Detached 3 Bedroom Former Barn

Halgarrack Cottage, Barripper

Comfortable family home in quiet rural location

This detached former barn has been further upgraded by its current owners creating a charming well appointed 3 bedroom country residence. The property will appeal to a wide variety of buyers especially those wishing to enjoy a peaceful rural environment with lovely well maintained gardens.


Situated in an enviable off road location with only one near neighbour, this attractive home adjoins open farmland, approached off a byway with some lovely countryside views.

Whilst tucked away down a lane, the property is by no means isolated and is conveniently placed between Praze-an-Beeble, Barripper and Camborne. Less than five minutes in the car puts the village shop and Post Office, pub and school at Praze-an-Beeble within easy reach. The village itself is located between the well served towns of Camborne and Helston on the B3303. Camborne is just 3 miles distant with a wide and varied range of services and amenities on offer including senior school and college, supermarkets, health leisure and entertainment facilities together with a station on the Penzance to London Paddington main line. This historic town is itself on the main A30 trunk road, ideal for those travelling on a regular basis within and out of Cornwall.


Said to have been converted in the 1980’s from an agricultural barn, the property today represents a modern, well appointed home. The exterior elevations are of traditional stone providing character and interest, complimented by upvc double glazed windows and doors, resulting in a pleasing low maintenance exterior. Internally, the free flowing accommodation briefly comprises at ground floor level, an entrance lobby leading to good size kitchen, separate dining room and large lounge with feature fireplace. At first floor level there is a large landing off which is a re-fitted shower room and wc, and three good size bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower and wc.
