A substantial four bedroom former farmhouse of great style & character, exquisitely presented

Higher Polgrain Farm is an exquisitely refurbished and substantial former farmhouse, circa 1790, presented to the highest of standards and nestled comfortably in approximately three acres of formal manicured gardens and pasture. This rare home of style and character is set in an envious elevated position with views over the surrounding unspoilt countryside and would make for a superb family home. Additionally, the attached former pool room offers excellent potential to extend the property significantly or to create an annexe; subject to building regulations. With five double bedrooms and three reception rooms, the property has been tastefully updated to provide modern convenience whilst preserving an abundance of original character features. It is surrounded by an acre of beautiful lawned gardens and suntrap patios as well as an adjoining two acre paddock. This is a lifestyle opportunity not to be missed and we at Jackie Stanley highly recommend a viewing at the earliest opportunity.


The ground floor accommodation consists of a spacious entrance hall that has exposed oak floorboards, a turned staircase that rises to the first floor and storage cupboard beneath. From here there is a door to the utility room, having a range of floor and wall pine cupboards with contrasting worktop. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a composite 1.5 bowl sink unit is recessed in the corner. At this end of the house there is also a good size study/bedroom 5 with built in recessed alcoves and a window seat. There is a cloakroom with a white suite and slate flagstone floor. The hallway continues through the ground floor and leads to the sitting room. This has a large exposed stone fireplace with a slate hearth and inset cast iron multi fuel stove and a window seat with a lovely aspect that overlooks the patio garden at the rear.


Opposite this is the kitchen that is comprehensively fitted with a range of floor and wall wooden cabinets and drawers with a contrasting worktop and tiled splashback. The focal point of the kitchen is certainly the cream coloured oil fired Aga with twin hot plates and double ovens below. There is an inset 1 1/2 bowl sink unit, space and plumbing for a dishwasher and windows overlook the surrounding gardens. This is open plan to the light and bright breakfast/dining room that has attractive exposed stonework, French doors open to the patio at the rear and a door leads to the pool room; a tiled stone floor and open archway leads back into the inner hall. The former pool room has huge potential for conversion into additional accommodation. Currently, it offers an oval concrete swimming pool, now not in use, with paved flooring all around and beautiful exposed stone walling, a triple aspect overlooking the surrounding gardens and a beamed ceiling with clear corrugated roofing. At the rear of the room a door leads out to the gardens at the side. Back through the breakfast/dining room, oak French doors lead into the drawing room. This is a wonderfully spacious and light room with large windows to two aspects overlooking the gardens and French door leading out to the sunken terraced patio. Oak flooring flows through the room with the focal point being the stone fireplace with coal effect gas fire.


On the first floor there is a spacious landing with doors to all rooms. All four bedrooms are generous size doubles, the master bedroom having an en-suite bathroom that is L shaped and comprises twin his and hers wash hand basins with cupboards beneath, low level WC, a fully tiled glass shower enclosure, a chrome heated towel rail and tiled floor. The master bedroom also benefits from a roof terrace with a rear elevation that offers fantastic views over the gardens and paddock. The second bedroom also has an aspect to the rear and built in wardrobes as does the third bedroom with the fourth having a front aspect. The main bathroom is beautifully appointed with a double-ended bath enclosed by attractive mosaic tiling complete with concertina glass shower screen and shower unit above. The bathroom is completed by a crisp white pedestal wash hand basin and wc suite, towel rail and a tiled floor. Down the steps to the left hand side of the house, there is a cellar. This has power and light connected and provides a dry space for storage. To the right hand side of the property is the boiler room.


Higher Polgrain Farm is approached from the leafy country lane over a tarmac driveway with turning space and ample parking for several vehicles, with additional parking available beyond. There is a large area of lawned garden to the front of the house, interspersed with an established variety of shrubs and trees. To the rear of the house are beautifully landscaped terraced areas of gently sloping lawn set above natural stone walling together with a lovely sunken wrap-around paved sun terrace, taking advantage of the south west facing aspect. The gardens sweep around the side of the house to a further area of shaded lawn. Beyond the rear garden is the paddock, standing at approximately two acres, fully enclosed with a post and rail fence and natural hedge boundaries; it has road frontage accessed through a five bar gate. Within the paddock stands a huge polytunnel measuring 90’ by 30’ home to an array of custom built raised wooden beds where the current vendors are growing an abundance of fruit and vegetables. Adjacent to this is a chicken run and up in the far corner is a wooden field shelter with a fenced pen of approximately 50’ by 20’, where the vendors have reared pigs. Services to the property include mains water and electricity, septic tank drainage and Biomass central heating.


Higher Polgrain Farm is centrally located in the county within easy reach of the towns of Padstow, Wadebridge and St. Austell with local amenities found at nearby St Columb Major and Roche. The nearest school at St Wenn is just a mile from the property. The countryside that surrounds the hamlets of St Wenn and Rosenannon is truly unspoilt, with views from the property that extend for miles over the surrounding landscape. The popular North and South coast beach resorts are just a 20 minute drive away. A number of local attractions, including the Camel Trail, Eden Project and Goss Moor National Nature Reserve, are also easily accessible. Excellent road links of the A30 and A39 are less than 10 minutes away and Newquay Airport, with international and domestic flights, is just 6 miles distant.
