Baytree is a most attractive detached country property and enjoys a great deal of privacy and seclusion yet not being isolated with the main farmhouse and other barns in the vicinity.
We understand that the property was originally converted in 1992/3, more recently refurbished including the dining/kitchen/utility extension. As can be seen by the photographs traditional materials have been used with the property now providing a most comfortable home with a great deal of character and charm in a most splendid rural situation. The property has a number of character features including exposed timber beams, handmade oak internal doors, various Tavistock slate floors, oil fired underfloor heating and a superb handbuilt Jonathan March kitchen with granite worktops.
To locate the property from Wadebridge, take the main A39 towards St Kew Highway and after approximately 2.5 miles turn left as if you were going into St Kew Golf Club/St Kew Harvest Farm Shop but continue down this road and after approximately half a mile on the right hand side is an entrance to Hendra. Take the second entrance, go past the large farmhouse with the other barns on the left and Baytree is the last property on the right hand side in the corner.

We understand that the current vendors have previously obtained planning consent for the conversion of the carport and workshop to side to create annex accommodation. There is also a separate access from Hendra Lane and we feel that this offers an opportunity to create an alternative driveway for Baytree together with the possibility of constructing extra garage accommodation subject of course to the necessary consent being granted.
At the rear of the property are the formal gardens with oil tank concealed with fencing at the lower corner. A slate paved pathway leads around 2 sides of the property bordered by natural stone walling with steps up to lawned garden with shrub and tree borders. Raised timber corner decking. The path then leads round to a second patio/courtyard area. From the formal garden a gate gives access to the orchard with apple, plum and pear trees.
From the courtyard patio steps lead up to the main lawn area with paved area which has been used as a drying area. Gates give access to:- fenced fruit and vegetable garden with aluminium framed greenhouse and 2 timber sheds all of which have power connected and various watering stations within the garden. Fenced grassed paddock from which a further gate leads to the main paddock which adjoins the 8th fairway of St Kew Golf Club. There is a further vehicular access leading from Hendra Lane into middle paddock with potential for new drive/garage/stabling subject to permissions.
