Traditional Georgian stone-built farmhouse and with two beautifully converted barns, in prime village close to the Camel Estuary.
Ballaminers House and two further converted barn cottages are currently being used as a holiday rental business, situated at the heart of the village on a lane that leads to open farmland. The house is an attractive traditional stone-built farmhouse, it retains desirable features such as sash windows, wooden shutters and flagstone floors. The front elevation has a decorative treatment of granite and slate detail, quietly contrasting with the honey coloured stone façade.
A substantial porch shelters the half glazed front door that leads into the slate floored hall, off which are two reception rooms: to the left a sitting room with an elegant deep-set sash window, alcoves, beamed ceiling and an open fireplace; to the right the east facing morning room, also with wooden window shutters and overlooking the front garden.
An additional snug sitting room with a window seat to aview over the church and the creek, as well as the gardens at the side and the rear of the house. The original kitchen with oil fired Aga, is a bright, warm room, south facing and spacious enough for a large dining table. Off this is a fitted kitchen and a glazed door to a walled courtyard.
There are four bedrooms, currently arranged as three doubles and a twin. Each is a bright, pleasant room, with well-proportioned sash windows and window seats, overlooking the surrounding gardens and fields beyond. There is a modern shower room with heated towel rail, and a spacious bathroom featuring a roll top bath and antique fittings.
Stable Cottage is entered through a stable door directly into the open plan living room and kitchen. A wood burner adds to the cosiness of the room and French doors lead on to a private courtyard. A pretty twin bedroom also has its own door onto a private patio, as does the larger double bedroom, which faces west and has views over the field at the rear. There are wooden floors throughout, except the attractively tiled bathroom, also fitted with roll top bath and modern cascade shower.
Across the yard is Dairy Cottage, also with stable door into the open plan kitchen/sitting/ dining room. With wooden floors, custom-made windows and patio doors, this is also a cosy and bright cottage, conveniently fitted for holiday accommodation. A twin bedroom accesses a modern shower room and the attractive double bedroom has a spacious en suite bathroom. Both cottages have been recently renovated to be fully functioning holiday homes.
The property is accessed from the lane through a five-bar gate into a yard and parking space for several vehicles. The farmhouse sits within attractive terraced gardens with shrubs and apple trees. The walled, south facing courtyard provides additional entertaining space and there is a stone outbuilding for storage. To the west is a meadow with a footpath running along its southern hedge, giving an overall area of about four acres. There are lovely views from every aspect.
