A rare opportunity to purchase a fully renovated stunning three / four-bedroom Grade II listed Georgian character cottage sitting within beautiful grounds with coastal and sea views. Trewince Manor Cottage is a striking property with ample parking and garden within a mature setting at Trewince Manor, an estate of 26 acres. The National Trust owned headland of St Anthony is on the doorstep with its renowned lighthouse and beaches.
Trewince Manor Cottage is full of character and history probably consisting of two separate cottages in the past. The ground floor comprises a good-sized half glazed entrance porch with front door leading into the spacious lounge with an original range cooker, clome oven, slate floor and beamed ceiling. Stairs lead to the first floor. From the lounge an inner hallway, with a cloak-room and downstairs bathroom off, leads into the kitchen which has an Aga and flagstone floor, an open beam ceiling, exposed stone and brick walls and also a well under the floor (glass panel in floor). From here is a door out to the enclosed walled courtyard. From the opposite end of the lounge, steps lead down to the snug / bedroom 4 which again has a flagstone floor and beamed ceiling. There is an attractive arched wooden door to the garden. A second staircase leads to the first floor.
The first floor consists of three bedrooms, all with en suite facilities. Bedroom one, the owner informs us was once a gun room and also a chapel, is accessed via the staircase from the snug. It has a lovely open vaulted ceiling. It also has an arched wooden door leading to some steps to the garden. This end of the property, the snug and bedroom en suite, have potential to be used as an annexe or accommodation for a teenager / relative. Bedrooms two and three are accessed from the staircase off the lounge. They have attractive vaulted ceilings, exposed walls and wood panelling.
There is a five-bar gate, beside which are two parking spaces, leading into the gravelled driveway. To the front of the cottage is a level lawned area with a surrounding fence and also trees, plants and shrubs.
Trewince Manor Cottage has been carefully updated and renovated to a high specification over the years, very much in keeping with the original character of the cottage and is in excellent order throughout. It has been used as a holiday letting property which new owners could continue.
