  • Type: Barn conversion
  • Bedrooms: 3
  • Listing status: sale
  • Country: England


A chance to acquire a most interesting and quite exceptional three bedroom attached barn which was converted approximately fifteen years ago to a high standard, offering deceptively spacious split level living accommodation over two floors. Along with Bluewater Barn is a detached studio located within the grounds which would be ideal for a variety of uses, subject to any necessary planning permissions.

Bluewater Barn has been designed in such a way to enable versatile living and really needs to be viewed internally to appreciate to the full. The present vendors have enhanced the property in the time that they have occupied Bluewater Barn, maintaining the property to a high standard throughout. A particularly attractive feature are the grounds which offer a good degree of privacy and have been arranged in such a way to minimise maintenance. There is a large gravelled parking and turning area which continues through the grounds offering potential to create more formal gardens. There is access to the detached studio/auxiliary accommodation to the main barn, which as already mentioned, has great potential. From the main living rooms, there is access to a central courtyard, which again offers a high degree of privacy and enjoys all day sun in the summer with morning sun in the winter. Bluewater Barn is set in a small sought after hamlet, just behind Trereife House and is conveniently placed for access to both Penzance and Newlyn alike, and the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole is only a short drive away. Due to the popularity of properties such as this, we would recommend an early appointment to avoid disappointment.
