The property is approximately ½ a mile to the south of Beacon, 1 mile from the busy town of Camborne with a mainline railway station with services to London Paddington and 2 miles from the main A30 trunk road providing easy access to the east and west of the County. Tehidy Country Park, popular with walkers, is about 4 miles distant and Stithians Lake and Watersports Centre is about 6 miles away.

Reens Farm offers a super opportunity to acquire a conveniently located 11 acre smallholding with part renovated barn which will provide spacious family accommodation, useful purpose built agricultural building and pasture land ideal for equestrian use, hobby farming, pets and hobbies etc.

The barn conversion has been started but not completed and the planning permission was granted on 26th April 2017 under application PA17/00552, a copy of which is available on Cornwall Council’s online planning portal or from the selling agents. There is a Contaminated Land Report and the vendors have undertaken a Phase 1, 2 and 3 of a remedial scheme for the land. As part of the Phase 3 works, clean soil has been imported in to allow the remediation to be carried out in the rear garden. There will be ample parking for several vehicles to the front and side of the barn.

Building Control has been signed off where necessary as part of the planning and a SAP EPC has been produced. Most the works required to complete the build involve final fix, kitchen installation, there is a plumbed in basin, toilet and bath with the hot water system up and running. Electric is all connected. Provisions are made for electric wall heaters but these are not installed.

There is a wood burning stove in situ. The barn is fully double glazed with wood frame surrounds and has underfloor and roof insulation. The walls are cavity walled and dry lined. The external appearance of the barn will be exposed stone with a natural slate roof.

The barn conversion to date comprises a well laid out residence with a light and airy feel, spacious family accommodation, and allows the purchasers to finish the build to their own satisfaction and specification.
