  • Bedrooms: 4
A substantial 4 bedroom farmhouse set in beautiful mature grounds in a rural location. In addition to the charming farmhouse, there are also 3 outbuildings located within the plot, suitable for development into either holiday lets or ancillary accommodation, subject to all necessary consents.


'Pencoose Farmhouse' is a traditionally built four bedroom farmhouse, set in substantial, private grounds, surrounded by mature and well stocked gardens whilst backing onto fields and agricultural land.

The property, we believe, originally dates back to circa 1890 and was originally the main residence for a large smallholding.

The farmhouse has been beautifully maintained and extended during our clients' ownership, combining modern living with traditional characterful decor and managing to retain many character features including open fireplaces, high skirting boards, picture rails to a number of rooms and exposed stone walling.

Internally, the property has a large conservatory/garden room, an entrance porch as well as a beautifully fitted farmhouse-style kitchen with solid fuel Rayburn, together with two utility rooms, dark room, downstairs shower room, living room and separate dining room; whilst on the first floor level there are four bedrooms plus a family bathroom. To the exterior, the property has wrap-around gardens which are beautifully stocked with mature shrubs. There is also a detached garage as well as custom-built fuel storage facilities for the coal and wood, and, perhaps most excitingly, there are three outbuildings, perfect for development into holiday lets or ancillary accommodation for the main property, subject to all necessary consents.


'Pencoose Farmhouse' is located conveniently between the harbour town of Falmouth and the market town of Redruth, as well as being situated ideally for the cathedral city of Truro. The property is located in a rural location and is surrounded by agricultural land. Burncoose is located some seven miles distant from Falmouth where there is a vibrant town centre with many cafes, delis and public houses, as well as main retail amenities. The sailing waters of the Carrick Roads are also close at hand, providing possibly some of the best sailing waters in the UK whilst, for water sports enthusiasts, Stithians Reservoir is close at hand with the water sports centre and fantastic facilities it has to offer. Nearby in the market town of Redruth is a main-line railway link to London (Paddington) and the surfing beaches of the north coast will be found within easy motoring distance.
