Historic country house near the water enjoying superb privacy, set centrally within grounds of 19 acres.

Location

Mylor has long been one of the most desirable and sought-after addresses in south Cornwall; winding its way along the south bank of this pretty creek from the village of Mylor Bridge to the church and yacht marina at Mylor Harbour. The village is a thriving community with a primary school, public house, newsagent, grocery store, butchers, creekside cricket field and boatyard.

Mylor Yacht Harbour is positioned at the entrance to Mylor Creek where it joins the extensive sailing waters of the Carrick Roads. The yachting and boating facilities at the harbour are some of the finest in Cornwall with marina berths, moorings, chandlery, boatyard and restaurants.

Description

Porloe Farm is one of the Falmouth area’s most special, unique and private homes. This Grade II* Listed Georgian farmhouse offers the seclusion of an impressive country home whilst being moments from the water and within a short drive of both Falmouth and Truro.

The property is approached via a long driveway with paddocks on either side and is surrounded by its own grounds of 19 acres, so is immensely private from both the road, footpaths and the water. There are no public footpaths or rights of way through the grounds.

The living accommodation in the main house is charming and quintessentially English, retaining original features throughout. The main body of the house comprises the kitchen/breakfast room with flag stone flooring and a 4-oven AGA. The impressive formal drawing room, defined by the ornate cornicing, dado rails and the large marble fireplace, is dual aspect with French doors leading out to the courtyard. The ‘secret’ wine cellar is accessed via a hatch in the drawing room. To the side the triple aspect dining room enjoys views over the grounds.

To the rear of the kitchen is a pantry / second kitchen. A short hallway leads through to the conservatory, used as a wonderful second sitting room, which enjoys an abundance of natural light and has a vaulted ceiling and and a gas log burner. There is also a useful boot room, utility and secondary pantry.

The downstairs guest bedroom, with adjoining study and bathroom, features French doors to the picturesque courtyard.

The original staircase with its fine joinery leads to the upstairs accommodation, where the master bedroom suite has an adjoining dressing room and bathroom also accessed from the landing. There is a further en suite bedroom and single bedroom.

GARDENS & GROUNDS

The formal gardens surround the house and are mainly laid to lawn with an array of beautiful flower beds and pathways; an idyllic setting for a summer’s family party.

The surrounding grounds extend to about 19 acres and include a number of paddocks, a sand school, a tennis court and woodland, enjoying views towards the water, particularly from the paddock above the tennis court. A track (suitable for a vehicle and trailer) leads down to a right of way over Church Road and to the water’s edge, which is a great place to launch a dinghy, tender or kayak.

OUTBUILDINGS

There are a number of outbuildings at Porloe Farm including a stone home office, two large barns as well as stables with five horse boxes, two tack rooms and a feed store.
