The Main House
The farmhouse was originally built in the 1900’s and later divided into two semi-detached houses. Oakleigh is deceptively spacious with 3 bedrooms, all with beautiful far-reaching countryside views, and a study which could be utilised as a fourth. It has an entrance porch / conservatory and a large kitchen / breakfast room with a separate dining room. The living room is an excellent size with patio doors to the gardens. There is a good size family bathroom and also a shower room. The property also has a rear porch / utility. There is an abundance of space to choose from!
The detached annexe is a huge asset to the property for those wishing to house a relative or to continue to use on the current holiday letting basis which brings in a lucrative income. There is a lovely conservatory entrance to relax and enjoy the country views. This leads to a spacious kitchen / dining room. There are also two double bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor. Upstairs is the living room with a stunning apex ceiling and feature window to enjoy the views, along with a third bedroom and shower room.
Around 15 acres of land to enjoy! The current layout of the grounds consists of areas with enclosures which are used for sheep, geese, chickens and ducks. This would also suit those looking at equestrian uses and is perfect for horses. The land leads down to a large open space with woodland and shrubs making up the main size of the land. This offers huge potential for those looking to ‘live off the land’ offering a range of uses to suit many requirements. Also, in the main garden is a large 30ft outbuilding and several storage sheds
Overall, this is an incredibly rare opportunity for those looking for a property with land and income potential within a beautiful rural hamlet nearby to bustling villages in South Cornwall.
