A gorgeous south facing Georgian farmhouse of classic proportions, located on the stunning Lizard Peninsula within within 1 mile of Porthallow Cove. The property also benefits from three holiday lets within the adjacent courtyard of very attractive stone barns, providing useful income. There are further large stone undeveloped barns within the courtyard that currently provide storage and garaging, offering excellent potential for a multitude of uses. All set within delightful private grounds of circa 1.5 acres, which also enjoy lovely views to the coast.
This beautiful former farm is set in a wonderfully tucked away and peaceful position with no near neighbours, just a short walk from the coast and the pretty hamlet of Porthallow. The approach is via some of the most picturesque countryside on the entire Lizard Peninsula and the final mile or so creates a wonderful sense of seclusion and privacy as you approach the scenic driveway up to the property. The house sits in a more elevated position on the western side of the grounds and the barns are located on the eastern side, out of direct view of the house.
The principal residence is a traditional, double fronted, southerly facing house set out in typical Georgian fashion. An entrance porch opens into a welcoming hallway, flanked by the dining room and sitting room. The kitchen is located at the rear and has recently been beautifully extended with an adjoining garden room. The breakfast room seamlessly flows from the kitchen and combines to provide a fabulously sociable layout and a great space for entertaining. To the eastern side is a large extension currently utilised as a music room and studio, but we understand it had previously been set out as a self contained annexe.
The staircase leads from the entrance hall up to a large landing, ideal as an open study and where the three good-sized bedrooms, a smaller fourth bedroom/dressing room and the family bathroom are located. The house has been tastefully and very carefully updated throughout with all of the windows being replaced by skilled craftsmen, with particular attention to detail paid to retaining the original glass.
The horseshoe shaped courtyard of stone barns are centred around an attractive large central barn/garage, perfect for anyone with an interest in classic cars. Two cottages are positioned on the southerly side, Rainbow Cottage being a two storey and the second, Rainbow End, being just on the first floor, with a large storage area under. A third barn, Cove View, is positioned on the northerly side, enjoying delightful views across the neighbouring farmland towards the sea. In addition, there is further single storey barn offering an opportunity for conversion, to create more letting units or perhaps an alternative commercial use. The properties are set centrally within the delightful gardens and grounds, which extend to circa 1.5 acres.
The Lizard Peninsula is very much Cornwall’s forgotten Eden and its east coastline has some of the most dramatic scenery in Cornwall. The small fishing village of Porthallow is only a ten minute walk from Pengarrock Farm and is midpoint on the SW Coastal path - a perfect place to stop and relax as it features a delightful country pub conveniently located next to the beach. Other nearby villages are St Keverne, with shops, two pubs, restaurant and church, and Coverack with its working/recreation granite harbour, beach and restaurants. There are bus services in both St Keverne and Coverack.
With its unique flora & fauna, history & geology, The Lizard Peninsula also offers the Goonhilly Nature Reserve & Earth Station, various beaches and the Helford River to the explorer. Activities such as boating, in most of its forms, diving and golf are available for the enthusiast. There is also an abundance of fine food to enjoy throughout the area with local fish, especially crab & lobster, being regular features.
