General Comments And Situation - Penwyn House must surely rank as one of the finest period houses within Grampound village. It is an attractive detached building with a classic symmetrical Georgian facade with central panelled door, traditional sliding sash windows and attractive Cornish stone elevations. Not surprisingly it is Grade II Listed. The house is located along Fore Street, which is the main thoroughfare through the village, on the corner to Creed Lane. The accommodation is extremely spacious, ideal for family living and extends to over 3,000 sq ft over two floors. The house is thought to have been built in the early 1800's with the rear wing added at a later date probably towards the end of the 19th Century. There is a very private rear garden which enjoys a sunny aspect, parking and a very attractive detached two storey former coach house which has huge potential for a variety of uses and currently has a ground floor workshop which could easily become a garage and a first floor room which has been dry lined, therefore ideal for a home office or alternatively converted into a separate holiday cottage or annexe subject to gaining necessary consent. The house has very versatile accommodation including two staircases and includes 5/6 bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom has an en-suite and there is a large family bathroom with free standing roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. The sixth bedroom has level access into the rear garden. The ground floor includes a wide entrance hall, two large reception rooms at the front, study, utility, cloakroom, spacious dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. All of the rooms are of a good proportion with high ceilings and many wonderful period features remain including window shutters, slate flagged floors in the dining room, feature fireplaces in both reception rooms and a lovely turning staircase. The house could easily be reconfigured to provide a separate annexe and as there are two staircases this would be very simple to arrange. The enclosed garden enjoys privacy and there is off street parking directly accessed from Creed Lane via double solid gates. Penwyn House has gas central heating and will be sold with no onward chain.

Grampound is a thriving community part way between the Cathedral city of Truro and the market town of St. Austell. Everyday facilities include a village general store and post office, public house, primary school, doctors surgery, community village hall and a Chinese restaurant. A regular bus service connects both Truro and St. Austell where there is a wider range of facilities. Secondary schools in the area include The Roseland at Tregony and Brannel at St Stephen. Main line railway stations can be found at Truro or St Austell.
