This coastal farmhouse sits in three acres of land with “stunning” sea views - and even has a ‘secret’ room inside.

West Crannow, in St Gennys, is a traditional farmhouse which was modernised in the early 2000s, and is now a “rare coastal gem” with its own paddocks and orchard.

On the ground floor of the property, an entrance hall leads to a kitchen and breakfast room with a stone and brick fireplace, an original cloam oven and integrated appliances, an L-shaped sitting and dining room with a stone fireplace and slate hearth, and a sun room with views out over the country and to the sea.

Also on the ground floor is a study, a snug or bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a utility room, a cloakroom and a store room, which was originally a salting room.

Upstairs, the first floor is made up of a main bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate WC.

On the second floor, there is a fifth bedroom with a sloping ceiling - and this contains the ‘secret’ sixth bedroom, a converted walk-in wardrobe den called Captain Riley’s Cabin.

Outside, to the front of the house there is a gravel drive and a timber garden shed, while to the side and rear, a patio area adjoining the sun room leads to the split level lawned garden, from which there are “stunning” far-reaching views towards the sea.

There is a further garden area leading to a wooded area and a paddock, with stream frontage and a footbridge into an orchard.

As well as the gardens, there is a stable block with conversion potential.

The property is being sold by Kivells for a guide price of £895,000.

Daniel Stokes of Kivells commented: “A rare coastal gem! A sought-after opportunity to purchase a property and three acres within walking distance of the coastal footpath.

“The property has wide market appeal with excellent versatile living accommodation and further potential to extend to enhance the sea views from the rear of the property (subject to planning permission).”
