Cargibbitt Farm lies in an idyllic tucked away but not isolated location close to Bodmin Moor. There are outstanding views afforded from all parts of the property with the main house and garden being beautifully sheltered. Originally a barn, the building was converted and extended we understand in the 1970's with careful attention to detail ensuring that a wealth of character was preserved. Today, the home which is a superb example of a country residence has highly flexible accommodation of at least four bedrooms. One of the main aspects of the property is the detached modern leisure suite that was added some ten years ago and houses a large indoor swimming pool with changing space and showers. Further rooms include a kitchen and bedroom which can accommodate extended family when needed. For equestrian enthusiasts, there is an extensive range of facilities including a small indoor area, comprehensive stable block, feed stores and field shelter. The land comprises of some 22 acres and is divided into four main paddocks which are gently sloping and well fenced. The property is located in a peaceful rural situation but is close to village facilities in Pensilva and Upton Cross and easy access to the rugged terrain of Bodmin Moor. For those requiring access further afield within just 15 minutes is a main line railway station at Liskeard.
The main house is split level and comprises of highly flexible accommodation including a modern triple aspect kitchen/dining room which is well fitted and has a range of integrated appliances including a double oven, induction hob, extractor fan, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. There are a range of matching cream fronted units, solid oak work surfaces and glass display cabinets. The room has modern recessed down lighting and flagged floor. There is plenty of room for a dining table. An adjacent utility room houses white goods and provides further storage and work surfaces. The main lounge has an impressive granite fireplace with wood burning stove. The adjacent garden room offers escapism and a place to relax and has direct access to the beautiful garden. Completing the reception space is a spacious light and airy drawing room which is dual aspect and has a feature traditional supporting granite pillar and matching granite fireplace with a further wood burning stove and display plinths at either side. Also on the ground floor is a large home office which could be used as a fifth bedroom if so required. The property benefits from fibre broadband direct to the premises.
On the first floor are four bedrooms. The dual aspect master bedroom has a fully tiled en-suite shower room/WC with an electric shower. There is also a walk in wardrobe with a safe. The remaining bedrooms share use of the fully tiled bathroom/WC which has a shower over the 'P' shaped bath. The views from all sides are breath-taking. The property is warmed by oil fired central heating, is UPVC double glazed and neutrally decorated throughout.
In 2008 our clients received planning consent to demolish the pre-existing agricultural buildings in the yard and extend their residential curtilage in the form of a new building to house a large indoor swimming with additional facilities. This is a significant benefit of the home and is used on a regular basis. The building functions to accommodate family as there is a kitchen, living space, showers and WC. The swimming pool is heated with all of the necessary filtration equipment accessible in the plant room. The large patio and seating area stands in a splendid position.
The triple garage has double opening doors, power and light and is adjacent to the wood store. The American barn style stable block comprises of four large enclosed loose boxes, three of which have "Fieldguard" rubber matting. Two of the boxes have doors on either side. The block has power, water and light connected. The indoor arena could have a variety of uses. It has a sand and chipped rubber surface which is excellent for riding. There is a gated feed store, loose box and double bay tractor store within the large building. The feed store has both double and a jockey door providing easy access. At the side of the building, a level concreted area has been used for a muckheap but could accommodate a horse walker if desired. A large field shelter of 12 x 18 foot (3.66m x 5.49m) has recently been erected in the closest paddock.
The grounds surround the property in the main on the westerly side and the pasture is laid into four main natural enclosures and is fenced into smaller grazing paddocks. There is road access at the top and a 65'7" x 131'3" (20m x 40m) fenced area where there is a great vantage point for the best of the stunning far reaching views.
Cargibbitt Farm is accessed from an adopted road down a private drive which leads to the gravelled driveway with ample parking and turning space. The gardens have been professionally landscaped and are terraced, private and well enclosed with again a focus on the outstanding views. There are many lawned areas and natural flower beds, rockeries, feature steps and many specimen trees. Recently our clients have added a pond which attracts much wildlife. The shrubs, bushes and perennials offer a blaze of colour during the growing season. Many outside seating areas are inviting places to sit and enjoy an evening drink or meal when the warmer weather allows. For those green fingered gardeners there is plenty of space for a vegetable garden, a greenhouse is in situ and some apple and cherry trees bear fruit.
The following is a quotation from the home owner:
"It is hard to describe the joy that Cargibbitt Farm has brought to us. From the moment we first saw it, it has been an utter delight.
To have 5 star equine facilities, a dream kitchen, a pool, and the best party house EVER has brought both us, and our families some of the best times in our lives. Top speed broadband and an easy journey to London makes Cargibbitt Farm very practical, as well as a stunningly beautiful place to live."
