The Property

Wayland House was built during the reign of William and Mary, with occupancy records dating back to 1690.

Lovely farmhouse property with great equestrian potential and pretty separate cottage for letting or dependant relative, set in approaching four acres in hidden Cornish valley.The property lays on the edge of the Caradon Hill World Heritage site. Formal gardens, pasture, paddocks and trout lake. Orchards, Bluebell Wood, Large Poly-tunnel and aviary. Pretty spring-fed brook. Superb views to the South East Cornwall coastline. Wonderful unpolluted fresh air straight off the Atlantic! In all, approx 3.5 acres (1.4 hectares).

The house is of classic Cornwall construction, with granite walls up to 2ft thick. Wayland House and the separate cottage Chyandour (House-by-the-water) offers a superb opportunity for those looking for a beautiful Cornish location and a country lifestyle, away from the ‘Madding Crowds’ of London and other big cities.
The house offers four bedrooms, 17ft lounge, dining room with wooding burning stove, 23ft kitchen and AGA stove, family room/study/sewing room and huge 30ft games room/4th bedroom, with hot-tub. Centrally-heated throughout.

The separate, spacious one-bedroom cottage – ‘ Chyandour’ -- has a large 20-ft lounge, bedroom, shower/toilet room, modern kitchen and is also centrally heated. The whole property lends itself a range of uses, from a family with a relative wanting their own accommodation with Chyandour. The latter cottage is currently used as holiday letting accommodation, and generates a gross income of approaching £4,000-£5,000 p.a.

The property enjoys a peaceful location in a rural hamlet, but without being isolated. Nearby is the village of Pensilva, with a doctor’s surgery, post office, shop, the Victoria Inn, and primary school.

In addition, there are doctors and veterinary surgeries, places of worship, comprehensive school and mainline railway station serving London, Paddington.
