Situation - Treskelly Farm consists of three barns and farmhouse, either available as a whole or in individual lots, it lies about 0.5 miles north-west of Polbathic Village and occupies a very private yet accessible south facing position. The village of Polbathic stands on a tributary of the River Lynher and has a pub and village hall. The nearby village of St Germans has sought after village facilities including a main line railway station (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours), providing a very useful commuting link, community shop, primary school, doctors' surgery, church, public house and a sailing club.
It is surrounded by some of the finest countryside in South West England and occupies a spectacular position with far reaching views, across the rolling and enormously picturesque landscape. The location enjoys excellent communications by rail (St Germans and Plymouth), road (M5 and A38) and air (Newquay and Exeter).
The South Cornish coastline offers some of the finest water sports and sailing in the country as well as many beautiful beaches including Seaton, Downderry and Whitsand Bay. The A38 trunk road, a few miles north, links with the M5 motorway at Exeter. Across the Tamar Bridge is the city of Plymouth which provides a full complement of retail, commercial and educational facilities.
St Germans is also home to the beautiful Port Eliot Estate with its fascinating parkland gardens; the house is now open to the public. A wide range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities are available at Saltash including a Waitrose store on the outskirts.
St Mellion International Golf Resort lies approx. 13 miles distant and the city of Plymouth lies within a relatively short commute and has an excellent shopping centre adjacent to the historic and beautiful waterfront areas of the Barbican and Hoe. Plymouth also has a ferry port with regular services to France and Northern Spain. The wide expanses and beaches of Whitsand and Looe Bay are only a short drive away.

Overview - This wonderful detached barn with planning permission for conversion, is set within half an acre of grounds, and will create a wonderful 3-bedroom family home extending to around 180m2 of accommodation.
This is an exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial period barn with consent for conversion to a fine family home. Barn 1 enjoys a South Facing vista, and is the barn located farthest to the east.
The site has been cleared and the access roads are in place ready for the commencement of works.

Description - This development opportunity forms part of a wider scheme with two further barns and a character farmhouse and barn in need of development. It provides a wealth of possibilities and would make a fine country residence, with the opportunity to create beautiful gardens and grounds, each barn having unique and uninterrupted rural views.
The Vendor has undertaken significant works to install a new access, thereby creating a good degree of separation between Lots, which complements the well proportioned design. Most of the redundant modern agricultural buildings have also been removed, including any obvious asbestos, thereby offering a project ready to begin.

Sympathetic design has been used to make use of existing openings and retain the character and charm of these traditional buildings.

Planning Permission - Planning permission was granted in June 2016 for change of use and conversion of traditional agricultural buildings to 3 dwellings and 1 garage PA16/03463 A copy of the plans and planning consent are available for inspection at the Agent's Plymouth Office or online by using the following weblink:
