A sympathetically converted barn which is beautifully presented and very adaptable forms part of what was once the old farm buildings to the main farmhouse. They have all now been converted to create a small development of beautiful looking homes. Exuding class and charm with character features, such as exposed beams, exposed granite walls, wood burning stove and deep window sills. The property consists essentially of two separate, but inter-connecting homes. The main part of the house has been designed with reverse level living to take advantage of the great views over the countryside and to one elevation the sandy beaches and coastline out towards Godrevy lighthouse.
From the front entrance the glazed entrance hallway gives access to three generously sized bedrooms, family bathroom with roll top bath and laundry room/utility room with a handy shower room to one end. From one bedroom there is an inter-connecting door to the annexe should you wish to use it for further accommodation to the main house, otherwise it offers an ideal income stream or is suitable for a dependant relative or even for two families to live as one. The staircase from the hallway leads up into a splendid farmhouse style kitchen with exposed A-frames and exposed flooring. Velux sky lights allow light to flood in and further windows provide wonderful far reaching views to Godolphin and Tregonning Hills in the distance. A range of farmhouse style kitchen units with a granite effect worktop and inset Butler sink and Range style cooker are located to the far end of the room with the rest of the room allowing ample space for dining and entertaining. A few steps then lead into the splendid living room, which is a lovely cosy yet impressive room, with a modern wood burning stove, exposed A-frames and exposed granite walls. This room is lovely and light with Velux sky lights and is triple aspect, with doors to the side leading to a raised deck with glass panels providing interrupted views over the land to Godrevy Lighthouse and St Ives Bay and further windows to the front and side, offer a super countryside outlook.
The annexe, which can be used as part of the main house, or as a separate property has its own entrance from the sun room which is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the morning sun as this over looks the front courtyard area. This leads through into the kitchen/living room which is a dual aspect room with views over the countryside and central courtyard. To one side it has been fitted with white modern kitchen base units with a wooden work surface incorporating a breakfast bar. The other side is the cosy living room area which has some exposed granite walling and steps that lead into the inner hallway. To the ground floor there are 2 bedrooms and a WC, (which once had a shower cubicle and could easily be re-installed) A staircase twists up into the loft bedroom, which is a lovely room built into the eaves, providing a single bedroom with en-suite bathroom with a roll top bath. The velux windows in this room gives fantastic views out towards the coastline and rolling countryside.
To the front of the property which is accessed by a pair of gates there is a well kept gravelled courtyard area with central water fountain. Adjacent to this is a small lawned area, which has a hedge boundary is a lovely place to enjoy the morning and early afternoon sun. There are pockets of lawned areas to the side and rear of the property and a large grassed area between the 2 driveways. In addition there is a delightful patio and pondl, where you can also gain access to the rear of the property.
For the equestrian enthusiast there is a large purpose built stable block with 4 stalls, feature clock tower, loft space over for further storage, an open hay store/car port and tack room. There is a grazing field extending to almost nine acres with field shelter and sand school.
The property occupies a pleasant location on Lelant Downs, a rural, yet very accessible area on the outskirts of the pretty village of Lelant and around three miles from the bustling harbour town of St Ives. St. Ives has a colourful Mediterranean atmosphere and maze of cobbled streets and a jumble of fisherman's cottages which blend with a selection of shops, galleries, restaurants and studios centered around the pretty harbor.
Lelant Downs is appreciated by the discerning purchaser for its ease of access to St Ives, the A30 trunk road and the Penzance to Paddington line at St Erth. The popular village of Carbis Bay is not far away and is situated overlooking the sparkling waters of St Ives Bay. It has a range of local amenities including shops, church and primary school along with a large stretch of golden sand running from Porthminster Point to Hawke's Point. There is a coastal footpath which offers views of some of the finest scenery in the country, as do the walks across the Penwith Moors. Nearby is the town of Hayle with Penzance around eight miles away and the city of Truro around twenty miles away.
