Cornwall Living – Farmhouse Feature

An enchanting, rustic hideaway nestled in a secluded location, near the village of Paul in Penzance.  This impressive, detached granite farmhouse boasts a wealth of character and charm.

With five bedrooms of versatile accommodation (including one en suite), along with three further bathrooms, five reception rooms, a fantastic studio and summerhouse, this home is absolutely perfect for a growing family, also lending itself to the addition of an annexe, subject to planning permission.

Penaluna has been beautifully restored by the present owners. Inside, slate tile floors really help cement that ‘house in the country’ feel. And, keeping things cosy during the colder months, the living room has an impressive granite inglenook fireplace with beautiful slate hearth.

For many, the kitchen is the social hub of the home.  Thankfully, this property offers a light and airy fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room, with plenty of space for a dining table and display furniture.  A range of bespoke units provide plenty of storage and there’s even an in-built wine rack!

Outside, the beautiful wraparound gardens provide lots of privacy and are securely enclosed with a five-bar gated entrance. Mainly laid to lawn with granite feature rockeries, well-stocked flower beds, mature trees and shrubs to the borders, there’s space outside to please everybody, including a raised patio with ornamental pond and a further patio area with countryside views, ideal for entertaining.

Only a short drive away you’ll find the popular and picturesque villages of Newlyn and Mousehole. And, only a little further around the coast, you’ll certainly want to visit the gorgeous Porthcurno beach and the open-air Minack Theatre.

This already-fabulous family home has the potential to become something truly special, so if you’re looking to put your stamp on your own little piece of Cornwall, be sure to contact My Place in Cornwall to arrange a viewing.
