South Yolland Farmhouse is a historic home dating back hundreds of years with a wealth of character on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Previously on 28th July 2018 Cornwall council provided some pre-application advice and guidelines for the sensitive renovation and upgrading of the building. This extensive document can be found by navigating to the application number PA18/02023/PREAPP on the Cornwall Council planning register. The accommodation is significant and would suit those buyers looking for a project and the opportunity to create their own home in these wonderful surroundings. The sweeping gravelled driveway and gardens, as well as, the 11.51 acres of pasture are all a key ingredient, making a viewing of the property recommended at the earliest opportunity.
Beyond, the attractive external elevations lies the spacious accommodation which stands within a Cornish stone and granite exterior under a slated roof. There is a significant volume of reception space including an entrance hall, from which the stairs ascend to the first floor. The lounge is a good size and light and airy and is dominated by the large granite lintel which proudly sits above the floor to ceiling fireplace. The sitting room, like the lounge, has a slated floor and a further stone fireplace. The magnificent former cider press is a large room with the original press still in situ. The inner hall, is referred to as the breakfast room where a secondary narrow staircase also extends to the first floor. Some wonderful slated shelving is displayed in the utility room and the large farmhouse style kitchen has a fireplace recess for an Aga type appliance and room for a table. Completing this level is the formal dual aspect dining room which has space for a good sized table and again a fireplace recess.
On the first floor, which can be accessed by two separate staircases are the bedrooms. The master bedroom, along with bedroom two, both have fireplaces and large window openings making the very best of the far reaching views over the valley. Bedroom three is a double room and leads through to the fourth bedroom which is the former apple loft and above the cider press. Bedroom four also has plenty of natural light with a roof window and access via a door to the side garden.
The character and potential of the property is highly visible throughout. It may be possible subject to obtaining a formal consent to alter the internal configuration of the rooms.
Externally, South Yolland Farmhouse is approached by a private gate and cattle grid which opens into the sweeping gravelled driveway that gently descends to the home. At all points, the dramatic views over the Lynher Valley towards Kit Hill can be enjoyed. At the side, is a raised gently sloping paddock. At the front of the farmhouse is a level garden that is well enclosed by some attractive stone walling with a public footpath adjacent. The land is laid into a further three large blocks which is gently sloping pasture and therefore ideal for those who wish to keep stock or enjoy the idea of having their own space.
