Enjoying an ENVIABLE PEACEFUL SETTING at Blagdonmoor Wharf, this NEWLY CONVERTED, HISTORIC STONE and SLATE barn can be found DOWN A PRIVATE LANE, within a relatively UNKNOWN SPOT, consisting of only 5 other properties. The property has been sympathetically restored and offers a wealth of charm and character throughout, as well as under floor heating to the ground floor. There are exposed timbers and large patio doors run along the whole of one side, taking full advantage of the outlook through the four stone built columns and across the stream to the paddock. The accommodation in brief compromises an entrance hallway, just under 37 ft long open plan kitchen/ dining/ living room, inner hallway, utility room, three double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the ground floor. On the first floor the landing gives access to the master bedroom with en suite shower room. Outside there is plenty of off road parking, a large garden ready for landscaping, small stream/ former canal and paddock. An opportunity to enjoy a peaceful, rural setting, yet being only two miles away from the sought after market town of Holsworthy and local amenities it has to offer.


SITUATION:

The property lies on the edge of a small rural hamlet set down a private lane just under two miles from the market town of Holsworthy which offers a variety of attractive shops set around the town square, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries, places of worship and Waitrose supermarket. The coastal resort of Bude is some 10 miles to the west, with its sandy beaches, cliff walks and access to the A39 Atlantic Highway. The hamlet is reached by a minor country road accessed off the main A388 road which links Holsworthy to the town of Torrington and therefore offers good road access for those wishing to explore this area of the Westcountry. To the east is the A30 which links the cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is access to the M5 motorway network, mainline railway station serving London Paddington and international airport. In all, the area is based broadly on agriculture and tourism, both of which provide excellent opportunities for the facilities that are offered at the property.

HISTORY OF BUDE HARBOUR/ BLAGDONMOOR WHARF:

After many years of planning and feasibility studies in 1819, the Bude Harbour & Canal Company was formed. Work commenced in July of that year, and 35.5 miles of canal were eventually completed in 1825. The main line ran from Bude to Blagdonmoor Wharf with a branch from Red Post to Druxton Wharf near Launceston, along with a "feeder arm" from Lower Tamar Lake which supplied the canal with water. Interestingly, its construction and operation was solely for the transporting of lime rich sand to improve the soil of the local farms. As may be anticipated with the event of the railway network and new chemical fertilisers, the canal fell into gradual decline. Today, intriguing remnants of the canal can be found along the old routes, and the barn at Blagdonmoor Wharf is a great example of one of the former canal buildings and its infrastructure.
