  • Bedrooms: 4
Less than 1 mile from the creekside village of Gweek and the head of the beautiful Helford River, a superb 2-storey barn conversion, in a small, select complex of just 2 other properties, surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside and providing fabulous equestrian facilities including 5 acres of immediately adjacent land, stabling and all-weather sand school.


'The Hollies' is situated in a picturesque semi-rural setting, in a small complex of just two other properties, at the head of an attractive tree-lined lane, less than one mile from the village of Gweek.

Almost detached and of attractive granite and mellow stone elevations under a pitched roof of natural slate, the property provides well proportioned, appointed and maintained four-bedroomed accommodation with double glazing, oil fired central heating and oak flooring to most ground floor areas. Parking, including a car port, is provided immediately to the front of the property, providing a level and sheltered access to the ground floor living accommodation which includes a double aspect lounge with log-burner, study, magnificent family sized kitchen, dining and living room, together with a separate utility room. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a Juliet balcony, walk-in wardrobe and private shower room; there is a guest suite with further en-suite shower, with the two remaining bedrooms served by a superb family bathroom, again with contemporary white suite, including feature roll-top bath.

A formal garden area is readily accessed from the living accommodation, as is the large, walled and extremely sunny rear courtyard which is paved, gravelled and attractively planted.


Unusually, 'The Hollies' boasts a complete range of equestrian facilities which lie immediately adjacent to the property. Ample parking for additional vehicles and a horse box etc is provided, with much space for the construction of a garage if required, subject to consents. The stable yard comprises four stables and a tack room - 12' x 12' (3.66m x 3.66m), close to which is a kennel and all-weather sand school with post and rail fencing. The gently sloping land is well enclosed to all sides and has been divided to provide two paddocks, bisected by a 'track' which continues around the edge of the land - good riding out with nearest bridleway just 250 yards away.


The village of Gweek sits at the head of the picturesque Helford River and offers day-to-day amenities including a convenience store, public house, junior school and boatyard with repair and laying-up facilities. Constantine, another of this area's most sought-after villages, is just over one and a half miles away where facilities include a doctors surgery, church, sports club, junior school, two convenience stores, hairdressers, public house and active community hall - The Tolmen Centre. The neighbouring towns of Helston, Falmouth and Truro are approximately five, seven and fourteen miles distant respectively.
