    A unique opportunity to purchase an exceptionally broad fronting, four double bedroom, two reception room, two bath/shower room, detached period former farmhouse of huge charm, built circa 1760, offering exceptionally spacious accommodation throughout, private off road parking, and with the benefit of an enchanting mature garden, profusely stocked with many fine specimen plants. The versatile property also offers a detached Barn Annexe which incorporates a double garage, with a delightful one bedroom annexe apartment above.

    The period farmhouse has part exposed stone, painted rendered external elevations, under a pitched slate tiled roof, mainly UPVC sash style windows and warmed by an oil fired central heating system. The property is further warmed during the winter months by a log burning stove situated in the snug, together with the impressive oil fired 'Aga' located in the kitchen permeating warmth throughout the home.

    This versatile home in addition, offers a character detached barn annexe which incorporates a double garage and a store on the ground floor. A staircase ascends from the back of the garage to the first floor which includes a double bedroom, kitchen, living/dining room and a shower room. The annexe would potentially suit a dependent relative or teenage crash pad etc.

    Without doubt, the gardens are a fabulous feature to this desirable home, consisting of generous lawns, a plethora of established specimen plants, an orchard, flowering stocked borders and a haven for visiting wild birds throughout the seasons. The gardens are a delightful place to relax and dine out al fresco, while enjoying this idyllic oasis which has taken years to mature and carefully cultivate.


    The village of St Keverne caters for every day needs and facilities including a shop, two public houses, health centre, church and primary school with comprehensive schooling being located at Mullion or Helston. The area is cradled by many beautiful coves and creeks with areas of outstanding natural beauty. The Helford is a short drive away with its majestic and renowned sailing waters. Coverack, the next village on, is without doubt one of Cornwall's hidden gems, tucked away on the southern part of the Lizard peninsula offering a stunning traditional granite built sheltered harbour and a fine sandy beach which is always popular with locals and tourists alike. Within this very traditional Cornish village one will find restaurants, gallery, general store, hotels and St Peter's church which nestles on the hillside. Echoes of a proud fishing industry remain in Coverack, where a cluster of nets, lobster pots and small fishing boats lie within the protective granite arms of the harbour. There are quaint colour washed thatched cottages along a maze of back streets and lanes. This part of the Cornish coastline is a haven for coastal path walkers who enjoy some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on offer within this unspoilt part of the Lizard peninsula. Much of the surrounding coastline and countryside is in stewardship of the National Trust and is an area of outstanding beauty.


    From Helston, take the St Keverne road, whereupon the property can be found on the right hand side 0.6 mile past the Coverack turning. The property is located just before entering the village of St Keverne.
