Full description

A beautifully positioned 4 bedroom residence, overlooking the Lynher Estuary, surrounded by its own land, leading down to the foreshore and estuary on many sides, with range of buildings offering further potential.

Accessed via its own private driveway, being a well surfaced and appropriately cambered lane, the private approach to Grove brings you to the farmstead which occupies the heart of the Property. Grove’s house is a dominant 4 bedroom detached stone farmhouse, under a pitched slate roof, which has an air of gentry. The dominant view faces south across the Property’s land, overlooking the Lynher Estuary and the Rame Peninsula beyond.

The view is made easier by the extensive level lawn in front of the house, which drops off to a bank/ha-ha, which enables an unencumbered view, with a parkland feel, looking out over the Property.

Inside, the house provides light and spacious rooms, generally with high ceilings, equally offering the ability for modernisation and improvement, to produce a very special home.

Outside is ample space with gardens, ponds, orchards, and a number of traditional stone outbuildings, providing plenty of character, and a notable 2 storey detached stone barn which could offer good scope for future potential (subject to planning). Indeed this same barn has held planning permission historically for a residential conversion in the late 1990s.

The Property extends in all to approximately 141.32 acres, being a run of 93.45 acres of agricultural land suited to arable and pasture, with the remaining 47.87 acres forming interspersed woodland and saltings.

The main railway line from Penzance to London Paddington runs through the northernmost part of the Property, and offers a fantastic view of the viaduct which crosses the estuary.

The west and south of the Property adjoins a tidal section of the Lynher Estuary with access to the water enabling those with nautical passions scope for boating. A traditional Quay at the water’s edge allows craft to be launched at high tide.

Grove, nestled in the forgotten corner of Cornwall, whilst being in the most tranquil of locations, is only 3 miles from the A38 dual carriageway, and within half an hour’s drive one can not only reach four of the region’s principal towns, but you can be in Plymouth City Centre!

Sitting upon a spur which juts out into the Lynher Estuary, Grove looks South towards the Rame Peninsula. The nearby town of Saltash provides a good range of facilities and is the crossing point at the county border, over the Tamar Bridge, into Plymouth.

Saltash has a good range of shops and services, and situated on the sheltered tidal section of the River Tamar, offers good mooring and sailing opportunities, and wider recreation and golf can be enjoyed at the nearby St. Mellion International, and Saltash’s China Fleet Country Club.

The port city of Plymouth has a comprehensive range of all facilities and services, and offers an international ferry link and mainline rail station.
For a quieter pace of life, west of Grove is the village of St. Germans, which has a small sailing club, public house, primary school and mainline railway, centred around the historic Port Eliot Estate.

Coastal walking is within easy reach either upon the Cornwall or Devon side of the border, and heading inland to the Tamar Valley, one can reach numerous areas of sheltered walking and National Trust properties.

The area is well facilitated with both private and public primary and secondary schools.
