In an idyllic rural setting, yet just 1.5 miles from the well served village of Constantine and 4 miles from Port Navas and the sailing waters of the Helford River, a substantial, detached, stone-built 'farmhouse', providing extremely characterful 4 bedroom, 2 bath/shower room accommodation, together with a useful range of outbuildings, set in grounds of approximately 4.25 acres, including large, gently sloping paddock and beautifully stocked gardens, enjoying views over miles of surrounding unspoilt countryside.

THE PROPERTY

In our clients' ownership for some thirty years, the availability of 'Ethnevas Farm House' provides an exceptional and, currently, extremely rare opportunity to purchase a substantial country home of much character, with grounds extending to approximately four and a quarter acres or thereabouts, and with useful range of outbuildings, two of which, 'The Piggery' and 'The Outhouse' offer scope for conversion, subject to consents.

The two-storey, four bedroom accommodation comprises a magnificent double aspect drawing room with polished granite flooring, sitting room with inglenook fireplace, conservatory opening directly onto the gardens, entrance hall with cloakroom, utility room/study, and farmhouse-style kitchen with blue Aga. Upstairs, all rooms enjoy the far-reaching countryside views, with the master bedroom being particularly spacious with its own dressing room, en-suite shower room and feature spiral staircase to the drawing room below. The family bathroom enjoys the evening sun and, from the rear landing, a casement door opens onto decking which, in turn, leads directly onto the gardens.

The grounds comprise a large, gently sloping, well enclosed paddock to the north west side of the house; there is a lovely 'walled' garden to the front of the house with broad terrace ideal for entertaining, and an additional area of garden is situated across the track to the south eastern side of the house.

THE LOCATION

'Ethnevas Farm House' is situated along a private lane of approximately half a mile, over which it benefits from an unrestricted right of access, with the lane leading to just two other properties and adjacent farmland. The well served village of Constantine is approximately one and a half miles distant and provides an excellent range of day-to-day amenities, including highly regarded county primary school, doctors surgery, church, public house, sports club, cricket club, community hall and two convenience stores.

The picturesque, tree-lined, sheltered, day-sailing waters of the Helford River can be accessed from the villages of Port Navas and Gweek, both of which are approximately four miles distant. The A394, main Falmouth to Helston road is within a similar distance, with the port of Falmouth and university campus at Tremough being within an approximate twenty minute drive. In all, a wonderful location to live, close to the desirable North Helford Area of south Cornwall.
