About this property

  • The property has been converted into a spacious and flexible family home without losing its links with the past. The main entrance leads from a small porch straight into an impressive open plan area which has been cleverly subdivided into three distinct areas of kitchen, dining and sitting room. At one end is the kitchen with mezzanine above that looks back down over the dining room and sitting room at the far end. The kitchen has exposed ceiling beams, exposed wooden flooring, an island/breakfast bar a good range of kitchen units to include an electric range with gas hob, integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and boiling tap with granite work surfaces throughout. To one side of the kitchen is the staircase up to the mezzanine area which is currently being used as a further bedroom but could be a second reception or study. The dining and sitting room have double height ceilings, part exposed wooden flooring, a reclaimed granite fire surround with 14kw wood burning stove. From the sitting room is a door to the rear lobby with slate flooring and access to the utility/family bathroom with bath, separate shower, space for washing machine and tumble dryer. Beneath this area is a small cellar which is accessed from outside.

    Off the kitchen is the principal bedroom with double height ceiling, built-in wardrobes, wood burning stove with plenty of space to make a cosy seating area. Also off the kitchen is the inner hall with oak flooring that leads to a double bedroom with en suite shower room, a further double bedroom and separate shower room.

    The property has double glazing throughout with further secondary glazing on the road side.


    From Frog Hill is a sweeping drive that leads through iron gates up to a level parking area and the detached oak framed double garage with studio above which is accessed via an external wooden staircase. Adjacent to the double garage is a small stone building divided into three areas of storage plus a log store. From the parking area steps lead up to the walled garden/terrace with hot tub and steps up to the main entrance of the house. From the rear lobby down some granite steps is the bio mass heating system beyond which is an area of lawn and flower beds and at the far end of this area is a further small stone-built outhouse for garden storage.

Local information

  • The Old School House is located on the edge of the village of Ponsanooth a traditional Cornish village tucked away from the main tourist hotspots. Ponsanooth has a particularly interesting history based around the river Kennall that runs through the village and was a hive of industry during the 18th and 19th century. It was home to the gunpowder works that ceased activity in 1910 and is now the Kennall Vale Nature Reserve of twenty acres of woodland and waterfalls and home to some fantastic wildlife. The village has an award-winning village shop, a recently restored chapel/community hall that hosts a voluntary community coffee shop three days a week, a monthly market and a plethora of community activities. There is also a good village pub ‘The Stag Hunt Inn' and a primary school.
  • The surrounding countryside provides ample opportunities for walkers and sports enthusiasts. There are good local golf courses within easy reach and of course many sailing clubs throughout Falmouth and the Carrick Roads. The Cathedral city of Truro, the administrative centre of Cornwall is a short drive away and offers a very good range of schooling both state and private, a mainline rail link to London Paddington, an excellent range of national and independent shops, restaurants and bars along with a cinema, museum and a highly regarded theatre (currently under refurbishment). Cornwall Airport (Newquay) provides daily return flights to London as well as to other regional and European destinations. A few miles to the south is the vibrant port and university town of Falmouth with excellent leisure and water sports facilities and safe sandy beaches.
