Located within a Sylvan setting, some two miles from the north coast at Portreath, Keepers Cottage is a Grade II listed thatched cottage formerly part of the Basset Estate and believed to date from the 1790’s.
Sitting in private landscaped gardens approaching 0.70 acres, the cottage was extended in 2015 and now offers versatile family sized accommodation which may suit those with an extended family. One will find three double bedrooms with the master bedroom enjoying access via its own separate staircase and benefiting from an en-suite shower room. In addition to the lounge there is a dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and a sitting room located to the rear which has a triple aspect with views over the gardens.
This property oozes character with many of the walls featuring lime pointed stonework, several windows are leaded with working shutters and both the lounge and kitchen have beamed ceilings. Heating is provided via a mains gas central heating system.
In addition to the formal gardens, the gravel driveway leads to parking for six plus vehicles and gives access to a generous double garage with a hobby room above.
This unique property warrants closer inspection to be fully appreciated and an appointment to view is strongly recommended.
