27 ACRES OF COASTAL LAND

A unique opportunity - a valuable parcel of land directly fronting the south Cornish coast
in an Area designated as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Comprising almost eighteen acres of good grazing land and the remainder coastal slope and including a "secret" valley with
stream and an old track which originally extended down to the shoreline.

27 ACRES OF COASTAL LAND

This land was formerly part of Tregenna Farm which has been owned by the same family since the late 1800's and which is now being offered for sale separately following a sale of the homestead with a reduced acreage. It is a very desirable parcel of land approached from the hamlet of Tregenna and comprising a network of fields stretching down to the cliff edge where there are some of the best coastal vistas in the whole of the area.

The hamlet of Tregenna comprises a mere handful of mainly traditional dwellings standing within a sheltered hollow accessed by a county maintained road which is a cul-de-sac. It is one of those parts of the Roseland rarely discovered by the average passer-by and although very convenient for the villages of Portloe and Veryan there is little or no passing traffic.

The land extends to 27 acres of thereabouts and is largely comprised in four fields all of which are in grass plus an area of coastal slope and including a delightful "secret" valley where there is a stream and an old track that originally descended right down to the coves of Little and Great Perlea. This area is lightly wooded and will be of special appeal to those with an interest in conservation: there are banks of primroses and a variety of other flora and fauna.

The land is offered with vacant possession on completion.

Water is installed to a number of field troughs and is from the private borehole supply which is shared with the owner of Tregenna Farm. The pump house and borehole is located within this land (now being sold) but the electricity serving the pump is a supply via Tregenna Farmhouse and whilst this is still in operation (and can be until August 2017) this will be disconnected and the owner of this land will need to install an independent electricity supply. The new owners of Tregenna Farm have already installed a separate borehole in their own land which was a condition of sale of that part of the property in August 2016.

The south west coast path extends along the perimeter of the land but there are no public footpaths crossing through the fields.

The land is registered with the Rural Payments Agency and the Entitlements under the Basic Farm Payments Scheme will be transferred by the owner following completion but subject to eligibility of the applicants.

Viewing - Strictly by Appointment through the Agents Philip Martin, 9 Cathedral Lane, Truro, TR1 2QS. Telephone: 01872 242244 or 3 Quayside Arcade, St. Mawes, Truro TR2 5DT. Telephone 01326 270008.

Directions - Proceeding along the A3078 from Tregony towards St. Mawes take the left hand turning signposted to Veryan just after the Texaco petrol station at Bessy Beneath. Continue along this road and take the third left hand turn on a sharp right hand bend where it is sign posted to Portloe. On reaching the hamlet of Treviskey bear immediately left where it is signposted Port Holland and continue along this road for about half a mile. Watch out for the first public road on the right hand side (opposite a post box) where it is signposted Tregenna. Proceeding down this road Tregenna Farm is literally the first property on the right hand side. Immediately opposite the entrance to the farm a track leads to these fields and entered via a metal gate.
