Once part of the local Penrose Estate, this character home has been partly modernised and updated but still offers scope for repair, refurbishment and remodelling. The ground floor consists of a generous reception hall, lounge, dining room and kitchen-breakfast room together with a shower room/WC.

The house is warmed by oil-fired heating. Outside there is a range of former farm buildings comprising a 63ft long single storey milking parlour, three bay Dutch barn and a detached garage/workshop, all of which may have potential, subject to planning. The house has its own private garden and stands in a total plot of approximately 4.7 acres which includes the former farmyard and a 3.6 acre paddock within which is an Atlas Sorrento Super static home in need of repair, with electricity, disconnected water and drainage to the main septic tank.

It should be noted that no formal planning permission exists for the unit which has been in situ for almost 20 years.<br /><br />Praze Farm is settled within beautiful, peaceful countryside deep in the heart of West Cornwall. Porthleven, a historic fishing port popular amongst artists and crafts people alike, is but a mile away. Here there is a range of day to day amenities which include a primary school, a host of harbour side shops, galleries, eateries, the Ship Inn and of course the famous granite harbour which itself is very often photographed with waves breaking over the clock tower. Beyond the village you have fabulous coastal walks over to Rinsey Head on one side or through the tranquil Penrose Estate to Loe Bar.

Helston, home to the famous Furry Dance is 2 miles away, just off the A394. Here there is a much larger array of shops, banking and commerce facilities together with the hospital, Helston Community College and three supermarkets. The A394 provides quick and easy access along the south coast and to the County town of Truro 19 miles to the north-east.
