Situated alongside the River Kennel leading to the upper reaches of Restronguet Creek at Devoran, Perran Foundry is a historic landmark development that once formed a hugely important part of the Cornish mining industry. Perran Foundry is one of three major iron foundries in Cornwall founded in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries manufacturing steam pumping engines for draining tin and copper mines.
The Wharfside Houses are the most recently completed new-build properties within the development and Steam House forms the central section, providing a delightful view of the site, surrounding woodland and creek.
The delightful village of Perranwell Station is conveniently situated almost halfway between Truro and Falmouth, and within easy access of both the north and south coasts. This highly regarded village includes its own primary school, pub, church, post office and village shop, active village hall, football and cricket clubs, together with its branchline link to Truro and Falmouth.
The area is incredibly well placed for the creeks of the Fal Estuary and Mylor Yacht Harbour (where Sir Ben Ainslie learnt to sail) just a short drive away, arguably some of the best day-sailing waters in the UK. Both Falmouth and Truro are approximately six miles away providing an extensive range of facilities including national class schools and colleges, hospitals, the National Maritime Museum, Hall for Cornwall and mainline railway connection to London Paddington. Cornwall Airport is just 24 miles away with a range of domestic and European flights.
