PROPERTY DESCRIPTION & VENDORS COMMENTS This spacious farmhouse was built up from a 3 foot barn wall by the current owner around 30 years ago, and has become the setting for countless wonderful memories in the happy years spent there since. "The house is extremely special and unique" says the owner, "with stunning views of the surrounding Cornish countryside. Everyone who comes to the house comments on its beautiful setting, hidden away in the hillside. It is fantastically quiet and secluded, and extremely picturesque."

With three double bedrooms, the living space in this semi detached farmhouse is generous, and is further supplemented by a separate one bedroom cabin at the end of the garden, which would serve well as a self contained annexe for tenanting or a granny flat. The main house is traditional in décor, with quirky detailing such as stone wall fire surrounds and thick slate windowsills. It is evident that the owner has put their heart and soul into this building, right up until the recent bathroom restoration with brand new double shower, bath and tiling.

The extensive gardens, which run from the front of the main house alongside the long driveway to the cabin area, are beautifully landscaped, mostly laid to lawn yet punctuated with shrubs and trees. "There are rhododendrons, eucalyptus and bamboo - an unusual selection of beautiful plants - as well as two little ponds outside the main house," says the owner, "not to mention the spectacular koi carp pond. There is even a stream with fishing rights at the bottom of the garden for angling enthusiasts, as well as plenty of land for horses."

The outside space stretches over an impressive 5 acres, featuring several outbuildings, stables, aviaries & a one bedroom detached cabin. "There are aviaries in the outbuildings too, which would be ideal for somebody who wants to keep birds, or even to run a kennels or cattery from the property" says the owner. There is also a double garage, with a mechanics pit for working underneath a vehicle, where the owner's son used to practice his passion for restoring old American cars. A large driveway provides plenty of parking, while electric gates and CCTV cameras ensure exemplary security.

Favourite room

"The large kitchen is lovely, but the favourite room has to be the spacious living room with a wood burner sitting in a stone surround."

What will we miss most

"The views and the secluded location will be greatly missed. It is just a gorgeous place to be, especially in summer, when all you can see or hear are the birds and wildlife. It is truly idyllic."

Other favourite feature

"The property has its own borehole providing a self-sufficient water supply, so there are no water bills."

Memorable event

"The house is just perfect at Christmas time, large enough for the whole family to gather round the kitchen or front room table. The huge garden works brilliantly for barbecues in summertime." 

AREA DESCRIPTION The location of the property is perfectly peaceful, yet close to local amenities. "The house is 5 minutes' drive from Pensilva," says the owner, "with its pub, shops, function centre and sports hall, and within a few minutes more you can take a stunning walk on the lovely moorland. Callington town is also just 10 minutes drive away down pretty country lanes."
