Historic coastal vicarage in idyllic Talland Bay, south-east Cornwall
Rear of property
Sitting room
   Close to the South West Coast path and Talland's delightful small beaches, the Old Vicarage in Talland is Georgian and Victorian with much earlier origins and has a colouful history including tales of a smuggling vicar and a rogue curate. The house is full of period character charm and is set in wonderfully private and sheltered gardens. The main house has 6 bedrooms and 4 reception rooms and the attached self-contained annexe, which is the oldest part, has a further 2 bedrooms and 2 reception rooms. The annexe is separately assessed for council tax and could be let for holiday visitors or long term.
    The Old Vicarage is in the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but is not listed so there is great freedom for internal alterations and development.   Adjoining the house and annexe there are various outbuildings which have potential for development as staff, holiday or residential units.
   Outside, in addition to the ornamental gardens, there is a vegetable garden adjoining the churchyard and a cliffside field formerly used as grazing for donkeys, with magnificent sea and coastal views extending from the Eddystone lighthouse to the Roseland and Lizard peninsulas. In the field there are a number of the magnificent Monterey pine trees which are now officially regarded as iconic of Cornwall's coast as well as a former tennis court and a small vineyard which is not currently maintained but could easily be put back into productive use - probably the vineyard closest to the sea in the UK. In all the garden and grounds extend to just under 2 acres.
