Trowan Vean is possibly the oldest property in St Ives, dating from the mid 17th century. Originally named Trowan Manor, it is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty protected by National Trust covenants. The immediate landscape, with fields dating from the Bronze Age, is just off the north coast path west from St Ives. Trowan Vean enjoys beautiful sea views across its own privately owned fields. The hustle and bustle of St Ives, with its beautiful beaches, art galleries and restaurants; is a 5 minute drive away or 30 minute walk through the fields.
The property itself is approached via a private lane which leads to the small hamelt of Trowan which consists of a blend of high quality family homes and bijou holiday cottages within a charming rural setting yet conveniently located for access to St Ives and the coastal path. Entering through a timber gate provides access to a delightful enclosed private courtyard garden with a grassed area running along one side to a rear sun terrace ideal for alfresco dining.
Entering the home through the quaint entrance porch leads to the impressive 34ft reception room loosely split into a seating area and dining area. This room is flooded with character and charm including beamed ceilings, fireplaces with inset wood burners at both ends, marble flooring, which in-turn runs throughout the ground floor, and an abundance of quaint windows fitted with shutters overlooking the courtyard garden. A central staircase leads to the first floor accommodation whilst an adjacent passageway provides access to the kitchen located at the rear of the property.
The bespoke handmade hardwood kitchen has been beautifully designed and is complimented with marble work surfaces and modern integrated appliances. There is an inset Range Cooker with fitted extractor hood above. From this area an opening leads to the dining conservatory which is flooded with natural light from its glass ceiling and large windows and French door, which leads to the sun terrace, ideal for alfresco dining. Within the dining conservatory there is an exposed feature stone wall which only adds to the rustic feel of this area blended with modern luxury. At first floor level there are three generous bedrooms and a high quality family bathroom fitted with Carrera marble. The master bedroom suite is located at the front of the property and enjoys en suite shower room facilities. An impressive vaulted ceiling adds to the ambiance of this room whilst providing the feeling of additional space and rustic charm.
The remaining two bedrooms are again of wonderful size and are catered for by the family bathroom. All three bedrooms have their own individuality and the family bathroom is fitted with high quality fixtures. Externally, as previously mentioned there is an enclosed private garden and courtyard which provides a private area for relaxation. Set in front of the property is an enclosed 5 acre paddock laid mainly to lawn. This area is ideal for those buyers wishing to house a pony or some livestock. Within the field are the remnants of a collapsed piggery, which, subject to the necessary permissions, could be re-built.
