Trevurvas Barn is situated in the sought after rural hamlet of Trevurvas, approximately 1 ¼ miles from the village of Ashton which has local amenities including a pub and garage. Trevurvas Hamlet is approached over a Council maintained lane leading off the main A394 Penzance to Helston road. The hamlet contains a number of quaint, picturesque country cottages and barns.

Tresowes Hill and Tregonning Hill are close by providing lovely common land ideal for walking with superb far reaching views. From the hamlet there is a public footpath leading down to Pengersick and on to Praa Sands with its beautiful sandy beach popular with families and surfers. The property is within easy reach of many coastal and country walks including sandy beaches at Perranuthnoe and Keneggy. The village of Germoe has a primary school and Rosudgeon and Praa Sands have a garage and shop. The former market town of Helston has a good range of amenities and services including health, leisure and education, shops and supermarkets, and is well known for its traditional Flora Day Furry Dance. The harbour town of Penzance, about 9 miles to the west, has further amenities and provides regular ferry services to the Isles of  Scilly as well as a mainline railway station with services to London Paddington.


The barn is situated within grounds bounded by Cornish hedges and includes a small meadow. The barn, existing internal dimensions 26’2’’ x 15’3’’, is believed to have been built in the mid-19th Century of traditional stone random rubble construction under a corrugated sheeted roof with cut granite quoins and lintels and an earth floor. The barn has been redundant for a number of years and planning permission for residential conversion was granted in October 2017 under application number PA17/07749 – extracts from the planning permission are included in the sale particulars however copies of the full planning are available from the agents.

The permission includes for an extension to the south side to provide in all an entrance hallway with staircase to first floor, dining room, kitchen, living room and at first floor level, landing, three bedrooms, two en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. From the first floor in particular there will be far reaching views towards Pengersick, Praa Sands and into Mount’s Bay in the distance.


The barn is approached over a stone track lane with a small area of ground to the front of the barn (classified as Common Land). The barn is surrounded by agricultural land and the meadow was possibly a former orchard. There is ample space to the side for parking and the installation of a new sewage treatment plant. There is space for front and rear gardens and new Cornish hedges will need to be constructed as a condition of the planning to provide a new boundary.
