Description

This bespoke light and airy and spacious home has an abundance of character installed yet still retains much of the original charm and features of the original farmhouse. Our clients have painstakingly sourced many old fixtures with a history of their own.

Walls have been taken back to the bare stone and cob and rendered in lime plaster, as done originally in the olden days.

The Views

The views from the property are inspiring and capture the beautiful landscape. Equally, this very private home is conveniently located to many local beautiful beaches, delightful walks, local boatyards as well as the facilities of Truro, the Cathedral city of Cornwall.

History

Archived back to 1293 as Penmene, in Cornish 'Pen' meaning head, end or top, and 'Meneth' meaning hill, thus 'head of the hill' Polmenna Farmhouse was one of 6 single farmsteads of Tretheake Manor and has archived references dating from 1465 to 1776. Much of the western part of the Caerhays Eastate was formerly neighboured by the ancient Manor of Tretheake and occupied most of the eastern third of Veryan. It was surveyed as part of the Doomsday book and was originally owned by the Bodruggan family, who lost the land in the War of the Roses to the Edgecumbes of whom were well connected by the Trevannions of Caerhays. Both the local farmsteads of Penheakin and Polmenna, (then owned by the Robartes), were surveyed in 1695 as part of the Lanhydrock Estate. Tretheake and Trevennen were sold by auction by the Edgcumbe family in 1919 where the Caerhays Estate became the area's principal estate.

Situation and Amenities

Caerhays

The privately owned Caerhays Estate offers beautiful natural gardens and was designed by John Nash around 200 years ago. Both the building and its occupants have played significant roles in the history of Cornwall.

Portholland Beach

East and West Portholland are inhabited by around 40 permanent residents. Virtually all of the properties are owned by the Caerhays Castle Estate, one time home of the ancient Trevallion family. In 1860 the estate and community was sold to the Williams family, whom have sought, to this present day, to making the area a farm based community, detached from the hurley-burley of modern day life. Polsue is an equidistant between Truro, St Austell and St Mawes and is an ideal base for exploring deeper into the natural beauty of the Roseland Peninsula.

Truro Cathedral City

The centre for administration, commerce and tourism, Truro, called after Tri-veru, meaning three rivers, has developed over the years as the city of Cornwall. It offers excellent private and public education and Truro College is now re-known for its excellent success in further education.
