APPROXIMATELY NINE ACRES OF LAND, STABLES, FURTHER OUTBUILDING AND LODGE Located in an idyllic rural setting within the hamlet of Tregavethan on the outskirts of Truro city. Perfect for equine use with two gently sloping paddocks, stabling for six horses and a further range of useful outbuildings. Mobile Lodge on site (not to be used for residential purposes), hardstanding providing plenty of parking. Approximately 3,500 Christmas trees (planted about five years ago) and ready to harvest soon which will provide a useful income. Mains electricity and water are connected. Superb riding in the near vicinity and a rare opportunity. Viewing absolutely essential.

General Comments And Location - A wonderful opportunity to purchase a fine block of land within the sought after hamlet of Tregavethan which is just four miles west of Truro city centre. The land is split into two conveniently sized paddocks enclosed within natural hedge boundaries with access into both fields from a country lane. The land is mature pasture and therefore ideal for horses or hobby farming and in addition approximately 3,500 Christmas trees were planted about five years ago and these will be ready to harvest soon which will provide income. In addition to the two fields there is an excellent range of outbuildings providing plenty of storage for machinery, hay and straw and six good size stables. A mobile lodge is included in the sale and this has permission from Cornwall Council but please note it is to be used for "storage purposes or other activities ancillary to the use of the land for equine purposes and shall not in any way be used for residential purposes without the expressed written consent of the local planning authority". Mains water is connected to the stable, mobile lodge and field and a septic tank drainage system has been installed for the mobile home.

The rural community of Tregavethan comprises a mere handful of country properties sporadically positioned in a wooded valley lying north west of Truro and dominated by the river Kenwyn. It is a remarkably quiet and unspoilt area and yet superbly located for access through to the A39 Truro to Redruth road and also the B3284 connecting Truro with the main A30 trunk road. The city of Truro with its shops, amenities and historic Cathedral is just four miles away, north and south Cornish coast are virtually equal distance and the nearby A30 gives quick access to all of the county. There are lots of opportunities for horse riding.
