This unique Grade II Listed home is steeped in antiquity and is arguably the most historic building in the parish of Feock. Believed to be listed in the Doomsday Book of 1086, the house was in the same ownership between 1350and 1921. It was purchased by the vendors in 2002 who have lovingly and sympathetically resored it over 3 years to achieve a spacious home of great character combined with all the comforts demanded of modern living. The garden is a delight of cottage style with glorious views towards the River Fall and Carrick Roads being a few minutes walk from Pill creek, Loe Beach and The National Trust estate of Trelissick with its glorious gardens and riverside walks.

Additional Seller's Comments
Trevilla is the quiet part of Feock, which is one of the highly sought after waterside village of Cornwall, with access to deep, sheltered Fal estuary, it is mid-way between Falmouth and Truro with easy access to all parts of the County and futher afield.
From Vine Cottage there are is a myriad of footpaths and quiet lanes with spectacular views. Access to watersports and great sailing is within approxamate 5 mins of the house.
You enter the property through a covered porch with aged oak door into a hallway. From here there is a shower room and WC and utility room. To the Right hand side of the hallway is the kitchen breakfast room with a mix of oak and painted beams and a range of base and high level cupboards with Sandyford Lady stove. (Aga type cooker which also powers central heating). There is a door to a rear courtyard and garden, and another to a traditional larder. Off the kitchen are double French windows to a South West facing outdoor dining area and garden, ideal for barbeques.
The living room is over 27' long with quadruple aspect for good light all day. A feature fireplace is at one end and the main, grand fireplace at the other end, with log burner, and the room has views of the Carrick Roads. A traditional 17th century, bespoke oak screen divides the sitting room from the kitchen . A simple oak staircase rises to a gallery landing and underneath it there is a doorway through to a room currently used as a study, but could be double bedroom 4 or a formal dining room.
From the gallery landing doors lead to the master bedroom and to the third bedroom. Both are double aspect and have good views of the Fall and Carrick Roads. The master bedroom has exposed timber beams, an en-suite shower room and dressing room. Opposite the master bedroom is the vaulted ceiling third bedroom which is of a good size. Along the landing is a family bathroom with white fitted suite.
The second bedroom is a delightful room with lots of exposed timber beams, a nook seating area over the porch and a concealed door to a Jack and Jill en-suite shower room that it shares with the drawing room. It faces west and enjoys good evening sun. There is a quaint passageway which leads through to the drawing room and a walk in linen cupboard .
Last but not by any means least is the drawing room 20' by 20', with a high vaulted ceiling, mezzanine storage area and dramatic beamed ceiling. Book shelving lines the garden wall and central on that wall is a glass door out to the higher level of garden. A large, feature eyebrow window overlooks the parking area and faces west for great evening sunlight. With the Velux to the east as well, there is an abundance of natural light throughout the room.
Vine Cottage is remarkably roomy, light and airy for a home of this age and with the garden wrapping around it has views of the sea or it's own garden from every window.
The gardens are intriguing and extensive, wrapping around the house and heavily planted in traditional cottage style, in keeping with this home. It is a garden of views and vistas, privacy and all year colour.
There is a grand rockery overlooking the off road parking, which is suitable for two or three cars outside the double garage and a gravel path
which leads past shrub beds to the front porch . As mentioned in the description there is an outside dining area, screened from the road by mature planting.
South Side - off the living room and study
Immediately off the living room is a large graveled seating area and off the study is a lawned seating area. Away from those are planted beds and
another, higher level of lawn and planting including mature palm and fig tree, Wisteria and Giant Sedums. To one side of this area is the old driveway which provides parking for several cars or boats.
Off the kitchen courtyard the path sweeps past the bespoke greenhouse and divides into two paths. The higher climbs past lavender attracting multitudes of butterflies in the summer months and a dry rockery full of thyme, oregano and other rock plants up to the top lawn. The lower path sweeps past roses, hydrangeas, apples and further mature palm trees to the drawing room door from where steps climb to the best sea views from the top lawn.
At every turn there are vistas, colour all year and lots of privacy.
Frequently Asked Questions About Thatch:
What is it like to live under?
Quiet. Provides good heat and sound insulation alike. We often sleep through the Cornish storms when everyone else is talking about them and the aftermath! There are no gutters and downpipes to maintain and the large overhang means that first floor windows can be left open in the rain.
Are thatched roofs rare in Cornwall?
Not at all. There are fourteen in Feock and quite a few along the south coastal areas as well as inland. Far less likely in the north of Cornwall as there are fewer creeks which historically, was where all the reed was grown.
The price includes a new thatch. The current vendors have booked this to be carried out in March - weather dependant.
