In more detail...



Polanguy is situated approximately 1½ miles to the north of the Creekside village of Gweek in attractive open farmland and conveniently located for easy access to the nearby village and amenities of the popular village of Constantine which has a thriving community and many clubs, sports and activities, well regarded Primary School, playing fields, social clubs, Spar shop, village and Post Office stores with off licence, pub, health centre, hairdressers, Church, Tolman art centre/local museum etc. The smaller village of Gweek has a pub and Premier Store and provides easy access to the picturesque wooded creeks and excellent sailing waters of the Helford River and is home to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.

The ancient market town of Helston is about 5 miles away and is home to RNAS Culdrose and holds the famous annual Flora Day and Furry Dance. Helston has a good range of health and education, shops and supermarkets, sports clubs, business and leisure facilities and services etc. Penryn, home to the Combined University of Cornwall Campus at Tremough, and the harbour town of Falmouth are within easy commuting distance. The City of Truro is about 14 miles away and is the administration centre for Cornwall with excellent retail, health, education, business and leisure facilities and services including mainline railway station with direct link to London Paddington.


Polanguy comprises a privately situated traditional Cornish smallholding with a derelict and dilapidated 17th Century Grade II listed farmhouse requiring complete renovation including roof and windows etc. There is a very useful and attractive range of stone barns formerly used as livestock housing or piggeries etc. There is also a range of modern construction buildings inc. cows houses, pole frame barn, stable block, large cattle shed with adjoining silage pit and midden area. The whole property sits in over 4½ acres including meadows and mowhay to the rear of the buildings. The property has a private tree lined stone entrance lane/track off the Council maintained road leading from Edgecumbe on the A394 to the village of Gweek at the head of the Helford River.

The smallholding is situated amongst good arable and productive agricultural land. Polanguy was historically part of the Manor of Tucoyse Estate and is accessed over a stone track which is narrow in places and would be improved by widening and levelling/laying a hardcore surface. The original medieval settlement on the site was known as Pellanguy dated 1284.

The sale of Polanguy is a superb opportunity to acquire a serious renovation project with what could be a stunning Grade II Listed Farmhouse dating back to the 17th Century with two courtyards of stone barns with potential for conversion and a range of modern buildings ideal for livestock, equestrian use or hobby farming etc. The whole property now requires complete renovation but offers huge potential and is an un-spoilt blank canvas in its current state.

The Grade II listed farmhouse is "L" shaped and mainly of 17th Century construction with an early to mid 19th Century extension, mainly granite rubble with square granite dressings and feature chimneystacks etc. The majority of the roof and floors have collapsed and the building is in a dangerous precarious state and is not to be entered. To the rear of the farmhouse is the original garden which is now overgrown, with a former orchard area to the front.
