Minehouse Farm represents an extremely rare opportunity to purchase one of Cornwall’s most exclusive properties.  This immaculately presented three bedroom detached house is set in approximately 18 acres in an idyllic setting with some stunning, unique features.

Minehouse Farm really does need to be seen to fully appreciate what it has to offer. The images and brochure only go part of the way to capture what is a truly remarkable property. Nestled in the idyllic and popular village of Herodsfoot, the property was constructed in the early 1840s and was originally the Count House of Herodsfoot Mine.

The 18 acres consists of mature woodland, grassland, manicured gardens, orchard and pond, providing a thriving haven for a wealth of stunning wildlife, places to explore, walks and relaxation.

The jewel in the crown is undoubtedly the mineral mine, positioned within the grounds of the property, and including the original crusher house and chimney. The mine buildings have survived in remarkably good condition due to its sheltered valley environment and stability works carried out in the last decade. The mine is a world famous site for two antimony minerals, Bournonite and Tetrahedrite, the former being found as cog wheels. Better specimens have never been found in the world to this day. The mine remains popular with mining and mineral enthusiasts and potentially still contains many covered minerals.

The property has been extremely well maintained by the current vendors and is set across two floors. The spacious ground floor provides space for dining and entertainment, whilst the first floor boasts three good sized bedrooms, including one en-suite, and a separate bathroom.

The property is approached via a private driveway and also boasts a range of outbuildings including a range of detached buildings, block-built outbuilding, car port and double fronted barn.

Kivells Area Manager, Sam Turner, adds, “Minehouse Farm represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a truly remarkable and unique property that is extremely rare to the market. Kivells are excited to be marketing such a wonderful property.”
