An enchanting, rustic hideaway! Nestled away within a secluded location in Penzance, nearby the village of Paul, this impressive, traditional, Cornish granite five-bedroom detached farmhouse boasts a wealth of character and charm.
Offering substantial and versatile living accommodation, with five reception rooms, four bathrooms, a fantastic studio and summerhouse, this would make an ideal home for a growing family and lends itself to the creation of a self-contained annexe* without the need for further planning permission.
Formerly part of the Bolitho Estate and close to the harbourside villages of Newlyn, Mousehole and Lamorna Cove the property, with its unique layout and neutral decoration throughout, has been beautifully restored to its former glory by the present owners allowing plenty of natural light to keep it bright and spacious.
Approached via a private farm lane and situated on substantial size plot with a gravelled driveway providing plenty of parking and enveloped in cottage style wrap around gardens offering a high degree of privacy and delightful views of the surrounding countryside and beyond.
The stable door into the entrance hall with a glazed window to the side and slate floor tiles underfoot, the perfect place to kick off your wellies!
The hallway leads into the spacious yet cosy living room where an impressive granite inglenook fireplace with slate hearth takes centre stage.
Plenty of natural light floods this space from an internal glazed window into the kitchen and the two glazed windows, both with seating, where views of the front garden can be enjoyed.
Exposed granite quoins and beamed ceilings also feature together with a television point and two radiators. Open entrances flow into the dining room on the right and study/family room to the rear.
*To the left is an entrance to the ground floor accommodation which offers the potential for a self-contained annexe with the existing configuration.
The property is approached via a private farm lane, approximately half a mile along. Lovely cottage style wrap around gardens provide a high degree 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 outside space to please everyone!
There is a raised patio with a further patio area, ideal for alfresco dining with lovely views across surrounding countryside.
To the front of the property is gravelled parking with a turning point and a further lawned area with garden shed, access to the two outbuildings; a summerhouse and a studio.
The summerhouse has power connection and has been divided into two principal rooms and currently used as a bedroom and a living/dining room with dual aspect glazed windows.
There’s a kitchen area with butler sink and a tiled shower room with a close coupled WC, where there is also space and plumbing for a washing machine to complete!
A fantastic studio, originally built as a dance studio and suitable for a variety of purposes, offers large open plan space with power connection, space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher and a separate shower with WC facility.

Candice’s Property Notes
What a lovely spacious farmhouse cottage, set in an idyllic setting offering many original character features and complete privacy with splendid views of the surrounding countryside and yet on the doorstep of local amenities and attractions.
The versatile living space and wrap around gardens will please all and will particularly appeal to anyone seeking peace and tranquility whilst enjoying the surroundings that country living offers.
With the two outbuildings and plenty of parking too, there’s so much potential including an annexe. Heavenly!
