Situated in a Sylvan setting, some six miles west of Truro in the village of Scorrier, this detached character cottage sits within professionally designed gardens of approximately 0.6 acres.

Well presented throughout there are four double size bedrooms, two of which have en-suite showers.

The lounge, which is of a generous size, features one wall in exposed stone with pointed granite lintel fire surround housing a recessed gas log effect wood burning stove.  

There is a formal dining room, home office, well appointed kitchen/breakfast room and a utility room.  

The bathroom and second WC have been remodelled in a contemporary style, the property is fully double glazed with modern uPVC units and heating/hot water is provided by a mains gas boiler supplying radiators.  

To the outside the gardens must be considered a major asset to Fir Trees, offering privacy and year round colour.  There is a plethora of mature shrubs and trees which complement the various lawned parts of the garden and a central seating space with water feature.

One will find ample parking and turning, a generous garage with hard standing to the side and a former two bedroom chalet which is in disrepair which could form the basis for feature development giving additional accommodation.

Viewing is strongly recommended!

Scorrier, which is on the Truro side of Redruth, is conveniently located for access to the A30 which will be found within a quarter of a mile.

Redruth, the nearest town, will be found within two and a half miles and here there is a mainline Railway Station, both local and national shopping outlets, banks and Post Office.

Truro, the commercial and cultural centre of Cornwall, will be found within a short commute of only six miles.
