Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A grade II listed former manor house with an attached annexe, steeped in history and offering spacious versatile and characterful accommodation with separate lake and further area of garden set close to the beautiful Cornish coastline.

Brea Farmhouse is steeped in history. The site is mentioned in the Domesday Book, which confirms its use for many years prior to William the Conqueror’s invasion. Recorded as one of only six manor houses that were in Penwith at the time of the Civil War, Brea is thought to be the oldest of the manors still standing. The current house was built by Charles Ellis and completed in 1634. The Ellis family were Quakers and staunch Royalists and it is said that Charles Ellis provided sanctuary to the 16 year old Charles Stuart during his escape to France via the Isles of Scilly. The property has huge charm and retains many original features. The porch way leads into the spacious dining hall which features a large granite inglenook fireplace and overlooks the garden. The sitting room also boasts a further huge granite inglenook complete with an inset wood burning stove and fine beamed ceiling. Throughout the sitting room and the dining hall there is beautiful limestone flagstone flooring. The kitchen is spacious and set out in a farmhouse style with a range of attractive base units, wall shelves and antique wall cupboards. The Redfyre AGA type cooker provides two large ovens and heating for the radiators and the two 200 litre water cylinders. A granite staircase rises to the landing area via a series of smaller landings which benefit from granite mullion windows. The master bedroom has lovely views out to the front garden and a ceiling with partially exposed beams. The second bedroom has the additional feature of a lovely granite fireplace. Bedroom four was originally used as a Quaker meeting room and there is a staircase providing additional access. The current vendors had intended to install an en-suite facility here. From the landing a further staircase rises to a family bathroom which is beautifully set out with quality sanitary ware. To the rear of the property is a lovely annexe which has been created by the current vendors and was originally a pottery. The accommodation consists of an open plan living room with a well equipped kitchen at one end and is part open to the first floor with a gallery over looking. There is an attractive well-appointed bathroom and on the first floor is a good sized bedroom which leads to the gallery which would be ideal as a study. The gardens are a particular feature of Brea Farmhouse with an entrance into a circular driveway with inset lawn. To the side of this area there are two private areas of garden both are extremely well planted with a very wide range of mature shrubs, trees and plants. To the rear of the property there is a further courtyard garden which is very peaceful.
