This grand Georgian residence sits in a little under an acre in a splendid spot of pretty Tregeseal, looking back towards St Just across open fields. With a detached double garage, driveway parking for several vehicles, its own meadow and orchard as well as a small cottage, this property offers no end of idyllic options. The well-stocked and established gardens offer a variety of beautiful spaces in which to relax, soak up the serenity and enjoy life away from the crowds. There's even a glorious summerhouse to retreat to on balmy days.
Entering through the main entrance, you pass through the vestibule with stained glass door and surrounds to reach an impressive hallway with an imposing staircase. On the ground floor you have a formal dining room, sitting room, kitchen, utility, rear porch/boot room and useful cloakroom. Upstairs you will find three fantastic double bedrooms, with the master boasting an en-suite bathroom. Lastly you have the family bathroom enjoying great vistas across the meadow, orchard and beyond. All main rooms are blessed with high ceilings, tall, multi-pane sash windows and a plethora of original features. Beneath the main property is a useful cellar storage area with restricted head height.
Across the yard at the rear of the property is the detached cottage which is set over two floors. Entering from the graveled driveway, you are in the open plan living room/kitchen with high, vaulted ceiling and beams. The space has plenty of natural light and a toasty woodburner with a slate hearth. At the other end is the fitted kitchen, behind which stairs lead to the double bedroom with en-suite shower room. There is a stable door on the ground floor leading back to the front driveway area.
Tregeseal is a pretty and highly sought-after valley just on the outskirts of St Just in Penwith. While the only shop here is an independent gallery, you are within easy reach of the facilities at St Just without the bustle of living in a town. From Tregeseal, you can walk along the old foundry with its trickling stream leading you within 15 minutes to the Keidjack valley and its dramatic seascape and scenery. The area is rich in mining history and remains of the industry are dotted along the landscape which offers a fantastic escape from everyday life.
Just 8 miles from Penzance and 12.5 from world-famous St Ives, Tregeseal is a rural idyll offering community, amenity and wide open spaces to enjoy.
