A 76 acre smallholding with an excellent range of outbuildings, situated south of Helston on the iconic Lizard Peninsula.
A farmstead comprising approx. 76 acres of grassland, where the current owners are investigating diversification into the leisure industry. At the heart is a detached, characterful two bedroom bungalow converted and extended from what were originally pigsties and which is subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition.
The excellent range of outbuildings comprise a mixture of five older and new barns, together with a garage and workshop.
The land extends primarily to the west and south fronting the A3083. It is made up of a number of fenced fields and enclosures a number of which have water troughs served by a borehole supply. It is principally pasture and includes approx. 20 acres of croftland and woodland.
There is a wide access leading directly off the main road onto a compacted stone and aggregate yard off which are the following outbuildings:
Barn One (13.4m x 14.75m) fronted by a concrete hard standing and primarily timber frame construction.
Garage (5.37m x 3.89m) block built with concrete floor and metal up and over door.
Attached Workshop (7.98m x 3.9m) block built walls with concrete floor, electric light and power.
Barn Two (16.5m x 18.29m) open fronted with a concrete apron and of timber frame construction.
Barn Three (10.52m x 17.84m) modern galvanised steel frame and timber clad.
Barn Four (13.77m x 23.52m) older timber post construction attached to:
Barn Five (18.33m x 22m) new galvanised steel frame, timber clad and open to one side.
The farm has historical links with, and abuts the Bonython Estate where Queen Victoria is purported to have been a regular visitor for holidays. It directly fronts the A3083 with three accesses (one currently grown-in) providing easy access not only to the world famous Peninsula and lighthouse, but nearby rnas Culdrose. The old market town of Helston is approx. 6 miles away, famed for its annual Flora Day (Furry Dance) celebrations and hosts a wide range of shopping, schooling and health facilities including a hospital. This western location is surrounded by some of the UK's most scenic and, in places, rugged coastline which also contains beautiful sandy beaches.
