Property on The Roseland
Experience the unique beauty of the Roseland peninsula from your very own luxurious property.
The Roseland is one of the county’s most sought after areas, from Tregony (often referred to as the gateway to the Roseland) all the way to St Mawes on the edge of the peninsula – it’s not hard to see why this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty appeals to visitors and residents alike. With its many walking routes through stunning countryside and world-class sailing waters, there’s plenty to explore on the land and the sea. We discover some stunning properties on the market with Philip Martin, which show off the beauty of the Roseland and that offer buyers the chance to experience the tranquil lifestyle that makes this area so popular.
“With glorious sailing waters and the Roseland’s breath-taking countryside nearby, the Roseland couldn’t be a more tranquil place to live and visit”
First and foremost is Churchtown Mill (guide price: £1,200,000), a beautiful converted four-bedroom barn in the picturesque village of St Just in Roseland. Converted in the early 1990s, this cherished family home has been sympathetically updated throughout. The reverse level accommodation has three double bedrooms including a master en-suite and a separate family bathroom on the ground floor. The first floor has a bespoke fitted kitchen, a spacious sitting room with a contemporary fireplace and a fourth bedroom or study. Positioned just above the famous 13th century church, the property is sat within an acre of delightful subtropical gardens with views of the creek and surrounding countryside.
Next, residing in the incredibly sought after waterside village of St Mawes, is Tranters (guide price: £1,180,000). Occupying a south-facing plot, this substantial family home has fantastic potential. It’s a four-bedroom property that retains many of its 1930s character and charm, including attractive Art Deco bay windows on both floors. It also boasts beautiful views across the water from St Mawes to St Anthony Head and across Falmouth Bay to the Lizard peninsula in
Ardevora Mill (guide price: £950,000) is found tucked away at the end of a private lane deep in the heart of the Roseland and on the outskirts of the village of Philleigh. Although not isolated, the property is extremely private – a rarity in this day and age. With panoramic views over the river Fal, this detached four or five-bedroom former water mill also has a separate annexe and is an extremely attractive property.
Finally, Methers Collyn House (guide price: £1,350,000) is a large six-bedroom property full of original features and character. It commands exceptional views over the surrounding countryside and glimpses of the sea in Gerrans Bay. The house is Grade II listed with records of it dating back to the early 1700s and has land extending to 3.75 acres. It is a unique property in a very special location.
All of these properties benefit from being located in a stunning area of Cornwall. With glorious sailing waters and the Roseland’s breath-taking countryside nearby, the Roseland couldn’t be a more tranquil place to live and visit. And these properties provide you with the chance to explore everything that the rest of Cornwall has to offer, with the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan nearby, plus all the amenities that Truro has to offer, right on your doorstep!
