The main Farmhouse dates from the 16th century and has been added to over the subsequent centuries. The roof is Delabole Rag Slate and the walls are a mixture of Cob, Stone and Brick and during the current ownership they have all had the old internal render removed, re rendered with plastic membrane installed and relined to provide a good dry finish.
There are some lovely original features, including two cloam ovens either side of the kitchen fireplace (now houses an electric AGA), Delabole flagstone floors, Gun Rack above the sitting room fireplace and a large cellar. Wood burners feature in both the sitting room and dining room. To bring the property up to modern standards there is an external oil fired boiler for heating and hot water which is stored in an unvented tank (with electric immersion for back up.)
From the sitting room there is a half flight of stairs up to a vaulted study(bedroom 6) with sea views as well as a half flight down to bedroom one which has a shower ensuite and small conservatory with sea views. A separate staircase from the hallway takes you up to three double bedrooms, the main bathroom and bedroom 5 which is a single/double bunk room with exposed `A` frames and glazed panes of glass set amongst the actual roof slates.
In addition to the Farmhouse, are the three barns which have had a favourable response from the local planning department with regard to their potential change of use and redevelopment resulting in three individual and spacious 3 bedroom conversions. Detailed Pre application proposals prepared by award winning architects Untitled Practice were submitted by the vendors to Cornwall Council, resulting in a positive Pre application advice response from the Council. The application and response can be viewed on and downloaded from the Cornwall Council online planning portal, Ref PA20/00507. Untitled Practice would welcome the opportunity to engage with prospective purchasers and to work with new owners.
With regard to the three barns, the first is Keat`s Cottage, a west facing stone and slate building which has served as a successful holiday accommodation, but at present is residential accommodation. It is a basic one bedroom property adjoined to a pretty roundhouse (7.5m x 7.3m) which is unconverted, though benefits from an extant, implemented but not built 1989 planning consent for conversion to a three-bedroomed property. The current Pre application planning scheme envisions the properties being converted into one dwelling including a "contemporary vernacular" extension to the west creating a separately accessed, luxury three bedroom property with its own covered car parking and with stunning valley and sea views set within its own private garden and paddock fronting onto open fields.
Second is Hambly`s Barn, currently a single story (14m x 4.4m), west facing slate and stone barn with modern plastic coated galvanized roofing sheets to the main roof area protecting the structure, and with a side stable/storage lean-to. The Pre application planning scheme envisions extending Hambly's Barn into a two story reversed accommodation conversion, with bedrooms and bathroom below and living/dining above opening on to a full width west facing balcony. The property would benefit from its own, Cornish dry stone wall enclosed private garden, pony paddock and parking. There is light and power to this barn.
Thirdly is Peter`s Barn, a block and steel built, 2 story more modern agricultural building measuring approx. 12m x 9m. The Pre application planning scheme envisions its conversion into either a large, south facing 3 bedroomed single detached dwelling, or two south facing semi-detached 2 bedroomed dwellings, complete with car parking, extensive garden and pony paddock. There is light and power to this barn.
The land that comes with the Farm is a mixture of fenced pasture where the owners graze a few sheep and a large tiered garden to the south below the Farmhouse. From this garden an archway formed between two trees provides a charming entrance into a wooded coppice area which has a spring feeding into a small stream that culminates in a large pond. Although slightly grown in now, this area could be relandscaped to become more accessible. Beyond the wooded area is another meadow, capable of separate access from the highway and perfect for a gypsy caravan, yurts etc, out of site from the rest of the small holding.
There are also historic tracks, some with stone retaining walls that divide the sections of the property, all adding to the interesting and distinct character of the property.
The Pre planning application included a "masterplan" illustrating how all the properties could be provided with their own, discrete approaches, vehicular access and car parking such that they could be split from each other, including through the division of the existing carport and studio into two to provide separate parking for both Keat`s Cottage and The Farmhouse.

With the Cornish Arms pub in Pendoggett at the end of the access lane and the Port Gaverne Hotel at the end of the footpath (approx 1.5 miles) the property may alternatively lend itself to an upmarket holiday complex with easy access to Port Isaac/Port Gaverne yet in a tranquil traffic free location.
