THE LOCATION Set amongst rolling countryside and a mile from the pebble beach at Porthallow, where there is a very sociable pub frequented by locals and visitors alike. This property is not on or near a main road which means very little passing traffic but, some might find it a little remote. That said, the bustling village of St Keverne is just 2 1/2 miles away, the market town of Helston (with 3 main supermarkets) is 13 miles away and the busy port town of Falmouth just 23 miles away.  

THE PROPERTY With some parts believed to date back to a time when Henry the Eighth was on the throne, there is much character on offer at this Grade II listed property. Sloping floors, low ceilings, walk-in fireplaces and a beam over the wood burner that could possibly have come from a shipwreck a good few hundred years ago. Five generously sized bedrooms on the first floor plus three adaptable/versatile reception rooms and farmhouse kitchen on the ground floor.

What can only be described as a huge granite fireplace at the other. The fireplace measures 8'3'' x 4'1'' and is home to a large wood burner and historic beam over. The unusual shaped beam that sits atop two granite posts to frame the fireplace is most likely from a shipwreck in days gone by.

From the parking shallow steps lead through to the garden that wraps around the rear and side of the house and gives access to the farmhouse via the kitchen and also the Grooms Apartment.

A covered walkway leads to a beautiful Mediterranean style courtyard. This courtyard has a mature Acacia tree in the middle making a natural turning circle for cars. There is a five bar gate that gives vehicular access from the lane and leads to the rental properties.

Around the courtyard are 'The Cider House', The Farriers Den plus the Reading Room which was a farm building with pitched roof and now a quiet tranquil place to relax and read in peace. Next to the reading room is Hectors house - this is the former Bulls house and has a bull pen outside and again something could be made of this little house.

The gardens to the rear and side are mature designed to offer sunny areas for all day relaxation.  

GARAGE 19' 5" x 17' 2" (5.92m x 5.23m) Double doors, electric lighting and fuse boards.
