Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A particularly rare, attractive, detached, late Victorian house, situated within this ever-popular and extremely well served village, just yards from Carwinion Lane which leads to the nearby northern shoreline of the beautiful Helford River, with highly characterful and versatile 3/4 bedroom accommodation, together with a 'self-contained' ground floor annexe, ideal for a dependent relative or source of letting income, all set within surrounding, level and well enclosed gardens with garage, office and ample additional parking.


Believed to be of late Victorian origin, 'Trevean' is a substantial, detached, individual house with attractive mellow stone elevations, situated within this highly sought-after village, whose excellent day-to-day amenities are all within easy walking distance.

Surrounding, level, well enclosed and attractively stocked gardens provide a high degree of shelter, privacy and sunshine, together with various sitting-out areas and an attractive outlook from many rooms. Ample driveway parking for three/four vehicles is provided in addition to a detached block-built garage, to the rear of which there is a useful outside office, adjacent to which a pathway provides independent external access to the annexe, which also benefits from its own private garden area.

The highly versatile accommodation, which benefits from oil fired central heating, is currently arranged to provide a home plus income with three/four bedrooms to the main accommodation, supplemented by the one bedroom annexe which, alternatively, is ideal for those with a dependent relative, or for re-inclusion into the main accommodation if preferred.

Throughout, the property offers an abundance of charm, character and quality features and for those seeking a detached family home, in one of the area's most sought-after locations, we strongly recommend an early viewing appointment is arranged.


'Trevean' is situated on the eastern side of village, with nearby walks and footpaths leading to the South West Coast Path and the shoreline of the Helford River. Consequently, there are beautiful walks 'on the doorstep' to Grebe Beach, Durgan, Helford Passage and Ferry Boat Inn in one direction, and Mawnan Church, Rosemullion Head and Maenporth Beach in the other. The village itself has for many decades been recognised as one of the most sought-after destinations in south Cornwall, with picturesque Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens nearby, and excellent day-to-day amenities including a thatched public house, The Red Lion Inn, doctors surgery, convenience stores, restaurant, cafe, hairdressers, craft stores and bus service to Falmouth, approximately four miles distant.
