Recently featured in Country Life. A deceptively spacious and versatile Grade II* Listed detached character 'Round House' of immense charm, delightfully appointed internally, it has beautiful private cottage style gardens with panoramic uninterrupted south facing countryside views to the rear.


A deceptively spacious and versatile Grade II* Listed detached character 'Round House' of immense charm, centrally located in one of the Roseland's most historic and traditional villages. Extended in the 1960's, this attractive family residence has similarities of the five round houses of Veryan, suggesting that the original property, believed to date back to 1760, might have been built by Hugh Rowe of Lostwithiel and even possibly for the same patron, the Reverend Jeremiah Trist, who built the round houses of Veryan for his daughters without any corners for the devil to lurk in! Delightfully appointed internally, the property has beautiful and private cottage style gardens, where panoramic and uninterrupted countryside and south facing views are found to the rear. According to our clients, the previous owners holiday let part of the cottage as a two bedroom, two-reception unit. Currently, the flexible accommodation (including the chalet) can sleep ten and is laid out having three double bedrooms, two living rooms, two kitchens and a dining room/conservatory.

The Round House

Character features are in abundance. The two 'D' shaped rooms, under a pair of conical scantle slate roofs are linked by a central vestibule and staircase. This has a central arched gothic detailed doorway with window over and original casement windows to the rounded walls at the front. The arched doorway (without door) to the staircase remains and original panel doors, beamed ceiling and gothic tracery still remain on the windows. Warmed by an oil fired central heating system, a useful side covered courtyard, detached chalet, lean to storage shed and parking space are located in the surrounding gardens. The property is conveniently located for the historic Roseland Inn public house, the sailing waters of St Mawes, sandy Pendower and Carne beaches and the King Harry Ferry. Suited towards the retiring or family lifestyle change buyer or the second homeowner, we strongly advise an internal inspection to fully appreciate this light and airy spacious residence.

Philleigh is renowned for its historic church and 16th century Roseland Inn. It is one of the prettiest country villages of the Roseland Peninsula, adjacent to the estuary of the River Fal, and stretching to Gerrans Bay in the East. The nearby villages of Gerrans and Portscatho provide day-to-day shopping facilities and primary schooling, and excellent secondary education is available at Tregony a few miles away. The well-known yachting centre of St Mawes, also within easy reach, offers access to some of the finest sailing waters in the United Kingdom on the Fal Estuary (Carrick Roads), Percuil River and Falmouth Bay. The cathedral city of Truro, 10 miles via the King Harry Car Ferry, provides a first-class selection of shopping, business and schooling facilities. London is 70 minutes by air from Newquay or approximately 4.5 hours by rail from Truro.
