This handsome & highly attractive five bedroom Cornish farmhouse is nestled in the pretty & quaint Little Petherick.

This handsome and highly attractive five bedroom Cornish farmhouse is nestled in the pretty and quaint hamlet of Little Petherick within a short drive or cycle of both Padstow and Wadebridge. At over 2800 square feet, The Old Farmhouse stands proudly within Little Petherick complete with countryside and woodland views. Private and enclosed gardens sit to the rear of the house along with a separate study and bathroom joined to the main house via the utility room giving potential for a self contained annexe. Noteworthy features include original stripped pine doors and paneling, original tessellated tiles in the entranceway, stripped timber flooring  in the bedrooms, beamed ceilings, Parquet flooring Aga, wood burning stove, large double glazed sliding sash windows with shutters, and authentic high ceilings.

The accommodation is traditional and spacious and the character of the original building is retained and celebrated; this is apparent none more so than in one of the reception rooms with a painted stone fireplace and log burner, with large refurbished sash windows and high ceilings. The farmhouse kitchen/dining room remains cosy and bright with exposed ceiling beams and windows towards the East allowing floods of morning sunlight. This is comprehensively fitted with a range of floor and wall cabinets and drawers and complete with an Aga, ceramic Belfast sink, tiled floor and French doors to the side. From the kitchen, the utility room has a range of cabinets with space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and large freestanding fridge/freezer.  Additionally, there is a ground floor shower room and study with separate entrance offering a good opportunity to create a self contained annexe - subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.

Taking the stairs to the first floor you approach four beautifully appointed double bedrooms each filled with an abundance of natural light, two of which have an en-suite shower room and three with exposed floorboards. The main bathroom is unfussy and classic; recently and fully modernised where crisp white sanitary ware sits against a selection of cool grey tiles. A bespoke paddle staircase rises to the second floor where the entire space incorporates a fully pine-cladded converted loft space with cloakroom. Windows to three aspects, including three Velux, provide an abundance of natural light to this fifth bedroom.

Heading outside to the rear of the house from the kitchen is a large area of decking, perfect for al fresco dining or enjoying the afternoon and evening sunshine. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and abound open fields. A block paved driveway provides ample off road parking for several vehicles and leads to the large double garage with office space above. To the front is a lovely private patio area with pretty well stocked boarders and a south-westerly orientation. Services to the property include mains gas, water, electricity and drainage with fibre optic broadband. The property also benefits from having solar panels with a feed in tariff.

Little Petherick is a lovely hamlet steeped in history in the wooded valley of Little Petherick Creek, a tidal inlet of the Camel Estuary. The hamlet is situated just two miles from the historic and picturesque fishing town of Padstow, located on the North Coast of Cornwall offering an extensive range of cafes, public houses and restaurants, none more so than Paul Ainsworth's Michelin starred No.6 and of course Rick Steins esteemed Seafood restaurant. An area of outstanding natural beauty, there are several sandy beaches within 2 to 4 miles as well as the championship golf course at Trevose. The town also has a supermarket and excellent Primary School. For more extensive shopping facilities, the thriving market town of Wadebridge is just 5 miles distant and offers a fine selection of shops and amenities including a sports centre, cinema, a primary and secondary school and a selection of supermarkets. The nearest mainline station is Bodmin Parkway which is approximately 18 miles distant with the nearest airport at Newquay approximately 12 miles away. The lane at the front of The Old Farmhouse leads to a footpath which leads to Petherick Creek, The Saints Way and the Camel Trail, a dream for walkers and cyclists alike.

Turn left at the signpost to Wadebridge, St Issey and little Petherick and follow the A389 down the hill for quarter of a mile.
