Penelewey Barton Barns
Penelewey Barton Barns are a unique and historic U shaped group of just five mid nineteenth century grade two listed slatestone converted barns. The building's granite quoins and brick arches have been preserved and the sympathetic conversion uses quality painted timber windows and slate roofing to keep the character for future generations. The setting is magical, surrounded by farmland in the heart of rural Cornwall yet just minutes from the sailing waters of the River Fal at Feock and The Cathedral City Of Truro. The views across the countryside are simply breathtaking with the Tregothnan Estate and surrounding landscape stretching for miles! There are two, three bedroom single storey barns and three, two storey four bedroom homes all with carports and gardens. A truly unique and exclusive community in a tranquil setting.
Why You'll Like Barn One
Barn One is a single storey three bedroom property with a sizeable sunny rear garden, parking and a barn style carport. The original building was long, lending itself to conversion into a practical split level bungalow with a lovely outlook into the landscaped courtyard and garden. At one end of the property we have an open plan living space with a sitting area that has French doors opening to the sunny rear garden. The kitchen is a sleek and simple grey design with appliances built-in. Plenty of dining space has also been planned into the design. Throughout the barn there is mains gas central heating via underfloor heating keeping everything cosy. The family shower room is on the same level as the kitchen / dining and living room and doubles as a cloakroom, up steps from the living space there are three generous bedrooms and the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom room. Outside there is a large communal, landscaped courtyard to one side and your own sunny private garden to the other with a mix of patio and lawn. There are two parking spaces and a double carport.
Where It Is
Penelewey Barton is approached via a relatively new access gateway off the Feock Road (B3289) on the left hand side just after the junction with Halvarras Road, Playing Place when travelling towards Feock.
As you enter the site the winding driveway takes you through fields of cattle and gently down hill revealing the complex of barns in a rural location far from the bustle of modern life.
The location is very convenient for swift access to Truro for shopping, restaurants, schools etc and the beautiful River Fal at Loe Beach, Feock where there are great sailing facilities. The National Trust house, gardens and woodland walks at Trelissick are nearby and the outstanding beaches of The Roseland Peninsula can be swiftly accessed via The King Harry Ferry.
With an abundance of rural walks (including the footpath from the barns to the Punchbowl And Ladle pub) on your doorstep this really is a delightful part of Cornwall to call home.
Other local facilities include Kea Primary School, the convenience store, post office petrol station and regular Truro - Falmouth buses at Playing Place.
The barns can be reserved by paying a reservation fee which is not refundable where custom changes have been made to the specification.
