A deceptive property offering versatile accommodation, this former Methodist School is being offered for sale with no onward chain.

Situated within a sought after location on the outskirts of Camborne and within a mile of the Tehidy Country Park, this detached property benefits from a generous garden to the rear.

The conversion of the school house has been designed to maximise on the available space whilst still retaining many gothic style windows. Internally there are five bedrooms located over two floors, the family bathroom has been remodelled and in addition to the lounge there is a generous kitchen/diner which features a wood burning stove. Heating is provided by an oil fired boiler supplying radiators and there is partial double glazing.

To the rear the enclosed garden has an extensive patio with access to a covered bar and store, ideal for outside entertaining during the summer months. Set to one side is a further range of timber outbuildings at present being used as gymnasium and additional storage space.

A driveway, accessed across a neighbouring property, gives access to the rear where there is ample parking and storage if required.  

Viewing our interactive virtual tour is strongly recommended for this interesting and unusual property before arranging a closer inspection.
