About this property

  • Recently converted by Andrew Bloomfield Building Ltd, a boutique Cornish development firm, specialising in contemporary new builds and barn conversions, Lower Bradford Barn brings years of experience to fruition in a meticulously planned and beautifully crafted project.

    From a paved parking area in front of the building, the entrance porch leads to a square hall and a turning oak staircase. To the left is a charming, double aspect sitting room, filled with natural light from French doors and two additional windows overlooking the landscaped entrance. A wood burner and timber beams complete the cosy feel of the room.

    Across the hall a corridor leads to a generous dining room which connects to the spectacular kitchen and living space, each with glazed doors opening onto the very spacious rear patio overlooking the landscaped gardens. The versatility of these interconnected rooms allows for entertaining on a generous scale. The slate floor and dove grey fittings of the kitchen create an attractively modern space, naturally lit by its south and north facing aspect.

    Off the kitchen another hall leads first to a beautifully fitted bathroom, and then to three double bedrooms, each benefitting by windows to the south and views of the tree lined entrance. Also, on this floor is a utility room, a guests' cloakroom and a storage cupboard.

    An oak and glass staircase arrives at a most impressive square landing, a space that could have many uses: with its vaulted ceiling and Velux windows it is both a cosy and bright space at the same time – a recurring feature of this house. A large water tank in a cupboard off the landing is fitted with a solar coil, ready for solar panel installation if required.

    There are two good sized bedroom suites on the first floor, the principal room with a digitally controlled shower in its en suite, and French doors onto a balcony with stairs leading down to the garden. The second bedroom suite on this floor has large Velux windows and a walk-in wardrobe leading to a stunning shower room.

    There is under-floor heating throughout the ground floor and radiators on the first floor, serviced by an oil-fired boiler. Architectural details throughout both floors include light oak beams, oak internal doors, slate sills to every window and oak lintels to most. All external doors and windows are double glazed and maintenance free, with timber effect frames which blend seamlessly into the buildings traditional stone elevations.

    The extensive grounds have been landscaped to make the most of views and the shelter afforded by magnificent mature trees. Granite hedges and terraces wrap around the house very attractively and additional hard landscaping is made up of sandstone paving, block paving and gravel to complement the overall mellow colours of the house's exterior.

    Currently nearing completion is a granite built one bedroomed annexe and there is also a detached garage with space for garden tool storage.

Local information

  • Lower Bradford Barn is set on the edge of a beautiful and unspoilt rural hamlet, less than two miles from the A30, yet a haven of peace, surrounded by magnificent trees and the sounds of moorland nature. The ‘broad ford' is the crystal clear De Lank River, spanned since the 17 c. by a granite clapper bridge leading to a farm at the end of the lane.
  • This unexpectedly sheltered spot, is typical of the contrasts in the parish of Blisland, characterised by wooded valleys and farmsteads, streams and rivers as well as the granite tors and familiar moorland grazing for ponies, sheep and cattle.
  • The neighbouring village of St. Breward to the north, with its vibrant community, is close by, with a parish home to two of Cornwall's most well-known land marks, Roughtor and Brown Willy Tor rising up to 1360 feet. The village has local amenities including a village shop, primary school, post office, a pub with an excellent reputation and the village boasts the highest Church in Cornwall at about 700ft.
  • Blisland, to the south, has a beautiful village green, alongside which is the CAMRA award winning Inn and on the opposite side, a Norman church, restored in the 19 c. and described, by the late Sir John Betjeman as “this holy and peaceful place ... can hardly be bettered in the kingdom”.
  • Wadebridge, one of Cornwall's most popular market towns, is found at about 10 miles to the west of the property, providing an extensive range of cultural, commercial, educational and retail facilities. Communications are good with easy access to the A30 and a mainline railway station found at Bodmin. Newquay and Exeter International airports are both within easy reach and offer daily flights to London.
