LOCATION
Though enjoying such an attractive country setting, the property is within a short drive of the B3268 road between the larger centre of Bodmin to the north and the attractive small town of Lostwithiel to the south set on the lowest bridging point of the River Fowey, and is less than ten minutes drive from its junction with the A30 trunk road dual carriageway giving quick access to Exeter in less than one hour and other parts of the country. Newquay Cornwall Airport is about a twenty minute drive giving access to an increasing range of inland as well as international destinations and Bodmin Parkway main line railway station is less than ten minutes drive. Close by is the stunning house and grounds of Lanhydrock House maintained by The National Trust and also Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf and Country Club. About a twenty minute drive only is the coastal town and deep water port of Fowey. Close by and leading over the top of Helman Tor is the Saints Way, an old path dating back to the middle ages extending from Fowey to the south through to the harbour town of Padstow on the north Cornwall coast.

THE HOUSE
Roundhouse Barn has a most attractive setting near the end of a quiet country lane and just around a corner from an entrance into the wonderful scenery of Redmoor Nature Reserve with its ponds and an abundance of wildlife. The property faces south and has fine views towards the well known beauty spot of Helman Tor. The property was skilfully designed for its conversion by the present owners' architects around 1990 with emphasis on warmth of surroundings and large scale rooms. This is complemented by the main house having its two double and en-suite bedrooms and the third and equally large guest bedroom and bathroom in the annexe and adjoining workshop just a few feet away. The property was originally a horse driven mill with drive shaft parts evident in the kitchen where the mill was originally driven.

The kitchen and dining room is very much a family room and this all makes a great home for entertaining. This room is of irregular shape with vaulted ceiling and substantial old beams and a previously horse drawn circular mill wheel, reclaimed terracotta floor tiles, Butler sink with pillar taps set in wooden floor unit, further wooden floor units with slate worktop over and wall mounted dresser top over, range cooker with electric oven and Calor gas 6 ring hob, grill and two ovens, ducted hood over and two external doors.

A third door leads to the utility/boot room with built in storage cupboard, plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, cupboard housing a Worcester oil fired boiler (back up for heating) and a large 700 litre hot water storage cylinder in one corner. A door leads to the outside and a further internal door is to the cloakroom with w.c. and wash basin.

The spacious sitting room has a reclaimed terracotta tiled floor, fireplace at one end with inset wood burning stove and a unique hand crafted surround with inlaid shells and a slate mantle and hearth. A door opens to the side covered terrace seating area and to the left of the fireplace there is a turned staircase to the first floor. To the right there is a lobby leading to the ground floor double bedroom with reclaimed terracotta floor tiles and a high sloping ceiling. Also adjoining the lobby is the ground floor bathroom which features an old cart door opening with window inset, separate shower cubicle, bath with shower head taps, w.c. and wash basin.

On the first floor, the very large master bedroom has double aspect windows with great country views and double doors that open to an external staircase. There are three built in wardrobes and reclaimed oak flooring.

The bathroom adjoining also has reclaimed oak flooring, corner shower, bath with shower head taps, w.c. and wash hand basin.

The annexe bed/sitting room is a light room with traditional windows and roof windows to front and rear, tiled floor, stable door to exterior, built in airing cupboard housing a hot water storage cylinder and leading through to the bathroom. This has a bath with shower head taps, w.c. and wash basin and a roof window.

The adjoining workshop has power, lights and water laid on and an internal door that opens into the annexe bed/sitting room which could be integrated to create a kitchen subject to any consents that may be required to form an independent unit of accommodation, perhaps ideal for holiday letting as well as guest accommodation.

THE GARDENS AND FIELD
Our photographs and land plan we hope will give a good representation of the delightful grounds.

From the lane with the house on the right, a pedestrian gate opens into the court between the house and annexe with its small paved terrace for the annexe and large greenhouse beyond. To the left, opposite the house, is a large open garage. Going past the house and down the lane a five bar gate opens into the vehicle entrance drive through the garden to the back of the house and parking area. The garden adjoining the house then opens up from paths and mature lawns, flower borders and a profusion of mature shrubs and trees, low hedges and a garden pond. The paved terrace with its high quality permanent gazebo adjoins the sitting room door and stone staircase to the bedroom above.

To the south of the drive the garden here has a range of fruit and other trees and a fenced in vegetable garden. A gate to the south opens into a small fenced area with a further large bank of photo voltaic solar panels and then into the large field in permanent pasture and considered ideal to locate a loosebox or adapt the old stone building in the centre of the field. The field is at present let on a casual tenancy but vacant possession will be provided.
