Full description

To be sold for the first time in 33 years, a broad and imposing, detached, individual house, occupying an attractive semi-rural setting in the hamlet of Brill, less than .5 of a mile from the well served and sought-after North Helford Area village of Constantine, providing charming 4-bedroomed accommodation, set in delightful surrounding gardens and grounds of approximately 2/5 of an acre with detached double garage and additional parking.

The Property - Understood to have been the site of a dwelling since the Doomsday period, 'Brill House' is a fine, detached, imposing, individual home which is now being offered for sale for the first time in thirty three years.

Set back from the roadside, the property stands within delightful, surrounding gardens and grounds of approximately two fifths of an acre, well enclosed by granite walling and mature hedging, and comprising sweeping lawns, mature shrubs, specimen trees and a large gravelled parking area with detached block-built double garage.

Enjoying a sunny south-easterly aspect, the accommodation retains much charm and character, with features including beamed and canopied ceilings, granite fireplace with glass-fronted log-burner, original clome ovens and leaded light windows, to the well proportioned accommodation, substantially extended by our clients approximately thirty years ago.

A traditional hardwood studded entrance door from the front elevation opens into a 'central' entrance hall, off which doors lead to a separate dining room with open fireplace, magnificent 27'7" double aspect living room, kitchen with walk-in pantry, and rear porch which, in turn, leads to a cloakroom/WC and, outside, to an attached utility room and large workshop.

Upstairs, the 'master' bedroom features a large dressing room which could readily be incorporated into the main bedroom if preferred, or used as a nursery, hobbies room or private en-suite bathroom etc. Two further bedrooms to the front elevation also enjoy the lovely outlook over the gardens and grounds, and a fourth bedroom is ideal for continued use as a study. The family bathroom is also located on the first floor and comprises a complementary three-piece suite.

The Location - 'Brill House' is situated in the small semi-rural hamlet of Brill, less than half a mile to the west of the very well served and highly regarded village of Constantine whose excellent day-to-day amenities include a county primary school, sports club, two convenience stores, hairdressers, public house, church, doctors surgery and active community hall - The Tolmen Centre. The beautiful sailing waters of the Helford River are readily accessed from nearby Ponjeravah Creek, Port Navas and Gweek, whose boatyard and laying-up facilities etc are less than two miles distant. Helston, Penryn and Falmouth are all within five to six miles and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's legal, administrative, educational and health centre, is less than fourteen miles distant.
