As you drive up the private tree-lined lane, the magnificent grounds and gardens come into view, surrounded by unspoilt countryside with uninterrupted views over to Trencrom Hill on the outskirts of St Ives. There is so much to see: the three properties are complemented by picture perfect courtyards, private gardens, level and well enclosed productive fields and a large agricultural barn with your very own resident barn owls. 

Throughout the entire estate are coveted original features, making it a country lover’s absolute dream. Just a peek through the Listed front door of the main property, and you can see plank and muntin panelling, open fireplaces and stunning beamed ceilings. Each of the small-pane sash windows frame gorgeous views to the courtyard gardens and extensive formal lawned gardens beyond.

The amount of love and care that has gone into the renovations is obvious – the finest local materials and specialist craftsmanship enables the properties’ original structures and features to shine through with modern touches for ease of living. Each building has been decorated to an exceptional standard, ready to live in and rent the smaller buildings as holiday lets. You could even have your parents or relatives live in them; head over to the Hay Barn to sample grandma’s freshly baked scones, or to the Granary to visit your sister and her family, enjoying breakfast in their private courtyard garden, the children running around the field beyond.

And with a mature vegetable patch, greenhouse and PV solar panels, you could become self-sufficient and live the ultimate dream in your 12.5 acres of land. This property is supported by a presenter-led film tour ala Kirstie and Phil’.
