About this property

  • From the courtyard in front of the building, enter through the east facing door into a hall with cloakroom off and then into the large L-shaped kitchen, dining and sitting room. The kitchen is bright with natural light from windows facing east, south and west, as well as a tri-fold door leading from the dining area onto a terrace overlooking the gardens. The doors and windows are Swedish designed 'Rationel' and of high quality. The flooring throughout the downstairs is slate effect porcelain tiled, warmed by energy efficient, air sourced underfloor heating.

    Kitchen fittings and appliances are also of excellent quality, including a 1100mm wide Rangemaster stove with induction hob and extractor over, Blomberg American style fridge/freezer plumbed in for chilled filtered water and ice making and a Blomberg dishwasher. Other features include a fabulous island, light oak worktops, and atmospheric lighting. The dining area can accommodate a generous dining table and the sitting area allows for large sofas from which to enjoy the view and the wood burner.

    A central hallway leads to the utility room and then to a lobby, useful also as a boot room, with a side door to the courtyard and parking. Also, off the hallway is a double bedroom with en suite shower. There is a further double bedroom with bathroom adjoining. Next is the large principal bedroom with en suite shower room. All these rooms are fitted with attractive plantation blinds and light oak doors, continuing the light, bright, contemporary theme throughout the house.

    A turning staircase arrives at the landing and a fourth bedroom, the main feature of which is the view from its window to the west, as well as plenty of storage under the eaves. Adjoining this is a shower room of innovative, space saving design. Two further steps leads to the heating plant room and to an attic playroom or storage space, of limited height with exposed beams and large Velux window, again with wonderful views to the west. The landing area is also well lit by a Velux window and has a deep shelf with a modem point making it suitable for a work space or children's' play station area.

    Gardens and grounds - The exterior of the barn is as thoughtfully designed and well laid-out as the interior, with locally - quarried stone walls dressed with granite quoins and window reveals under a Delabole rag slate roof. Timber cladding adds a stylish contrast.

    The lawned gardens offer spectacular and far-reaching views from a sheltered terrace, providing a wonderful entertaining and alfresco dining space. There is an established herb garden, young ash and silver birch trees and climbing roses among many other flowering shrubs to complement the setting. It is also fully fenced with young hedging denoting the property boundary.

    The courtyard setting of the double car port and garage has been landscaped partly with block paving, assorted planting, slate and granite features, which complement the mellow colours of the surrounding architecture. In the top corner of the garden, and adjacent to the garage window, is a sheltered hard standing area, which also enjoys the wonderful views, and might appeal to buyers to erect a summerhouse or home office thereon.

Local information

  • The setting of Polglaze Barn could hardly be bettered, for anyone seeking a peaceful, rural location. The lane from the St Mabyn village to Longstone road ends at Polglaze, where the only neighbours are the original farmhouse and a smaller barn, both beautifully restored using the same traditional materials as Polglaze Barn.
  • The views to the west, over the garden, fields and extensive woodland, is entirely open and spans notable landmarks such as Stepper Point, St Minver Church, St Endellion Church and the Camel Estuary. Magnificent sunsets are often enjoyed as the sun sets throughout the seasons in full view, over the distant hills or the estuary.
  • St Mabyn is a thriving village with its community shop and post office, primary school, the popular Inn and Haywood Farm Cider, a great attraction with live music in summer months. The beautiful parish church stands as a high landmark amidst the picturesque countryside.
  • From the end of the access lane there is an excellent network of public footpaths leading to both St Mabyn and St Tudy, both little over a mile away.
  • Wadebridge is the nearest town and offers a good range of shops, restaurants and amenities, including a senior school, the Camel Trail, and is a popular sports and cultural hub, hosting a variety of events annually, including the Cornwall Folk Festival and the Royal Cornwall Show.
  • Neighbouring parishes, St Kew and St Tudy have well-established pubs and restaurants which are very popular, while Rock, Port Isaac and Padstow are within easy reach for fine dining. Being so close to the Camel Estuary and the Atlantic coast the opportunities for sailing, swimming, surfing, golf, coast walking and all manner of outdoor activities are obvious and make this a desirable area in which to live.
