Bridge Stream Barn has been lovingly restored by the present owners over the past 12 years. The barn itself dates back to around 1680 and is constructed of stone elevations; unusually for a barn the property is L-shaped. The other unusual part is the spectacular two-storey extension, completely hidden as you approach the barn, which provides a contemporary counterpoint to the original structure.

Accommodation offers an open plan kitchen/dining/living space, four bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms – the master bedroom in particular is remarkable with its vaulted ceiling and French doors opening out to a large covered balcony which has stunning sunset views.

Outside the gardens and grounds come to over four acres and have been left in a very natural state – there are many wildflowers and a large lake which is home to lilies, wild trout, newts, frogs, toads and lots of other visiting wildlife. The lake is fed by a pretty stream which gurgles through a small woodland bordering the land.

Bridge Stream Barn is situated directly to the south of the village of St Wenn in north Cornwall seven miles from Wadebridge and 10 miles from Padstow.

The guide price is £795,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01872 243 200 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
