We are delighted to offer buyers a truly unique opportunity to purchase not one but two beautifully renovated Grade II Listed homes hidden away at the higher end of Elmers Green Lane in a quiet little close behind beautifully landscaped walled gardens with private electric gated access that both perfectly blend numerous original features dating back to 1714 with a contemporary high end finish.

Stannanought Farm & Copper Beech Cottage are delightful stone built houses that both have their own fitted kitchens & bathrooms and offer five bedrooms in total. Perfect for the multi-generational & extended family these properties are not only completely self-contained but are independently registered as separate addresses meaning they could potentially be split and let or sold separately. Individually designed with amazing attention to detail they offer a flexible arrangement that is ideal for keeping the family together without sacrificing independence whilst alternatively a large family could live in the main house and use the cottage for guests or as an investment property.

Stannanought Farm is the main dwelling comprising four bedrooms spread over two glorious levels of accommodation as well as a basement / cellar for storage. Despite being nearly 300 years old this has been recently developed and improved to a very high standard throughout by our client into very much a home suited for the 21st century with modern luxuries built in. Viewing is essential to appreciate the wealth of accommodation and character on offer. The specification and attention to detail throughout the property is exceptional with notable highlights comprising: main sitting room with original fireplace & open fire, separate lounge and formal dining room with a double sided, wood burning fireplace that acts as the ultimate dual focal point between the two rooms, luxuriously appointed family bathroom plus a stunning handmade Mathew Marsden designer kitchen fitted with a range of bespoke cabinets and built in storage incorporating a large central island with seating acting as the hub of the home. Sandblasted exposed stone walls, plantation shutters, beamed ceilings, bespoke traditionally styled oak internal doors, antique style cast iron radiators as well as high quality flooring and lighting throughout enhances the ambiance and sense of character throughout.

The cottage provides versatile living space on the ground floor comprising a sitting room with feature fireplace, sun / games room, fitted kitchen and a generous double bedroom and separate bathroom upstairs.

Resting within south facing landscaped gardens that afford plenty of outdoor entertaining space with built in lighting, both properties share a large courtyard providing ample off road parking with access to a larger than average timber built double garage and each has their own private patio areas accessed from each property. The gardens backs directly onto an open greenbelt field that borders Beacon Country Park
