This superb detached barn conversion with two bedroom reverse-level accommodation and an attached building plot with planning permission for a two bedroom cottage, is set in a most delightful, tranquil conservation area that is part of a World Heritage Site within the favoured hamlet at Gwennap.

This impressive home has pleasing mellow coloured stone, rendered and slate elevations and red brick lintels complemented by dark mahogany finish double glazed windows, all set under a raised slate long pitched roof.

Literally packed with features including a wealth of exposed stone and wood work, LPG gas central heating and Aga range (for cooking and hot water) an amazing lounge with pitched roof featuring dark wood A-frame timber and beams, a wood burning stove, timber floors, a galleried landing area and much more besides.

The well proportioned accommodation in sequence offers a delightful reception area with slate flooring, master bedroom and en-suite shower room/wc, second double bedroom and a re-modelled bathroom/wc in white. A staircase takes you to the first floor with a galleried landing area that opens to a beautiful large open plan lounge and dining room which enjoys a lovely triple aspect and a doorway through to a living kitchen/breakfast room which has a pleasant vista over the gardens at the front and across fields along the valley to the rear.

Outside, at the front of the property there are the most delightful mature sheltered gardens which enjoy a sunny aspect for much of the day across the lawns and extended timber decking. There is an archway leading to a driveway and a generous detached garage/workshop. There are good parking facilities within two driveways. Across the other side of the driveway there is a level walled garden which has conditional planning permission for the erection of a two bedroom detached dwelling which was granted on the 20th December 2016, planning notice PA16/10141.

Gwennap Churchtown is a small quiet rural hamlet set close to the beautiful church which we understand has its origins in the Norman Period. The closest local amenities can be found at the surrounding villages of Lanner, Ponsanooth, Perranwell and good access by surrounding roads takes you to the neighbouring towns of Redruth, Falmouth, Penryn, the harbour town of Falmouth and the cathedral city of Truro. The popular Fox and Hounds public house is situated within a level walking distance on the corner at Comfort.
