DESCRIPTION Rarely available, Horsepool Farmhouse comprises a unique and Grade 2 Listed detached farmhouse in an enviable setting within the beautiful landscape and secure environment of the world renowned St Mellion International Golf Resort. The property is steeped in history and character and represents a "once in a lifetime" opportunity to purchase a truly individual home privately situated within about 0.5 acre of established gardens and orchard. There is the opportunity to create a third bedroom by removing the ensuite bathroom depending upon individual needs. The traditional outbuilding totals about 946 sq ft and is divided into a generous garage/workshop, office, studio, cloakroom/wc and further workshop. The building may have potential for alternative uses subject to any consents that may be required. The drainage system is private and connected to the Resort's private system by informal arrangement. We understand that the roof was last thatched in 2003 and the ridge was renewed circa 2010.
Given the location the property would be equally suited as a primary residence or indeed as a second home/holiday let.
The accommodation extends to about 1669 sq ft and briefly comprises - GROUND FLOOR - Timber Door to Entrance Porch - Reception Hall with Cloakroom/WC off - 15' Dining Room with exposed beams and original winder stairwell off - 18' Dual Aspect Kitchen/Breakfast Room - Rear Lobby - 17' Dual Aspect Sitting Room with exposed beams and old fireplace - FIRST FLOOR - Two Generously Proportioned Double Bedrooms (1 x 19' and 1 x 17') one has an ensuite shower room with potential to revert to a third bedroom and both have a dual aspect - Family Bathroom.
OUTSIDE The property is approached over a long private tarmac drive leading to a relatively level parking and turning area with ample space for motorhome/caravan or boat etc. This in turn leads to the fabulous garage/studio space (previously described).
The established gardens extend to just over 0.5 acre and comprise extensive areas of lawn with mature orchard and various trees and shrubs. The gardens offer a good degree of privacy and seclusion.
