Trevease Farmhouse is a traditional detached double fronted property with many original character features in need of modernisation throughout. It is set in a rural location with grounds totalling just over 4 acres. This stone built property has three separate reception rooms, and a large kitchen /diner on the ground floor, an original turning staircase leads to five bedrooms all with far reaching countryside views and a generous bathroom. The property retains many original farmhouse features including a slate flagstone floor throughout the dining area and inner entrance hall, granite lintels above the fireplace and deep window sill seating. Attached to the side of the property is a sizeable two story building which offer tremendous potential to increase the internal area of the existing property or could be developed as a separate annex (subject to planning).
There are established gardens to the front and side which are mainly laid to lawn with mature planting and borders throughout. The gardens are enclosed on all sides by stone walling with granite steps leading to different levels. There is also a useful detached stone building. A granite sty leads to the land which abuts the property and is in the main level or gently sloping and comprises a pasture field with clearly defined boundaries and a separate gated entrance from the road. From the land there are open views across the surrounding countryside.
Anyone looking for a rural country home / small holding of generous proportions with land measuring approximately 3.9 acres which they can improve to meet their own specification and taste, should definitely view this property.

Large granite pillars gives pedestrian access into the inner rear court yard area which has wonderful granite stone built retaining walls and gravelled path leading to side garden.
There is a detached outbuilding that could have a multitude of uses. Internally there is what looks to be a large disused open fire place with a huge granite lintel which in turn matches perfectly with the granite flag stoned floor. The outbuilding currently houses an oil tank that at this moment in time services the Rayburn located in the kitchen.
The rear and side garden wraps around the property and is mostly laid to lawn and enclosed via Cornish Stone hedging. In keeping, granite steps lead to a raised lawned area which is bordered by mature trees & shrubs. Two further steps lead from the raised grass area to a quirky pedestrian foot bridge giving access to a former hay store which could potentially again prove to be a useful space either for additional accommodation, home office or hobby space.
There is a stone granite sty set within the Cornish hedging which gives access to the 4 acre field beyond which forms part of the sale. Continuing around the garden there is a small block built outhouse attached to the side of the main building which has a low level wc located within. A pedestrian foot path gives access to the enclosed front walled garden which again has planted boarders and is mostly laid to lawn. The enclosed front garden is flanked on either side by a stunning stone built slate capped wall and is sheltered to the front by a tall Lyundai hedge. Further to the above there is mature sycamore tree and a separate pedestrian gate on the opposite side giving access back around to the gravelled parking area.
To the rear courtyard there is a covered entrance porch leading to the main house and kitchen. To the opposite end of the covered porch there is a additional room with dual aspect windows with both side and rear aspect.
