Full description


A beautiful 18th century house with contemporary extension set in approximately one acre of garden and including an artist's studio, summerhouse and charming single storey stone barn with planning consent for conversion to self contained one bedroom cottage.

General Remarks And Situation - Harvose is set in a beautiful rural position, on a warm South facing slope which stretches down to the upper reaches of the Fal Valley. It is situated on a country estate of several hundred acres, and is approached by a private road. The access is shared only by the estate, for occasional access to the farm buildings (which are not visible from the house, and used primarily for grain storage), and the single neighbouring property. The surrounding countryside is notably unspoiled and attractively wooded, and adjacent farmland is predominantly arable crop rotation.

Harvose enjoys idyllic peace and privacy but it is not isolated from amenities. The Cathedral city of Truro is about ten miles (twenty minutes driving time) whilst the main line railway station at St. Austell is about four miles away and can be reached in about twelve minutes. There are various stores, local hospital, doctors surgery and various supermarkets all within similar distances and there are also good local shops in nearby villages.

The House - Harvose is a magical family home: a beautiful 18th century farmhouse with a twenty-first century extension. It has lovely mellow stone elevations, is clad with wisteria and features cut stone window arches, granite quoins and cills and a charming cut granite pediment over the panelled front door. There are five bedrooms, two bathrooms, two formal reception rooms, a farmhouse kitchen with Aga, study/office, cloakroom and utility, together with a stunning first floor sitting room, added just a few years ago, which opens directly to the upper garden. There are a host of period features including an inglenook and traditional period fireplace, a granite paved floor in the dining room and two staircases.
