map & location

A 5 bedroom farmhouse set amongst beautiful Wildlife Gardens, Orchard & Flower Meadow.

With an abundance of original features and set within beautiful wildlife gardens and extensive grounds, Tremabyn is an attractive period farmhouse located in a most appealing rural setting surrounded by miles of rolling countryside. The deeds for Tremabyn date back to 1671 and now reside in the Cornwall Records Office. The present house has been dated to about 1750 but is almost certainly on the original site. It appears from the deeds that the original farm and large amount of land around it was locally referred to as the ‘Garden of Lanivet’ and the word Tremabyn is Cornish for ‘Sons Farm’. The present owners have lived in Tremabyn since 1976 and have adapted the property with a sympathetic blend of old and new to create a characterful home of great space and light embedded within established and beautifully maintained wildlife gardens, orchard and flower meadow. Subject to the necessary planning permissions, the adjoining two storey barn has great potential for conversion into further accommodation or a separate dwelling as does the large stone built garage/barn across the courtyard. The beauty of the wildlife gardens and the setting of the property can be fully appreciated via the vendor’s website

Although the original front entrance is to the south and older side of the property, Tremabyn is most commonly entered via the principal reception hall area with a wide galleried landing above. UPVC double glazed French doors with glazed side panels open onto the rear patio and a staircase leads to the first floor. The inner hall area leads into the older part of the house with a part glazed door leading out to a south facing paved sun terrace. A door from the main hall leads into the finely appointed kitchen/dining room with wide oak flooring and a range of contemporary white kitchen units with soft close mechanisms topped by granite work surfaces integrated with a stainless steel sink, eye level electric double oven, electric induction hob and dishwasher. These modern fittings are interspersed by some fantastic original features such as the open beamed ceiling, old meat hooks and deep window sills. The kitchen also incorporates an island unit with cupboards on the other side which open towards the dining room. A wonderful feature of note is the huge old granite fireplace with deep wood lintel and inset slate hearth found in this older part of the house. A door opens into the inner hall and from here another door opens into the large triple aspect sitting room with a granite fireplace with wood lintel over incorporating a wood burning stove and deep slate hearth. The principal hall has doors leading through to a ground floor cloakroom, utility room and a further inner room previously used as a dark room which is now used as a walk-in larder. Double doors then lead from the main hall into the principal lounge with a galleried landing above and double glazing patio doors leading onto the patio at the rear. The huge granite fireplace with wood lintel and slate hearth incorporates a large multi fuel stove and is the focal point of the room. There is a range of fitted bookshelves and a large beam running beneath the galleried landing.

The extensive first floor galleried landing provides a great sense of light and space with large windows overlooking the patio at the rear of the house and a view over the reception hall below. There are doors to all five bedrooms and family bathroom. The principal bedroom in the newer and extended part of the building has a beautiful aspect enjoying miles of countryside views with the town of Bodmin in the distance. An inner door leads into an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom has a modern suite comprising a contoured bath with corner shower area and Mira electric shower over, pedestal wash hand basin, low level wc and full height wall tiling. A hot water cylinder can be found in the double airing cupboard with extensive shelving and a window with deep sill enjoys the wonderful views from the front aspect. The second bedroom is a double room as is bedroom three. Bedrooms four and five are large single rooms and can be utilised as bedrooms or as study/offices.

The property is approached over a well surfaced private lane of just under ¼ of a mile. Bordered by mature hedges and trees, the lane runs between open pasture and eventually opens out onto the extensive area of the old farmyard in front of the property with steps up to the entrance door. Adjoining the house is a boiler room housing the oil fired central heating boiler and a water filter tank taken from the private water supply. A side gate leads into a large area of slate paving on the south side of the property providing an attractive sun terrace with granite steps leading up onto the level lawn with an aspect over the fields beyond. The gardens have been carefully and naturally maintained with formal and informal areas. Above the lawn is a substantial rose garden with slate and granite steps leading up to the top area of garden behind the house which is mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with a variety of mature shrubs and trees. The slate paving continues around to the rear of the house into a small courtyard with further granite steps leading down to the French doors at the rear. There is a wildlife pond with a variety of water born plants and grasses together with a small area of natural meadow maintained with wild flowers and grasses. The gardens extend further to the rear with extensive lawns and an orchard with a variety of apple and other trees. A short ramp leads up to the first floor of the large barn adjoining the house. The ground floor area of the barn opens to the front and rear with old sectioned off areas previously calves houses, now ideal as coal and log stores with a further section of three cow ties and a central storage area. Subject to the necessary planning permissions, the barn has great potential for conversion into further accommodation or separate dwelling. There is a greenhouse in a courtyard, two raised vegetable gardens framed in sleepers and a small garden shed. The large open garage/barn, previously a tractor house and made from granite, offers excellent storage or again has the potential for conversion. Behind this building there are further areas of natural meadow with wild flowers with a trail leading through areas of copse and woodland providing a tranquil setting enjoying views through the trees over miles of open countryside.

Tremabyn is located in a peaceful rural spot just a mile from the village of Lanivet and also a short drive from the settlement of Tregullon, Lanhydrock Golf and Country club and the Eden Project. Bodmin, just two miles distant, is a superbly placed town with good access to the rest of Cornwall and Bodmin Parkway station has excellent rail links to all parts of the country. Newquay airport is approximately 30 minutes away. The town boasts a fine recreational centre, a Primary school, Bodmin College independent academy secondary school and a shopping centre that is home to some major retail chains. The Camel Trail, a popular, almost level cycle route and formerly the railway track, runs for 18 miles between Padstow and Wenford Bridge via Wadebridge and Bodmin. Wadebridge is a thriving market town on the river Camel which offers a fine selection of shops and amenities including a sports centre, cinema, a primary and secondary school and a selection of supermarkets. The town is equal distance from the harbour town of Padstow with all its restaurants and quaint shops and the watersports haven of Rock.
