General Comments And Location -

Pengarth is a very attractive detached period house in a very convenient location on the western side of Grampound village and within easy reach of the north and south coasts, Truro and St. Austell. Located at the end of a long private drive the house is surrounded by countryside and enjoys a sunny south facing aspect and far reaching rural views. Thought to have been been built in the early 1900's, the house retains much charm and character and a wealth of period features including a fabulous entrance hallway with original tessellated tiled floor and turning staircase, deep window bays in both reception rooms, deep skirting boards and high ceilings with ornate cornicing. The house extends to approximately 2,500 sq ft with a conventional layout over two floors. All of the rooms are of a good proportion and there is a feeling of space throughout and the large windows afford plenty of natural light. There are five double bedrooms and the master has an en-suite bathroom. Interestingly there are two staircases as well as a sixth bedroom/former nursery and bathroom on the first floor. The impressive entrance hall with original tessellated tiled floor and wonderful turning staircase is a lovely introduction to the house with doors to both reception rooms which are of a good size and both have wood burning stoves. At the rear is a kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, study, utility room, walk-in pantry and the second staircase leading to first floor. The gardens and grounds surround the house and are extremely private, well stocked with many interesting shrubs and plants and a large part of the garden has been fenced and therefore it is very secure for children and pets. There is a generous sized paddock, orchard and further less formal areas which would be ideal for poultry and hobby farming. The outbuildings are extremely useful for many purposes providing garaging for at least four cars and would be ideal for those looking to run a business from home with further potential to create additional annexe accommodation subject to gaining the necessary planning consent. The cellar provides a further possibility for those looking to work from home. An internal viewing is absolutely essential.

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.
