A spacious 4/5 bedroom stone barn conversion with additional 2 bedroom holiday cottage, set just in-land from the magnificent Camel Estuary and Padstow and just a few miles distance away from the spectacular north Cornwall coast. The properties sit in a picturesque and peaceful rural valley, enjoying idyllic views over the neighbouring countryside. The property is also accompanied by a separate modern home office and it is all set within good-sized gardens and grounds (it does not own the surrounding paddocks or land).
The properties are formed from a range of picturesque stone barns, all enjoying delightful countryside views towards the village of St Issey and set within good-sized gardens and grounds. The property is located within the small hamlet of Mellingey, a short distance inland from Padstow and just to the south of the village of St Issey.
The principal residence is two storey and the accommodation has been arranged to maximise the space available, as well as the delightful views. It was designed using a reverse layout, with the bedrooms and bathrooms located on the lower ground floor but the entrance from the parking area is at the same level as the living accommodation and the kitchen, meaning there is no requirement to go up stairs to gain access to the day to day accommodation, which is often the case with this type of design.
The spacious L shaped kitchen diner has French doors opening to an outside balcony where you can enjoy far reaching countryside views. The kitchen is well appointed with a feature white Aga, wooden units with granite work surfaces over and a number of integrated appliances. The spacious sitting room enjoys lots of natural daylight from its triple aspect windows and it also enjoys views as well as having an impressive feature French style open fireplace at its centre. The four / five bedrooms are located on the ground floor, with a master bedroom having an en suite bathroom. The other bedrooms are served a modern family bathroom with a separate shower and there is a further wet room. There is also a delightful wood framed garden room that looks and opens out into a courtyard garden.
Outside, a five bar gate opens on to a driveway that provides parking for several cars and leads to a timber built carport. Immediately adjacent is a good sized contemporary styled, wooden clad modern home office, which our clients use to run their business from. This has electricity and a telephone/ broadband line. On the southerly of the property are two attractive yet separate areas of good-sized lawned garden, linked by a flight of steps. There is a further area of courtyard garden outside the garden room. There is also a sizeable patio area immediately to the front of the property. A second driveway leads from the highway to Badger Cottage, where there is parking for 2 cars. At the rear of Badger Cottage is a private area of lawned garden, overlooking the adjoining fields.
Badger Cottage is an attractive two bedroom barn conversion with a proven holiday letting history. It benefits from two bedrooms, a bathroom and an open plan kitchen reception room. Badger Cottage also has its own garden and patio, overlooking adjoining countryside, as well as parking for 2 cars.
The Barns and Badger Cottage are set just minutes from the spectacular North Cornwall coast, in beautiful rolling countryside that is the pretty hamlet of Mellingey, just to the south of the village of St Issey. The renowned Seven Bays are nearby, offering exceptional surfing beaches and the Harbourside town of Padstow is also just minutes away, providing world class dining and hospitality. The nearby market town of Wadebridge is also a highly regarded area too due to its many excellent shops, schooling and sporting facilities.
