‘Smugglers’ to Become Residential Premises

Smugglers-cottage-covered-in-ivyThe Smuggler’s Cottage at Tolverne is to become a residential property including a small business opportunity.

Roseland Online was contacted by the estate’s lettings office asking us to inform Roseland Peninsula and South Central Cornwall residents of their change of plans.

They have abandoned plans to find a tenant for their commercial cafe and tea-room and are now seeking a potential lessee for the property as a residential/small business premises.

The contract will have special operating requirements which include:

• The grade II listed cottage is to be utilised as a residential unit by the new lessees

• The new lessees will be required to undertake duties on behalf of the Tregothnan Estate as a river bailiff and boat man for the Estate’s interests and boats on the River Fal

• The new lessees will be invited to specify and invest in the internal refurbishment of the premises in conjunction with the Tregothnan Estate

The property boasts:

• River Bailiff and Boatman Lease
• Frontline waterfront position
• Historic site in prominent River Fal location
• Grade II Listed residential cottage
• Pontoon and 14 moorings and extensive car parking
• Terraced garden areas

Those interested in finding out more about this opportunity may register their interest by contacting the Tregothnan Estate on 01872 520325 or propertyenquiries@tregothnan.co.uk

A previous open letter by a local Roseland resident Johan Balslev at the beginning of August attracted many comments on Roseland Online because of the sensitive historical nature of this property.

The estate is also making a preliminary announcement to obtain a residential Lease in a Waterfront Location on the River Fal The Ferryhouse at St Michael Penkivel. More information on both properties can be found on their website by clicking here.

  • How sad … so another lovely cornish house will go to people from London … how you can hear on the new The Fisherman’s Friend Album … “I Dream Of A Bridge On The Tamar – It Opens Us To The East – And The English They Live In Our Houses – The Spanish Fish In These Seas” …
    And here is a question of a Friend from Germany: Well Cornish Folks, what will you do against it?
