Run of pasture land and woodland – approximately 14.06 acres in all
Carnkie Farm is situated in an easily accessible part of Cornwall between Helston and Truro. The farmhouse and traditional buildings sit centrally within the holding and the surrounding land provides views over open pasture and mature woodland. The farm forms part of the stunning surrounding countryside that includes the Helford Estuary which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan and with numerous scenic creekside and coastal walks within easy reach. The old market town of Helston offers a wider range of shops and supermarkets and is known as the ‘gateway’ to the Lizard Peninsula and the most southern tip of mainland Britain.
Besides the scenery and landscape, the farm is in an exceptionally convenient location, with great walking and biking trails literally on the doorstep. The farm is also well placed for both the surfing beaches on the north coast and the sailing waters of Falmouth. The main A30 carriageway is a few miles away to the north and there is a mainline railway station in Redruth with regular links to London Paddington. There is a leisure centre with squash courts at nearby Carn Brea and a golf course at Tehidy a few miles to the north east.
The surrounding local villages of Carnkie, Porkellis and Stithians offer a good range of amenities and there is a local primary school at Halwin, Porkellis. The Cathedral City of Truro with its private schooling and regarded shopping centre is some 11 miles away, while Newquay airport (27 miles) operates regular flights to London Gatwick and Stansted.
Approached from a part private drive, the ‘non listed’ detached farmhouse is a 4 double bedroom modern property in a very private location. The house provides comfortable accommodation and is well laid out over two floors. The property benefits from double glazing, a recently fitted central heating system and as a result is very efficient to run and well insulated. The property was rewired, re plumbed, replastered and new loft insulation was installed in 2012.
The land extends to approximately 43 acres in total. The majority of the productive farmland comprises good quality level and gently sloping pasture that is well fenced and has access to a natural water course. The woodland which surrounds a pretty pond includes several deciduous species of hardwood such as ash and oak. The land would lend itself well to agriculture, equestrian and amenity use. The land can be approached from several different gateways via a council maintained road.
Freehold with vacant possession on completion of a successful sale.
Via a private track off a council maintained road that leads to Carnkie. There are 5 bar gates allowing access to some of the land from a council road that runs past the Wendron Sports Club.
