Situation - Chyverton Castle is ideally situated in a favoured rural area between Truro and the north coast with its renowned surfing beaches and rugged coastline walks. There is good access to the A30(T).

Description - The residence is approached over a fine private driveway, which leads to gravelled car parking and turning area to the front of this most interesting and unique residence. Having formerly been part of the St Aubyn Estate, the house derives its history from originally being a castellated shooting folly of irregular octagonal shape, which has been substantially extended to create today quality country residence.
The interior accommodation is delightfully presented and includes some fascinating and most interesting rooms. Characteristics include appealing light flagstone flooring through much of the ground floor, light stone fireplaces, compatible windows and so forth.
On the ground floor is a conservatory, entrance hall, the fine irregular octagonal reception dining hall, inner hall, family room, well equipped kitchen with oil-fired Rayburn, extensive range of base and eye level units and island unit with polished granite work tops and opening to breakfast room, utility room and drawing room with wine cellar. On the first floor is a master en-suite bedroom, second bedroom with large en-suite, two further bedrooms, bathroom, octagonal study and a fifth bedroom - although this room is equipped to serve as an office or hobbies room if desired.
The accommodation layout is shown on the floor plan and the house extends to about 4,000 sq.ft.

Outside - Surrounding the house are formal grounds with areas of open lawn, mature flowering shrubs, an over ground Swimming Pool, a pair of old block Stables each about 15'6" by 9'4", an old timber Foaling Box about 19'4" x 11'6" and a sand and rubber mix Riding School about 40 x 20m with floodlights.
A belt of mature deciduous woodland, with a variety of indigenous trees, surrounds the grounds.
There are three pasture paddocks, one adjacent to the entrance drive and two further paddocks adjoin the wood land to the north. An attractive stream runs along the northern boundary and there is a public footpath which crosses the property. In total, Chyverton Castle extends to about 20 Acres.

Services - Mains water and electricity connected. Private drainage. Oil-fired central heating. Calor gas coal effect fires. TV and Telephone points.

Viewings - Strictly by prior appointment with Stags' Truro office on 01872 264488.

Directions - From Truro take the B3284 towards Perranporth and drive up out of the city. On reaching the village of Shortlanesend, just after The Old Plough, turn right into Ashley Road.

At the next crossroads, continue straight on and after about 300 yards the granite pillared entrance to Chyverton Castle will be seen on the right hand side.
