Deriving its name from the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897, Jubilee Farm has been tastefully adapted and enhanced during the current owners' tenure to provide well proportioned and versatile family accommodation. Situated on a relatively level plot, Jubilee Farm is likely to appeal to buyers seeking a post pandemic change of lifestyle or a wish to live the 'good life' through cultivating a smallholding and utilising the land. Within one of the fields sits a derelict barn which enjoys a fine outlook towards Stithians Reservoir and open countryside beyond and which would seem ripe for conversion into a holiday let. Details of the planning application and historic permission can be found below.

Enjoying an elevated position the residence and land enjoy far reaching rural views in most directions, together with distant coastal views towards the western coast of the Lizard Peninsula and to Dodman Point on the Roseland. On a clear day they are simply magnificent to behold.

The ground floor accommodation comprises a formal dining room, a farmhouse style kitchen with an oil fired Rayburn and separate dining area, a lovely lounge with a stone fireplace and wood burning stove (with back boiler), a utility room, a shower room and an entrance hall and inner hallway.

On the first floor are three double bedrooms with stripped wood flooring, a family bathroom with a roll top bath and, in the attic, there is a useful office space and further storage area.

Outside there is a front garden laid largely to lawn, whilst to the rear lies a patio area, a workshop/store and a more formal lawned garden area with a small pond. Beyond this lie pasture fields, a small copse with saplings, a vegetable patch, solar panels and a storage barn. A tarmacked driveway runs from the front of the property beyond which there is a track which runs to the rear entrance and off which there is ample parking for a large number of vehicles.

The residence benefits from double glazing, oil fired heating and solar panels.

Carnkie is a rural hamlet convenient for both the towns of Helston and Falmouth with all the amenities they have to offer. Within the hamlet there is a village hall and Wendron Sports Club which provides sports facilities and a clubhouse with a bar. In the nearby hamlet of Porkellis there is the well regarded Star Inn public house whilst a short distance away is the primary school of Halwin. Secondary education can be found in both Helston and Falmouth with the latter also having a university campus.

Stithian Reservoir is situated a short drive away and offers a range of watersport activities and lakeside walks to visitors.

A mainline railway station can be found approximately seven miles away in Redruth with the A30 arterial road into Cornwall being a similar distance away.
