PURCHASE your very own piece of The Shire from The Lord of the Rings with this unique hobbit house located in the grounds of a four-bed house, with offers over £600k welcomed.
Incredible images show the main residence from above with a long driveway and extensive gardens as well as the spacious interior including cosy bedrooms, light-filled living areas and a modern kitchen.
Other stunning shots show the straw bale-built and grassy-roofed property that is tucked away in the back garden as well as the warm and welcoming interior.
The four-bed detached house, Toddalong, is located in Tregaddock, St Mabyn, Cornwall and is currently listed for £600k by Cole Rayment and White.
The property does come with the Toddalong Roundhouse which is currently let out through Airbnb as a holiday home, with an estimated annual income of £20k.
“Situated just outside the popular North Cornish village of St Mabyn is this unique proposition to purchase a spacious four bedroom detached property set in good size surrounding gardens with a unique Roundhouse providing an excellent income within the top section of the gardens,” states the listing.
“As can be seen on the photographs the property enjoys a fantastic rural location approximately one mile from the village of St Mabyn which has its own school, church, community shop and public house. The nearest main town is Wadebridge with the beautiful beaches, bays and cliff walks of the North Cornish coastline just a short drive away.
“Toddalong itself was originally a detached bungalow now extended into a very spacious four bedroom residence with one first floor bedroom and the whole property enjoying excellent natural light with double glazed windows throughout including bi-fold doors onto the rear patio.
“There is a fully fitted modern kitchen and superb L-shaped open plan kitchen/living/dining room which simply must be viewed to be fully appreciated. Toddalong stands in its own good size grounds adjacent to open countryside and enjoys some splendid views.”
Toddalong Roundhouse is included with the property and currently has bookings for the next 12 months that need to be honoured.
“Toddalong Roundhouse is a unique Strawbale holiday home, built by the current owners and let through Airbnb,” continues the listing.
“It is let throughout the year for a minimum of two nights during term time and from Saturday to Saturday during the school holidays. It has been named by Cornwall Live as one of the quirkiest places to stay in Cornwall and is already well booked for the year ahead.
“It sleeps up to four people, with kitchen, bathroom, mezzanine floor, children’s snug, outdoor space, fire pit and beautiful views over Roughtor and Bodmin Moor. The yearly income averages £20,000.
“Currently there are bookings that need to be honoured for the next 12 months and obviously from thereafter dependent upon the purchasers wishes. The Roundhouse will be sold with the property, fully furnished and equipped as seen with a full inventory to be provided by the vendors.”
