Impeccably finished and wonderfully private 4 bedroom former farmhouse, set in circa 5 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds and with a range of excellent stone and timber outbuildings, the largest of which is a two storey stone barn that has planning permission to convert into ancillary accommodation, with no occupancy restrictions.
This immaculately finished, non Listed 4 bedroom former farmhouse has recently been meticulously renovated throughout and it now provides contemporary accommodation of the utmost quality. Set within circa 5 acres of exceptionally private gardens and grounds that include a pretty lake, orchard and woodland as well as a paddock and stables.
The access to the property is via a private driveway with delightful far reaching countryside views, that provide an idyllic approach and introduction to the property. On entering, the quality of the property is instantly visible. To your immediate left is the family room, sectioned off from the entrance hall by an impressive glazed wall. This spacious room features a vaulted ceiling, helping to create a bright and airy atmosphere and the underfloor heating and wood burner ensure comfort and a cosy atmosphere. There is, in addition, a Juliet balcony which provides views out over the tropical style gardens below.
To the right of the entrance hall is a fabulous 22’ x 13’ open plan dining room that in combination with the kitchen works very well for entertaining guests, whilst offering great charm with its exposed beams and an impressive inglenook fireplace taking centre stage. The kitchen is a real highlight of the property as it is fitted with a range of high quality modern units made by Rozen as well as granite worktops, a four oven electric Aga and a further separate conventional oven. To the rear of the kitchen is the magnificent garden room that provides a bright and airy space in which to relax. Its vaulted ceilings and glass construction provide a wonderful space to enjoy the morning sun and large double doors open out to the patio and surrounding gardens.
The sitting room enjoys a southerly aspect and generous proportions of 27’3 x 13’8. This excellent room again benefits from a wood burner, two shuttered sash windows and a doorway provides additional light and access out to the garden.
On the first floor, the quality of finish continues. An impressively sized main bedroom comes complete with high ceilings and it also offers ample space to create an en suite if desired. The guest bedroom benefits from an en suite with an elegant cast iron, claw footed freestanding bath. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom, also finished with a beautiful roll topped bath.
The grounds and gardens of Tredower are incredibly private, spread over circa 5 acres and split into well defined areas. To the immediate rear of the property is a terraced patio style area, perfect for BBQ’s or just soaking up the sun. It also overlooks the well planted gardens below, which provide a sub tropical paradise with Gunnera, Hydrangeas, Rhododendrons and a large Willow tree dominating the eye line. Further along is a considerable sized paddock which backs onto an attractive section of woodland. A stream stemming from this woodland trickles through the land and provides the water for the lake situated to the rear of the property. Further afield there is a good sized orchard with a healthy range of apple trees.
Tredower also benefits from a number of outbuildings. A triple carport can be found by the entrance to the driveway and a little further down there is a stone built garage - both have power and would be perfect for anybody looking to house a car collection. A timber stable is found on the edge of the orchard and this also has power and would make an ideal artist / work studio.
The most impressive of the outbuildings is the large L shaped stone barn. Previously used for agricultural purposes, it has the benefit of planning permission, dated from October 2018, to covert into a single large dwelling. The top floor has previously been used as accommodation but it would need work to make it habitable again. Set across from this barn are some additional garaging, which is currently used as a large store room and to house additional white goods.
Tredower is set in a very accessible area on the Lizard Peninsula - very much Cornwall’s forgotten Eden with some of the most dramatic coastlines found in the county. The stunning Helford river made famous by Daphne Du Maurier is accessible just 3 miles away at Helford Village. Nearby facilities are available at St Keverne, with shops, two pubs, restaurant and church, and Coverack with its working/recreation granite harbour, beach and restaurants. Close at hand is Helston which is served by three supermarkets and has a number of restaurants and bars.
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.
