Penrose FarmhouseA beautiful country house just a short walk from the beach with extensive private grounds, off-road parking and a tennis court, sleeping up to 10 lucky guests in comfort.
Located just ¾ mile from the sandy cove at Maenporth, Penrose Farmhouse enjoys wonderful countryside views in a tranquil setting and is conveniently located between Falmouth and the Helford River.
Updated this year to create a luxury home perfect for large family get-togethers or groups of friends in any season, and ideally placed for exploring all that this wonderful part of Cornwall has to offer.
The welcoming hallway leads into the beautiful kitchen complete with AGA and original granite floor and boasting a dishwasher, microwave combi oven, American style fridge freezer and even a pantry. The kitchen table here provides informal dining or simply a place to relax with a cup of tea. The kitchen door leads out onto the terrace to enjoy the sun and the wonderful view across the valley. Opposite is a useful boot room with a door to a south-facing patio with outdoor shower – perfect for a sandy return from the beach.
The drawing room has glorious views of the immaculate grounds and has a large corner sofa in front of the original open fire. Entertainment is provided from the flat screen TV and Sky HD (which is also accessible in the snug). Across the hall is the impressive dining room with its high ceiling, slate floor and wood-burning stove.
A door from the dining room leads into the snug with huge flat screen TV with Playstation4 and plenty of games – the ideal haven for children. The large utility room with washing machine and dryer is also located off this room.
Large comfy beds are a feature of each of the first floor bedrooms decorated in calming tones with many original features such as fireplaces retained. The master bedroom has a super-king bed with plenty of closet space and views of the garden, steps lead down to the ensuite shower room with walk-in shower, WC and basin.
There are three further bedrooms on this floor – a lovely light room with super-king bed, a pretty room complete with double bed, and a further bedroom with views across the valley which contains a king-sized bed and a separate adjoining room – perfect for those with lots of luggage or bringing a travel cot!
The luxury continues with the family bathroom beautifully finished with walk-in shower, bath, basin and WC.
The final bedroom with a double bed is located at the far end of the house and can be reached by a second staircase leading from the snug or from bedroom 2 via the ensuite bathroom with bath, WC and basin.
The gardens are a particular feature of Penrose Farmhouse with various seating areas to relax including a swing and a garden house with sofa overlooking the tennis court. The sunny patios are perfect for dining alfresco or enjoying a BBQ in fine weather.
For the energetic there are plenty of walks directly from the door (Maenporth beach is just a short walk away) while water sports such as stand-up paddle-boarding and kayaking are available at nearby Swanpool Beach. Or why not simply stay at home and enjoy the international size tennis court in the grounds of the house?
Penrose Farmhouse is a superb family home in a quiet secluded location yet with everything on your doorstep – Falmouth Golf Club is just one mile away (the Pitch and Putt even closer!), three fabulous beaches are a stone’s throw away, and Falmouth town centre is just a seven minute drive.
