Full description

Highfield is a highly individual package of property and land, with amazing potential and some of the best sea and countryside views in this stunning part of North Cornwall.

The original dwelling on the land is now a disused farmhouse, whilst the bungalow was built closer to the road in the 1930’s and was sold privately nearly 40 years ago, to my client, and has never been on the open market.

The cob and stone farmhouse and the attached old shippon has a huge amount of potential to convert, subject to planning, to a modern main home or holiday let and will be sold as seen with some detritus and old tools being left in situ. My client has kept the property from falling into disrepair but never got around to converting it as they had planned. It is secluded from the main bungalow, surrounded by mature trees and it’s completed hidden from the outside world.

The 1930’s detached bungalow was built to take full advantage of the 180 degree views which encompass the sea, coastal hinterland, countryside and fields and Lundy Island is visible on a clear day. The main living room and bedroom both feature bay windows which enjoy the sea views, with the dining room housing the oil boiler firing the central heating and opening into the kitchen at the rear. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom completing the accommodation and there is need for some modernisation although the north and west facing windows have been UPVC double glazed. There is excellent potential to create a further bedroom from the large loft which is currently used for storage.
Subject to planning a dormer window could be installed to make the most of the space and the views.

My clients have worked very hard in creating an well stocked and colourful gardens full of shrubs and perennials in the 39 years from the old quarry at the rear. These enjoy a southerly aspect, a sheltered position and a good deal of privacy. There is a pond, various sheds, greenhouse and stores through the garden and steps lead up to an elevated viewing point to make the most of the panoramic views.

Both properties are surrounded by approx. 11.5 acres of pasture land, in 7 fields offering a fantastic opportunity to use the land for equestrian purpose or a hobby farm. There is a lane, which has grown over with grass, which comes past the bungalow which leads to the farmhouse, and a few outbuildings located around it, the land leads around into a long field which opens into a slightly overgrown orchard with a lovely crop of Cornish apples.

With easy access onto the A39 the property is within a 5 minute drive of the sandy, surfing beach at Widemouth Bay and the North Cornish coastal path, and the shop, restaurants and business based there. Just a couple of miles further on lies the popular coastal resort of Bude. The town has supermarkets and a variety of local and national chain stores, schools and two popular sandy beaches. The local villages of Marhamchurch and Jacobstow have county primary schools.

The position of the property is about 25 minutes from Launceston which has access onto the main A30 trunk road leading to Exeter and the M5 and within an hour of Newquay and its international airport with daily flights to London.

All in all, this very special property does need to be seen to be fully appreciated and an early internal inspection is highly recommended.

Mains water and electric and private drainage via a sesspit

AGENTS NOTE:
The property has a rarely used public footpath through it, which was historically a postmans path, as the footpath arcs back around to the A39 rather than leading to anywhere else.
From Bude proceed south along the A39 and upon reaching Poundstock, take the left turn near the old parish hall. This is before the crossroads. After you turn left, bear right and Highfield will be found at end of the track.
