Tremethick House, Tremethick Cross, Penzance, Cornwall, TR20 8UG
Tremethick House, Tremethick Cross, Penzance, Cornwall, TR20 8UG
Sold £203,000

A character two storey semi-detached house for modernisation and improvement with good-size gardens and grounds set in a rural location, yet only about three miles from the centre of Penzance.

The property offers potential for a variety of layouts following refurbishment, perhaps alongside an extension by virtue of the recent grant of Planning Permission. The current format is informally as a two bedroom flat and a three bedroom maisonette although Tremethick House clearly has the makings of a highly desirable, more traditional, family residence particularly if the views to Mounts Bay are maximised.

Directional Note

On the A3071 at Tremethick Cross take the road westwards towards Sancreed. Proceed for about a quarter of a mile and the property will be found on your left hand side.

Existing Accommodation

Ground Floor

Porch, lobby, inner hall, kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and bathroom.

Planning Permission has been granted by Cornwall Council under ref: PA19/08052 dated 1st November 2019 for extension of the existing dwelling and associated works, subject to conditions. A copy of the planning consent and proposed plans will be available to download from the Clive Emson website or via Cornwall Council’s website, cornwall.gov.uk.

Entrance hall, large kitchen/dining room, extensive living room, study/guest suite and a further multi-purpose room.

First Floor

Landing, master bedroom with en-suite shower-room and balcony, two further bedrooms and family bathroom.

Note: Part of the extensive living room on the ground floor and the balcony above are the extended portion of the property.


The gardens and grounds are well worthy of further formalisation to materially enhance the house. To the side there is also a covered link that provides passage from the front of the property to the garden as well as leading to the garage which has its own shower room and W.C.
