About this property

  • Blankednick Barn is constructed of rendered stone elevations under a slate roof and was converted in the 1980's, providing spacious, bright and flexible accommodation over one floor with most of the rooms having the benefit of vaulted double height ceilings.

    From the courtyard in front of the building, an entrance porch leads via steps into a large dining hall with slate flooring and an archway leading to the spacious sitting room, with wood burning stove and French doors that open onto an enclosed sun terrace.

    Leading off the dining hall, there is a second reception room or fifth bedroom, a WC and door to the kitchen, which has a good range of units, a two-oven gas Aga and plenty of space for a fridge/freezer and farmhouse style table. From the kitchen, there is access to utility room and boot room, with stable door to the cart lodge/parking area.

    The bedrooms are accessed via a hallway from the dining hall, with the principal bedroom being at the far end of this wing. This room has an extensive range of built-in cupboards and en suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. Off the corridor are three further double bedrooms all with built-in cupboards and enjoying lovely views across the paddocks and countryside beyond. There is also a family bathroom with bath and separate shower.

    Attached to the barn is an impressive cart barn and storage area with clock tower above, providing five covered parking bays, three of which belong to Blankednick Barn. Above the parking area is ladder access to a large storage area.

    At the front of the property is the pretty courtyard garden with log store and gate that leads out onto the private lane and across to the two paddocks, woodlands and river beyond.

    The two paddocks are well fenced, with vehicular access leading down to a substantial storage shed/workshop building, currently used to store garden equipment. The building has its own 3 phase electric and water supply, and has potential for a variety of alternative uses, subject to the necessary consents. There is also an orchard with a selection of productive fruit trees including apple, cherry, pear, medlar and fig.

    Beyond the paddocks is an area of woodland that leads down to the river Kennall that forms the bottom boundary of the property. There is also a further water supply in the top paddock. Beyond the courtyard garden is a further area of parking for approximately 2-3 cars.

Local information

  • Blankednick Barn is set in the centre of a small cluster of properties in a quiet rural location within easy access of both Falmouth and Truro and only one mile from Ponsanooth. Ponsanooth is a traditional Cornish village, tucked away from the main tourist hotspots with a particularly interesting history based around the river Kennall that runs through the village and along the bottom boundary of Blankednick Barn.
  • Ponsanooth was a hive of industry during the 18th and 19th century, being home to a gunpowder works that ceased activity in 1910 and is now the Kennall Vale Nature Reserve, providing twenty acres of woodland, with waterfalls and some fantastic wildlife. The village also has an award-winning village shop, a recently restored chapel/community hall, a pub and primary school.
  • The surrounding countryside provides ample opportunities for walkers and sports enthusiasts. There are good local golf courses within easy reach and of course many sailing clubs throughout the Carrick Roads.
  • The Cathedral city of Truro, the administrative centre of Cornwall is a short drive away and offers a very good range of schooling both state and private, a mainline rail link to London Paddington, an excellent range of national and independent shops, restaurants and bars along with a cinema, museum and a highly regarded theatre (currently under refurbishment).
  • A few miles to the south is the vibrant port and university town of Falmouth with excellent leisure and water sports facilities and safe sandy beaches.
