Full description

High Barn is an architecturally designed split level house, built in the 1980’s to a grand scale to take advantage of the stunning sea views overlooking Cadgwith Cove, less than half a mile from the sea.

Facing south over its five acre garden and apple orchard with a stable block, this high quality dwelling is approximately 4,000sq.ft.

High Barn has four large double bedrooms and a four car garage. There is also ample parking for many more cars, boats and caravans.

The house is situated on the edge of Ruan Minor, a quaint village on the Lizard Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Ruan Minor has a well stocked village store and post office, doctor’s surgery and infant school, 12th Century church and is within easy walking distance of Cadgwith Cove, a lively and stunningly beautiful Cornish fishing cove, with a 300 year old inn renowned for its excellent locally caught fish and seafood.

The beautiful beaches of Kynance Cove, Mullion, Kennack Sands and Gunwalloe are a short drive away.

Accommodation.  The master bedroom with its en suite and dressing room has spectacular sea views. The en suite has been recently re-modelled and has a large walk-in shower with electric under floor heating, double vanity sink unit and large corner bath.

The three other bedrooms are large double rooms, each having dual aspect views over the gardens. At the moment one of the bedrooms is being used as an office.

There is a large family bathroom with bath, WC and shower. There is also a WC/powder room off the hallway and an airing cupboard.

The large reception hall, with a run of windows shaped to look like a sea wave, leads to the lounge/dining room. The utility room and large kitchen are recent installations and boast huge cupboard space and a very attractive working area. An island with five burner hob and own water supply is close by the recently installed eye-level oven. 

The dining room, off the kitchen, merges with the main lounge and snug and these three rooms are almost 50 feet long in total, enjoying sea, garden and valley views to the south and west with large sliding doors and windows facing south over Cadgwith Cove.

The cosy snug has a south facing conservatory. The lounge and snug share a huge stone chimney breast with double sided wood burning stove.

The integral garage is accessed off the hall and easily accommodates four cars. Apart from the main garage doors there are front and back doors to the garage. There is also a shower room and WC within the garage – useful when gardening!

The house and conservatory are fully double glazed, and the current owners have installed a completely new gas central heating system.

Services. Mains water, drainage and electricity

Outside gardens and grounds.  High Barn is approached from a private lane, and the sweeping driveway is flanked with lawns, shrubberies and a rockery. The drive splits with westerly access to the four bay garage and southerly to the main front entrance. There is ample parking for many vehicles and beyond the driveway is an additional gated parking area that could easily accommodate boats and caravans.

Just outside the kitchen area is a south facing greenhouse attached to the garage wall.

The main front lawn enjoys the sea views to the south and slopes gently to the main apple orchard featuring rare heritage apple trees. Currently, the owners have agreed the sale of the apples to a well-known local apple juice company. The orchard is bounded by an area of trees and a stream. There is also a large wooden stable block at the edge of the orchard.

The house, gardens and orchard amount to approximately five acres in total.
