This handsome detached period farmhouse (not listed) offers a huge amount of untapped potential and is set in this delightful semi-rural location. In need of renovation throughout the property has five bedrooms and four reception rooms. There are numerous period features including high ceilings, slate floors, wooden ceiling beans to name a few!

The formal entrance to the property is front on the Western elevation and takes you straight into a welcoming hallway with an original staircase. To the left is a separate drawing room with fireplace and to the right is a front to rear sitting room that is dual aspect with a stone fireplace housing a wood burner. A rear hallway sweeps into a large rear porch with back door. The kitchen has an opening into the dining room which is packed full of character including slate floors, window seat and exposed ceiling joists. The farmhouse adjoins a stone barn to the rear offering scope as an annexe, and currently comprises of a boiler room, shower room, office with spiral staircase to first floor snug.

There are 5 bedrooms in total plus a family bathroom and W/C. The five bedrooms are made up of three generous doubles, one small double and a single. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower enclosure.

In recent years, our vendors have obtained conditional planning permission for the farmhouse to be completely reconfigured and extended making better use of the space on offer. Furthermore, the plans include an attached 2 bedroom annexe. Further information on the approval plans can be found on Cornwall Councils Planning Portal under Planning reference number PA17/09017

To the higher side of the farmhouse is a sizable garden that could be landscaped to a purchaser’s own design and taste. Currently the farmhouse is approached over a short access lane and terminates to the rear of the property. Our vendors have obtained conditional planning permission to create a new approach to the North in conjunction with the eventual conversion of another nearby barn. It is anticipated the new approach would follow a hedge line and terminate in what is now the rear garden. Further information on the approval plans can be found on Cornwall Councils Planning Portal under Planning reference number PA17/09019

The property is situated in a rural location along pretty country lanes with the nearest village being Stoke Climsland which features a local shop and post office, popular primary school and Duchy College. The nearby town of Callington offers further facilities which includes a secondary school, supermarkets and a town centre. Other local areas if interest include Kit Hill which offers beautiful scenery and country walks, the National Trust estate Cotehele with Dartmoor to one side and the North Cornish beaches to the other side.
