About this property

  • Built in the local materials of De Lank granite and Delabole slate Merrymeeting Farm is a most attractive blend of the traditional and the modern. The solidity of the original barn is overlaid with a contemporary style owing to the light and space afforded by generous ceiling height and enlarged windows/patio doors.

    Enter through the wide oak door into the spacious hall with its calming view of the courtyard fountain. Slate floored but invitingly warm due to the underfloor heating, this is a beautiful entrance.

    An oak and glass staircase, naturally lit by the double storey glazed entrance, arrives at an impressive drawing room with a high open beamed ceiling. French doors open onto a sun terrace and stunning views over the valley, woodland and surrounding fields. A wood burner, radiators powered by ground source heating, and oak floor ensure a warm atmosphere. Adjacent is an office /study, an attractive double aspect room with a Juliet balcony overlooking the lawned garden and drive.

    On the ground floor the hall is central to the original building and the wing that was added in 2017. This extended area incorporates on the ground floor two beautiful double bedrooms with en suites, two ample storage rooms, a guest cloakroom and coat cupboard as well as a large room with a wood burner, currently furnished as a living room, which has previously been a self- contained kitchen and dining room. Conveniently connected to a bathroom, this could also be a large bedroom if required. There is an entrance porch and door into the garden and path to the parking area, making this an easily separated annexe.

    Stairs lead to the first floor principal bedroom suite, luxuriously appointed with a dressing room and large bathroom, a bio ethanol fireplace, balcony and the stunning views as before.

    From the hall a corridor leads into another large guest room with exceptionally spacious storage and en suite bathroom.
    The sunroom at the end of the hall leads to the kitchen wing via an open plan dining room, with this whole extended area overlooking the delightful courtyard garden and pond. With open oak beams and glazed roof, electric ceiling blinds moderate the light.

    Up steps to the kitchen, another light and airy room with high open beams, the far end completely glazed and patio doors opening onto the courtyard. This kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with a range of high-quality appliances including a wine fridge, two double ovens, two warming drawers, integrated coffee machine, induction hob and extractor, boiling and water filter taps, with a generously sized central island providing a breakfast bar.

    Throughout the interior there is generosity of space and maximum use of natural light. Wood burners add to the atmosphere while ground source heated radiators and underfloor heating provide consistent warmth and comfort.

    A spacious laundry/utility room is just steps from the kitchen and adjoins the granite and wood-clad double garage and plant room. There is ample storage for garden tools and equipment. Electronic gates open into the drive from the road. The 0.8acre garden wraps around the property and is mainly laid to lawn with well-kept hedges, mature shrubs and trees and a raised vegetable garden. The courtyard garden, paved and with gravel paths and a stone water feature, is designed for maximum enjoyment of its sheltered south facing aspect.

  • A mile up the hill lies Blisland, one of Cornwall's prettiest villages, clustered around a tree-lined village green and with a historic church, described in the writing of the late poet laureate, Sir John Betjeman, “ Of all the country churches I have seen of the West, I think that Blisland is the most beautiful” There is a strong community spirit demonstrated particularly by the thriving community-owned shop and post office and the popular Blisland Inn.
