A centrally located yet secluded farmhouse requiring repair and updating, set within 10 acres of land together with a variety of outbuildings, and hidden amongst beautiful countryside.

A traditional small farmstead, that in recent years has become rundown and now is in need of modernisation and general refurbishment. The impressive looking double fronted house which, at some point in its life has been re-roofed with concrete tiles also features attractive granite cornerstones. The property will require the installation of new windows, remodelling and refitting of the bathroom and kitchen and a range of general building repairs.

The accommodation, which has already been extended to the rear currently comprises; a reception hall running from the front to the rear, to either side of which are two reception rooms, one including a stove. In addition to a large hallway at the rear, there is a small kitchen and a large bathroom. From one of the reception rooms an enclosed stairway leads up to the first floor where there are three bedrooms, all enjoying views to the front in a south/south-easterly direction. The window off the landing enjoys a wide-open aspect across farmland and woodland. For many, the inclusion of the 10 acres within which the house and outbuildings are set will be a particular attraction, as will be the quiet rural location on Allet Common, neighbouring Cornwall Wildlife Trust land, helping to make this a peaceful setting.

A driveway off the Council road leads down and straight into the yard. The land, Grade III on the Land Classification Map is made up of five paddocks and has become overgrown needing clearing. New fencing is shortly to be erected clearly identifying boundaries. The farmyard will also need clearing and repair/replacement of some of the buildings which include a former chicken house, an open fronted machinery shed, two storey barn and various other corrugated iron sheds.

The whole is truly a desirable and difficult to find opportunity to create a very special home.

EPC: G12 Council Tax: Band E
Services: Mains electricity, private water and private drainage are connected to the property.
Particulars & Plan: Whilst every care is taken in the preparation of these particulars, their accuracy is not guaranteed and they do not constitute any part of an offer or contract. Any intending purchaser/s must satisfy themselves by inspection or otherwise as to the correctness of these particulars.
Agent’s Note: This is an old overgrown property and there are many hidden hazards, so viewings are strictly by appointment with the selling agent.<br /><br />Trevellan House is tucked away in a ‘gem’ of a setting at the bottom of a private driveway, off a country lane on Allet Common, midway between the village of Shortlanesend and the A30. Just ¼ of a mile of the B3284 and less than a mile from the village shop/Post Office, primary school and family pub in Shortlanesend, Truro City is another 1 ½ miles along the road, so easily commutable by cycle car or bus on a daily basis. In addition to the main roads, a labyrinth of country back lanes means Cornwall’s main arterial route the A30 is barely 1 mile drive away, Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske is about 4 miles away, and a choice of sandy surfing beaches on the north coast at St Agnes and Perranporth are a short drive away.
