A rare opportunity to own this uniquely glorious piece of the Cornish idyll (home and business) in the historically prestigious Luxulyan Valley. A three bedroom primary residence, a two bedroom cottage and a one bedroom holiday cottage.

This land is an important part of the few remaining sections of the British Isles which are part of our rain forest. A tremendous place for a keen conservationist, horticulturalist, arborist, nature lover to purchase, protect and nurture this wonderful patch as custodian. The valley proudly reflects its prodigious position in industrial and geological history whilst evidently providing a healthy microclimate for the continuance of abundant and varied flora and fauna. A perfect spot in which to escape whilst continuing to add value.

This secluded, picturesque and well-maintained home is an original Cornish cottage and flour mill, of traditional granite and slate construction. The primary home comprises three reception rooms, kitchen, utility and boiler room, two WCs, three bedrooms, one family bathroom and one ensuite. Situated on a plot of approximately 3 acres, graced by three expansive lawns which provide elegant playing space and a sense of privacy, enveloped by a lush tapestry of native and specie trees, shrubs, monumental granite boulders and winding paths. The property encompasses 500 meters of riverbank and rugged rapid waterfalls, a dedicate bluebell woodland walk. This verdant expanse represents an estimable estate.

Much improved in recent years, this listing includes not only the main home, but also a further two successful holiday homes named Dippers and The Cider Press. Both Dippers and The Cider Press are thriving as successful holiday lets with significant repeat business, currently generating an annual income of approximately £53,000 gross, with potential for growth. This additional facet adds to the property's appeal, making it not only a captivating residence, but also a wise investment.

The main house is a welcoming, considered home, recently improved with double-glazed windows, solid oak internal doors, floors, skirtings etc. A characterful broad slate-floored front porch provides entry into the well-presented living room. This welcoming room has dual aspects and retains original massive oak beam and grinding granite stones integral to the rear wall. A warm ambiance suffuses the space, courtesy of a wood burner set within the expansive granite hearth, complemented by ample natural light streaming through patio doors leading to the rear terrace and adjacent log cabin studio.

The gardens are navigated via level pathways and drives allowing easy access to each of the three properties, these are lit in the evening, providing a substantial, prestigious feel as you make your way through the enthralling grounds. In essence, these properties provide a harmonious blend of natural beauty, functional design, and unique features, creating an enchanting and secure haven for residents and visitors alike. The contoured valley floor is home to the beautiful river which sustains an abundance of wildlife, natural beauty, captivating plants, waterfalls, and splendid tree ferns. To either side of the river, the grounds rise up to each of the three properties on the estate, the main house to one side and the holiday homes to the other, with separate drive access from the lane.

The Cider Press is accessible via the level and graveled driveway mentioned above, which leads to the parking area for the property. This charming one-bedroom granite cottage, equipped with a hot tub on the terrace takes an elevated position providing charming views of the orchard and extensive gardens, all framed by mature trees.

Continuing further along the graveled drive, the surroundings reveal the recently constructed two-bedroom holiday home, known as Dippers. This pleasing architectural renovation of ancient ruins is engineered from larch, steel, and granite; it integrates seamlessly into the hillside and provides a delightful and luxurious living environment for indoor and outdoor dining and relaxation. Both Dippers and The Cider Press are well presented, aspirational holiday homes. The main residence is a substantial comfortable, well fitted home. Each property has its own parking area, and at Rock Mill there is a double length stone garage, a sixth garden machinery garage, a powered hot tub terrace for star gazing, 2 large dining terraces and a separate log cabin art studio/lodge with a double bedroom, shower room and kitchen/living area.
