View Particulars
A very well presented detached 5 bedroom, 3 reception room farmhouse with land and gardens of just over 8 acres. To the rear of the house, a courtyard provides a number of highly versatile stone and block outbuildings currently used for storage, garaging, workshop and stabling but offering great potential for conversion into ancillary accommodation, annexe or holiday lets, subject to necessary planning consents. The land is divided into 3 paddocks, all 3 providing ideal grazing with additional gateway access onto the road ideal for equestrian and arable use.

THE ACCOMMODATION    The house was built circa 1890 and recently extended with the accommodation now comprising hallway, living room with wood burning stove, sun room, dining room, kitchen with oil fired Aga, utility room, ground floor shower room and rear porch. On the first floor, are 5 bedrooms and modern family bathroom.

LOCATION    The property is situated on the outskirts of the village of Townshend providing easy access to the towns of Helston, Hayle and Penzance. The neighbouring village of Leedstown is well served with a public house, primary school and village stores. The beautiful sandy beaches of Gwithian on the north coast and Praa Sands on the south coast are both within a fifteen minute drive. The City of Truro is approximately 20 miles distant and the town of Penzance offers a mainline link to London Paddington.
