Cal Hill Farm
The property offers immense development potential, subject to consents. In all about 5.45 acres (2.21ha).
Likely to be of interest to a number of different buyers, this unique semi-rural property offers flexible well-appointed and extensive accommodation with several outbuildings, surrounded by its own land on three sides.
Enjoying stunning distant coastal views to the west from many areas of the land, the accommodation comprises a charming two bedroom cottage with immense character, a self-contained detached five bedroom single storey annexe, and further one bedroom detached annexe.
Buyers may well see development potential at the property, subject to consents, especially since four of the nine fields front the A393 road.
We recommend arranging a viewing appointment at your earliest convenience to appreciate this superb opportunity.
Cal-Hill Farm is accessed from a minor council road off the A393 Sandy Lane. A five-bar gate and tarmacadamed drive provides a pleasant introduction to the property and leads to a gravelled parking area serving both detached annexes. This drive continues through a further gate and sweeps around between well-presented stabling and storage outbuildings to a large tarmacadamed vehicular parking area. The stabling and storage shed have natural slate roofs over rendered concrete block walls. An adjacent detached utility room can be used for dog grooming. Steps lead up to the patio area at main cottage, with adjacent large detached conservatory, formerly housing a hot tub.
At ground floor level, this character two bedroom house with impressive large sunroom with twin bi-folding doors, large sitting /dining room with two large stone inglenook fireplaces, beautifully fitted kitchen, bath/shower room and rear lobby. On the first floor there is a small landing and two double bedrooms.
Five Bed Annexe
Situated adjacent to the main cottage this well-appointed detached single storey annexe was converted from the former cow shed with part natural slate roof. Warmed by oil fired central heating, the accommodation comprises five bedrooms, sitting room, dining room, fitted kitchen with grey gloss units and many Bosch appliances and two bath/shower rooms. This well thought out property allows for a sociable family life with doors leading out to a central decked courtyard from the sitting room, kitchen and four of the five bedrooms. Indeed, the externally accessed bedrooms could also provide lucrative letting opportunities.
One Bed Annexe

The main entrance drive also gives access to a gravelled yard area with two detached open fronted barns and access to the land. Much of the land is stock proofed. There is a donkey shed and goats house on the land, which is divided into nine meadows and is laid to grass with a gentle south-westerly aspect suitable for many purposes. Of particular note are the Cornish hedges enclosing and dividing the fields featuring several mature trees inclusing a proliferation of Blackthorn, Hawthorn, Elderberry, Holly and Willow. Water is connected to the lower fields. Two further access gateways lead to the land from Cal Hill, a minor council road, one of which is more suited to a small tractor, the other for access on foot. Cal Hill leads to nearby ancient Carn Marth, providing excellent riding out with many Public Bridleways and a beautiful amphitheatre.
Four of the fields at the property front the A393 'Sandy Lane' on the Eastern side of Redruth, which gives access towards the A30 trunk road to the north and towards Falmouth to the southwest.
