Situated just above the Camel Estuary in the tranquility of the pretty hamlet of Tregonce, within a short drive of both picturesque Padstow and bustling Wadebridge is this exquisitely presented and maintained three bedroom detached barn conversion. Tredougann, which dates back over 100 years and was originally the cowshed for the neighbouring farmhouse, was converted in 1998 into the substantial home it is today.
The property successfully combines original character with contemporary fixtures and fittings to create a hugely welcoming ambience in a reverse living style that maximises the views across the Camel Estuary, the iron bridge, to Padstow and out to sea. Within approximately 0.5 miles is direct access to the Camel Trail that in turn leads all the way to Padstow itself. Currently a highly successful, self managing 5 star holiday let with a strong and consistent letting history and reputability, the property is available fully furnished (by separate negotiation) with further holiday bookings in place.
The current owners purchased Tredougann in 2003 and set about completely remodeling the interior with further substantial improvements in 2014 and again in 2017. The combined first floor kitchen, dining and family room has everything you would expect of a 5-star property - a sleek white gloss modern kitchen fully fitted with a range of integral appliances, space enough for a large dining table seating eight and comfortable lounge area for sofas and occasional furniture. The separate utility room/entrance lobby has a stable door entrance, space and plumbing for a washer/dryer and a cloakroom with WC.
Moving along to the large and light sitting room, you are immediately drawn to the floor to ceiling bi-fold doors that, when fully open, create an ;indoor balcony' from which far reaching views can be savoured towards Padstow, the Camel Estuary and the ocean beyond. There is plenty of space for sofas and occasional furniture which makes for a very comfortable living space.
Descending to the ground floor, the central hallway is an impressive and inviting entrance way. Head into the spacious master bedroom with a great view over the garden, built in storage and a stylish en-suite shower room with heated slate floor, towel rail and crisp white sanitary ware. Both the second and third bedrooms are genuine doubles with built in storage while the ground floor accommodation is complete with a spacious family bathroom incorporating a heated slate floor, towel rail, separate bath and shower and crisp white sanitary ware.
The garden at Tredougann is small but beautiful, sheltered and private. It comprises separate areas of lawn and decking with a hot outside shower, space for outdoor furniture and a bike rack. The front garden has an attractive lawn together with a paved area and bench. Up to four vehicles can be parked on the driveways at both ends of the property with plenty of room for a visiting caravan or boat trailer. Tredougann also owns the freehold of a small corner of the adjacent field, in which the private septic tank drainage system is cited. Tredougann has full residential planning permission and is therefore suitable for permanent or holiday use. Services to the property include mains electricity and water, septic tank drainage and an oil fired central heating system with combination boiler.
