Facing south and overlooking its own gardens and parkland, Tregeare sits surrounded by the beautiful unspoilt countryside of North Cornwall. The 215 acre property is currently labelled as being under offer with a guide price of £4.5 million. Tregeare is an exceptional, private country estate centred around an elegant Grade II Listed Palladian style mansion surrounded by beautiful parkland and grounds with a breathtaking approach over a long private drive. Set amidst the glorious North Cornish countryside, Tregeare encapsulates all the elements of a traditional, mixed estate with further residential properties, a working farm, equestrian facilities together with considerable sporting potential. Tregeare comprises a total of 215 acres creating an estate of total privacy and seclusion. Rich in history, the first recorded owners were the Baron Family and the Grade II Listed Mansion is believed to have been built by Jasper Baron and completed in the 1790s. Numerous alterations and additions were undertaken in the mid to late C19 with an extensive rebuild after a fire in 1983. Today, following a meticulous renovation programme undertaken by the current owners under the supervision of English Heritage, Tregeare has retained a wealth of historical architectural features and is finished and appointed to an exceptional standard.
