Prospidnick, Helston


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
The Old Piggery is a delightful four bedroom, detached single storey, tastefully renovated conversion. It is located in the pretty hamlet of Prospidnick, which nestles within an idyllic rural valley backing onto the Trevarno country estate. This former piggery was purchased from Trevarno and converted in the early 1990s. The property is deceptive from the front and offers spacious and well-proportioned accommodation yet with a light and airy feel unlike many older Cornish properties. The Old Piggery blends contemporary and traditional styling with many features, including exposed timber beamed ceilings within the lounge, a feature wood burner and handmade timber paneled walls. There is a timber parquet floor and character doors with double glazing set within character timber windows. The property has LPG heating, a family bathroom and an en-suite to the master bedroom. To the front of the property there is a cobbled driveway providing parking for several cars and either side of the property, there are patios and a path that leads to the rear, where the majority of the gardens can be found. The generous private, enclosed garden is a true delight with a wide selection of mature shrubs and trees and backs on to open fields. The hamlet of Prospidnick comprises a handful of individual and character residences. The hamlet is popular due to its proximity to the market town of Helston, the many restaurants in Porthleven and shopping in Penzance. Offered for sale with vacant possession and no onward chain.
