A Grade II-listed lodge house on the Trelowarren Estate in Corwnwall has been launched on the market.

The house was one of the original entrance lodges to Trelowarren, which is owned by Sir Ferrers Vyvyan, and is built of mellow stone. In preparation for a proposed visit by Queen Victoria, the lodge and a driveway to carry her carriage to the quay was built. Sadly when the Royal yacht arrived in Falmouth, the weather was so bad that the Queen wasn’t able to get off and never saw the house.

As it stands, the lodge has a small hall, a sitting and dining room, and kitchen and upstairs two double bedrooms and a bathroom. Renewed planning permission for a distinctive two-storey rear extension is currently being acquired.  

In an idyllic setting, the house has a splendid 1/2 acre garden containing many fine trees and shrubs many of which are a little overgrown.
