An opportunity to acquire a pair of Grade II listed two & three bedroom barn conversions situated within a valley

Mill Barn & Wheel Barn are a pair of interesting Grade II listed barn conversions, originally built in the late 18th Century of local stone. The barns were then converted approximately 15 years ago by the current vendors into residential accommodation with the aim of keeping as many original features as possible yet remaining comfortable and practical. The barns are situated within the grounds of a small working farm, at the end of a long winding, descending driveway in a sheltered valley position on the outskirts of the village affording unique views of Port Isaac. Within a five minute walk along the adjoining public foot path is the famed picturesque village of Port Isaac itself which is located on the unspoilt North Cornish coast.

Mill Barn is a two bedroom property of reverse living design. Around the top of the external walls are eleven pigeon holes for breeding young unfledged pigeons. Inside, the accommodation briefly comprises an open plan lounge/dining room on the first floor with vaulted and beamed ceiling, stable door entrance and Juliette balcony. Separating the lounge and dining room are stairs that rise up from the bedrooms on the ground floor. From the dining room end of this room is a small hall which leads to the shower room with WC and wash basin and a fully fitted kitchen with integral electric cooker and hob, washing machine and fridge/freezer. The ground floor is home to two double bedrooms with a jack and jill cloakroom adjoining both. Across the yard, Mill Barn benefits from an enclosed cottage garden with a small lawn, flower bed, shed and greenhouse. Additionally, there is a block built carport faced in natural stone and a corrugated iron storage facility separated into three segments.

Wheel Barn has very much the same level of character and is also of reverse level design. Much of the original farm machinery remains, retaining much interest for the historian. The huge open plan first floor has an impressive vaulted and beamed ceiling and two fixed original granite grinding stones that make for a unique feature. At one end is a fitted L shaped kitchen, with a dining area in the middle and a lounge area at the far end. Stairs descend to the ground floor where three bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and a shower room can be found. Entombed behind glass with lighting is much of the original mechanics of the barn which makes for an impressive feature. A stable door leads out into the yard where the property benefits from block built carport faced in natural stone and a stone built piggery. There is a private garden behind the property mostly laid to law and an outside utility room with space/plumbing for a washing machine and a sink unit. Services to both Mill & Wheel Barn include mains water and electricity and a shared bio septic tank drainage system.

Port Isaac is a historic picturesque fishing village, which is well known for its role in the current TV programme 'Doc Martin' as the fictional town of 'Portwenn'. It offers many breathtaking walks across the dramatic coastline of North Cornwall as well as its own beach and harbour. There are delightful boutiques and galleries for those who wish to explore the magical narrow streets and to finish off you can always pop into one of the cosy café's, pubs or restaurants. The neighbouring village of Port Gaverne was once a thriving 19th Century fishing port and to this day remains unspoilt with the sheltered sandy beach protected by the National Trust.

To find Mill & Wheel Barn, turn off the B3314 coast road signposted Trelights. Follow the lane into Trelights and through the village following signs for the Longcross Hotel. After passing the Longcross Hotel, follow the left round to the right for approximately 0.25 miles and then take the next lane on the left. Follow the lane down and to the right for about 500 yards. As the lane bares to the left, head straight over onto an unmade track signposted The Mill. Follow this track for approximately ½ a mile as it descends into the valley below. Mill and Wheel Barn can be found at the end of the track on the right hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is PL29 3RX.
