The property has spacious, well proportioned living accommodation which would make an ideal family home with many period features and really needs to be viewed internally to appreciate to the full. The property is set in approximately 10 acres of land divided into formal gardens, fields and woodland leading down to a stream. A particularly attractive feature is the detached pavilion/annex which could be used for additional accommodation (subject to any necessary planning permission) and takes full advantage of the views across the grounds and open countryside beyond. Polkinghorne Farmhouse is located in a small hamlet on the outskirts of Gulval and Penzance with access to open countryside and only short drive from the main town of Penzance. Due to the popularity of properties such as this we would highly recommend an early appointment.
