Converted in 1995 from two stone barns dating back to 1851, Porteath Barn has been lovingly restored, with immense attention to detail. The present owners have preserved many original features, creating an
impressive yet comfortable home.
In order to maximise the views Porteath has a reverse level layout. Downstairs there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms, one of which is en-suite to the master bedroom and dressing room. All bedrooms have
French windows to the garden.
On the first floor (on a higher ground level) are the sitting room, dining hall and kitchen/family room with 4 oven Aga, and doors opening onto a secluded deck. The spacious sitting room stretches the full length of the
house with triple aspect views, a vaulted ceiling and French windows to the garden.
The surrounding area of North Cornwall is often regarded as the most popular coastal destination in the country. Unspoilt coastline can be found for miles with fantastic beaches and coastal walks. The immediate
surrounding to Porteath is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, part farm land and part National Trust. Whilst Porteath is well hidden in its own peaceful position the vibrant scene of North Cornwall is a stones throw away.
The nearby villages of Polzeath and Rock provide day to day shopping facilities. Rock offers an exceptional range of boating and water-sports facilities as well as the links course, St. Enodoc Golf Club. Across the
Camel Estuary is the picturesque fishing harbour of Padstow (accessible via a passenger ferry from Rock), whilst further up the river is the market town of Wadebridge, providing a much wider range of shopping,
schooling and recreational facilities.
