  • Bedrooms: 2
An ideal opportunity to own this charming middle terrace, two bedroom, granite cottage which is set in a quiet, sheltered rural location at Carnmenellis twixt Falmouth and Redruth and surrounded by miles of beautiful countryside and close to Stithians Reservoir and Water Sports Centre.

The cottage has been home to our client since 1986 who is now seeking pastures new. The property is well presented and proportioned throughout and has pleasing granite elevations to the original building which are complemented by white rendered extensions to both the front and rear.

The property is a perfect blend of old character and charm, rather neatly entwined with modern facilities that make ones life so much easier! Many features await the new lucky owners including UPVC double glazed windows, doors and front porch, a new kitchen with built-in appliances, exposed beams and stonework and finally a luxurious bathroom extension to the rear.

The generous accommodation includes a front porch, open plan kitchen and sitting room which has a feature stone fireplace, a rear lobby and a luxurious ground floor bathroom/wc in white. The first floor offers two generous bedrooms both of which have a pleasant outlook, the front towards countryside and the rear overlooking the garden.

The cottage is approached from the driveway/lane across a shared pathway with next door into a small gravelled front garden. At the rear of the cottage lies splendid, beautiful well stocked gardens including a sheltered, sun trap paved patio area, shaped lawns, well stocked flower borders either side and a garden shed at the far end.

The closest everyday facilities are located at Rame Post Office and the popular village of Stithians which has convenience stores, The Seven Stars Public House, village school, doctors surgery, a church and of course Stithians Reservoir which is a haven for water sports, nature and walking. In the opposite direction, the awarding winning Golden Lion Public House is approximately two miles distant. The neighbouring towns of Falmouth, Penryn, Redruth, Camborne and Helston offer more comprehensive facilities and access to the main A30 trunk road.

This splendid cottage is considered ideal as a first time purchase or a second home at an affordable price.

As the owners sole agents, we thoroughly recommend an immediate personal viewing to secure this fine property.
