Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
Ideally situated in a highly convenient central village position, a charming character cottage retaining many character features including 2 granite fireplaces, original timber doors and staircase; offering well proportioned accommodation with 2 reception rooms, a large master bedroom and spacious first floor bathroom, also benefiting from a particularly deep south-west facing lawned garden to the rear.

THE PROPERTY

Perfectly positioned for the village amenities, an attractive and desirable stone cottage, boasting tasteful and well proportioned accommodation, which is centrally heated and fitted with double glazed sash windows to the front, as well as a deep and fairly level south-west facing rear garden approaching 10.00m in length.

Inside this character cottage, an entrance hall leads to both ground floor reception rooms, with the sitting room to the front featuring a traditional granite fireplace, the through dining room, with impressive inglenook fireplace and staircase to the first floor, leads to a separate kitchen behind. Also accessed off the dining room is a small conservatory/study which provides direct access onto the garden. On the first floor, a part galleried landing overlooks the timber stairwell and leads to both double bedrooms (the master being particularly spacious) and the light and spacious bathroom to the rear, most tastefully refitted with a modern suite. A good sized loft area provides excellent storage via two ceiling hatches, and possibly the potential for further accommodation (subject to all planning permissions and consents). The rear garden is a real feature of the property, being fairly level, and would be perfect for families, gardeners or anyone requiring southerly-facing outside areas.

THE LOCATION

St Andrews Terrace is centrally positioned with many of the village amenities 'on the doorstep', including the village shop/post office and school being within a short level walk. Also nearby are the public house, church and bus stop with regular services. Ponsanooth itself is a well positioned and highly popular village, perfectly situated for the surrounding towns of Falmouth, Truro, Redruth and Helston.

The port and university town of Falmouth is approximately five miles distant and provides a full range of shops, restaurants and bars, and of course some of the finest sailing waters in the west country. The cathedral city of Truro is approximately seven miles distant and is the county's retailing, commercial, legal and administrative centre, and has a main-line rail link to London (Paddington). Ponsanooth is also well positioned for the A30 and, therefore, swift access to the county's airport at Newquay with regular flights to London Stansted and Gatwick, as well as other UK and European destinations.
