BUILT IN THE EARLY 1800'S THIS ATTRACTIVE GRADE II HOUSE IN A SMALL HAMLET ON THE NORTH COAST OF CORNWALL OFFERS VERSATILE ACCOMMODATION WITH SEA VIEWS. Built originally as a Count House, where the mine captain lived and the accounts were kept, it was here that adventurers, the investors in the mine met. The Wheal Gertrude mine was not the success that was hoped for and ceased production in 1828. In the following decade Mingoose Villa became a Kiddley-wink, licensed to sell beer but a wink to the landlord would produce brandy hidden in a kettle. From 1847 it turned into the vicarage for the New Church in Mount Hawke and for 40 years a succession of 6 vicars lived at the property. The current owner has enjoyed the property for over 60 years and describes it as always being a happy house. ACCOMMODATION The front door leads into an entrance porch and then into the hall which has a tiled floor. Off the entrance hall is a generous study, sitting room with open-fire and a dining room with flag slate floors and a magnificent fireplace. A scullery connects through to the working kitchen. There are five bedrooms on the first floor. There is also a family bathroom. COTTAGE The detached one bedroomed cottage includes a kitchen, sitting room with access to the garden, shower room and a generous bedroom on the first floor.
