White Alice Farm
Secluded well away from any main roads, this property boasts wonderful riding out due to its central location amidst an abundance of bridal ways and public footpaths that interlace the area providing miles of safe riding and walking. It is close to the southern end of Stithians reservoir where there is a variety of water sports and even more scenic walks. It is a hugely popular location convenient to the village shop and primary school at Rame 3 miles away on the A394 Truro/Falmouth/Helston Road. With an extensive and varied range of shopping, schooling, leisure and health facilities, Helston is 6 miles distant, the University Town of Penryn 6 miles, and the vibrant port of Falmouth 8 miles. Cornwall’s Cathedral city and centre of commerce Truro is just 13 miles away.
The Main House
An extensive yet flexible 5/6-bedroom granite and stone built farmhouse (originally built as two cottages), currently used as a family home with self-contained annexe. It is considered ideal for those with an extended family or a dependant relative. It is a home that can be used to generate additional holiday income boosting the income already being generated by the two flats. It is presented throughout to a standard that is a credit to its current owners who are planning to retire. The property is heated by air source central heating, oil-fired Rayburn complemented by log burners and uPVC double glazing.
One part of this inviting home is entered through a split-level conservatory which opens into a spacious kitchen/breakfast room featuring Rayburn and an inglenook fireplace. There is a small utility room adjacent providing access to the rear and wood store. The kitchen opens into a study/dining room and onto a generous living room, the focal point of which is an impressive inglenook fireplace which is home to a large wood burner.
A turning staircase leads from the study/dining area up to two first floor bedrooms and bathroom of the main house.
The other half of the main house comprises a self-contained cottage, having its own separate access and staircase. It comprises a lounge, a dining room (previously used as a ground floor bedroom), kitchen and downstairs bathroom. Upstairs are three bedrooms, all en-suite, the master bedroom includes large bathroom.
There is a lockable interconnecting door between the two parts of this house, meaning that overall the accommodation extends to over 3,200 square feet, creating one very spacious and versatile home!
A separate detached two-storey barn has been converted to provide, at first floor level, two self-contained 2 bedroom holiday flats that currently generate a useful income. Beneath, at ground floor level, a workshop, hobby/games room, utility room and two WCs.
A range of outbuildings, which includes a 63’ long barn, four stables and double garage offers additional potential for development, subject to planning, as does the detached stone built outbuilding.
For many it will be the rural seclusion and external space that will be the major appeal of this property. It is considered ideal for those who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle where the 10 acres of pasture land and woodland, large barn, stabling and outbuildings more than cater for those with horses and hobby farmers.
Mains electricity and water are connected to the property. There is a private drainage system serving the main house and the flats, and surface water. Broadband is connected to the property. Central heating to the main house/s is provided by an air source heat pump system with radiators. The flats have electrical heating and hot water. None of these services have been tested and therefore no guarantees can be given.
