A highly unique 4 bedroom Grade II listed farmhouse full of original character with a self

Fenterleigh is an interesting and extremely unique Grade II listed farmhouse oozing with original character, quirky and charming and highly versatile with a 1 bedroom self contained annexe and a separate detached 2 bedroom cottage. Situated in a slightly elevated position within its own gardens and grounds, the property enjoys a magnificent outlook across open farmland with panoramic views to the ocean beyond.

Dated circa 1320, part of the property is a Cornish longhouse and is reputed to be the second oldest property in Tintagel. Throughout are slate floors, beamed ceilings, large fireplaces, wood burning stoves and even a cloam oven. Unconventional in layout, there is unique character at every turn. Within this part of the property is an inviting sitting room with feature stone inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove and wooden spiral open tread staircase rising to the first floor. The dining room is again home to an inglenook fireplace, beamed ceiling and slate floor which in turn leads into the kitchen. Fitted with a range of cupboards, drawers and shelves, there is space for a large Range cooker and fridge/freezer. From the dining room, an open archway leads to the newer part of the property which was built circa 1900.

The central reception hall and porch has a beautiful Victorian tiled floor, stairs rising to the first floor, a door off to the living room and door off to the annexe. The lounge is a classic Victorian reception room with a high ceiling, picture rails, open fire and tall sliding sash windows. On the other side of the hall is the annexe. This is self contained and briefly comprises of a double bedroom, kitchen, lounge and bathroom. French doors open onto the garden and views of the sea can be enjoyed. Perfect for a dependant relative or as holiday let accommodation. Up on the first floor, the Victorian part of the property is home to two double bedrooms both with a dual aspect and one with superb views of the coastline and sea. A couple of steps then lead down into the first floor of the older part. Here, there is a bathroom, separate wc and characterful double bedroom. Accessible through this bedroom is a hobbies room or potential fourth bedroom from which a staircase descends into the sitting room.

Located across the central courtyard is Carpenters Cottage, a separate self contained 2 bedroom cottage offering comfortable and well planned accommodation on one level. This comprises of a spacious living/dining room with a vaulted and beamed ceiling, a small yet cleverly designed galley kitchen, two bedrooms and large wet room/shower room. Carpenters Cottage provides a great opportunity to generate an income from holiday letting or equally provide accommodation for a dependant relative.

Fenterleigh is approached from a quiet country lane onto an ample parking area at the front. There are extensive mature gardens principally laid to lawn enjoying far reaching views to coastline and sea beyond, all enclosed within stone walls and established boundary hedges. At the far end is a raised timber decked terrace enjoying panoramic views of the ocean, a perfect spot for a BBQ. The gardens continue to wrap around the side of the property where there is a vegetable patch and timber Summerhouse, cleverly situated to take in the stunning far reaching views. A further area of enclosed garden can be found immediately to rear of property enjoying the upmost privacy and seclusion. From here, there is access to a ground floor storeroom. A small slate and stone courtyard garden sits between Fenterleigh and Carpenters Cottage. Back at the front there is a garage attached to Carpenters Cottage with power and light connected, a great storage space. Services to the property include mains water and electricity, septic tank drainage and an oil fired central heating system.
