The property Made of granite with thick walls means this former school is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The conversion has been professionally done and "works" its origins are obvious but the thought and the attention to care has resulted in a fabulous home. Quality is evident wherever one looks and with the high vaulted ceilings and many large windows the natural light floods in. The main room is over fifty foot long and would be perfect for socialising and the modern lifestyle. Even though we are in the middle of summer it's easy to imagine how cosy a winters evening would be with a roaring fire in the amazing granite fireplace and looking up at the Christmas tree (that could be as high as 18 feet tall!). The bedrooms are all large doubles and the master bedroom and bedroom two both have en-suite facilities. There is plenty of room to put up stud walls to make further bedrooms or possibly convert the large mezzanine office area to yet another bedroom if required. In all there are three shower rooms and a large family bathroom.
Outside the former playground is now a large and sunny private patio where one can enjoy the hot tub (included in the sale) and via a few granite steps there is access to the parking area with copious amounts of parking space and leading to the double garage which has a room above (subject to the usual planning permissions) this could be an annex for a relative or even holiday let accommodation?
We do strongly recommend internal viewing of this lovely conversion and we also have a ten-minute detailed walk-through video that we would be happy to send the link should you enquire.
The location Situated on a lane just off the main road through Ponsanooth (this is not evident once at the property due to its extremely thick walls).
We really like this Village.... Great pub, lovely shop with friendly staff, fantastic school, breath-taking walks and lots of children's play areas. This is a family friendly village with a great community. A school bus service takes a weekday journey to and from the schools at Falmouth and Penryn. Shopping at Falmouth and Truro is also close by and many beaches are a short drive away. Great travel links and close to a main arterial road, yet the Village itself is quiet and peaceful.
Ponsanooth - meaning 'bridge at the stream', is a popular village with an active community and good everyday facilities.The location is convenient, about five miles from Falmouth and Redruth and seven miles from Truro with regular bus services to each. The picturesque river Kennall runs nearby; in the 19th century this river worked a flour mill and a number of gunpowder mills, machinery at a foundry and a paper mill. Ponsanooth is very well positioned to get to all travel links, shops, hospital and importantly.... Beaches!
Accommodation in detail (all measurements are approximate) From Frog Hill is a sweeping drive that leads up to a level parking area and the detached oak framed double garage with studio above which is accessed via an external wooden staircase. Adjacent to the double garage is a small stone building divided into three areas of storage plus a log store. From the parking area steps lead up to the walled garden/terrace with hot tub and steps up to the main entrance of the house.
Sitting/kitchen/dining room 50' 3" x 20' 4" (15.32m x 6.2m) A Stunning room, open-plan with kitchen to the left and dining and sitting to the right. An 18 foot vaulted ceiling over the sitting/dining end makes this room cavernous yet strangely very homely. In the sitting room end there is a fabulous stone fireplace which is a great focal point, stripped pine floorboards, deep windowsills with quality double glazing fitted. Exposed white painted beams. Door to rear porch and bathroom.
