Stunning barn conversion in a picturesque moorland setting, within easy reach of communication links, Bodmin Moor and the North Cornish Coastline.
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.
