A delightful property set within a 42 acre estate in the grounds of a picturesque Grade II listed former hospital which was converted in 1999. The property overlooks a manicured courtyard and onto beautiful woodlands.
The property is located within a select development of fine homes built and converted in 1999 and set within the grounds of the Tehidy Park Country Estate. Located in both a Conservation Area and An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the grounds were once part of the Basset family estate which then became the South Tehidy Hospital. The estate has a mixture of woodland and lawned areas which are under common ownership of the properties within the grounds allowing free un-encumbered use of the spaces.
Steps lead down to a shared courtyard for four properties which are all in part of the original manor house. In one corner a door leads into the house. A good sized entrance hall has doors leading to the kitchen, sitting room, ground floor bedroom and cloak room and has stairs leading up to the additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
The kitchen is of a good size with a range of matching cabinetry running along two sides of the room. There is an integral electric oven and hob (which could be converted back to gas), extractor fan and wine rack, with space for a dishwasher and under counter freezer. A 1 1/2 bowl stainless steel sink with drainer sits below one of a pair of large sash windows. The kitchen has space for a table and chairs and freestanding fridge.
The adjoining sitting/dining room is of generous proportions and includes an area for a dining table and chairs with a skylight above, just beyond the kitchen. A lounge area is located around an electric fan heater fireplace and there is space for an additional seating area. There is a large under stairs cupboard. An attractive granite column adds visual interest beyond which French doors are set within one of two original arches which open out to the courtyard. Tucked away from the sitting room is a smaller area, ideal as a study.
A door from the main reception room leads into a useful utility room with matching upper and lower cupboards and room for a washing machine and dryer. Fitted with a stainless steel sink.
The reception hall also provides access to a cloakroom with concealed cistern and white vanity unit and a large double bedroom with dual aspect sash windows.
Upstairs there are two further double bedrooms. The first, to the front of the property, has two windows overlooking the common green and a smaller feature window on the western side. There is a well presented family bathroom with all white sanitary ware and a tiled bath surround with a shower over. The master bedroom has a pair of south facing windows overlooking the courtyard of the property. There is an en-suite with south and west facing windows and the same fittings as the family bathroom.
The landing houses a hot water cylinder and has a hatch to the loft. Windows face the front of the property.
As previously mentioned, outside the sitting room, there is a gravelled courtyard garden which is walled to three sides creating a sun trap. The fourth side opens into the common central courtyard and sunken garden between the three wings of the original property. The walled garden can be accessed from this area. There is very much an Italian estate feel to the property, indeed one of the neighbouring properties is called the Italian Pavilion. This courtyard is then open to a larger lawned parkland area which overlooks the woodlands of Tehidy Park.
The garage is situated on the road approaching the main house. Electricity is installed.
This property has style and character and is set within attractive mature grounds. It would be equally suited as a main residence or as a second home and, as it has very low maintenance requirements, would work well as a lock-up-and-go property.
The property sits at the end of South Drive which was a carriage drive to the mansion of Tehidy with a pretty thatched lodge guarding the entrance to a 700-acre park. Within these grounds now reside Tehidy Country Park and Tehidy Park Golf Club. The park has over 9 miles (14.5km) of paths and 250 acres of peaceful woods and lakes to explore, together with a café and a picnic area. Residents have their own access to the Park. The golf club is an 18 hole par 71 picturesque course, catering to golfers of all levels of experience. Despite a serene and picturesque location the property lies within easy reach of a wide range of towns and amenities. The A30 is a few minutes drive away and links a number of the principle Cornish towns including Camborne, Penzance, Bodmin and Launceston. Also readily accessible is St Ives where a number of shops line the narrow streets. The Cathedral city of Truro is approximately 14 miles distant and Exeter and the M5 approximately 95 miles away.
