Positioned betwixt the staggeringly beautiful North Cornish coastline and the rugged landscape of Bodmin Moor, Helstone is a small hamlet set within the ancient parish of Lanteglos. Whilst the hamlet offers little in the way of amenities other than the championship golf course, Bowood Park, the nearby market towns of Camelford and Wadebridge feature a comprehensive range of professional services, supermarkets, public houses, boutiques and restaurants. Furthermore, the hamlet is within an easy striking distance of the beautiful North Cornish coastline being approximately 5 miles to the stunning beach of Trebarwith Strand and only ten miles to the renowned surfing hot spot of Polzeath along with the famous sailing waters of Rock and Padstow just beyond. As such, the location offers the perfect blend of rural tranquillity throughout the summer months yet fantastic access to a range of desirable destinations.
Lodge Court Barn, believed to have once been a grain barn that is use dates to the early nineteenth century, is a truly magnificent example of how a period stone barn should be converted into a residence having been fully renovated and extended by the current owners over the past six years. Approached from a country lane, via a 5-bar gate and bordered by an ancient hedgerow full of wildflowers and mature trees, is a substantial gravelled area providing ample parking for several cars as well as access to a detached timber garage. To the immediate front of the property is an extensive garden area, perfect for outdoor entertaining which the current owners have laid artificial lawn for ease of maintenance, as well as installing a hot tub to make the most of the long summer evenings.
Internally, the highly stylish accommodation is arranged over two floors with the ground floor comprising of a substantial sunlounge with stone flooring with underfloor heating, an oak finished work surface providing a utility space as well as conveniently complimenting any outdoor entertaining. Beyond the sunlounge, a wide inner hall with slate flooring gives access to three double bedrooms, including the master bedroom with en-suite shower room, and the family bathroom featuring a gorgeous roll top, claw footed bath; each of which feature under floor heating. All the accommodation to the ground floor is awash with a myriad of period features throughout including exposed timbers, stone lintels and plinths, panelling and lovely reclaimed wooden doors with antique Suffolk latches.
From the hallway, an oak returning stair rises to the breath taking, open plan first floor living space with vaulted ceiling and a delightful triple aspect giving not only a phenomenal amount of natural light but also some exceptional views across the surrounding valleys and woodland via two Juliet balconies to both the front and rear. The living space also features a large log burner, perfect for those cosy winter evenings. Above the living space there is an enclosed mezzanine which has previously been used as a fourth bedroom but currently works perfectly as a home office. The kitchen and dining areas are equally as stunning and feature a range of extremely well appointed units in a somewhat rustic style that perfectly compliment the buildings heritage including a modern oil fired Aga along with further electric oven and 5-ring gas hob. The kitchen area also has the charming feature of the original grain hatch in the floor which has been cased in display glass and accentuated by halogen lights. A lovely 'nod' to the buildings heritage.
All in all, Lodge Court Barn offers superb potential, thanks to its location, quality and style, for a wonderful main residence, a home away from home or a holiday let investment and is offered for sale with no onward chain.
