Full description

An impressive holiday cottage complex in a glorious rural setting amidst grounds of just over 1 acre. Superb 4 bedroom farmhouse with heated swimming pool. 1 bedroom residential cottage. Three quality holiday cottages. Outbuildings. Fabulous pastoral views. EPC Band F.

Situation - Higher Treyone stands in a glorious rural position commanding fabulous far-reaching pastoral views over the countryside of the Rame Peninsula.
 
The property is situated at the end of a no-through road approximately 2 miles from the picturesque and unspoilt South Cornish coastline, much of which is in the ownership of The National Trust. The nearest beach is at Downderry whilst for sailing enthusiasts The Quay Sailing Club at St. Germans affords access to the beautiful Lynher River which in turn opens to the Tamar River and Plymouth Sound.
 
St. Germans is approximately three miles distant and benefits from a range of local amenities including a main line railway station linking with Plymouth and London Paddington. St. Germans is also home to the historic Port Eliot Estate with its fascinating park, gardens and house. Further down on the Rame Peninsula is Polhawn Fort, a Napoleonic Fort that overlooks Whitsand Bay and is now home to weddings throughout the year, a ready source of guests for Higher Treyone.
 
The historic naval port of Plymouth is approximately 15 miles distant and offers extensive cultural, recreational and educational facilities including three theatres, Drake Circus Shopping Centre, sporting facilities and a university. The Barbican area is renowned for its art galleries, bars and eating places and the port has regular cross channel ferry services to Brittany and North Spain.

The Property - Purchased around 9 years ago, Higher Treyone has been lovingly developed and improved by the vendors to create a manageable holiday cottage complex that offers accommodation of the highest standard.
 
At the heart of the holding is the attractive broad-fronted farmhouse overlooking its gardens, swimming pool and countryside beyond. Retaining a wealth of traditional features the residence offers extremely comfortable family accommodation.
 
Opposite the farmhouse is Higher Treyone Farm Cottage which affords one bedroom accommodation and is fully residential, ideal for an extended family or, indeed, inclusion within the letting business.
 
The three holiday cottages have been thoughtfully and sensitively converted by the current owners to offer impressive accommodation that enjoys excellent levels of business and repeat booking.
 
Surrounding the properties are mature gardens together with useful outbuildings.

The Farmhouse - Thought to date back to the mid-19th century, the farmhouse faces approximately west and boasts a mixture of rendered and exposed stone elevations. Extending to some 2300 sqft in size, the accommodation retains a wealth of traditional features including exposed beams and slate flag floors. On the ground floor is a traditional oak kitchen with oil fired Heritage range, a spacious open-plan sitting room/dining room with fireplace, snug with wood-burning stove, sun room with fabulous vistas, reception hall, utility room and cloakroom. To the first floor is found the master bedroom suite complete with a beautifully appointed en-suite wet room and three further bedrooms (one en-suite) and family bathroom in a period style with free-standing slipper bath.

Higher Treyone Farm Cottage - Directly opposite the main farmhouse, Higher Treyone Farm Cottage offers comfortable accommodation with retained features. The property is entered to a conservatory which in turn opens to a side lobby and cloakroom and the open-plan living area. To the first floor there is a landing, bedroom and a shower room.

Holiday Cottages - The three holiday cottages have all been converted by the vendors during their ownership from a range of traditional outbuildings and, in common with the farmhouse, feature a range of handsome exposed stone elevations and rendered facades on natural slate roofs. Milkmaids Cottage and Millers Cottage are attached to one another whilst Meadows Cottage is attached to the farmhouse.

Milkmaids Cottage - Beautifully appointed throughout, perfectly blending traditional features with contemporary style, Milkmaids Cottage is arranged in a reverse level design with a spacious open-plan living area to the first floor and two double bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor. Extensive use has been made throughout of oak together with contemporary detailing such as sanitaryware.

Millers Cottage - Similar in style to Milkmaids Cottage, Millers Cottage is again of a reverse level style with the magnificent 41 long open-plan vaulted living area situated to the first floor, complete with high vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers, pointed stonework and wood-burning stove. On the ground floor are found two bedrooms (one-en suite) together with a contemporary bathroom.

Meadows Cottage - Again, beautifully presented throughout, Meadows Cottage affords flexible accommodation which can be self-contained on the ground floor. Approached through a reception hall, the accommodation includes two ground floor bedrooms (one en-suite) a family bathroom and an open-plan living area with full height windows and French doors opening on to a slate sun terrace and enjoying majestic views over the garden and countryside beyond. A staircase leads to the first floor where there is a superb master bedroom, again enjoying wonderful views and benefitting from a quality en-suite shower room.

Outbuildings, Gardens And Grounds - At the end of a no-through road, there are two separate driveways leading into Higher Treyone, one culminating between The Farmhouse and Higher Treyone Farm Cottage and the other outside of Milkmaids and Millers Cottages.
 
In addition there is parking for 3-4 vehicles off the no-through road adjacent to a substantial detached garage with wide sliding doors and useful first floor storage area.
 
Milkmaids and Millers Cottages have their own sitting out areas whilst Meadows Cottage opens to the main garden adjacent to the house. An external staircase at the end of Meadows Cottage leads to a first floor storage area, also housing hot water cylinders and other items that can be associated with the holiday cottage business.
 
Higher Treyone Farm Cottage has a lawned garden to the rear whilst, just below, is a productive vegetable garden. Sweeping around to the western side of the main residence there is a wide expanse of lawn together with a sun terrace and heated outside swimming pool, above which is a raised sun deck with pergola over. Opening on to the sun terrace is a pool changing room leading on to the plant room housing the boiler and filtration equipment associated with the swimming pool.
