Wilcove Lane, Torpoint, England, United Kingdom
Year Built:
Preservation Status:
This handsome Grade II*-listed home sits in the middle of the picturesque National Trust-managed Antony Estate, amid the rural countryside of the Devon/Cornwall border.

The History

Maryfield House was originally built as a school in 1847 by the owners of neighbouring Antony House, the Carew-Pole family, to commemorate the birth of their first child. It was rebuilt as a vicarage for the Church of St Philip and St James opposite before being remodelled by architect William White, who, in 1849, divided it into a Gothic-style residence. In recent years, the house has been thoughtfully renovated and restored. A plethora of original features have been preserved, including the staircase with its quatrefoil carvings, substantial fireplaces with pointed arch detailing, and a screen in the study set on marble columns.

The Space

It unfolds over 6,000 sq ft, with six bedrooms and five bathrooms, a series of striking living areas and additional outbuildings. The estate’s striking church sits at the foot of the house’s pretty gardens, which encompass terraced areas well-positioned for the sun and an outdoor heated pool. The owners have a paddock on a long lease with the National Trust and an adjoining field on a rolling lease with the Anthony Estate, both of which could be passed on to the house’s future owner. To the rear of the house, a path leads down to the banks of the River Tamar.
