Occupying a Sylvan setting on this exclusive country estate, is this detached five bedroom property presented in excellent order throughout and set within its own grounds of approximately 2.4 acres of formal gardens and woodland.

Originally constructed in 1912 as a squash court to the main estate, Basset House was renovated in 1997 as part of the redevelopment of the forty two acre former Basset Estate. Presented to the highest order throughout, this family home offers versatile accommodation within a private setting giving total privacy without isolation. There are five bedrooms (two of which benefit from en-suite facilities), a triple aspect lounge, dining room with an outlook across lawned gardens and a kitchen/breakfast room which enjoys a dual aspect and was remodelled in 2011 with Italian style units and incorporates integrated cda appliances. To the rear of the house is a Victorian style conservatory which benefits from views over the formal lawned gardens and woodland beyond. The property is double glazed and propane gas heating is privately metered from the main estates supply. Situated within an environmentally friendly location, in addition to the extensive estate woodland, the property sits in grounds approaching 2.4 acres of which 1.7 acres is private woodland. Complementing the environmental approach, solar panels were installed in 2015 which benefit from the residue of a 20 year contract. The property is approached via a pillared entrance with gravelled driveway and parking, there is a lawned garden with mature shrubs to the boundaries with access to a double garage. The rear garden is mainly lawned with mature shrubs and features a paved patio with access on to the aforementioned private woodland.

The Tehidy Park Estate is set in forty two acres of both formal gardens and woodland and includes a walled Victorian garden and sunken garden all of which offer a high degree of privacy and security for the exclusive use of residents. The estate adjoins both Tehidy Golf Course and a country park which is recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty. Within a short distance one will find the North Cornish Coast and the A30 (the principal route to and from Cornwall) and main line Railway Stations will be found at either Camborne or Redruth. The Cathedral City of Truro is within fourteen miles and is the county’s commercial, educational and retail centre. Cornwall Airport at Newquay is 25 miles distant and offers flights to London Gatwick and a variety of European destinations.
