Rare opportunity to acquire a Cornish engine house

It’s not often that a property comes on to the market with a Cornish engine house in its garden – especially one that has all the necessary permissions for conversion into a residential dwelling - but that’s the case with Jynjy near Praze in Cornwall.

Furthermore, the recently completed four bedroom bungalow has been constructed to an exceptionally high standard and is eco-friendly. Its environmental and cost-saving benefits include underfloor heating provided by an air source heat pump, solar panels, technology data points and remote controlled blinds. All the bedrooms are doubles, two with en-suite facilities, the kitchen is well-appointed and the lounge bright and sunny with views over the one acre plus garden and the countryside beyond. Locally hand-made oak stairs lead from the hallway to a large galleried landing – providing office space and access to two bedrooms and the bathroom. There is a downstairs cloakroom and the integral garage has the scope, subject to planning, to be converted to additional living accommodation - potentially providing a separate annex. The old Cornish engine house in the grounds has permission for conversion into a two bedroom, three storey residential dwelling set within its own gardens. The living room comprises the whole of the top floor and will give magnificent 360 degree views. “Jynjy is a truly remarkable property that combines all the appeal of Cornwall’s tin mining past with the very best of modern day living,” said negotiator David Tregay who is handling the sale from Miller & Son’s Camborne office. “The engine house used to service Trevoole Mine and the views from the site are glorious. The current owners have developed Jynjy with enormous care and attention and will, I know, be very sad to leave.” In addition to the bungalow and engine house, there is an open fronted double garage, a good-sized workshop with a toilet and shower to the rear and plenty of outside parking. The property is being offered for sale by Miller & Son at a guide price in excess of £700,000.
