Full Details

The Property
A former poultry farm extending to almost 5 acres, featuring a classic five bedroom, two reception detached period house in need of general refurbishment, together with a range of buildings with planning consent for a 4 bedroom detached house, a 3 bedroom detached house, two 4 bedroom detached homes and a cluster of five new dwellings. Each of these exclusive homes will be stylish and spacious, set within generous plots looking towards countryside. In addition, there are four other large storage barns, one of which is relatively new and two in need of repair.

Crowan is a small, largely unspoilt, parish and hamlet, centred on the pretty church of Saint Crewenna where the tower is said to date back to the 15th Century. In the 18th and 19th Century Crowan was largely a farming and mining community but in more recent time it has become home to people working in the larger nearby towns of Camborne, Redruth, Hayle, Helston and Penzance. All of these towns can be found within an easily commutable 10 mile radius meaning an extensive array of shopping, commercial, schooling and health facilities are all close to hand. For daily requirements the village of Praze-an-Beeble is less that two miles away, where there is a general store/Post Office, Bakery, the popular St Albans Arms pub and a doctors’ surgery. There is a primary school within Praze-an-Beeble and another at Leedstown. The location is well placed for access to both the north and south coasts, whilst the City of Truro, Cornwall’s centre of administration, leisure, health and retail, lies 20 miles to the north-east.

Dixcarte House
A substantial period home in need of general repair and refurbishment featuring at ground floor: two reception rooms, kitchen, conservatory, large utility room with shower room and wc and a separate purpose built office. At first floor: five bedrooms, bathroom, wc and a large loft room in the attic. The house retains many character features including a very impressive staircase and has the benefit of oil-fired central heating. The total floor area extends to in excess of 2,600sqft.

To one side of the house there is a level enclosed garden together with a detached double garage/workshop.
