This old stone mill building has been sympathetically converted into a fine residence with inverted accommodation taking maximum advantage of the large open plan first floor vaulted living space. Whilst partly attached to a neighbouring barn by a small section of adjoining original gable wall, the property is approached by a private gated gravel drive and feels fully detached and private from the small selection of hamlet neighbours. The house boasts a delightful well stocked and private country garden on various levels designed around a large leat wall with different garden areas, including a small orchard and a large kitchen garden section well suited to the keen gardener. The annexe building sits detached in the grounds, potentially with a separate road access and could be used for a variety of purposes, including a residential annexe or ancillary/work accommodation for the main house.

Impressive First Floor Open Plan Living Space - This large impressive reception room occupies the entire first floor of the mill building with original door and slate steps leading down to the ground floor parking area. The room features original painted stone walls, original Mill flooring and large scale vaulted timber ceilings throughout. Multiple windows. The accommodation comprises an open dining area capable of accommodating a large family dining table and a cosy but large lounge section with a high output woodburner next to a partially divided open plan kitchen.

Detached Annexe - Situated in a tucked away section of the garden, this detached single storey stone and brick outbuilding has been used for a number of purposes over the Years, but now comprises annexe accommodation including a large bed/sitting room, a small kitchen and a shower room all with independently controlled radiated central heating (off the main boiler) and a range of double glazed doors opening onto a patio and garden. Adjacent to the residential accommodation is a double height garden store/workshop complete with sturdy shelving for storage and garden machinery. The plot has a further established gated vehicular entrance off the road which could be used as an independent parking area and access for the annexe if required.

Parking And Drive - Trewassick Mill is approached from the country land via an owned gravelled section of driveway that then leads immediately through private gates via a long gravel drive to a gravel parking area with a parking pergola for 2 cars. Bore hole structure (now not used but considered functional if required subject to the installation of a new pump, excellent for garden water). New external floor mounted oil boiler providing the central heating and hot water throughout. Ground floor entrance door and slate steps to upper floor accommodation. Gate to gardens.

Gardens - The lower rear garden is visible from the house over a large open log storage area and sits amongst a wooded backdrop with a central lawn and mature surrounding boundary features. A massive "leat wall" separates the garden from the parking area with steps up to a gravelled lofted pathway that used to feed water from the higher land directly onto the original mill wheel and is now a garden feature with original stone and granite features and steps. From the lower garden a pathway leads to a mid-level secluded orchard garden sat directly in front of the detached stone annexe building and with the leat wall as a backdrop. Further steps wind up through the wooded garden to the highest point of the garden with a separate vehicular access off the road, a further parking area/hardstanding and a large vegetable/fruit garden with accessible beds, composting facility, 2 greenhouses and a wendy house/shed. This upper section of land borders open farmland.

Directions - Heading from Newquay towards Quintrell Downs, turn left at the Nansledan roundabout on to the A3059 toward St Columb Major. After a few hundred yards on the way down the hill, take a right hand turn on the corner signposted Colan. Follow this country road for just under ? a mile until you come to a collection of stone buildings and former barns and you are at Trewassick. Trewassick Mill can be found on the right hand side with a gated gravel drive marked Trewassick Mill.

Tenure - Freehold

Services - Mains water and electricity. Private drainage on site. Large oil storage tank for the boiler. Bottled LPG for cooker. N.B The water supply to the hamlet is fed from the mains but the individual houses all run off private sub meters and contribute their calculated metered proportion of the total hamlet bill.
