakfast room). Outside the kitchen door there is a further decked seating area and a lean-to utility room which has a stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap and cupboards under, plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, oil fired central heating boiler and hot water storage cylinder.

The first floor landing is spacious with multi paned window to the front elevation. At the far end of the landing a door opens to a lobby with a door at either end opening to bedrooms one and two in the original farmhouse. The master bedroom is a beautiful room with a high vaulted ceiling and exposed beams and windows to either side. A couple of steps lead up to the spacious en-suite bathroom which has a roll top bath with central taps, w.c., wash hand basin and heated towel rail. Bedroom two has high ceilings almost identical in design to the master bedroom, however, the exposed A-frame timbers are currently covered by current owners but could easily be taken back to original.

To the other end of the landing there are two further good sized bedrooms, The family shower room with heating under the slate tiled floor is beautifully fitted with a large fully tiled walk-in shower with two shower fittings in addition to the w.c, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and built in cupboard.

The property is approached through a five bar gate from the lane and down a winding driveway which leads around to a large parking area to the front of the property. The detached garage has two remotely operated up and over doors, power and lights laid on and loft storage.

The private gardens wrap around the house and are well enclosed by mature hedging and laid to lawn. In the bottom corner there is a chicken coop and run and there are two decked seating areas adjoining the property.

On the far side of the house behind the utility room there is a large timber woodshed, partitioned in the middle and with double doors to the front. One side is used for wood and the other houses the pump, filters and storage tank for the private water supply. Alongside the woodshed is the oil storage tank which has recently been replaced.

To one side of the garden, near the double garage is a detached timber built studio which is also finished to a high quality. This has double doors to the front and power and light laid on.

Mains electricity, private water and drainage. Oil fired central heating.
