Tremeadows is situated at Wheal Butson in the district known as Mithian Downs, which is about 1½ miles east of the large highly sought after village of St. Agnes. The nearby hamlet of Mithian has a junior school and St. Agnes has a thriving village community and good local services and amenities including school, shops, pubs, cafes, take-aways, sports and leisure clubs etc. The main A30 trunk road providing access to the east and west of the county is easily accessible at Chiverton Cross roundabout, which also provides good access via the A390 to Threemilestone Industrial Park, Treliske Retail Park and Hospital, Truro College as well as Truro city centre (9 miles distant) with its private and state schools, extensive retail, entertainment, leisure and business facilities.


Tremeadows is situated in a delightful rural setting within ample gardens and grounds extending to approx. 0.66 of an acre providing privacy and seclusion. The property originally comprised a stone and cob cottage which has been extended with single and two storey additions providing accommodation which would benefit from some modernisation and improvement. From the first floor there are attractive far reaching views over a part dismantled stone railway viaduct and towards the North Coast.

The gardens and grounds surround the property and include a detached double garage and attached workshop together with a small paddock/meadow with separate gated entrance and suitable for a variety of hobby farming interests, horticultural uses, pets, poultry, orchard etc. Within the meadow is a dilapidated former chicken shed/store.

The double garage faces the quiet country lane providing off road parking and there is a pedestrian wrought iron gate to the side providing access via steps down to the patio, property and gardens.


To the rear of the property is a lawn garden surrounded by various mature shrubs and trees.  A concrete surfaced pathway leads around the rear of the property to a concrete paved plinth on which the central heating oil tank is situated.

Immediately to the front of the property is a large concrete paved patio area with stone steps leading up to the country road with a wrought iron pedestrian gate. Another set of concrete steps lead up to the pedestrian side entrance door into the detached double garage.

Beyond the front patio is a raised shrubbery and a large front garden laid mainly to lawn with a variety of trees and shrubs to the sides, a separate wooden gated entrance from the road and an area which is overgrown with unkempt shrubs and brambles etc.

Adjacent to the road is a Double Garage (5.91m x 5.36m) built of concrete block walls which are part stone faced to the front and cement rendered to the sides and rear. The roof is flat with a mineral felt covering, internally there is an inspection pit and there are two metal up and over vehicle entrance doors. Attached to the garage is a Workshop (5.62m x 2.85m) of the same construction with single glazed windows and pedestrian doors from the garage and out to the garden at the rear, contains a Belfast sink on a concrete blockwork stand.

Within the overgrown area is an aluminium frame Greenhouse as well as a former deep litter Poultry House built of concrete block walls but the roof has fallen in.
