A spacious mid-terraced cottage, situated within a few minutes' walk of the university town of Penryn and its excellent local amenities, providing 2 double bedrooms, a large dining area, recently refurbished bathroom, and a range of useful outbuildings (in need of modernisation). Immediate vacant possession and no onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

Having been in our client's ownership for many years, 87 West Street is a nicely proportioned mid-terraced cottage, offering much needed two bedroom accommodation, together with spacious living areas to the ground floor, and an array of useful outbuildings to the rear which are now in need of modernisation.

In brief, a welcoming living room with open fireplace and granite surround, exposed beams and replacement flooring leads to the open entrance way for the broad dining area and, adjacent, stairs rising to the first floor. A dual aspect kitchen provides access to the rear courtyard and its range of outbuildings. On the first floor, the main bedroom offers a generous amount of space and light, with the slightly smaller second bedroom to the rear of the property, together with a recently refitted bathroom.

THE LOCATION

West Street is one of the main thoroughfares within this booming university town, the subject of mass ongoing investment, following the continuous expansion of the university campus at Tremough and varied residential and commercial developments.

Excellent amenities are literally within minutes of the cottage, including convenience stores, banks, various shops, junior and secondary schools, public houses and highly regarded bus and rail services to the nearby port of Falmouth and cathedral city of Truro, approximately three and nine miles distant respectively.
