Cornish barn conversion with WW2 air raid shelter for sale

This is a very special property indeed. With its fabulous location and luxurious interiors, it’s an absolutely wonderful home with some truly unique – and surprise – features in abundance.

This former Cornish barn at Trevellas, near St Agnes, has been converted into a beautiful contemporary home with two double bedrooms. It comes with a detached, modern and cosy one-bedroom barn conversion annexe, as well as a former tractor shed now used as a studio and workshop, a polytunnel, ground-mounted solar panels, and an in-tact 50-person WW2 air raid shelter, all set in a generous paddock with plenty of parking and far-reaching countryside views in an exceptional setting just minutes from the North Cornwall coastline and beaches.

As a permanent home, or as a home from home, there is a great deal of potential for its new owners to explore – to generate an ongoing income by renting the annexe (or indeed live in the one-bedroom property and let the two-bedroom), to extend the main house, to convert the tractor shed into accommodation or perhaps stabling, and to make a real feature of the air raid shelter. There are so many possibilities! All subject to the relevant consents, of course.

The site has an interesting history as it was once home to RAF barracks in Nissen huts, signs of which can be seen in the form of concrete pads, two tumbledown ablution blocks, and of course the underground air raid shelter. It’s close to Perranporth Airfield, which during WW2 was an RAF Spitfire base.

The main barn is configured as a large open plan living/kitchen/dining space with an ensuite bedroom at either end. The annexe is just as special, fitted to the same superb standards. Both properties are near to south-facing with an abundance of glazing and huge sliding and bi-fold doors to the wonderfully calm outlook over the gravelled gardens and paddock.

The 4kw solar array makes a significant contribution to the energy requirements. There’s a wood-burning stove to heat the tractor shed, and there’s even a wetsuit hangout and outdoor shower – handy after a visit to the beach!
