Mount Pleasant Farm, Carnkie, Redruth, Cornwall, TR16 6RX
Sold £391,000

Coming to the market for the first time in nearly half a century, this detached character farmhouse is situated on the outskirts of Carn Brea Village and is surrounded by the Cornish countryside.

The property dates back to the late 19th Century and is steeped in history, having been referenced in local art and literature while also being the childhood home of the famous mountaineer Norman Croucher.

The farmhouse offers well proportioned accommodation which now requires a comprehensive programme of improvement works and there are a variety of outbuildings in various states of disrepair. Interest is anticipated from those looking to create a wonderful family home in the heart of Cornwall whilst individuals may wish to consider the possibility to further enhance the farmhouse, via extension or potential re-development of some of the outbuildings, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
