The property is situated on the edge of the village in a completely private position. Tideford lies in rolling Cornish countryside on the north side of the Port Eliot Estate, about five miles west of Saltash and the Tamar Bridge. The village includes a renowned traditional butchers, Montessori nursery school, public house of excellent repute, restaurant, childrens playground and a community centre. The A38, which passes through the village, provides excellent access to Plymouth and all parts of the region. There is a regular bus service through the village to Plymouth and neighbouring towns. The nearby villages of St Germans and Landrake, about two miles away, have primary schools, whilst St Germans also includes a sailing club and main line railway station with commuter service to Plymouth and beyond (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours). The town of Saltash has a Waitrose Store on its northern outskirts. St Mellion International Golf Resort, the South Cornish Coast at Whitsand Bay and the wide expanse of Bodmin Moor are all within a short drive.


This is a fine example of a Grade II Listed Georgian Farmhouse with earlier origins, in the same ownership for 40 years, and we understand has never before been on the open market. The property offers well proportioned accommodation, with many original and period features creating warmth and character. With a southerly aspect, all rooms have a wonderful outlook over the gardens and woodland to front and rear. The kitchen/breakfast room and dining room enjoy immediate access to a sunny yet sheltered courtyard and terrace perfect for alfresco dining.

Centred around a cobbled courtyard and gravelled driveway, there is a range of outbuildings which provide further accommodation in the form of a studio/guest suite, garaging and workshop space, described in more detail later. The private tarmac and gravelled entrance drive provides ample parking which leads into a plantation of maturing bluebell woodland providing a haven for wildlife. The gardens are a particular feature of the property being mature and lovingly enhanced by the vendor over many years by the strategic planting of a plethora of mature trees and shrubs.

Beyond the gardens a south facing pasture field will interest smallholders and equestrians.

The garden and land totals in all approximately 9 acres.
