Tregrill is a hamlet of properties, including a farm and several residences a short distance from the village of Menheniot and a few miles from the town of Liskeard. Menheniot has all usual amenities of a village, including a shop, public house and primary school. Nearby Liskeard has a train station, national and niche retailers, primary and secondary education.

The location in South East Cornwall makes this an ideal base to explore both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor and the south coast.

The Properties

Tregrill is a substantial detached 4 storey period property dating back to 1824 (including the traditional barn outbuildings) and today provides a substantial 5,000 sqft, 7 bedroom family home, which could lend itself to alternative commercial use. The property has many character features indicative of the period and is presented in very good order and has been maintained to a high standard by our clients.

Attached to the principal residence is a 1 bedroom single storey annexe, which could also be used for other letting accommodation. Therefore, in summary, Tregrill is a very sizable well presented family home with huge scope.

Adjacent but not connected to the main property is a courtyard and barns, which comprise the 4 letting units that have been converted, throughout the period 1998 through to 2005 by the previous owner and which form approximately half of the overall barn provision, therefore allowing for further scope should a potential purchaser wish.

The 4 barn conversion holiday lets have a distinctive style, Provence with a French influence: Moderno with a classical minimalistic design: New England with a romantic American feel and: Deco with a resonance to highly stylised sharp lines. The 4 letting units are superbly presented and equipped and an internal inspection can only really fully do the level of quality of craftsmanship in the conversion to justice. The remaining barns have extant (ie live) permission to be converted.

Overall the property sits in circa 1.08 acres (copy available upon request) and comprises parking and garden areas for the guests, but also a private garden with heated outdoor swimming pool and patio terrace, alongside a front lawn and driveway for the owners, therefore giving this property a high degree of privacy.

In summary, Tregrill really is a wonderful home with current income and further potential to develop the leisure use. An internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the quality of both the home and the letting units.

The Business

We understand the holiday cottages have traded since 1998 on a self-catering basis and have been in our client's tenure since 2011, who are now selling due to impending retirement plans. The property is principally run by our clients with some assistance in the peak summer and we are advised the turnover is in the region of circa £62,000 per annum.

As previously noted the property does offer significant scope for numerous additional letting units, mainly the Annexe, conversion of The Studio and of course the remaining barns.
