About this property

  • Trenance Farmhouse is typical of a few houses located in such a prominent location that they are recalled in happy memories of holidays spent on the Cornish coast. Or perhaps often seen and noted on a subconscious wish list. As the coast road turns out of Trenance towards the next magnificent sea view, the farmhouse is a reassuring and timeless reminder to return.

    A wide, white rendered front under a slate roof, with the small paned windows of a house sheltering from the weather for a few centuries: this house is solid. Step inside to see how naturally lit it is and spacious.

    The wide front door opens to a slate floored hall, and to the right a generously proportioned dining room where a table for twelve sits well in the centre of the room. It features a deep hearth set into which is a wood burner. The beamed ceiling and oak floor add to the sense of cosiness and the south facing window gives a sunny aspect and view over the garden.

    The kitchen is conveniently open to the dining room and is well equipped with a gas range, integrated appliances and fitted units, including a larder cupboard. Next is the utility room, newly fitted with large cupboards housing laundry facilities, a new boiler and large water tank. A porch opens to the rear entrance door. Back stairs to the first floor rise from the utility room.

    At the front of the house is a large, comfortable sitting room, with deep inset wood burner and a door leading to the adjoining reception room, referred to by the vendor as the snug, another good-sized room with large, slouchy sofas. Beyond this is the original back kitchen, now a pleasant, light room with fitted cupboards and a modern Belfast sink, convenient for the BBQ patio just outside the exterior door. Also usefully situated here is the downstairs shower room, fitted with a new digital Mira shower, dual heated towel rail and attractively tiled. A double bedroom with inbuilt storage space and two windows to the rear of the house, completes the ground floor.

    All the stripped pine doors are the originals, adding to the character of this traditional house.

    Upstairs there is the family bathroom, nicely modernised with a deep freestanding bath and heated towel rail. Next, is the principal double bedroom with a deep window seat overlooking the front garden, as in all the front facing bedrooms. There is a built-in closet and an en suite shower room, with large, freestanding digital shower.

    The adjoining room, currently fitted with bunk beds could be a small double bedroom. Next is a larger double or twin bedroom that has an attractive wood panelled wall with a high display shelf. Completing the front facing bedrooms is a lovely room large enough for a super king bed. Across the landing is the sixth double bedroom with deep set shelves and alcove storage. The third shower room also overlooks the rear of the house, is naturally well-lit, nicely tiled and suitably modernised to a high standard as found throughout the house. Along the first-floor landing there are useful alcoves and cupboards and the back staircase leading down to the utility/laundry room. The front stair well is lit by a decorative glass window.

    All other windows are replacement sash windows; beams are original; carpets, wooden floors and new flagstones replace the old uneven floors and LED lights provide tasteful lighting. The kitchen has underfloor heating.

    The slate roof was replaced in 1992 and the rear extension added in the 1930, but the whole house presents a characterful charm, enhanced by the wisteria around the front door.

    The lawned front garden is secure for pets and children. A more private, enclosed stone patio is perfect for entertaining, with a large table and access directly to the back kitchen. A second lawned garden, behind a wall, has herb beds and a drying area.

    A path at the side of the house leads to a large stone outhouse with a loft that could be converted to a domestic space and linked to the back kitchen.

This is a wonderful farmhouse which has been newly renovated to a fabulous standard and has a healthy holiday-income history to boot.
