Situated just 1 mile from the historic market town of St. Columb Major (Synt Colom Veur) and within easy access of the A39 ‘Atlantic Highway'. Close to spectacular stretches of the North Cornwall Coast, in particular the beaches at Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth and Bedruthan Steps, and within easy commuting distance of the towns of Newquay, Padstow and Wadebridge, renowned for their luxury hotels, restaurants and shops.
Lanhainsworth House has considerable charm and appeal, and although now requiring extensive renovation and improvement, will be of particular interest to those prospective purchasers looking for a readily available and delightful, period house which they can alter and improve to their own satisfaction and specification, subject to any appropriate planning permission, and when completed, providing a magnificent and comfortable family home.
The house has a largely unaltered interior and retains many original character features, and although perfectly liveable, it is in parts dated and requiring complete modernisation. However, the adjoining self-contained flat is in excellent order and would be ideal to live in whilst the house is being refurbished. We believe that the first floor flat is part of a later addition linking the main house to the former coach house and stables, which are unaltered since they were built. The property has a grand double wing front elevation and a substantial two storey section to the rear. The property requires a detailed interior viewing to fully appreciate all that it has to offer.
The house is an imposing period property, of splendid proportions with versatile accommodation and is without doubt a remarkable residence of a good age and importance. The extensive gardens and grounds include open areas of level lawn, flanked and bordered by a superb variety of well-established shrubs, trees and plants etc.
There is a traditional range of barns with potential for conversion, subject to appropriate planning permission. A pre-application enquiry has been made to the Council with regard to residential conversion.
The land is suitable for livestock or equestrian use, hobby farming, pets and poultry etc. The property extends in total area to just under 15 acres and includes an extremely attractive wooded area being, we believe, part of the original drive leading to Lanhainsworth House, with mature horse chestnut trees. All in all an increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a highly individual character home as a large family house.
