The Counting House is a beautiful stone property set in a commanding position overlooking its substantial grounds including an established woodland and stream. Constructed in the early 20th Century, its southwest facing aspect floods the generous reception rooms with natural light, with French doors leading out to a large sunny wraparound terrace. The main entrance hall leads to two ground floor double bedrooms and bathrooms, plus a laundry room. A third ensuite bedroom is set upstairs with a home office/5th bedroom located on the opposite landing. A large well-proportioned kitchen and breakfast room with a cosy AGA and beamed ceiling, leads to a useful boot room, utility room and W.C. A separate one-bedroom studio apartment is accessed via external stone steps.

Ground Floor: Entrance Hall with tiled floors | Laundry room | Family bathroom | Double Bedroom with built in storage | Principal ensuite bedroom with built-in cupboard and French doors | Dining room with vaulted ceiling, tiled floor and wood burner, with French doors out to the terrace | Storage cupboard | Kitchen with beamed ceiling and double AGA leading to Utility room and WC | Sizeable dual aspect drawing room with wood-burning stove and French doors out to the terrace with steps down to the garden.

First Floor: Twin galleried staircases off the dining room rise up to a study (or 5th bedroom) with storage on one side, and a double ensuite bedroom off the opposite landing.

Apartment: External stone steps lead up to a self-contained flat with sloping ceilings. This versatile space is brightly lit by Velux windows, with eaves storage and fitted cupboards and connects through to a double bedroom with en suite beyond.

The Cottage: A charming clematis-clad two-bedroom stone cottage sits separately to the main house. With a comfortable sitting room, a small kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor, two double bedrooms with sloping ceilings, are set on the first floor. The property requires modernisation but would suit as ancillary accommodation or as a holiday let cottage.

The hamlet of Trelill is situated in a beautiful and unspoilt area of North Cornwall between the wild and unspoilt playground of Bodmin Moor to the east and the beautiful Camel Estuary to the west. Trelill itself lies on the north Coast of Cornwall with the nearest villages being St Kew and St Teath, which both benefit from a village pub, shop, village green and primary schools. Most everyday shopping requirements can be met in Wadebridge, which is just over 4 miles distant and hosts several colourful and vibrant independent shops. Keen cyclists can pick up a number of cycle loops including the Camel Trail. There are many beautiful beaches in the local area including Port Isaac, Daymer Bay, Polzeath and an active sailing club at Rock where conditions are ideal for water sports as diverse as water-skiing and windsurfing. The renowned St. Enodoc golf club offers two challenging 18-hole courses, and there are wonderful walks over coastal and inland routes. The calm waters of Daymer Bay are ideal for young families while keen surfers should head over to Polzeath. Good food surrounds you with The St Kew Inn, The Red Lion as well as The Mariners pub in Rock, Nathan Outlaw's restaurants in Port Isaac and the local St Mabyn pub serving an amazing range of food and drinks.

At the entrance to the property are several outhouses, including: a closed barn for storing gardening machinery, vehicles, or boats, a wood store with a water supply and a concrete piggery (without a roof), which would make additional useful storage.

The driveway leads up through the grounds past two enclosed meadows and up to the main house with driveway parking for several vehicles, a separate cottage and an open fronted oak framed double garage with a patio at the side. The lawned areas are well screened by hedging, affording the house and cottage additional privacy. To the rear of the cottage and the house through an archway, lies an orchard, giving views over the valley.

Directly to the front of the property a generous raised patio terrace wraps around the house with twin steps leading down to the front lawns. Another rear patio is accessed from the bedrooms and across the lawn is a further patio terrace. The manicured lawns boast a magnificent cherry tree and horse chestnut that gives way to a small field with a path that crosses the stream via a wooden bridge into the bluebell wood. The path winds due South through this established woodland and leads up through the trees to the highest point from which to admire and enjoy the unspoilt landscape. The grounds extend to some 9.66 acres in all, and the property is well protected along its boundaries and screened from the road and passers-by.
