Description Tregenna House Farm is an exciting and extremely rare opportunity to acquire a substantial and extremely well presented, spacious, 3 bedroom farmhouse with exceptional opportunities to convert the existing barns to self contained properties. Planning permission has already been granted. Offered to the market for the very first time, Tregenna House Farm is a spacious 3 bedroom family home offering generous living accommodation spread across 3 reception rooms with option to divide the existing property creating a one bedroom, two story annexe, perfect for dependent relatives or family members with internal access on both floors if required.

1 There is also an unconverted second floor in the loft space with offers endless possibilities of additional bedroom space, attic storage or further living accommodation, subject to the necessary permissions.

2 The property is entered into a spacious glazed entrance porch which in turn leads to the inner hallway of the main property with staircase rising to the first floor. At ground floor level there are 3 reception rooms, a kitchen and separate utility room. The main reception room sits at the southern end of the property and features an impressive open fire place with inset wood burning stove together with a large window which floods the room with ample natural light. Set in behind this room is currently the dining / family room with feature Aga. Set in behind this room is the galley kitchen with a spacious range of cupboards, work surfaces and appliances. The third reception room sits at the opposite end of the property which offers flexible options as an additional reception room or ground floor bedroom, if required. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is the utility room.

First Floor At first floor level there are two very large bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Annexe Sitting adjacent to the main accommodation, and providing internal access, is a two storey annexe with the ground floor offering an open plan sitting / dining / kitchen area and at first floor, accessed via a spiral staircase, is a double bedroom with en suite facilities. There is a second floor accessed in behind the bathroom via a turning staircase which leads to a huge unconverted loft space which offers exciting opportunities to convert into living or bedroom accommodation.

Gardens & Grounds Externally the gardens and grounds are very much like the house, spacious and generous, which surround the property and are mainly laid to lawn. The rear garden in particular is extremely impressive and provides a wonderful area for alfresco dining or for children's play equipment. A long driveway provides access along the boundary of the property passing a generous driveway parking area at the front of the property next to an open barn. The driveway continues in behind the property where additional courtyard parking is provided and access to the annexe and main farmhouse can be found. There is also a rear access driveway which runs along the rear boundary and leads to a 5 bar gate which in turn leads to the gardens of the property.

3 Within the grounds of Tregenna House Farm are two unconverted detached barns which both have full planning permission to be converted into residential unrestricted dwellings, together with an existing double carport which has full planning permission to be converted into a triple garage/carport. Also within the grounds are two modern workshops/garages.

4 This opportunity is rarely seen in the Cornish property market and for any buyer seeking additional accommodation for family or friends or for those buyers wishing to earn an income via short hold or holiday letting, this is a perfect property for consideration. Taking into account the attractive nature of the existing property coupled with the generous and spacious accommodation together with the exciting opportunity to further progress and add value to this property it will no doubt attract a lot of interest from buyers both locally, nationally and internationally and we therefore recommend an early internal inspection to avoid disappointment.
