Further Information

Old Treboul Farmhouse presents a truly unique opportunity to rebuild and enhance a former traditional farmhouse and barn. Set within rolling countryside and surrounded by farmland, the elevated site has a southerly aspect with views across the Polbathic valley. Currently in a dilapidated condition, planning consent has been obtained to rebuild the farmhouse into a 4-bedroom property with a separate 1-bedroom annex with kitchen and studio accommodation, along with further consent to convert a former outbuilding, located a convenient distance from the main farmhouse, into a separate 2-bedroom property. The two dwellings lie either side of a private driveway from the public highway and are surrounded by land and woodland, including a former well and pond area. The property is divided into two lots but may suit sole ownership with the annex and outbuilding being used for either housing family members or self-catering holiday accommodation.


Access is gained directly from the public highway along a private driveway that forms part of the property.


The property benefits from a planning consent from Cornwall Council dated 31st October 2016, reference PA16/05492 for the ‘Reuse of a dilapidated farmhouse and barns to provide two dwellings together with annex and studio accommodation'. Further details can be provided by the agent or downloaded from the Council's interactive planning website.


Covenants will be imposed in order to protect the property and the surrounding area which will remain in the vendors ownership. The use of the property will be limited to two dwellings and approval of plans will be required prior to construction if the proposed development is to differ from the consented plans that currently benefit the property.


Prospective purchasers should make their own investigations as to the provision and costs of such services.
