Sold at public auction for £165,000
Comprising approx. 11 acres of land with a useful range of outbuildings inc. A long stone and slate building, formerly 4 almshouses, polytunnel, generator shed, former poultry/livestock runs, large level hard standing providing ample parking and turning, plus one third of an acre of woodland in a separate parcel.
Attractive and convenient rural location just 1½ miles south west of the City of Truro.
Halonmoor Farm comprises a ring fenced block of land extending to 10.68 acres or thereabouts with a separate parcel of woodland extending to 0.37 acres situated to the north of the main block. The main block is accessed from the Council maintained minor road, over a tree lined stone track which leads under the railway bridge and the small block of woodland is accessed over an unmade track.
The land comprises a mixture of pasture land bordered by mature trees with approx. 1½ acres of woodland to the south with a track around. The land is overgrown but could easily be put back into condition by being topped and the hedges cut back etc. The land is currently a very attractive wildlife area but we understand has been cropped in the past.
From the land there are wide ranging views over the surrounding countryside and towards Truro. This is a most attractive site with mature trees including Oak, Sycamore, Ash, Silver Birch, Rowan, Field Maple, Hazel, Alders, Willows, Cherry, Holly etc. The lower section of land is wetter in winter due to various natural water issues/springs.

There is a large hard standing parking area to the front and to the rear is a Polytunnel: 15m x 4m. Beyond the parking area are a number of former poultry runs etc, which are currently overgrown.
