Located in a favoured area on the edge of South Tehidy and believed to date from the 1820’s, this Georgian style detached gentleman’s residence was formerly part of The Basset Estate.

There is a home office with superfast fibre optic broadband installed which could be a fifth bedroom if desired, a well appointed kitchen, utility and cloakroom.
