Property Focus – Stable Barn, Nr Wenford Bridge

Originally a handsome agricultural barn idyllically situated in the traditional rural landscape of the Camel Valley with stunning views of the surrounding countryside, Stable Barn has been sympathetically and meticulously converted by the present vendors to create a truly stylish well appointed family home that really must be viewed internally to fully appreciate the superb quality and imaginative design. The property is beautifully positioned in roughly 4 acres of gardens, grounds and open pasture, which gently slope away to the south and south west.

New Front Aspect

The most notable features of this impressive conversion, completed in July 2012, include ‘A’ frame ceiling beams, oil fired underfloor heating, natural slate tiled flooring, natural slate sills, engineered limed oak flooring in the living/dining room, a contemporary Contura wood burning stove on a Cornish stone hearth with granite lintel and solid pine doors throughout.

The Cooke and Lewis solid ash and oak kitchen with Franke sink unit has a real wow factor and other touches such as the screwless nickel plated switches and LED lighting throughout ensure every facet of this property has been thought of, right down to the smallest detail. The double glazed picture windows and doors are K glass argon filled for high energy efficiency with some of the windows floor to ceiling in length to maximize on light and making the most of the stunning far reaching rural views.

Right on the door step at Wenford Bridge is access to the Camel Trail, formerly the railway track and now a popular and almost level cycle route which runs between Padstow and Bodmin making it possible to cycle or walk from the property to Bodmin, Wadebridge or Padstow along this dedicated traffic free path.
