CHARACTER FARMHOUSE & BARNS IN A WONDERFUL GARDEN - Four bedroom family size house, two storey and single storey barn ranges, mature walled and enclosed gardens - 0.8 of an acre in total. A very rare opportunity in this special geographic location - same family ownership for fifty years.

General Remarks And Situation - The creekside villages of the Fal Estuary are understandably the most sought after residential areas along the south Cornish Riviera and Feock is particularly desirable owing to its convenience to both Truro and Falmouth. Lambrook is set within the old village nucleus (more correctly referred to as "La Feock") and whilst very central to its developed surroundings it enjoys absolute privacy with a large site protected by mature planting and old enveloping walls. From the house and garden there are glimpses of the Fal Estuary.

Lambrook has been a cherished family home for the last fifty years and whilst the whole fabric has been carefully maintained and nurtured there has been particular emphasis on the garden. To the rear of the house there is a charming courtyard flanked by the traditional barns whilst to the side there is a walled kitchen garden (including four heated greenhouses) in addition to large ornamental areas.

This type of property in this specific geographic location is a rarity to the open market and early viewing is strongly advised.

Feock lies approximately five miles south of Truro and is a thriving community centered around its ancient parish church. The area is very popular with sailing enthusiasts, Loe Beach provides easy access to launch boats from a public slipway and gives access to the sailing waters of the Fal Estuary (Carrick Roads). The Cathedral city of Truro provides an excellent shopping centre including many national multiples, a main line railway station connecting to London (Paddington) and a good selection of private and state schools. The Hall for Cornwall provides all year round entertainment and there are golf courses at nearby Killiow and Truro. The historic port of Falmouth is within ten miles with further shopping and leisure facilities.

The House - The house is an attractive period building, probably 18th century, but possibly with earlier origins. It is not listed. With four bedroom accommodation including good reception space the house affords comfortable family size accommodation with many character features and full oil fired central heating. There are two classically proportioned reception rooms at the front of the building and also a large conservatory which overlooks the garden and also takes in the views to the waters of the Fal Estuary. Whilst modernised and updated over the years it is likely that a new owner would refurbish some aspects.
