DESCRIPTION
Tremadart House was built at the end of the 19th Century and was then a farmhouse on land formerly owned by the Duchy of Cornwall. This fine house will be found to be exceptionally well presented and successfully blends traditional and period features to provide a comfortable family home.

The versatile layout extends to 4305 sq ft over two floors with partial double glazing and mains gas central heating.

The accommodation briefly comprises as follows – the entrance door opens into the porch and reception hall with attractive balustrade staircase rising to the first floor. The principal living rooms include a 22′ drawing room with Chesney wood burner and with a dual aspect and tall French doors opening to the west terrace, a 16′ formal dining room with French doors to the west terrace and a 20′ sitting room again with French doors and open fire. The 25′ bespoke kitchen/family room with mains gas fired Aga is an exceptional room with great care taken to create an ergonomic space for the chef whilst retaining ample room for entertaining and casual dining, the dual aspect windows provide a fine outlook over the gardens and the high ceiling only serves to enhance this fabulous room. There are the usual domestic offices and a study on the ground floor.

The two staircases enable versatility with seven double bedrooms, six of which have ensuite bath/shower rooms all presented to a quality, contemporary standard.

Prior to our clients ownership the property was successfully used as a quality, “boutique” style bed and breakfast, capitalising on the convenient and idyllic location close to the coastline of the Cornish Riviera, Tremadart House lends itself to this type of activity but equally works well as a large family home with the potential for multi-generational living.
