Bought by our clients in August 1999, who relocated to Cornwall yearning for a lifestyle change after instantly falling in love with Trelissa Farmhouse and The Roseland Peninsula, locally known as the ‘Jewel in Cornwall’s Crown’. They immediately went to work on a restoration project with a vision of maintaining the property’s original features.
Trelissa Farmhouse today is a beautiful detached mellow stone and slated country house built circa 1830. It was the largest working farm on the Roseland with land that originally extended down to the King Harry Ferry. It was bought by Parker Farms in1983 until 1995 with a combination of arable farming and bulbs. When it was sold in 1995 it was divided into two with the largest part of the outbuildings continuing as a working farm and the main residence as a private home.
As one drives down the private driveway one gets a feel as to the splendid location and impressiveness this spacious family residence of distinction offers. The gardens create privacy yet compliment the natural surroundings. The two luxury holiday cottages provide a lucrative income whilst the former stable block could be converted, subject to any necessary consents, in to a further ancillary holiday letting cottage or formalised as an office to work at home from. For the equestrian, the stable block could be changed back to its former use very easily.
The main house is striking in appearance and offers deceptively spacious and versatile accommodation over three floors. Suited towards the lifestyle change buyer looking to live in our wonderful area looking for a quality life, we strongly advise an appointment to view internally to fully appreciate the fine qualities this rare opportunity and fine example of period architecture has to offer.
The Gardens and Grounds (circa 2.6 acres)
In the spring Trelissa truly blooms with hundreds of daffodils along the driveway, flower beds and paddocks. In addition, there are a myriad of primroses on the banks of the perimeter. The gardens capture the all day and evening sun and were landscaped by the current owners with many flowering shrubs and trees are now well established. The gardens have been planted by our clients for ease of maintenance and to provide a diverse habitat for wildlife and safe enjoyment of the family and children/grandchildren. To the rear is an expanse of lawn, formerly used as a pony paddock, and now houses a maturing vegetable garden and fruit trees.
