An elegant and quite stunning Grade II listed former vicarage with separate three bedroom coach house and annexe/studio set in beautiful landscaped gardens. Five double bedrooms, all en suite, three principal reception rooms, garden room, kitchen/breakfast room, boot room, study, cellar rooms incorporating gym/wine store/boiler room.
Penhallow Manor is an exquisite example of a Grade II listed former vicarage, which was built in 1842. The well proportioned and adaptable accommodation has high ceilings and large windows which give the house a feeling of space and light. In addition, there is a self contained Coach House which at present is used for holiday letting and a separate annexe/studio, which is unused, but has the potential for additional guest or studio/offices. All are set in beautiful established gardens and grounds of approximately ¾ of an acre which is approached from the drive flanked by mature shrubs,which winds up to the main house which itself is constructed of stone with painted rendered elevations under an attractive slated roof with deep overhanging eaves. The house has been sensitively restored by its present owners,with meticulous attention given to every detail throughout. The striking bathroom suites, traditional bespoke kitchen, original slate and wooden floors, fireplaces, attractive cast iron radiators, wooden panelling, shutters and sash windows with original glass are only some of the features that add to the enormous charm and character of Penhallow. The principal reception rooms all feature marble fireplaces, decorative cornices, and enjoy pleasant outlooks over the grounds and surrounding countryside. There have been religious settlements on the site since early medieval times and probably earlier as evidenced by the 6C granite cross now situated in the gardens and the 17th Century arch in the walls to the NorthWest of the Manor. Daphne du Maurier, a visitor to the house, featured it in her famous book 'Jamaica Inn' as the home of the notorious Francis Davey,Vicar of Altarnun. In all, a most elegant gentleman’s residence with a perfect balance of old and new, creating a most comfortable and charming large family home.
Penhallow Manor sits proudly on the outskirts of the pretty village of Altarnun adjacent to the Church.The village has been three times winner of the tidy village trophy in the Britain in Bloom competition as well as being judged as the best kept village in Cornwall and offers a number of amenities including well stocked general store, two public houses and primary school.Bodmin Moor is close at hand and provides excellent equestrian facilities and other outdoor pursuits and the North Cornish Coast is within good proximity with access to a number of pretty coastal villages including Boscastle, Crackington Haven and Port Isaac.
