This week's Packet Pad is this traditional, four-bedroom farmhouse in the rural location of Gwennap on the outskirts of Redruth.


This substantial, traditionally built four-bedroom detached farmhouse is set in its own grounds backing onto fields and enjoys a sunny sheltered location with no near neighbours, making this the ideal location for a growing family that value their privacy and seek a quiet rural lifestyle.

The house has been extended and improved with style, imagination and great attention to detail whilst retaining the undoubted character and charm. Packed with features including a wealth of natural woodwork, period open fireplaces in both reception rooms, a fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a Rayburn range as its centrepiece, double glazed windows, doors, conservatory and rear reception porch, tessellated flooring in the reception hall.

The generous accommodation on the ground floor includes a large conservatory spanning the front of the house, reception hall, two reception rooms, a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, luxury shower room/wc. a boot room with dark room and a rear reception porch. The first floor has a spacious landing, four bedrooms and a well appointed family bathroom.

Outside, the property is approached over a long sweeping driveway which passes two granite buildings, ripe for renovation.

A large parking area extends to a gravelled driveway and an attached garage alongside the house. Beautiful mature gardens surround the house with lawns, secluded seating areas along with terraces and patios that enjoy plenty of sunshine throughout the day.


Set between the highly regarded villages of Ponsanooth and Lanner which both have excellent local facilities to meet your every needs and also within easy driving distance to Truro and the surrounding towns of Penryn, Falmouth, Redruth and Helston.
