Description

HISTORY

There has been a settlement at Higher Polmenna since at least 1293, when the property was known as Penmere (Cornish 'Pen' and 'Meneth' meaning 'Hilltop'). Later becoming Higher Polmenna, the house became part of the Lanhydrock Estate before being bought by the Caerhays Estate in 1919. The current owners of the property have hugely extended and restored it to an extremely high standard, using reclaimed materials and traditional methods where possible to maintain the character and appearance of this historic home.

THE PROPERTY

Higher Polmenna has been substantially extended from the original farmhouse, with the current owners retaining original features while creating a bright, modern and charming family home.

On the ground floor, the reception hall opens on to a drawing room and sitting room, all with oak parquet flooring, beams and lime plastered walls. The drawing room, with slate flagstone flooring, features an impressive inglenook fireplace, bread oven and woodburner. The sitting room has an open fire, with doors off to a study and WC and one of two staircases to the first floor. A stunning orangery at the end of the house provides glorious countryside views to three aspects and doors leading out to the grounds.

From the dining room to the rear of the reception hall, a second hallway gives access to the tasteful and modern kitchen/breakfast room with an electric AGA, a utility room and cloakroom, and to the second staircase to the first floor.

The master suite occupies one end of the house and provides a spacious bedroom, large en suite bathroom and storage. There are five further bedrooms (four en-suite), one of which has a dressing room above the front door porch, as well as a family bathroom.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

The landscaped gardens surround the property, enclosed by traditional Cornish walls and maintained fencing. To the rear of the property is a patio and heated pool, while several areas of the garden are laid to lawn. The garden provides panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and farmland.

There are paddocks to the front and rear of the property which total approximately six acres.

OUTBUILDINGS

The walls of an original stone outbuilding surround the outdoor heated swimming pool, while an old piggery houses the pump room, water filtration room and a store. Further outbuildings provide stabling for three horses, a tack room and hay barn. A derelict outbuilding remains and offers enormous potential for a conversion to secondary accommodation, subject to planning permission.
