The village of Polbathic stands on a tributary of the River Lynher and has a pub and village hall. The nearby village of St Germans has sought after village facilities including a main line railway station (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours), providing a very useful commuting link, community shop, primary school, doctors' surgery, church, public house and a sailing club.
St Germans is also home to the beautiful Port Eliot Estate with its fascinating parkland gardens and the house is now open to the public. A wide range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities are available at Saltash including a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts.
St Mellion International Golf Resort lies approximately 13 miles distant and the city of Plymouth lies within a relatively short commute and has an excellent shopping centre which is adjacent to the historic and beautiful waterfront areas of the Barbican and Hoe. Plymouth also has a ferry port with regular services to France and Northern Spain.
The wide expanses and beaches of Whitsand and Looe Bay are only a short drive away.

A unique development opportunity of a farmstead with a range of traditional agricultural buildings with planning consent for residential development, offering huge potential. This unique opportunity consists of a beautiful and sizable farmhouse with beautiful views and a large detached barn offering further potential in addition three traditional agricultural barns with consent for conversion into dwellings. All set in around three acres.
The site has been cleared and the access roads are in place ready for the commencement of works.

This traditional Cornish farmhouse was constructed in 1903 over two levels, situated in an elevated position with a southerly aspect and enjoys spectacular far reaching views over the rolling green Cornish countryside. Today Treskelly Farmhouse is in need of refurbishment but would create a significant family home. To the rear of the property is a sizable two storey traditional agricultural building with a multitude of potential uses, subject to the necessary consents.
The house was inhabited until recently and needs updating throughout. It enjoys all the proportions of a grand farmhouse of the turn of the century, with high ceilings and large and airy rooms, original features and character aplenty.
On the ground floor the accommodation includes: sitting room, drawing room, breakfast room, kitchen and utility. On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The accommodation extends to almost 3,000 square feet, in addition to a further 3,000 square feet of detached two storey barn, located to the north of the main house.
