Tenure: Freehold

Colrose Farm is one of the oldest properties in this small hamlet and dates back many hundreds of years with a wealth of character featuring throughout the accommodation. It has been in the same ownership for some 7 years and it is clear that over the years it has been lovingly cared for. The most recent addition was some 12 years ago when a sympathetically added two storey extension created a large farmhouse style kitchen/ dining room which is the hub of the house with a bedroom and bathroom above. There is plenty of reception space and five bedrooms and therefore ideal for a large family. Externally there are a large number of outbuildings including a substantial two storey barn which has a wealth of potential to be converted into accommodation subject to obtaining all necessary consents. It could be potentially used to derive an income. For those who work from home the external studio is fitted out as an office. A further range of outbuildings complement the large and productive gardens which along with the paddock has fine rural views. The total plot extends to in the region of 2.7 acres. We believe that the property has a great deal to offer and we have no hesitation in recommending an internal inspection as soon as possible.

Beyond the attractive stone exterior lies the spacious accommodation which has a wealth of character with the welcoming 'L' shaped reception hall having a lovely flagstone floor and the main staircase which ascends to the first floor. There are two main reception rooms including the sitting room which is positioned at the oldest end of the property. It has a lovely slate fireplace with inset wood burner and an exposed stone wall. The larger lounge has a feature fireplace also and has granite struts and a wooden mantle with again a wood burner inset. It has access to the second staircase and the useful boot room which leads to the rear porch and ground floor WC. The triple aspect farmhouse style kitchen/dining room is effectively the day to day living room and has a traditional range of country style units with slate worktops. It features a double Belfast style sink unit and Included in the sale is a double electric cooker, fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. The main focal point of the room is the oil fired Aga which gently warms the room and stays on a low heat virtually all year round. There is room for a good sized table, modern down lighting and double doors which access the patio area. A useful study and a utility room complete this level of accommodation.

On the first floor are five bedrooms which are all able to accommodate a double bed. There is a door in bedroom five linking the two sections of the first floor together. The master bedroom is dual aspect and has built in wardrobes. It could be possible to let one side of the first floor on a bed and breakfast basis as each side has its own high quality modern bathroom and private staircase. The arrangement of accommodation would suit a large multi-generational family. There are lovely oak internal latched doors, beamed ceilings, exposed stone walling, wall lights and deep sills. Colrose Farm has many modern comforts such as oil fired central heating and super-fast fibre broadband connected to the property.

The property has a most attractive meandering pedestrian path accessing the front door and is also approached by a vehicular gate at the rear which opens into the large gravelled driveway which has off road parking and room for turning for many vehicles. Within the rear courtyard there is a very large two storey stone barn which is currently used for storage and hobbies with two mezzanine areas at each end. It should be noted that it could well be possible to convert the barn subject to obtaining all necessary consents into accommodation ancillary to the main house. In addition the former detached and attractive double garage has been converted into a studio which sub divides into a home office well fitted out having broadband connected. The other half is a storage area with sink. A further outbuilding adjacent to the side patio consists of a good sized workshop/store.

The grounds consist of a formal lawned garden which is well established, enclosed and private. The patio area is a great place to enjoy outside dining during the warmer months. Formal gardeners will be delighted with the large potting shed, greenhouse and the variety of vegetable beds and an area suitable to erect a poly tunnel. There is an orchard stocked with a selection of fruit trees to include apple, pear and plum and at the side a selection of soft fruits. Equestrian enthusiasts will welcome the stable block which has two loose boxes and a machinery store and a large paddock for grazing. A large chicken run is also included in the sale. The main field has been used for recreational and sport activities but could be tailored to suit a buyer's needs. The whole area has a pleasant view overlooking the surrounding farmland and the beautiful countryside which enriches this lovely and convenient setting.

Colrose Farm is located within the hamlet of Illand within a few miles of the villages of Coads Green and Lewannick. Coads Green has a County Primary School and Lewannick a Sub Post Office/General Store a further County Primary School, Parish Church, Doctors Surgery and Public House.
