Having been in the same ownership for forty years, this beautifully appointed cottage is now looking for new owners to continue to maintain the extensive wildlife and equestrian parts of this five acre holding.
The cottage benefits from three bedrooms with the primary bedroom having a dressing room. The ground floor focuses on family living, there is a well appointed kitchen with an Aga which gives access to a sitting room and a superb family/dining room which enjoys an outlook over formal and wildlife gardens. For quieter moments, there is a snug with a wood burner and with modern living in mind, one will find a home office. The property is fully double glazed and there is electric heating.
In addition to the main house, there is a two bedroom detached annexe, ideal for the extended family and a generous games room which is attached and could well be incorporated to provide additional accommodation if required. The grounds which surround the cottage form a mix of pastureland for equestrian pursuits and are accessed from the purpose built stable block and yard.
The present owners have invested a considerable amount of time in creating wildlife areas across the property and these include paddocks, woodland, a wildlife meadow with a wide selection of native plants and shrubs and a newly created wildlife pond which is already proving attractive to fresh water wildlife. One will find an extensive vegetable plot and further stables and space ideal for keeping chickens. The present owners have informed us that for many years there has been no artificial fertiliser used across the land.
Although tucked away from passing traffic and enjoying a rural outlook, this semi-detached property is not far from major towns and transport links. Redruth, the nearest town, gives access to a mainline Railway Station and the A30, Truro is a short twelve mile commute and the university town of Falmouth on the south coast is within thirteen miles. Portreath, on the north coast is with two and a half miles.
