Why You'll Like It
The location of this rural equestrian property epitomises real Cornwall with country lanes, pretty views and reminders in the landscape of the bygone mining and farming heritage with dramatic engine houses and historic Cornish hedges. The property is hidden away up an impressive driveway with dry stone walling and electric gates hung from towering granite gate posts. There is ample parking and a large stable and workshop block are the first thing you see as you drive in. The property itself is understated and designed to blend with the landscape. The stable block is of course attractive to anyone with animals but also presents a great opportunity with huge future potential subject to any necessary consents. The main home is a four bedroom split level rustic timber clad bungalow style property with four bedrooms and copious living space. Stepping inside, there is a useful entrance porch and boot room leading to the kitchen. The kitchen itself is an exciting and stylish upbeat cook's galley kitchen with a practical layout and two multi-function ovens, built-in microwave and wide gas hob. There's plenty of useful work surface and the view from the kitchen window is sublime with a Cornish wall before one of the paddocks where you can keep an eye on your animals while whipping up a meal! There's a built-in dishwasher and space for an American style fridge / freezer. A useful utility room keeps the practical laundry tasks hidden away. From the kitchen several steps up take you to a huge open plan living / dining / day room space and you immediately notice the upcycled maple floor which was reclaimed from an indoor sports hall. Throughout the property there are wonderful ideas making for an inspirational modern space. There's a further snug / lounge and the property has four bedrooms, (two of which are en-suite) and the family bathroom. Outside the land extends to circa five acres and has four paddocks and a former sand school area. There are three generous stables in a block and a vast workshop / garage of approximately 11m x 5m. A formal garden has been created with dry stone walling, a patio and a place for a fire pit and our favourite feature of this amazing home... the home bar / "pub". This useful cabin in the garden is presented as a home bar, the perfect place to relax with friends. Of course the cabin has many other potential uses but we see no reason to change it! This fabulous home offers the opportunity for the good life in rural Cornwall and must be viewed to be appreciated.
Where It Is
In a rural location between St Day and Redruth, Higher Ninnis is a typical Cornish hamlet tucked down a country lane with gorgeous and far reaching views. The nearest village is St Day where you'll find an array of everyday amenities including a convenience store, primary school, butchers and pub etc. The Star Inn at Vogue is highly recommended for their warm welcome and hearty food and the market town of Redruth is a short drive away and is thriving with many national and independent retailers, a cinema and theatre with a lively Amateur Dramatic Society. The Penventon Park Hotel has a highly regarded restaurant, swimming pool and gym. Transport links are excellent with a mainline train station with a regular service to London Paddington and the North of England. The north Cornish coast is a short drive away with the popular family resort of Portreath within easy reach. With both senior and junior schools, an excellent rugby club, doctors, dentists and a community hospital at Barncoose, it is hard to think of a more convenient place to live.
