About this property

  • Set within beautiful gardens, just a short distance from the peaceful Helford River and within the North Helford AONB, Treviades Barton is a charming Grade II* Listed home. The house has far reaching views to the south, taking in the rolling countryside of the Lizard, with glimpses of the Helford River and sea beyond. Originally a manor dating from the 16th century, Treviades Barton was remodelled in the late 18th century. It is understood that there has been a settlement at this location since the 14th century, which at the time was owned by the Trevyados family, then later the Trefusis family who held it until the early 20th century.

    The property is accessed through a beautiful wisteria-hung internal courtyard, surrounded on three sides by the house and a high, gated wall to the fourth. The slate flagstone pathway leads to an ornate entrance. The inner hallway has doors through to the kitchen and formal reception hall, with WC and access to a boot/utility room. The kitchen/breakfast room has an open fireplace and bespoke fitted kitchen, with granite worktops, an Everhot range, integral appliances and hidden storage areas. Sash windows with window seats overlook the courtyard. From the kitchen, a back door leads to the rear garden and a slate patio.

    The drawing room has south facing views, through two large recessed sash windows with window seats, over the walled garden and towards the Lizard Peninsula. The room is half panelled and has two fireplaces, one with a Charnwood multi-fuel stove inset. French doors lead to a granite porch, giving access to the walled garden. The triple aspect dining room has wood panelling in the most part, with some original exposed granite walls. There is a large fireplace with granite surround and a Jotul wood burner inset. Above the doorway, there is an attractive period lintel.

    A turning staircase with large original window leads to the first floor galleried landing, where there are three bedrooms at the front of the house, all enjoying south facing views. The principal bedroom suite has fitted cupboards and access to a dressing room, which could be used as a further bedroom, and a spacious en suite bathroom. There is a shared bathroom on the landing and a further en suite bedroom at the back of the house.

    Adjacent to the kitchen on the ground floor, there is a further reception room, with fitted kitchenette, a WC and utility area. A second staircase leads to two further bedrooms, one currently used as a study with fitted shelving and cupboards, and a bathroom. Whilst currently part of the main house, this area could be made self-contained if required, with independent access creating the potential for an annexe or secondary guest accommodation if required.

    The gardens at Treviades Barton wrap around the majority of the house and are very well maintained and much loved. To the south side of the house is a walled garden with a lawn, separated from the house by a cobbled terrace. A gateway leads to the eastern side of the house which features extensive and well established beds, with pathways leading between the beds and to a rose garden.

    Cornish stone walls separate different parts of the garden, with steps leading up to a croquet lawn. A productive vegetable garden is located at the eastern end of the croquet lawn, with a selection of beds, fruit cages and a wood/glass greenhouse, producing a wide range of soft fruits and vegetables. To the north of the garden is a copse, with access to the paddock.

    There is further land across the lane from the house, which offers views to the west and south towards the Helford River and the Lizard. A double garage and bothy are also sited across the lane and have potential for conversion to separate residential accommodation (STPP). There are two sheds in the copse, one serving as a workshop and the other for storage.

Local information

  • Treviades Barton is set between Port Navas and Constantine, on the north side of the Helford River. Constantine is a busy village with a well regarded primary school, a popular store/delicatessen with a nationally renowned range of fine wines and spirits, doctors' surgery, a local shop, pub, performing arts venue and church. Port Navas, on the banks of Port Navas Creek, has an active yacht club.
  • The Helford River is one of the most beautiful, historic and unspoilt rivers in Cornwall, with its deep valleys, ancient oak forests and hidden creeks that cut inland along this sheltered part of the south Cornwall coast. It was renowned as a haven for pirates and inspired many writers, famously Daphne du Maurier with her Frenchman's Creek novel. There are many small quays and secluded coves on the river to visit by boat, while a pedestrian ferry links the north and south banks.
  • The area offers safe swimming and sailing facilities and a wonderful natural harbour from which to explore the south Cornish coast, much of which is owned and protected by the National Trust. As well as having fine coastal walks and creek paths, the area also has a mild climate suited to many sub-tropical plants, as the famous gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah illustrate so well.
  • The vibrant university town of Falmouth, with its beaches, yacht marinas, National Maritime Museum, varied restaurants and The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club is just seven miles away and has a variety of primary and secondary schools. The cathedral city of Truro is approximately 12.5 miles away and provides an excellent range of shopping and schooling facilities together with a mainline rail link to London Paddington. Cornwall Airport (Newquay) provides three daily return flights to London Gatwick, along with other domestic and international destinations.
