The lifestyle that this terrific property affords its residents is truly unique. Located close to the nearby market town of Liskeard with a large range of shopping and other amenities expected from a thriving and busy market town including a mainline railway station with connections to London. The property is within easy commuting distance of both the county town of Truro and the maritime port of Plymouth.

Close to the many nearby beaches dotted around the dramatic coastline and beautiful rural landscapes of South East Cornwall. To the south are the characterful ports of Looe, Polperro and Fowey with their small fishing fleets. For sailing enthusiasts, Fowey has the Royal Fowey Yacht Club and a very popular annual Royal Regatta. The coastline of this peninsula is a true haven for the yachtsman and water-sports devotee, with moorings available in Looe Harbour, complimented by a temperate year-round climate and surfing off one of the many local sandy beaches. For those with equestrian needs horse riding is easily accessible via local bridleways and country lanes in the area.

Within really easy reach is the A38 link road giving easy access to the city of Plymouth, with its superb range of shopping facilities including the Drake Circus shopping centre. There are regular cross channel ferry services to northern France and Spain, as well as five deep water marinas.

Gardens And Grounds - The long private driveway sweeps to a large parking and turning area with a central lawn, there is garaging, a workshop and store, which are detached from the house, the grounds to the house are attractively landscaped, and remarkably level.

Behind the house there are further mature gardens and a poly-tunnel with various outbuildings, perfect for storage or improvement. The paddocks are level and are securely ring-fenced by either estate fencing or established hedgerow.

Description - Perfectly situated with spectacular views over the rolling green fields of South East Cornwall, this fabulous property enjoys tranquillity and serenity.

Today it offers well-appointed and very flexible accommodation, typical of the period, offering comfortable and practical accommodation for both entertaining and family life.

Built of stone under a slate roof this villa stands neatly in the middle of its own grounds that measure in excess of 5.25 Acres. It combines fine architectural features with the requirements of modern living. The principal reception rooms are roomy and comfortable and all benefit from high ceilings and views over its own pretty gardens. The accommodation is both imposing, capacious and well proportioned, the large picture windows ensure that the accommodation is bathed in natural light and boasts a wealth of character and charm throughout.

Accommodation - Almost hidden from view at the end of its own long driveway, this superb country house is in a splendid rural setting surrounded by its own land with magnificent views over the adjoining South East Cornish countryside, handsome elevations are part rendered stone under a slate roof. The house has spacious accommodation over two floors and includes three or four reception rooms, the present owners have meticulously improved this wonderful family home during their term of ownership.

A welcoming vestibule encourages you to cross the threshold, where you will find the sitting room with warming fireplace to your left, as you will come to expect of Little Trethew Farmhouse the accommodation is bathed in natural light by large picture windows which also allow views over your pretty grounds.
