Enjoy perfect seclusion in a hidden valley
If you'd love to escape from the world into a magical space of your own, then Trelease Mill on the Lizard Peninsula could be the house of your dreams.
Set in a quiet and secluded valley with no near neighbours and no other houses in sight, this is Cornwall at its very best. It is part of one of the finest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the UK
The climate here is mild and the area is renowned for its beautiful gardens. Fifteen of Britain's rarest plants flourish on the Lizard thanks to the Gulf Stream.
Trelease Mill is a former double-grist mill and Dower House recorded from as early as 1260. However, the owners have transformed it to create an elegant home where the soft Cornish light streams through and offers the best of modern living.

There are large mature gardens as well as woodland, which is richly strewn with primroses and bluebells in the springtime and is a haven for flora and fauna.
The western boundary is a stream and a spring-fed oval swimming pool with its own pool house, complete with shower, wc, kitchenette and changing room.
After parking your car in the double carport or double garage, which both provide direct access to the house, you can discover the delights of the house itself. A large garden room is the first surprise where you can enjoy outdoor living indoors! Full-height glass doors and windows on two sides overlook the garden and being right next to the kitchen with its traditional AGA, makes a special space for year-round entertaining.
The spacious drawing room with its inglenook fireplace offers a more traditional environment. You can still envisage the previous owner Godfrey Tearle who played Professor Jordan in Hitchcock's 39 Steps in 1935 relaxing here. And the next owners stayed for 60 years so Trelease Mill comes as a cherished, fascinating and historic home. There are two snug/study rooms on this floor.
Upstairs is a winter sitting room with vaulted ceilings including a modern log burner. With views over the garden, the huge master bedroom suite has bathroom.
The house has a further five bedrooms of which three are en suite. The studio room with a vaulted ceiling, is reached via a private outside staircase.
One of the two stone outbuildings behind the house has a pretty inglenook fireplace.
Trelease Mill, in the parish of St Keverne, is marketed by Knight Frank (01392 423111) with a guide price of £850,000.
