The property is a charming farmhouse with a pretty façade offering cosy but spacious accommodation. It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large farmhouse kitchen and three large reception rooms besides a separate office/study.

The accommodation is informal in layout and retains many original period features with beamed ceilings, wood-burning stoves and fireplaces.

Across the courtyard from the main house is a detached two story holiday cottage with three bedrooms and a large open-plan living room/kitchen on the first floor opening out onto a deck and private lawned garden.

In addition to this there is also a useful range of outbuildings attached to the property including a stone barn, workshop, mower shed and a large hay barn. A small stable block is also located behind the main property.

The farmhouse has a slate terrace across the front with a walled upper garden beyond this. A path from here leads to a wonderfully secluded large lower garden which is well stocked and surrounded by trees and there is also a fruit and vegetable garden to the rear of the house.

The land totals around 28 acres and tapers from east to west comprising around four large fields and various parcels of mature woodland.

The property is situated around 20 miles from Truro and 1.5 miles from Cury, just over two miles from the beach at Plodhu Cove and the larger village of Mullion. There are nearby schools in Cury, Helston and Mulllion, where there are good amenities.

The guide price is £850,000. For further information telephone Savills on 01872 243 200 or visit
