Grade II listed farmhouse set in beautiful grounds with a cottage and range of traditional outbuildings centred around a cobbled courtyard

Location

Carveth House is situated within a short distance of the historic
village of Tregony which has a long and illustrious past dating
back to the 12th century and was once an important trading
port. Today it is a busy community with shops, a pub, post office, churches, a primary and secondary school. The village is well positioned to explore the beautiful Roseland Peninsula with
stunning countryside leading to the popular village of St Mawes
renowned for its sailing and, of course, Olga Polizzi's Hotel
Tresanton.

The Roseland Peninsula is widely renowned for its unspoilt
coastline and sparsely populated countryside. Situated on
the east side of the River Fal it extends south from Tregony to
St Anthony's Head. Much of The Roseland is owned by the
National Trust and the neighbouring Tregothnan Estate which
has been home to the Boscawen family and the seat of the
Viscounts Falmouth since 1335. As testament to the area's mild
and subtropical climate, Tregothnan is host to England's first tea
plantation.

The Fal Estuary is one of the most picturesque on the south
coast, offering sheltered waters and safe mooring in one of the
largest natural harbours in the world. Within a short distance of
Carveth House there are the beautiful beaches of the Roseland
and notable gardens such as Trewithen and the Lost Gardens of
Heligan.

Nine miles away lies the cathedral city of Truro with its excellent
shops, entertainment, mainline railway station and wide choice
of private and state schooling. The new retail project between
Waitrose and Duchy of Cornwall is now under construction on
the eastern side of Truro.

Description

Carveth House is a handsome Grade II listed farmhouse set in its
own grounds of around one and a half acres and includes a range of attractive outbuildings along with a holiday cottage which provides additional accommodation and income.

The house is accessed through a traditional porch opening into a
hallway with exposed granite flooring. To the left there is a broad drawing room, the sitting room to the right is of equal size and both rooms have open fire places. To the side of the sitting room there is a spacious conservatory providing a great vantage point from which to admire the gardens. Linking through there is a very useful office for those wishing to work from home and a
convenient store.

The rear part of the house dates back to around 1790 and consists of a generously proportioned, traditional farmhouse kitchen with an AGA as a focal point. The room is finished with original flagstone slate flooring which leads through into the hallway. There is a generous utility area consisting of a boot room, a pantry, a laundry room and a convenient cloakroom.

The main staircase leads up to four spacious bedrooms. The
master bedroom, with en suite bathroom, and guest bedroom are set to the front, both benefiting from picturesque views over the garden and countryside. To the rear there are two further large double bedrooms as well as a family bathroom with an outlook over the pretty courtyard and fields beyond.

GROUNDS AND GARDENS

The property is set in its own level grounds of around one and a
half acres providing a good degree of privacy. To the front and side of the property, the garden is laid to lawn with attractive flower borders. This looks across to the tennis court with a small orchard set to one side. There is a further area set aside with a fruit cage and a sunken vegetable garden.

An enclosed courtyard to the rear of the property leads through
to three stone outbuildings. The first is split into two areas with
a dividing wall, part is used as a coal storage and the other as an
outside WC. The main barn directly opposite could be used as
a garage. The third large barn is on two levels and offers huge
potential to convert into a second holiday let subject to planning
permission. Beyond the courtyard there is a large gravelled
parking area which leads to the cottage which in recent years has been successfully holiday let.

THE COTTAGE

The detached cottage is beautifully finished with the entrance
porch leading into the kitchen. The sitting room is surprisingly
large and has French doors which lead out to a privately lawned
south facing garden. There are two en suite double bedrooms and a third single bedroom, as well as a utility room/WC.

Square Footage: 3,638 sq ft
Acreage: 1.63 Acres
