Uniquely situated amongst countryside in an elevated and prominent position on the immediate outskirts of the desirable locations of Rock and Trebetherick and with striking far reaching views across St Enodoc Golf Course towards the picturesque fishing village of Padstow is Spring Barn.
Cleverly adapted and sympathetically converted with a neutral tasteful decor, much care has been taken to retain the original character of this former agricultural barn with noteworthy features including vaulted ceilings with chunky A frame beams, exposed granite walls and pillars, hardwood double glazed windows and doors with wooden lintels and a cast iron wood burning stove set within a large feature fireplace.
With the living accommodation on the first floor, steps with an iron handrail to the side rise up to the hardwood entrance door. Just take a moment to appreciate the quite stunning views across the adjacent fields to the fairways of St Enodoc in the distance. The front door opens immediately into the living room with a wood floor quickly leading to carpet. The vaulted ceiling with chunky A frame beams give the room added height and character alongside the exposed stone walls and wooden lintels. The living space is focused around the impressive slate topped feature fireplace with driftwood lintel, slate hearth, recessed slate shelves and cast iron wood burning stove with exposed flue. Dual aspect windows with slate sills and a tall floor to ceiling window enable natural light to flood in while the staircase descends to the ground floor. A stable door leads into the kitchen which again has a dual aspect and is fitted with an attractive range of cream fronted floor and wall cabinets and drawers topped with a wood effect work surface and a combination of tile and wood paneled splashback. Space is allocated for an electric cooker, fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. The ceiling is again vaulted and beamed with wooden floorboards underfoot and space for a dining table and chairs.
Moving downstairs, the ground floor inner hallway features exposed granite pillars and wooden lintels above the doorways to the bedrooms, bathroom and utility room with access to an area of loft. The first bedroom, an excellent size double, features a dual aspect with wooden lintels and slate sills enjoying views to the front and rear. The second bedroom, a comfortable double or twin, has a lovely exposed granite corner pillar and a front aspect window with wooden lintel and slate sill enjoying views to the front. The third bedroom again has an exposed granite pillar and front aspect window with wooden lintel and slate sill with ample space for a double bed and wardrobe. The family bathroom is spacious, with room enough for a fitted bath and separate glass shower enclosure including a thermostatic multifunction tower panel with body jets. Crisp white sanitary ware, a chrome heated towel rail and tiled floor complete the fixtures. Lastly the utility room, comprising a slate flagstone floor and exposed stone wall with space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine and tumble dryer. A part glazed hardwood door leads to the garden at the rear and there is even more storage space under the stairs.
As Spring Barn is approached from Trewint Lane, a five bar wooden gate opens onto a large graveled driveway with ample turning space and parking for several vehicles. Timber sleepers enclose a raised area of lawn directly in front of the house together with a paved patio and open fronted log store beneath the stairs. A stone wall with flower bed sits to the eastern boundary with a post and rail fence completing the southern and western perimeter, adjacent to open farmland. A granite post highlights the partition between the front garden and the rear, with a boundary fence to the side and graveled pathway leading to an enclosed area of lawn with a pretty Cornish hedge boundary wall. Surrounded by open countryside, there is a fantastic far reaching outlook from the garden yet with excellent privacy perfect for enjoying the long summer nights and Cornish sunsets. Services to Spring Barn include mains water and electricity and a septic tank drainage system.
Spring Barn has an outstanding letting history with future bookings in place which the eventual purchaser will benefit from. This alongside the outstanding position, equidistant between the desirable locations of Rock and Trebetherick within easy reach of the family and dog friendly beach at Daymer Bay, we at Jackie Stanley recommend an internal viewing at the earliest convenience.
