Constantine is a busy village with a well regarded primary school, a popular store/delicatessen with a nationally renowned range of fine wines and spirits, doctors’ surgery, a local shop and Post Office, pub, performing arts venue and church.

Description

Set within beautiful gardens and just a short distance from the peaceful Helford River, Treviades Barton is a charming Grade II* Listed home. The house has far reaching views to the south, taking in the rolling countryside of the Lizard and with glimpses of the Helford River. Originally a manor dating from the 16th century, Treviades Barton was remodelled in the late
18th century. It is understood that there has been a settlement at this location since the 14th century, which at the time was owned by the Trevyados family, then later the Trefusis family who held it until the early 20th century.

PROPERTY

The property is accessed through a beautiful wisteria hung internal courtyard, surrounded on three sides by the house and a high, gated wall to the fourth. The slate flagstone pathway leads to a wooden and slate entrance. The inner hallway has doors through to the kitchen and formal reception hall.

Off the study is a boot room/laundry with storage, a Belfast sink, wine store, door to the garden and a separate ‘gardener’s loo’.

The drawing room has south facing views through two large recessed sash windows, with window seats, over the walled garden and towards the Lizard Peninsula. The room is half panelled and has two fireplaces, one with a Jetmaster fire. French doors lead to a granite porch, giving access to the walled garden.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

The gardens at Treviades Barton wrap around the majority of the house and are very well maintained and much loved. To the south side of the house is a walled garden with a lawn, separated from the house by a cobbled terrace. A gateway leads to the eastern side of the house which features extensive and well established beds, with pathways leading between the beds and to a rose garden. Cornish stone walls separate different parts of the garden, with steps leading up to a lawned terrace, with a croquet lawn on the next level. A productive vegetable garden is located at the eastern end of the croquet lawn; the beds, fruit cages and wood/glass greenhouse produce a wide range of fruit and vegetables, including berries, asparagus, various pulses and fennel. To the north of the greenhouse is a copse and access to paddocks.

There is further land across the lane from the house, which offers views to the west and south towards the Helford River and the Lizard.

OUTBUILDINGS

A separate double garage and bothy are set across the road from the house and have potential for conversion to separate
residential accommodation (STPP). There are two sheds in the copse, one serving as a workshop and the other for storage.
