Located around one mile inland from the pebbly beach at Porthallow, Tregarne Farm nestles in the rural hamlet of Tregarne with views from the grounds across surrounding countryside to the waters of Falmouth Bay.
The Lizard remains one of the most unspoilt areas in Cornwall renowned for its picturesque coastal scenery and untouched rural hinterland. The peninsula is the most southerly point of England with wide expanses designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and owned by private estates or The National Trust. Porthallow itself is a traditional Cornish fishing village with an attractive beach and the highly regarded Five Pilchards Inn. Once a busy cove engaged in the pilchard industry, there are still a small number of local fishermen who use the cove and the beach has become a favourite for its superb views across the mouth of the Helford River.
Within approximately two miles is the village of St Keverne which provides an excellent range of amenities whilst more extensive facilities are available within the historic market town of Helston.
Other nearby beaches and coves include those at Coverack, Kynance and Kennack Sands whilst the beautiful wooded creeks of the Helford River are also readily accessible.THE PROPERTY
Set in the very heart of the hamlet, Tregarne Farm is an extremely pretty cluster of character properties arranged around landscaped gardens with a pond and mature Date Palm at the centre.
The farmhouse retains a number of features and has been sensitively renovated to provide extremely comfortable accommodation that perfectly blends the old with a more contemporary style. Interlinking directly with the main farmhouse at both ground and first floor levels is 'The Withy' which although currently let as a holiday cottage can simply be opened up to create a significant residence for a larger family or annexed multi-generational living.
The two single storey holiday cottages have been thoughtfully converted and extended from traditional stone barns to provide stunning one-bedroom units that are both presented and appointed to the highest of standards.
Hope's Cabin is the latest addition, ready for the 2021 season. This charming larch shingle clad cabin has been constructed specifically for the vendors and provides wonderful holiday accommodation for couples, complete with copper bath and broad sun deck.The Farmhouse & The Withy
Encompassing 'The Withy', the main residence comprises the original farmhouse and later conversion of a barn with further addition.
A superb family home, the property is approached directly into the spacious kitchen/dining room that has been appointed with a muted contemporary kitchen by Nolte featuring Silestone worksurfaces, a comprehensive range of Fisher & Paykel appliances and the striking original yellow Rayburn. A curved link lobby leads to the quadruple aspect vaulted sitting room with exposed floor boards and Clearview wood burning stove. The ground floor is completed with a utility, staircase hall and second reception room also with a Clearview wood burning stove.
Rising to the first floor, one finds three bedrooms and an impressive contemporary bathroom with double ended bath and walk-in shower.

Extending to around an acre in total, the well-maintained landscaped gardens encircle a delightful pond, gently shaded by a mature Date Palm. Nansbara and Marbles adjoin this central feature whilst the farmhouse enjoys views across the lawn to the pond.
To one side of Nansbara, steps rise to an elevated viewing deck with views across countryside to Falmouth Bay. There are further lawns to the rear of Nansbara and Marbles. The farmhouse and The Withy also have lovely mature gardens with hot tub, seating areas, lawn and established flowers, shrubs and trees. Outside the front door, there is a secluded south facing area surrounded by the farmhouse on 3 sides.
There are two independent shared driveways to the property allowing access to either side with two parking areas. On the opposite side of one is a further area of the grounds with garden shed and polytunnel.THE BUSINESS
