A unique, spacious and excellently presented 8 bedroom Victorian residence set in private grounds with generous accommodation throughout and the added feature of 3 self contained apartments offering good income potential.

Built in 1895 by John De Cressy Treffry, High Sheriff of Cornwall, Penarwyn House is a beautiful and impeccably presented Victorian residence set in private gardens and grounds. Set close to the beautiful coastline of St Austell Bay and Charlestown, the beaches of Carlyon, Duporth & Porthpean are just a few minutes drive and the harbour-side town of Fowey is only 6.5 miles distant.

The entrance driveway opens to reveal a broad courtyard and the imposing yet handsome house makes a lasting first impression. This only gets better as you enter into the broad hallway and through to the fabulous sitting room. The whole property is a showcase of interior design, cleverly displaying the size and flexibility of the accommodation at its best. Each room has its own individual styling, which combine as a whole to provide a truly exceptional and unique home.

The kitchen is very spacious, perfect for the keen chef; with a lovely dining room opposite that opens to the garden. There is a fabulous study and a garden room beyond making this perfect for anyone wanting to meet clients separately from the rest of the house. In addition there is also a cellar which could become an ideal wine cellar. The rooms are all very generous - Victorian proportions provide high ceilings making the whole experience very grand. Upstairs the bedrooms are just as impressive, each with a very luxurious feel. In addition to the main accommodation there is a separate staircase leading to three very beautiful apartments that the current owner offers as holiday lettings.

Penarwyn is set in its secluded grounds and is conveniently positioned for access to the beautiful St Austell Bay. This entire stretch of coastline is a haven as it has a wonderfully tucked away feeling, with an almost mediterranean feel due to its clear waters, sandy beaches and rugged tree-topped cliffs. The beaches offer safe swimming and water sports activities. Nearby Charlestown is a world heritage site that is renowned for its picturesque harbour that, as well as providing a safe haven for visiting old ships, is also the location for many television series and cinematic film projects. The nearby town of St Austell offers numerous shops, supermarkets and a leisure centre, plus a mainline railway station to London Paddington as does Par - which is even closer. The attractive coastal town of Fowey just 6.5 miles distant has an excellent range of shops, restaurants and bars and offers many sailing facilities.
