This magnificent five bedroom detached barn conversion with a uniquely contrasting contemporary intervention

Situated in approximately two acres of cleverly designed and exquisitely maintained gardens and grounds offering extreme privacy and tranquility is The Barn, a magnificent five bedroom detached barn conversion of discerning style with a striking contemporary intervention. In addition, the current vendors have conceived and then constructed a huge live/work studio, workshop and double garage within the curtilage which has a uniquely modern yet agricultural feel to it. Attached to the main property is a single storey self contained annexe which includes two of the bedrooms and can easily be incorporated back into the main accommodation.

The Barn sits privately and discretely within the quiet hamlet of Tregaswith just outside of the former market town of St Columb, just 6 miles from the revered coastal hotspots of Mawgan Porth and Watergate Bay, 11 miles from the historic and picturesque fishing village of Padstow and, conveniently, just 3 miles from Newquay airport.

The gorgeous reclaimed stone and granite building has been extended and doubled in size by the addition of a contemporary intervention which both contrasts and compliments the original stone façade using zinc cladding to distinguish the extension as a separate recognisable volume. Throughout this impressive home are an abundance of appealing features which include exposed granite and stone detail, three wood burners, a combination of UPVC and powder coated aluminum windows and doors, some underfloor heating, a sleek modern kitchen with integrated appliances and pantry, three fantastic reception rooms, a separate utility room and a separate dog shower room. On the first floor landing is a great office space with built in book shelves and desk. There are two good size double bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms and wardrobes. The huge master suite is complete with a luxurious en-suite wetroom/bathroom, a walk in wardrobe and patio doors leading to a generous decked balcony enclosed by structural glass panels.

Attached yet independent from the main body of the house is the self contained annexe. Original stonework, granite lintels and a contemporary aluminum entrance porch make up the front façade. The accommodation comprises an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner with fully fitting cabinets and appliances, a stylish family bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower enclosure and two genuine double bedrooms.

Across the inner courtyard setting sits the live/work unit. Architect designed to fit in with the local vernacular with a modern twist, the building measures over 100 feet in length and contains four separate studios over the two floors with a huge double garage/workshop at the far end. This hugely impressive building represents an excellent opportunity for a commercial venture or for running a business from home.

Externally, The Barn is just as impressive. The formal gardens are exquisitely maintained – elegant lawns border mature and established boundaries with various areas of decking and a 35m reed bed central to the garden creating a beautifully tranquil focal point. The duck pond is also a lovely feature. Beyond the hedge line are large polytunnels, a fruit cage and orchard producing an array of grapes, figs, tomatoes, apples, pears, plums, blueberry’s and raspberry’s. Don’t forget the summerhouse where one can sit back and enjoy the fruits of ones labour! At the end of the garden beyond the trees is an uncultivated area where there is potential for a building plot. This has separate five bar access from the highway and would be subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent. Behind the house are a series of immaculate raised beds, shrubs and small trees. All in all, the gardens and grounds constitute approximately two acres. Services to the property include mains and borehole water supply, mains electricity, LP tanked gas and private drainage system.

The locality of The Barn allows for peaceful semi rural living yet is within easy reach of main transport links via the A39 and Newquay Airport which are just minutes away. As such, we at Jackie Stanley highly recommend an internal and external viewing at the earliest opportunity to fully appreciate everything this unique property has to offer.

The quiet hamlet of Tregaswith sits just outside of the favoured town of St Columb, an old market town which was the historic banking capital of North Cornwall. The Bishops Palace, built in the 17th Century, is still in existence. This vibrant Cornish town offers a comprehensive range of amenities including a butchers, a Co-Op, a post office, a chemist, library, antique shop, two cafes, public houses, a restaurant, a hairdressers and barbers, a large hardware store and a variety of other small shops. St Columb Primary School is recognised as an outstanding academy school. The town lies approximately 6 miles inland of the revered coastal hotspot of Mawgan Porth with its stunning sandy beach and the multi award winning Bedruthan Hotel and spa. Within 11 miles is the historic and picturesque fishing village of Padstow which offers 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. The Barn is a great base from which to explore the surrounding coastline and within easy motoring distance are the beautiful beaches of Harlyn Bay, Trevone Bay, Constantine Bay and Treyarnon all offering access to the south west coast path. The nearest mainline station is Bodmin Parkway which is approximately 16 miles distant with the nearest airport at Newquay just 3 miles away with domestic and international flights.

To find The barn, leave Padstow and follow the A389 for approximately 6.5 miles passing Trevisker Garden Centre along the way. Continue along the A389 as it becomes the B3274 and follow all the way to Winnards Perch roundabout. At the roundabout, turn right onto the A39 and drive to the next roundabout. Take the second to last exit onto the A3059 signposted to Newquay and follow for just under a mile. Turn left at the junction to Tregaswith and into the hamlet. The Barn is the last property on the right hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is TR8 4HY.
