Property of the Day: Trenoweth House, Crowan, Cornwall

A Grade II-listed former vicarage in the heart of the Cornish countryside

THE PROPERTY: This six-bedroom Gothic-style property sits in three and a half acres of private land. Included in the estate are three cottages: the larger Coach House, and the studio-style Gardener’s Cottage and Woodsman’s cottage. The grounds include a formal planted garden, a large walled garden with a stone outbuilding. There is also a swimming pond, fed by a tributary of the Hayle River, with an island and a jetty. 

THE LOCATION: Situated between the north and south coasts of Cornwall, Trenoweth House enjoys an accessible location within a 30 minutes’ drive of several charming beachside locations including St Ives, Marazion and Porthleven. The closest villages are Praze and Leedstown, but the larger towns of Helstone, Camborne and Hayle are also nearby. 

THE INTERIOR: The interior of the main house boasts impressive historic features including period fireplaces, mullioned windows, granite stone floors and exposed stone walls (below). The kitchen (bottom) and bathrooms are contemporary and all rooms are spacious. The Coach House has an open-plan kitchen/dining/living space with raw brickwork, while the second floor is fully wood-lined.  The Gardener’s Cottage and Woodsman’s Cottage are both fully wood-lined studios with an open-plan kitchen/living/bedroom space and a further shower room.

WHY WE LOVE IT: The contrast between old and new is striking in Trenoweth House. From the ultra-contemporary, glass-roofed kitchen to the gorgeous baronial-style banqueting hall, this property is far from monotonous.
