An historic estate with a beautiful Georgian farmhouse at its heart is being offered in north Cornwall. Rosewastis is an old Cornish name dating back to the 13th century, and it is believed that the current Grade II listed farmhouse was built in the early 19th century. The house has classic Georgian proportions and has been sympathetically restored, with period detail such as moulded cornicing, shuttered windows, slate and granite floors and a wonderfully elegant balustraded staircase.

On the ground floor there are four reception rooms, and a cavernous kitchen with a range of ancillary rooms and a fabulous wet room, and a useful cellar on the lower ground floor. On the first floor there are seven bedrooms including an enormous master bedroom.

The property itself is set in its own pretty gardens away from the outbuildings, and below the house there is a restored stone barn which would make a lovely studio or store. All in all the property comes with over 14 acres.

The other outbuildings which are included are concentrated around an attractive model courtyard of traditional stone buildings, all of which have been granted planning permission for holiday cottages. There is also a pair of semi-detached cottages currently let and backing onto the drive to the main house.

The guide price for the property is £2.5m. For further information please contact Savills on 01872 243 200.
