The Owners Words
"Living at Penvose has been as close as I imagine I could get to being Danny Champion of the World! being surrounded by such amazing trees, wildlife and nature. You'll soon be adding deer, owls, foxes, badgers and woodpeckers to your list of sightings! Penvose has been a fantastic place to bring up our children, providing a unique opportunity for them to experience nature close up and to play in their own enchanted woodland garden. I have no doubt your children or grandchildren would love it too. It's been fantastic to live in such a tranquil spot and at the same time be so close to such wonderful places as St Ives, Falmouth and the magical Lizard Peninsula. And you'll never be at a loss for a beautiful sandy beach. There are so many to choose from nearby."
This charming 3 bedroomed Victorian home enjoys a most idyllic setting in rural tranquillity surrounded by rolling countryside and woodland. The property benefits from its own private piece of detached woodland, with a stream running the length of the land and beautiful mature trees capturing all that is magical about the rural hamlet of Chynhale.
The ground floor boasts two very well-proportioned reception rooms which space is emphasised by the wonderful Victorian traits of high ceilings and large sash windows providing wonderful natural light. To the front is the main living room which overlooks the private and enclosed mature garden whilst internally enjoying characterful period features and exposed wooden floors. A central wood burner and fireplace with slate hearth create an attractive focal point for the room. The adjoining second reception room, which also connects to the kitchen offers great versatility as a dining room, second sitting room or potentially a home office to meet the current work from home demand.
The triple aspect single storey extension to the rear houses the U-shaped fitted kitchen. The property has undergone recent improvements, but the kitchen is a great blank canvass that still leaves scope to add your own stamp cosmetically. Access from the kitchen steps out to a small courtyard, opposite which is a row of useful outbuilding stores, between which is a gardeners loo.
There are three bedrooms that look out to neighbouring countryside and a family bathroom to the first floor with exposed wooden flooring running throughout. The bathroom was next on the list to improve which gives the new owner an option for personalisation.
A beautiful wall garden defines the boundary of the property and offers a nostalgic throwback to when the property was a part of the historic Trevarno Estate. Gated access from the parking area to the side gives access to the rear garden which is laid to lawn and patio with mature shrubs and trees and a decked are to the bottom of the garden, perfect for BBQs and enjoys sun all day. The front garden also enjoys well stocked, mature borders as well as a level lawn.
In addition to a generous and peaceful plot of garden, there is a fantastic detached parcel of woodland of approx. 1.5 acres. The land seems to continue indefinitely as you explore your way through grounds surrounded by wildlife and the sound of the flowing stream. There are excellent open areas within the woodland to create further alfresco dining spots to enjoy.
There is allocated parking adjacent to the property.
The property is connected to mains water and electric with drainage to a septic tank and LPG fired central heating.
Penvose is situated in the peaceful Hamlet of Chynhale near Sithney which is conveniently located between the north and south coast offering easy access to St Ives (13 miles), Falmouth and the Lizard peninsula (14 miles), and near the picturesque market town of Helston (4 miles).
5 miles to the south is the historic fishing port of Porthleven which provides a range of excellent eateries and is recognised as a hotspot for foodies, hosting an annual food festival. Also close by are an array lots of beautiful sandy beaches, Praa Sands, Perranuthnoe, Rinsey Cove, Poldhu, Church Cove as well as being a short distance from the iconic St Michael's Mount.
Penvose was once part of the historic Trevarno Estate. Trevarno is first mentioned in the accounts of the Earldom of Cornwall 1296 as the house of Randulphus de Trevarno. This is a particularly picturesque part of the county where time seems to have stood still. Farmland is interspersed by mature woodland and country lanes where the Estate wall and high banks are covered in lichen, ferns and wild flowers. The setting for the Estate, and the Estate itself, is nothing short of enchanting.
There is very good transport access to Cornwall with the M5 at Exeter (106 miles) and train services operating between Camborne Station and London Paddington with journey times from approximately 4¾ hours. There are regular scheduled flights that connect Newquay Airport (35 miles) with Gatwick, Heathrow and various other European destinations.
From Helston take the A394 towards Penzance. Having climbed the hill out of the town turn right onto the B3302 and after a little over one mile right again onto the B3303. After ¼ mile turn right signposted Chynhale. At the bottom of the hill follow the road around to the left and the property will be found immediately on the right-hand side
