Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Old Byre House is an unlisted 18th Century Farmhouse set in a secluded and peaceful hamlet.
The current owners completed the renovation of this property to create a flexible and beautiful family home, whilst retaining some original features and a wealth of exposed beams.

The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a double master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. The stair case leads to the first floor which takes you directly to the dining room. This room boasts well maintained features including a vaulted beamed ceiling and French doors. Through an opening is the sitting room, with a beamed ceiling, window seat and a log burner set in a rustic oak surround. On the same floor, to the right of the dining room, is the kitchen/breakfast room with an oil fired Aga, sawn oak flooring and granite work surfaces with an antique pine dresser which is within the sale.

Also on the first floor are two double bedrooms, one of which has a balcony with stepped access to the garden. Both bedrooms are an excellent size. There is also a family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and separate shower.

From the outside, there is a separate entrance to the utility room which has a shower room and WC, also with a gas hob and tiled flooring. There is also an office, which has potential to be turned into a second annex, subject to relevant planning permission.

The village of Manaccan is located in one of the most picturesque parts of Cornwall, far away from the ‘madding crowd’ but close to some of the most stunning unspoilt beaches and creeks in the country. The village offers a delightful thatched New Inn public house, primary school, restaurant and Norman church. Within driving distance are the beaches of Flushing Cove and Gillan Cove and it is also within a mile of the renowned Helford River, which alongside Falmouth Bay and the Fal Estuary, offers some of the finest sailing waters in the United Kingdom.

The historic market town of Helston, approximately 11 miles away, stands as the gateway to the Lizard peninsula, mainland Britain’s most southerly point. Stocked with a range of amenities the town offers a range of shops, cafes, restaurants, public houses and a cinema.

The cathedral city of Truro, approximately 25 miles away, has the widest range of facilities in Cornwall including supermarkets, excellent business opportunities, first class shopping, a wide range of highly regarded restaurants and bars, a cinema, theatre and exceptional state and private schooling. Truro is also an historic and attractive city with a mix of Georgian and Victorian properties lining its cobbled streets. There is a mainline railway station at Truro with direct links to London Paddington taking around 4½ hours, whilst road access is excellent to the A30 expressway which links to the motorway network at Exeter. Newquay Airport, at St Mawgan, offers flights to both London and other internal and international destinations.

Old Byre House is approached off a lane, through wooden gates, onto a large gravel parking and turning area to the side of the house. A gravel path to the right of the house leads to an integral one bedroom annex which is self-contained with its own entrance, kitchenette and shower room. This is perfect for family stays, holiday rentals/Airbnb.

The left of the drive is the vegetable plot, which includes a poly tunnel, and currently grows a variety of soft fruit bushes.

As you walk round the back of the house you come across the part of the garden which has a wealth of exotic plants and trees and could be described as ‘plantsmans garden’, which includes a gravelled area, perfect for ‘Alfresco dining’ and parties. As you go on, there is a ‘mini-orchard’ which contains Russet, Bramley, Pear and Cornish Apple trees. From there you will find there is a small paddock currently used for grazing. Through the paddock is a raised decking and summerhouse with panoramic views over Falmouth Bay, great for BBQ’s and Sundowners.
