THE LOCATION The Hamlet of Chynhale is a delightful, unspoilt and historic pocket of Cornwall with a timeless, calming atmosphere. Indeed, one can imagine that little has changed here in the last 100 years. Chynhale, in the parish of Sithney is set within a valley approximately three miles from Helston town which provides comprehensive shopping, schooling and business facilities. Communities of Lowertown and Sithney are nearby and indeed Sithney community primary school is just one mile away. The location is central and convenient for access to other Cornish towns such as Falmouth (8 miles) and Penzance (10 miles) as well as Truro Cathedral City, approximately 14 miles away.
THE PROPERTY 1 Chynhale cottages is an absolute gem and one of the loveliest homes of its type that we have seen for a very long time. It was bought in 2007 by the current owners who, over the years, have set about a scheme of improvement and expansion that has evolved as they got to know the cottage. Without Sparing expense and with great care, it was enlarged and fine tuned to become the utterly charming place it is today.
Number 1 is somewhere between a house and a cottage in stature and contains lovely elements of each. The property delights all year around with its good sized and so sociable living space and easy flow inside and out into the garden. There is a depth of quality here, where everything feels just right, effortlessly blending its originality, modern comforts and real style to create something very special indeed.
The garden is a joy, natural and calming, reflective and consistent with the cottage itself. It faces South to the rear, overlooking and adjoining a Trevarno Estate field with areas of terrace on which to relax and enjoy, raised beds and produce areas, greenhouses and a wonderful old granite outhouse, as well as interest all around.
The three cottages share an area to park, with number 1 having comfortable space for a car and camper, for example.
As the owners' sole agents, we are excited to market and sell this one, knowing how rare and special it is. We wholeheartedly recommend you come see, enjoy and buy!
