    About this property

    • The property is set within approximately 3.5 acres of open gardens and paddocks, bound by formal hedging, trees and venerable Cornish hedgerows. The house and annexe, gardens and verdant setting make this the perfect rural retreat.

      Broom Park is an impressive, Grade II listed, family home that was completed in 1780 and has been lived in by the current owners for 25 years. The five bay Georgian building is a fine example of an Elvan stone building with granite coining and ashlar window details. There are timber sash windows throughout the building, many of which are said to be original. At each gable end of the property there is a Gothic arch window serving the third floor, creating an unusual and delightful architectural feature of interest.

      The building is arranged over three floors, many rooms with a double aspect, allowing light to flood in from the large sash windows.

      From an enclosed, gravelled arrival court, the main part of the house is entered through an impressive front door on the northern side of the building. Inside, the light and spacious hall lies central to the main living spaces and serves a fine, turning staircase. Just off this main hall is a cloakroom, and boot room under the main stairs. A glazed panel door leads the eye directly through the house to the southern lawns and an oak framed loggia, a focal point for outdoor dining and sheltered relaxation.

      On the ground floor there are two main reception rooms; the family drawing room to the west with a grand marble framed open fireplace and dual aspect sash windows with window seats. To the east is an 'L-shaped' dining room/reading area which was formerly the kitchen with double sash windows in the southern elevation and French doors opening out into the walled garden to the east of the house.

      From this dining area, a perpendicular, single storey, stone barn has become the kitchen with bespoke fitted kitchen cupboards, a range oven and fitted appliances. A glazed door on either side provides access to the walled garden and arrival courtyard. There is a lapsed planning application to extend this room eastwards.

      Leading off the kitchen, descending 3 stairs, is the sixth bedroom or studio with en suite bathroom. This was originally the piggery, its three stable doors now full height windows with one opening onto the courtyard. The room has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and light floods through two heritage roof windows. At the end of this studio is a bathroom with heritage pedestal sink, toilet and an enclosed shower.

      From the central entrance hall, ascending two flights of turning stairs is the first floor and the main sleeping quarters; there are three double bedrooms on this floor and a family bathroom. The bedrooms are carpeted in sisal look flooring while the bathrooms are finished in Amtico dark timber engineered flooring.

      The principal bedroom suite at the east end of the house has sash windows to the front and rear with valuable built in storage cupboards. It has a separate en suite bathroom with heritage porcelain fittings, including a bath and a marble mounted sink.

      The second, central bedroom is a generous double with a good amount of built in storage. Sash windows overlook the front lawn and fields beyond.

      The third bedroom, at the western end of the house is again dual aspect and is currently laid out as a twin room.

      The family bathroom has a heritage porcelain range, with the sink built into a marble countertop in the window recess.

      Continuing up a further double flight of turning stairs, leads you to the third and top floor with open vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. The roof spaces are filled with light from roof windows above and at either end of the property, through the pretty gothic arched windows.

      The western bedroom is a large, double bedroom with plenty of storage space and a pedestal sink.

      A shared shower room is located to the centre of the third floor.

      A smaller, light filled room is located at the eastern end of the house.

      The Orchard House - Outside there are two listed stone rubble sheds along the farm track and the single storey timber Orchard House, converted from stables in 2020. This well insulated and eye catching eco pavilion is clad in Siberian larch and nestles within the orchards to the end of one of the paddocks, well hidden by the ancient Cornish hedge and tree boundaries. This beautifully designed, light filled space could have multiple uses. It is also a sanctuary of peace and quiet which could be an inspiring studio space for creative thinking.

      The Orchard House offers seamless inside and outside spaces with triple folding bifold doors to the side and east end of the building, and decking on three sides. It has a large reception area with space for dining and an anthracite coloured fitted kitchen including a double Bosch oven, integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer unit.

      At the eastern end of the house is an open and airy double bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and bifold doors opening onto a slate patio. There is a wall of storage on one side of the room. Off the bedroom is an en suite shower room, with contemporary porcelain fittings and an open shower with the walls and floors finished in polished micro cement for a seamless smart finish.

      Off the corridor between these two larger rooms is a small studio/office.

      Exterior, gardens and garage - Broom Park is accessed via a shared gravel track, leading into the property's private drive. The parking courtyard is tucked behind the house, offering parking for several cars and access to the timber barn double garage. The house sits to the north west of the plot with the main areas of garden laid out to the south and east of the house. The front garden includes stone terraces, the oak loggia, level large lawns, flower borders and ancient Cornish walls. From the shared approach to the house, is a secondary private drive that leads to the eastern side of the Orchard House where there is a separate gravelled parking area.
