Seller Insight

"The space, views and peacefulness Colvennor Farmhouse provides are second to none, set in a quiet location 150 metres from the nearest highway."

"It was the garden and views which first attracted us to this Grade II listed farmhouse," say the current owners, "and with its spacious interior layout, we could see the potential to create a comfortable home here. The original farmhouse was built in the 17th century, with later additions, and sits within a farmyard of three other owner-occupied properties converted from the original farm buildings in the 1990s."

"When we moved in, in August 2010", the owners continue, "the property was being run as a 6-guest B&B, and we continued with this until the end of 2016, when the 'guest wing' was converted to self-catering holiday accommodation. This involved the conversion of a downstairs bedroom with its en suite facilities to a kitchen-diner and utility room, and an upgrade of the electrics and fire alarm system. Other improvements include a new roof and two rebuilt chimney stacks, and the modernisation of the kitchen, main bathroom and two guest wing en suite bathrooms. New woodburning stoves have been installed in both the Drawing Room and Guest Sitting Room. With picturesque views and direct access to the garden, the Drawing Room is our favourite room in the house. In hot summer weather, the thick walls ensure it is cool, while in the winter, the efficient wood-burning stove in the inglenook ensures it is warm and cosy."

Outside, the two-acre grounds and surrounding farmland provide a beautiful complementto the house itself. "We have a large rear garden full of mature shrubs and flower beds," say the owners, "with sea views of Mounts Bay in the direction of Gunwalloe. The adjoining stable yard has a tack room, three loose boxes and a foaling box, and at the back of the rear garden is a paddock, so this is the perfect property for those with an equestrian interest. In 2012, our daughter was married at the Church of St Winwalloe, Gunwalloe (the Church on the Beach), and the reception was held in the garden with a marquee to seat 150 guests along with a catering tent. The paddock was used for parking and guest toilets."

The local area has much to offer, too. "Cury is a landlocked rural parish in the delightful Lizard Peninsula," say the owners, "an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a popular destination for holidaymakers because of its stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and fishing coves. The Parish has a church, a primary school with excellent facilities, and a Thai restaurant/take-way. Mullion, the largest village in the Lizard Peninsula, is 10 minutes away by car and has an excellent Secondary School, GP Surgery, Pharmacy, Co-Op with Post Office Counter, two pubs and several other shops. Helston, 10 minutes away by car, has three supermarkets, two banks, several filling stations and a large range of other shops and facilities. The city of Truro is 45 minutes away by car, and the nearest beach, Poldhu Cove, just 5 minutes away with a large car park, summer life-guard service and award-winning cafe. Mullion Golf Course, one of the most beautiful golf courses in England, is only 5 minutes away, too."

This handsome Grade II listed property with its dressed serpentine and granite facade could suit either those discerning purchasers who wish to own a superb fine family home in a lovely setting or to continue, in the same way as the current vendors, and commercially let part of the property for up to five guests in self catering holiday accommodation.
