We are delighted to offer as our returning clients sole agents, this superb, four bedroom, detached granite cottage which is set in mature well stocked gardens alongside a field in the centre of this popular village which enjoys good access by road to the surrounding towns of Helston, Falmouth, Penryn, Redruth and the cathedral city of Truro.

Since purchasing the cottage through our agency some 13 years ago, our clients have transformed the property into a well presented home that anyone would be proud to own. Paying attention to details has paid dividends here by keeping and restoring character features that blend well with modern day conveniences, making this a bright and welcoming home that is easy to run.

Packed with features including oil fired central heating by radiators, a feature granite fireplace with multi-fuel stove in lounge, UPVC double glazed box sash windows, a wealth of exposed stonework, a galleried landing with reproduction arched window, a fitted kitchen with stainless steel range style cooker, Venetian and Roman blinds, wood block flooring and much more besides.

The well planned accommodation includes on the ground floor, an entrance porch, reception hall, generous lounge, a fitted living kitchen/dining room and a porch/utility at the rear. The first floor has a galleried landing, four bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom/wc in white. Outside offers beautiful landscaped gardens to the front, side and rear, workshop, wood store and finally a driveway with parking for several cars if parked sensibly.

Our motivated vendors are selling their home as a chain free transaction allowing potential new buyers a chance to conduct a speedy sale and thus taking advantage of the current stamp duty holiday (ending in March 2021).

An early viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate and secure this excellent cottage.
