General Comments & Location - The location of The Stables is very special indeed being only half a mile from the centre of Perranwell Station and within walking distance of the railway station with regular links to Truro and Falmouth. The house occupies a very large plot with mature gardens extending to approximately one and a half acres with adjoining paddock of an acre or thereabouts. The gardens are very well established with fantastic mature shrubs and plants together with a productive grape vine which can produce grapes for over a hundred bottles of wine! The house enjoys a sunny aspect with views over its gardens with countryside beyond and is located along Tarrandean Lane which is an unmade lane leading from Perranwell Station towards Devoran. The Bissoe cycle trail is close by and this is popular with cyclists and horse riders and is a cycle route following the mineral trail from Devoran to Portreath. In the first half of the 19th Century Devoran was a busy port shipping iron ore which was transported to the village from the inland mining areas via the Redruth and Chacewater four gauge railway which ran along the Bissoe trail.

Perranwell Station has a post office, shop, church, public house, primary school as well as a modern village hall with its associated range of social activities. The city of Truro is the main commercial and administrative centre of the county and is renowned for its excellent shopping centre including a flagship Marks and Spencer store as well as many smaller independent shops. There is an excellent range of private and state schools, the Hall for Cornwall offers a varied programme of entertainment throughout the year as does the historic Cathedral. The area is well placed for access to the creeks of the Fal Estuary and Mylor yacht harbour with its deep water moorings is just a few minutes drive away. The historic port of Falmouth is approximately 5 miles away.

The House - The house is extremely understated from the front and is so much larger internally than one would expect when approaching for the first time. The finish is to a very high standard with light and spacious rooms many of which enjoy wonderful far reaching rural views. The property sits on the site where the stables for neighbouring Trendain House were located and these were knocked down to make way for the new dwelling in the late 80's. The current owners purchased the property in 2009 and have transformed the house and created the wonderful gardens. The dwelling has been substantially extended at the rear creating a fabulous open-plan kitchen/breakfast room ideal for family living with high ceilings and lots of windows enjoying fabulous views over the gardens and countryside beyond. The bespoke kitchen was designed by Susie Hammond who is based in Falmouth with hand crafted cabinet style kitchen units with granite worktops, many integral appliances and natural slate floors with underfloor heating. There are four double bedrooms, the sizeable master has an adjoining luxurious en-suite shower room and bespoke built-in wardrobes, the guest bedroom also has an en-suite shower room. The accommodation is extremely versatile with two bedrooms on each floor and it would be very easy to create a separate annexe if required. In addition to the magnificent family kitchen there is a separate dining room (currently used as a study), large sitting room with wood burning stove, snug, utility, cloakroom, spacious entrance hall, bathroom and four double bedrooms. The internal flooring on the ground floor is a mixture of engineered oak, natural slate in the kitchen/breakfast room and dining room with underfloor heating, carpet in the bedrooms and the bathrooms are tiled with underfloor heating. The Stables benefits from mains gas fired central heating.

The gardens and grounds are a sheer delight being a feature of the property and extend to a little under an acre. They have been heavily planted with many fabulous shrubs and plants too many to mention but including rhododendrons, camellias, hydrangeas, agapanthas and even a productive grape vine. There are several useful outbuildings as well as a detached double garage, large greenhouse and summerhouse. The adjoining field extends to just over one acre with gently sloping paddock, further selection of trees and pleasant views over the surrounding countryside.
