A stunning converted engine house from a 19th century tin and copper mine in 'Poldark country' offers the chance to own a piece of Cornwall's rich mining history.<br />
<br />
Tregurtha Downs, which was a working mine for almost 20 years, is now a beautiful five-bedroom house that is sure to appeal to fans of the BBC's popular Cornish period drama Poldark.<br />
<br />
And with the BBC reportedly signing a new £50million deal to make another five series of its popular period drama, the interest in the Cornish coast and its mining past is unlikely to fade.<br />
<br />
This Grade II listed building, which was in use as a mine from 1883 to 1902, stood derelict for about eight decades before it was transformed into a house over five floors. <br />
<br />
Its most impressive feature is a top floor vaulted sitting room 40ft above ground level, which has a balcony with breaktaking panoramic views of the Cornish countryside.<br />
<br />
The house is on the market at £685,000 with Stags estate agents.
