The brief

Mr & Mrs T. and their family were able to fulfil a lifetime dream and move from Humberside to West Cornwall following the sale of his share in a building construction company. Initially the search was centred upon Perranuthnoe a small coastal village where they had enjoyed family holidays for almost fifteen years. However because of limited stock, with my suggestion the search area was extended to include the area around Helston, but close to the coastal footpath so that my client could purse his joy of running.

  • Restored Period Property

  • 2 - 3 Acres of Land
    To provide a large garden space for the family to enjoy
  • Separate Studio
    As a professional artist, Mrs. T requires a private space to complete her work
  • Close to Coastal Footpath
    This would enable the client to pursue his hobby of running

How we did it

After viewing a number of period properties I managed to find an elegant detached Georgian farm house close to Looe Pool with acreage. The selling agent confided that the vendor had already purchased another property so he was keen to sell and, after negotiation and a reduction in price of £60,000, a sale was agreed within budget. Since occupation my client has demolished and built a studio on the footprint of the former garage and both teenage girls are happily settled into their new school.
