THE LOCATION Ponsanooth - meaning 'bridge at the stream', is a popular village with an active community and good everyday facilities including a primary school, church, pub, village store and post office. The location is convenient, about four miles from Falmouth and Redruth and nine miles from Truro with regular bus services to each.
The picturesque river Kennall runs nearby; in the 19th century this river worked a flour mill and a number of gunpowder mills, machinery at a foundry and a paper mill. 

THE PROPERTY Watermill House was one such mill, painstakingly restored in 1997 to create this very special detached village home. Tucked in the corner of Mill Yard, the property is substantial and attractive, with its quality granite elevations, slate roof and multipane windows.
The accommodation is reversed with three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one a luxurious, large en suite), downstairs. The wide turning staircase rises into a spectacular triple aspect reception room with double height, vaulted and beamed ceiling and spiral staircase up to a flexible, useful mezzanine level. A wide, entrance from the 'living' room leads into the fitted kitchen with its double Belfast sink and Rangemaster cooker. There is a utility and cloakroom upstairs as well as an office/gym at the rear of the garage.
From the reception room, a wide stable door leads out on to the terrace and south facing garden, where a leat runs through.
