Occupying a Sylvan setting within the village of Scorrier, ‘Sun Cottage’ is a substantial, detached cottage in grounds of a third of an acre. We believe ‘Sun Cottage’ is so named as all principal rooms have a southerly aspect.

Ideal for family occupation there are four double size bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. On the ground floor one will find a large lounge with access off to a sun lounge and study.  The kitchen/breakfast room features an oil fired Aga in addition to a comprehensive range of kitchen units and there is a shower room/WC.  Many of the rooms feature open beamed ceilings, there is full double glazing and heating is provided by an oil fired system supplying radiators with a feature open fireplace in the lounge.  

The main living accommodation, which faces southerly, enjoys an outlook across the garden which is mainly lawned, screened by mature trees and hedging and incorporates a mixture of shrubs, an orchard, outbuildings and a greenhouse.  

The property would now benefit from some updating and is being offered for sale with no onward chain.  

Scorrier, which is on the Truro side of Redruth, is conveniently located for access to the A30 which is within half a mile.  Redruth, the nearest town, will be found within two and a half miles and here there is a main line Railway Station, both local and national shopping outlets, banks and Post Office.

Truro, the commercial and cultural centre of Cornwall will be find within a short commute of only ten miles.  The north coast at Portreath is only five miles distant and the area around Scorrier is well served with cycle ways, footpaths for country walks and there is a well respected pub that serves fine ales and good food!

Viewing strongly advised!
