2 pets welcome, Saturday changeover, Private parking
With sweeping views of the surrounding countryside towards Mounts Bay and just a 5 minute drive from the golden sandy beach at Praa Sands, this semi-detached former signal house dating back to the 1800’s is in a peaceful rural location.
Set in a conservation area, this comfortable double glazed family house is surrounded by the owner’s 18-acre smallholding where they provide a sanctuary for rescue animals, midway between Helston and Penzance.
Tregonning Hill House is in an elevated position at the end of a long unmade drive with visitor parking for three cars, the front door opens to an entrance lobby with an adjacent cloakroom W.C. and hand basin.
An inner glazed door opens directly into the light and airy living room with a warm rug on the parquet floor and comfortable lounge seating facing the wood burning stove. A pine dining suite is set in a large bay window with far reaching views across the extensive garden to the sea in the distance.
At the rear of the property are a fully fitted kitchen and a door to one side opens to a ground floor bedroom with twin beds and countryside views from a cushioned window seat.
Carpeted stairs lead up from the sitting room to the first floor landing, a bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath and two bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom has a double bed with panoramic views of Mounts Bay and an en-suite bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath. The second bedroom has two single beds, a vanity basin and fine weather views across to Goonhilly Satellite Station and The Lizard.
Visitors have the sole use of a gravel terrace with picnic tables to one side of the house and over an acre of grassy garden, ideal to exercise dogs and for children to run off steam. Guests also have direct access on to a network of local footpaths. There is an outside tap and shed for storage of beachgear and wetsuits.
There are several village pubs within a short drive, the closest being at Ashton half a mile away. The ancient coinage town of Helston has a good selection of shops and is 10 minutes by car, and the nearest beach is at Praa Sands 2.5 miles where there is also a golf course.
There is an abundance of beautiful coastal paths and inland walks with breathtaking scenery close by and the seaside resorts of Penzance, St Ives and Marazion, home to St Michaels Mount, are within a 20 minute drive respectively. Although rural the property enjoys easy road access and provides an ideal base for exploring the West of Cornwall.
