Full Details

The Property
This lovingly restored and carefully refurbished detached former farmhouse has a handsome stone frontage under a hipped gable slate roof. Many of the renovations and improvements have been carried out since 2020 which means that as well as being up to date, the property feels bright and fresh. It is superbly decorated and ready for its new owners to enjoy from day one.

The main house has a stone porch which opens into a 36ft long open plan lounge and dining room with beautiful oak flooring and a gorgeous Inglenook style fireplace with a wood burner as the main focal point. At the other end of the room is another fireplace with a fitted pizza oven. To the rear of the house is a large family orientated kitchen/breakfast room which has been fitted with a comprehensive range of contemporary style cupboards, drawers and worktops together with stone worktops and a butler’s sink. The former fireplace has been utilised as space for a Range style cooker and to one side has a former clome oven. The kitchen units incorporate a built in wine cooler and a fan assisted oven with warming drawer. The centre piece of the kitchen is a large island unit surrounded by a well worn slate flagstone floor.

From the kitchen, stairs rise to the first floor and there is access to a utility room together with access to the rear sun lounge, a wonderful space to sit and enjoy the outlook over the garden and the solid fuel stove fitted to one corner. The utility room has a range of storage cupboards matching those in the kitchen plus a sink, and in turn leads into the boot room and rear porch where there is a separate wc and a shower. At first floor there are four generous bedrooms, three of which enjoy the same bright south westerly aspect as that of the lounge/diner. The main bedroom has built-in wardrobes plus a dressing room where the cupboards thoughtfully include electric lighting and heaters. In addition to the en-suite shower, the main family bathroom has been beautifully refitted to include a free-standing bath and separate shower.

The property is accessed over a large gravelled driveway and carparking area, which also provides access to the double garage (20’11 x 19’6), a range of former Stables with extant planning permission for conversion to an office and to the rear of which is a useful timber built store referred to as the tractor shed.

Attached to the side of the house is a stone and slate outbuilding which contains the equipment for the air source heating system and the operating equipment for the photovoltaic roof panels (Tesla batteries excluded from sale).

As previously mentioned, the house enjoys a south westerly aspect and is fronted by walled gardens with a variety of mature shrubs and flowers together with hard landscaped seating areas and granite steps.

Extending to the immediate rear of the house is a large grassed garden within which are a variety of fruit trees and to the corner of which is a sizable, productive vegetable garden complete with polytunnel. Extending beyond this garden area is a paddock of approximately 3.7 acres. Enclosed by established hedging the paddock includes a shelter of approximately 20ft x 12ft with two adjoining lean-to’s used for storage and shelter. It should be noted that the recently planted Hazelnut trees will be removed.

Barn Annexe
With its own separate access from the road and private gardens, the barn has been run for some time as a successful holiday let. It provides bright and spacious open plan accommodation at ground floor with two double bedrooms with en-suites at first floor.

Middle Cadwin Farm is tucked away at the heart of a small rural hamlet from which the property takes it name. Whilst relishing a peaceful countryside setting, the property is easily accessible being just 1.7 miles off the county’s main arterial route, the A30. Close to hand are the varied amenities of Lanivet, which should cater for most daily requirements and include a primary school, convenience store, Post Office, church and public house. From Lanivet, a regular bus service provides access to the many shopping, schooling, health, leisure and commercial facilities that can be found within the historic former county town of Bodmin, 3 miles away. The A30 affords easy access throughout the county and means that major towns including Truro, Launceston, St Austell and Wadebridge are all within a half hour drive. The rugged beauty of the north Cornish coast along with its beaches at Padstow, Mawgan Porth and Newquay are within 18 miles, whilst the picturesque south coast and ports that include Fowey, Pentewan and Mevagissey are all within similar distance on the south coast. Between the latter two are the stunning Lost Gardens of Heligan, a hugely popular tourist attraction in the area.
