AN EXCEPTIONAL OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE TWO GRADE II LISTED HOUSES CONVERTED & EXTENSIVELY RESTORED, SET IN APPROXIMATELY 2 ACRES OF GROUNDS. These stunning properties offer 4 & 3 beds, plus former piggeries with permission for additional conversion, in a beautiful valley setting close to the Fowey Estuary.

Two impressive and delightful detached Grade II listed historic houses, which have been imaginatively converted from Model Farm buildings. Extensively and painstakingly restored and rebuilt with no expense spared, the owners have created two considerable and exceptional properties with outbuildings in approximately two acres of grounds.

Furthermore, the properties have generated income for the family, having been actively marketed as luxury holiday homes.
