An elegant and beautifully presented seven bedroomed, neo-classical country home nestled within about 28 acres.


The sale of Trenowth House presents a rare opportunity to acquire an exquisite piece of 20th century history. This distinguished beautiful property offers a unique blend of period features and modern amenities, set within picturesque grounds. The manor house and its ornamental gardens were conceived in 1929 by Sir Robert Harvey, the High Sheriff of Cornwall, as a gift for his youngest son on his marriage. The house has been subsequently updated to bring it to its current form.


Romantic Trenowth House exudes timeless glamour and charm, originating in the early 20th century and is a stunning country house. The house is approached by a long, tree lined drive, passing through open woodland and past the tennis court and pavilion, before revealing the view of the fine western façade with its ‘Bell door’ and the wooded setting beyond. The drive gently descends to the house and the front door before continuing to a rear courtyard enclosed by the ancillary buildings. The main section of the house is rectangular-shaped in plan with a projecting ‘L- shaped’ east wing, set back from the southern elevation. The house is two and a half storeys high with the second floor filling the roof space, adding dormer windows to soften the slate roof line. The building is of Georgian proportions, rendered and softened by nine bays of pretty sash windows with louvered shutters. The elegant property’s stone porticoed door opens into a lobby before revealing an impressive, two storey height, galleried reception hall that flows into the main reception rooms along the southern elevation. The finishes and details are exquisite throughout; soft colour palettes inspired by the natural setting creating a warm, contemporary and welcoming ambience. The ground floor comprises multiple reception rooms including the panelled drawing room at its heart, a striking formal dining room with a dual aspect, a cosy library/media room and elegant study. These rooms offer the perfect combination for entertaining guests or just enjoying quiet moments.
The spacious kitchen/breakfast/family room centres round a marble island unit and is fitted with high end appliances from Gaggenau, Wolf and Miele, including two large fridges, two freezers, two dishwashers plus warming drawers, steamer, two ovens and a drinks fridge. There is a large gas hob and a 4 oven Aga in navy blue and a walk-in pantry. Between the kitchen and dining room is a butler’s pantry with wine cooler, storage cupboards and washing up area.

The main staircase from the reception hall leads to a galleried landing with four generous bedrooms, 3 ensuite and 1 with private shower room and one with adjoining games room. The principal suite boasts a sitting area and separate dressing room, providing a private, peaceful retreat for the hosts. The second floor is surprisingly spacious, with a bedroom suite including a sitting/dressing room and ensuite bathroom. Two further bedrooms share a large shower room.


The property is set within an idyllic landscape, including formal terraces, a cloistered open stone entertainment barn, three geometrically shaped ponds, two further lawn terraces, meadows, tennis court & pavilion and ancient semi-natural woodland, mixed with conifers, part of which is designated SSSI (site of special scientific interest). There is a children’s treehouse and a carpet of bluebells in the spring. The eastern courtyard is surrounded by outbuildings for garden storage, logs, a three car garage, store rooms, boot and boiler room. The grounds total in all about 28 acres, of which about 22 acres is woodland.


Trenowth House is situated in the small hamlet of Trenowth about two miles north of the historic village of Grampound.
The house, ancillary buildings, formal garden terraces and enclosing wooded pasture occupy the upland slopes of the ancient Trenowth woodlands, overlooking the scenic valley of Grampound to the south. Trenowth is entrally situated, with easy access to both the north and south coasts, giving varied interest of coastal walks, beaches and wonderful sailing waters. The historic city of Truro offers an interesting array of shops, live performances at The Hall for Cornwall, with excellent schools and the county’s main hospital. Both Truro and St. Austell have mainline stations with direct services to London and the rest of the UK, and Newquay Airport has daily national and international flights.
