    About this property

    • Trengilly was originally conceived and built in the early 1980's, similar in form and arrangement to the neighbouring properties and forming part of a small-scale residential development. The houses were designed to respect the stunning and protected native woodland landscape, each house set within a generous garden plot to create an exclusive and contemporary sylvan address. The split-level house of Trengilly retains many of its original features which have been superbly maintained and every room enjoys stunning views of its leafy setting.

      Lower Ground Floor - The impressive entrance hall with its natural timber floor flows into a sequence of generous reception spaces, with the enclosing windows filling the rooms with light. The grand sitting room on the south side of the house has a feature gas fire and glazed double doors that open out into a large conservatory, blurring the boundaries between inside and outside with panoramic views over the mature gardens and paddock beyond. To one side of the sitting room, a further set of glazed, double doors leads into a peaceful study.

      At the eastern end of the entrance hall is the dining room, with sliding timber framed doors and side windows. A servery hatch opens through into the kitchen, with its original solid wood under and over counter units with feature glazed display cabinets and beige work surfaces. The kitchen is large enough for a central dining table and surrounding chairs and has a range of fitted appliances including a double AEG oven, gas hobs, a hood extractor and double stainless-steel sinks. Beyond the kitchen is a utility room containing the washing machine, tumble drier, dish washer, fridge freezer and there is a separate cloakroom with W.C. A door provides access into the back of the garage and another glazed rear door opens onto the side lawn. From the western end of the main entrance hall where you will find a useful cloak cupboard, there is a short flight of stairs ascending to a landing area at upper ground level.

      Upper Ground Floor - The landing has a spacious linen cupboard (housing the immersion tank) and a linear corridor leads into four generously sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom enjoys views overlooking the enclosing gardens to the south, providing the perfect relaxing retreat. A large ensuite bathroom offers a bath, corner shower cubicle, and W.C.

      The remaining bedrooms (excluding the principal bedroom) all have built in wardrobes and wood framed double glazed windows. The white tiled family bathroom has a bath with electric shower, a pedestal basin, built in vanity units, a W.C. and bidet. A roof hatch with integral ladders provides access to the large loft space from the landing.


      Exterior, gardens and garage - The large plot includes a generous private entrance drive with space for approximately four cars in addition to the double garage with electric roller doors. Fencing, hedges, Cornish hedges and mature shrubs and trees separate the grounds from the adjacent plots and neighbouring field.

      The gardens make use of the subtle level changes by the introduction of a series of garden terraces which include formal ponds, a woodland garden, flagstone terraces and the main lawn. The garden is beautifully planted, tended, encircled in mature and interesting tree stock, all maintained regularly by an experienced gardener.

      Behind the flowering Rhododendrons and under the canopies of the delicately leaved mature Japanese Acers is a large shed surrounded by patios and timber decking. Under the decking is an old pond. To the front of the property, a lockable bin store has been discretely built into a retaining wall.

    Local information

    • Trengilly is set within the Wellington Plantation, a secluded wooded location at the gateway to the Feock peninsula.
    • The Wellington woodland plantation was one of a number of areas planted with native hardwood, broad leaved trees established after the Napoleonic War by the Trelissick estate. The plantations have become the verdant, wooded setting to an exclusive development of predominantly single storey dwellings. The Penelewey and Feock area which was once a busy hub of shipbuilding and oyster fishing, is now one of Cornwall's most desirable addresses, within ten minutes drive of both the Duchy's capital, Truro and the harbour town of Falmouth.
    • This impressive property lies within walking distance of the Trelissick country estate and Feock's beautiful, historic maritime village with its thatched cob cottages, café and watersports centre.
    • In addition to its valuable woodland setting, the property is within easy reach of several of the area's popular destinations including Mylor yacht harbour, various golf courses, beaches, restaurants and cafés and is only a short ferry ride from the Trelissick estate's jetty to the town of Falmouth or the village of St Mawes where there is an impressive choice of wine bars, restaurants, boutique shops and heritage attractions.
    • The Feock peninsula has easy access to the A39, and the mainline rail station at Truro offers high speed connections to London and Scotland.
    • There are a good range of schools locally with Devoran primary school nearby and Truro and Falmouth have a selection of public and private schools with ‘Good' to ‘Outstanding' Ofsted rankings.
