In the process of being renovated, with work to be completed, providing an ideal opportunity for builders and/or purchasers looking for a country house which they can finish, alter and improve to their own specification and satisfaction, subject to any appropriate planning permission and consents etc.



Treleggo Farm is approximately ½ a mile from the picturesque and sought after village of Godolphin Cross, and within easy driving distance of the historic harbour town of Hayle (7 miles) and the ancient market town of Helston (5 miles). The property is within easy reach of spectacular stretches of the South Cornwall coast, the attractive fishing village of Porthleven (5 miles) and the beaches at Praa Sands (5 miles) and Kenneggy Sands (6 miles).

The B3302 is approximately ¾ of a mile away and gives easy access to both Hayle and Helston. There are primary schools at Leedstown, Crowntown, Godolphin Cross and Breage. The air station at RNAS Culdrose is 6 miles distant. The port of Falmouth with its excellent maritime facilities and Penryn, home to the University Campus at Tremough, are both within half an hour's drive.

Penzance is about 10 miles distant and provides a regular ferry service to the Isles of Scilly. The City of Truro, the administration centre for Cornwall with its superb range of shops, leisure, health and education facilities, business and banking etc is about 20 miles away.

There are excellent walks to be enjoyed in the area including Tregonning and Godolphin Hills from which there are outstanding views over miles of countryside to both coasts.


Owned by our client for many years, the property has been the subject of major renovation works but is being sold as an incomplete project with modernisation and improvement works outstanding, allowing the successful purchaser every opportunity of completing the work to their own satisfaction and specification, subject to planning permission.

Originally a four bedroom farmhouse with two/three reception rooms, the interior of the property is basically a "blank canvas" and requires finishing off to a high standard with modern conveniences to compliment the quality and look of the traditional stone building.

The garden is in the main to the front of the house and is level bordered by Cornish hedges and trees and includes a 3.84kW array of solar panels, included in the sale, installed at the 43.3p Feed-in-Tariff rate in 2012.

There are two former outbuildings to the rear of the house ideal for conversion into garaging, car port, workshop or for storage etc.

The accommodation originally comprised four bedrooms, however the current works provide for three bedrooms with the master bedroom having a large en-suite bathroom, together with a family bathroom/wc off the landing. On the ground floor there would be a large triple aspect sitting room and a similar large kitchen and dining room with views across the garden. Both these rooms have attractive bay windows to the front elevation.
