Bridgerule, Bude, Cornwall
A highly adaptable home comprising TWO SEPARATE DWELLINGS, with a 3 bedroom detached barn conversion with ACTIVE PLANNING to substantially extend and LARGE DETACHED 2 bedroom annexe.
Barnhurst is a detached 3 bedroom barn conversion enjoying an elevated position approximately 3 miles from Bude, where the present owners have retained the character of the accommodation and created two lovely balconies giving a modern twist to the accommodation.
The ground floor timber and glass bounded balcony is accessed from the main reception room of the barn via recently fitted wooden double glazed French doors. South facing, it is a real sun trap and affords views over the surrounding countryside. The main reception is a spacious open plan room with defined areas for relaxing and dining, featuring exposed beams and floorboards. This opens sociably into a quality kitchen with Shaker style units, a built in double oven, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. It has a central skylight allowing plenty of natural light and an exposed stone wall providing character with double doors which open directly onto the lovely rear gardens. Completing the ground floor is the main family bathroom and a useful utility cupboard with plumbing and space for an automatic washing machine.
Upstairs the main bedroom has great views to the south and an extensive range of built-in furniture and the second double bedroom has French doors leading out onto the newly created balcony, where you can have your breakfast or evening meal and enjoy the far reaching sea, coastal and countryside views, with amazing sunsets all year round.
Tied into the planning for the balconies, the present owners gained permission for a large, two storey extension which would be an impressive addition.
The barn benefits from oil fired central heating and externally has a generous gravel hardstanding area providing ample off-road parking for numerous cars or larger vehicles if required, and provides access into the recently built timber double garage, with a concrete floor, power and light and has an electrically controlled door. The gardens are laid to lawn with well-stocked attractive flower beds, with gated access to an area used for an orchard/kitchen garden, which features a shed, a greenhouse and fruit cages. There is a further lawn area behind the garage, bounded by natural hedges.
The two paddocks are accessed off the gravel driveway. The westerly paddock measures approximately 1.1 acres, and has a hay store/workshop, stock proof fencing and has great countryside views. The easterly paddock measures approximately 1.3 acres and has hard-standing, a field shelter with two loose boxes, superb farmland views and is bordered by stock proof fencing.
The Annexe is formed from a timber and steel frame building, which creates the strength to have vaulted ceilings throughout, which has a huge impact on the feel of space and light within the property. Highly insulated and with cement fibre weather-boarding for ease of maintenance, the Annexe comprises an open plan kitchen/living/dining room, two double bedrooms (1 with en-suite) and the main family bathroom. Completed to an exacting standard the kitchen has built-in appliances to coincide with the high-gloss matching units, and both the bathroom and the en-suite are finished to a high standard, with quality sanitary ware.
LP gas fired central heating has been supplied, as well as having a wrap-around deck area to the south and west to enjoy the sun.. Although there is easy access from the barn to the Annexe, there is a high degree of privacy between the two dwellings, with the Annexe having its own entrance gates, parking and lawn garden.
Barnhurst enjoys a quiet rural spot at the end of an un-made lane, surrounded by farmland and has just a handful of neighbours. Being the most elevated property it does enjoy panoramic views to the South and West from different parts of the property, with the sea and the coast visible towards Bude, with amazing sunsets all year round. Approximately 3 miles from the coastal resort of Bude, the property has good access to the village amenities in Stratton, which include a public house, a medical centre, and a County primary school, with Bude itself benefiting from supermarkets, the local comprehensive school, a range of independent businesses in the town centre, a rejuvenated canal area, two popular sandy beaches and lovely cliff top walks. Widemouth Bay and the popular surfing beach lie just 2 miles away from Bude.
Access to the main A30 trunk road via Holsworthy gives excellent access to Exeter, the M5 and beyond, with both the cities of Plymouth and Exeter being within one hours drive. Exeter has an international airport and Plymouth has regular ferries to Europe.
