Tenure: Freehold

SITUATION Tredinnick Farm is situated on the Lizard Peninsula in a fantastic location, surrounded by its own land and with commanding views over unspoilt farmland, a wooded valley and in the distance, to Falmouth Bay.
Nowadays, properties in natural and special locations like this one are very hard to find. One's nearest neighbour is about a third of a mile away and the thriving village of St Keverne just one mile, with it active community and good range of amenities including Primary School, village shop and post office, butcher, public house and bakery. There is also a health centre with dispensary and a residential home.
St Keverne Silver Band is famous and talented and the focus of several annual summer events such as the ox roast in early August. Clubs and societies include the WI, historical, gardening, bowling and pantomime to name a few.
Roskilly's Farm is about a mile from the village, providing gastronomic delights and family entertainment throughout the year.
Areas of surrounding countryside and coastline are spectacular and enchanting. The nearby Helford River, with its waterside pubs and tree lined creeks and tributaries, provides some of the loveliest day sailing waters imaginable.
The former market town of Helston is approximately twelve miles away and includes an extensive range of facilities including shops, schools, banks, pubs and restaurants, supermarkets and leisure facilities.
Further afield is Falmouth harbour town, approximately 18 miles and Truro cathedral city 21 miles. Newquay airport (approximately 28 miles) gives access and flies regularly to London, Exeter and Manchester. 

THE PROPERTY Tredinnick Farm is a characterful and thoroughly appealing farmhouse with attractive rendered and natural exposed serpentine stone elevations, granite quoins and lintels under a recent slate roof. Over the last few years the house has been sympathetically renovated and restored to high standards, creating a very special home with great flexibility and extensive range of quality and varied outbuildings suitable for so many uses.
The farmhouse provides spacious family accommodation with four bedrooms, two reception rooms plus a lovely sociable family kitchen/breakfast room with AGA, opening into a glorious dining conservatory with views through the valley to Falmouth Bay in the distance.
For those perhaps requiring more space, planning permission has been granted under application PA15/07938 to enlarge the house with an inspired extension.
All is practical and workmanlike too, with family bathroom upstairs, shower room downstairs, a utility and an excellent adjacent 26' x 25' workshop/store.
The first floor of the two storey barn has been converted to provide a one bedroom studio apartment (with plans passed to expand - also under planning application number PA15/07938). This together with the two bedroom static caravan, in its own lovely private setting provide scope for added flexibility and providing letting income if desired.
The land is mainly bounded by good Cornish hedging, and contained within seven conveniently shaped pasture fields. It is mainly level or sloping with some steeper slopes running down to a river. A well water supply feeds the field troughs making it suitable for livestock or equestrian use. There is an attractive recently planted orchard/wooded area.
The land surrounds the farm and is contained within a ring fence with the property in all extending to 23.72 acres or thereabouts.
