Planning Permission

Under Planning Application Number PA17/12248, Cornwall Council granted residential planning permission on 29th March 2018 to allow extension and alterations, including a raised terrace (yet to be done), to the existing cottage to provide and build a new kitchen, and bedroom. With the commissioning of reputable local builders and crafts people, this sympathetically restored cottage, as seen today, has the addition of an oak framed extension that cleverly compliments and enhances the beautiful character features of the original cottage.

Farm Cottage: On The Ground Floor

Enter through an old oak door into the kitchen which leads round in an L-shape to an open plan Living Room which forms the ground floor of the new oak framed extension. The kitchen has been sympathetically created in a farmhouse style with wooden work surfaces to two walls. A wonderful feature is the beamed apex ceiling and two double casement windows with the sink carefully positioned to take full advantage of the south facing coastal views also allowing natural light to pour in. Appliances include a graphic grey Everhot electric range cooker.

A timber floor extends into the Living Room. Under the first staircase is a large storage cupboard. To one side is a wood burning stove on an old brick style hearth with an exposed granite wall back drop. This dual aspect room has open beams and French doors leading onto the sun terrace. A clever shuttered open hatch allows extra light in to the Sitting Room.

Farm Cottage: On The Ground Floor (Continued)

Double doors lead into a Boot Room / Utility Room which could easily be converted into an office or media space. A further doorway leads on to an Inner hall with a secondary access door. To one side is a downstairs Bathroom with electric shower over the bath. The Sitting Room has a featured inglenook fireplace with clome oven, open beams and a brace and latch door to the original staircase.

Farm Cottage: On The First Floor

On the first floor, the new staircase leads to a landing with countryside views to the front. This provides access to a stylish first floor Bathroom and the main Bedroom which has dual aspect south and west facing sea and coastal views. A deep cupboard houses a Gledhill hot water tank which, if relocated, could provide a doorway in to the second Bedroom.

The second Bedroom has an apex beamed ceiling with sea and coastal views to the south and countryside views. A second Gledhill water tank is installed in a large airing cupboard.

The Detached Outbuilding – Possible Annexe / Bedroom 3

Located in the garden with a sun terrace, the outbuilding is in a prime position to capture the wonderful vista as well as the all-day sunshine. The building is equipped and ready for installation of a bathroom and / or kitchen facilities for the new owner to convert to their own useable space be it an office space or occasional extra accommodation, subject to consents.

The Gardens

The south facing gardens are around one fifth of an acre and are mainly laid to lawn, with sun terraces located beside the cottage. A timber gateway off the rural road enters onto a gravel parking area for 2 to 3 cars. Bordered mainly by fence and Cornish wall, the gardens are of a good size yet are landscaped for ease of maintenance to allow one to simply sit and dine to enjoy the spectacular views.
