Full Details

The Property
Little Trolvis Farm is thought never to have come to the open market. It has been in the current family’s ownership for more than 50 years prior to which it was a tenanted farm. Leading off the main road over a long driveway, it comprises a south facing two bedroom, two reception traditional detached cottage which has been updated with double glazing, oil-fired central heating, refitted kitchen and bathroom and a re-tiled roof.

A full range of outbuildings includes three traditional single storey stone barns (totalling 114 sqm, and four large modern barns (two with open front bays) providing another 273 sqm of cover. There is a large illuminated yard, turning and parking area behind the cottage with private lane for access to the land.

The land is made up of three well-enclosed grass fields all with a warm and sunny southerly aspect.

The Situation
The hamlet of Longdowns straddles the A394, less than 3 miles to the west on Penryn. A local filling station/shop, together with the nearby Rame Post Office, cater for most many daily requirements whilst the Asda superstore is just under 2 miles away. This very convenient setting on the Truro/Falmouth/Helston road means access to the historic market town of Helston couldn’t be easier, approximately 8 miles to the south-west. The port of Penryn, once renowned for boat building and exporting granite around the world, is today better known for the Tremough campus, part of both the University of Exeter and University College Falmouth. Falmouth itself is another 2 miles along the road. This internationally renowned harbour port is a vibrant town, full of vitality backed up with a rich, cultural past. Today it supports a whole host of schooling, shopping, commercial, leisure and health facilities and has a rail link with the main Paddington/Penzance line in Truro. Truro, the County town of Cornwall, is the commercial and administrative hub for much for Cornwall. As expected, it boasts a comprehensive range of private and state schooling, a weekly livestock market, private and NHS hospitals, and of course at its heart, the magnificent Cathedral.
