This rare opportunity is available on the open market for the first time in over 50 years. The Barn is believed to date back over 300 years. The building has had a variety of residential and agricultural uses over the years prior to being purchased by the current family in the 1960’s as an addition to Porthcurnick House of which they used to own. In the 1970’s the property was extended as seen today when the family sold the main house and moved into The Barn.
Located off the rural coastal road within 350 yards of Porthcurnick Beach, The Barn offers versatile accommodation and a mix of character features. The main Reception Hall has a turning staircase to the First Floor Landing.
On the Ground Floor is a Shower Room and two Double Bedrooms, one of which has a French door leading on the beautiful gardens. A doorway from the hall leads into the older part of the property with 2 foot thick walls comprising a spacious Kitchen Dining Room with a featured bay window, oil fired Aga, disused central heating boiler, space and point for electric cooker, and a range of kitchen cabinets with a double drainer stainless steel sink unit inset which overlooks a wide window to the gardens. A doorway leads to a Utility Room, with a secondary entrance door, sink unit and window.
On the upper part of the original building is a 34 foot Living Room with triple aspect windows offering a pleasant aspect towards Gerrans Bay. Character features in this wonderful room include an open grate fireplace with stone surround, slate hearth, mantle and corner alcove, exposed stone walls and a high canopied ceiling. Off the First Floor Landing is a Family Bathroom and two further Double Bedrooms.
The Gardens (Around one third of an acre)
Pull in off the rural lane, the property is approached by a five-bar gate onto a gravelled parking forecourt. To one side is a Detached Garage. A pedestrian gate leads to the front garden and courtyard. The private gardens surround the property and are laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs, flowers and bushes disbursed. A rear gate provides access to the land.
The Land (Circa 6 acres in total)
To the side of the property and the gardens, a vehicular lane heads to a gate which goes on to an enclosure that borders the gardens. A neighbouring property (Upper Rosevine) has a right of way over the lane to the first five-bar gate to attend to maintenance to the rear of their property. The owner of the adjoining field to the north has right of way over the lane and the track across the enclosure.
Off the enclosure is a fence and gate to approximately 3 acres of pasture land which directly leads on to a further circa 3 acres of woodland valley that dog legs and also leads down to a bordering stream.
