Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Tremayne is situated in a quiet private no-through lane on a small, exclusive headland on the Helford River, between Penarvon Cove and Helford Village itself, one of the most beautiful parts of Cornwall. This idyllic village has an active sailing club and the well-known Shipwrights Arms, whilst the nearby historic village of Manaccan with its Norman Church has a primary school, village stores, bistro and the New Inn public house. The market town of Helston is about 12 miles drive.

The Helford estuary is a haven for sailing enthusiasts and is renowned for its many wooded creeks, notably Frenchman's Creek, the setting for Daphne du Maurier's novel of the same name. During the summer months there is a passenger ferry to Helford Passage on the north bank of the river.


Tremayne is one of the finest houses in this exclusive and long sought after location, perfect as a main or secondary home. The house was commissioned for the previous owner, using traditional granite and slate yet incorporating many modern energy-saving features, including zoned heating and double glazing. The interior design incorporates much glass and hardwood and the open plan kitchen and reception areas provide very light and extremely comfortable modern living. Each bedroom has its own luxuriously appointed bathroom and built-in wardrobes, with two suites being approached by their own staircases. Most rooms have wonderful views over the landscaped gardens and across the Helford River.

Along the front of the house is a wide paved terrace with substantial granite balustrade. An entrance porch opens into a reception hall, leading to the superb open plan kitchen/dining room, the kitchen of which - along with much of the joinery throughout - is beautifully fitted to an exceptionally high standard by Richard Winfrey. The fabulous first floor sitting room has windows on three sides and views across the Helford River. Double French doors open onto a timber balcony with panoramic views across the Helford River to the hillside beyond.

The house is set in beautiful landscaped gardens which are designed for ease of maintenance, being lawned to the front with granite edges and borders. The perimeter is screened by tall escallonia hedges and shrub beds which are stocked with palms, hydrangeas and evergreen trees. A gravelled drive leads through the lawns up to the forecourt next to the large integral double garage, where there is ample hardstanding for several cars and/or boats. The rear garden is completely bounded by tall stone walls, within which is a wooden gate leading to a path outside the property. A further paved path leads to an enclosed kennel with mesh compound. There is outside lighting including concealed up-lighting which illuminates the 'architectural' shrubs and palms.



After entering Helford Village, cross the creek and pass the Post Office, continuing to the Shipwrights Arms. After passing the pub, turn half left into the middle of three small lanes and Tremayne is a short distance on the left hand side.
