General Comments - Trejonan is a fabulous detached Grade II listed house that is thought to have been built in 1840 and located in a lovely rural setting on the outskirts of Gorran Churchtown. The cottage is very attractive with mellow stone elevations and traditional small paned windows with a wealth of period features inside including exposed beams, slate flagged flooring as well as modern additions including oil fired central heating. Interestingly the property was originally two dwellings and was amalgamated into one many years ago and extended substantially in more recent times. The gardens are a sheer delight and extend to half an acre or thereabouts and are a feature of the property with large lawns and many interesting shrubs and plants. There is a very useful outbuilding providing two garages and workshop space. A driveway provides parking for two cars and opens into the rear where there is further parking and ample space for a boat or caravan. There are four bedrooms, large fitted kitchen with Heritage range, sitting room, dining room, large conservatory, cloakroom and bathroom. An internal viewing is essential.

Location - The property lies just over a mile from the village of Gorran Churchtown, where there is an excellent primary school and the larger harbourside communities of Gorran Haven and Mevagissey are both less than two miles respectively. Trejonan is within walking distance of Porth Luney Beach, the south Cornish coast, The Barley Sheaf public house and is within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These communities afford a variety of local facilities for daily needs whilst St. Austell, home to the Eden project, lies about seven miles to the east and the city of Truro with its Cathedral and fine shopping centre is about fourteen miles (less than half an hours driving distance). The Lost Gardens Of Heligan and Lobbs farm shop are within a short drive.
