THE LOCATION Constantine is a thriving and popular village with an active community and great everyday facilities which include a well-regarded primary school, two village stores, one specialising in wine and spirits, a hair salon, a church, together with two village pubs - The Queens Arms and the excellent nearby Trengilly Wartha Inn, as well as doctors' and dentists' surgeries. The village is a sociable place too, with a monthly farmer's market, numerous societies and clubs and an increasingly popular community centre called The Tolmen Centre offering a variety of events.
The village is rural and unspoilt, lying within easy reach of Port Navas creek as well as being on a daily bus route to Falmouth harbour and Helston market town (approximately 6 miles each).
THE PROPERTY Built of local stone this cottage has been owned by the same family for many generations. From the road it looks to be a double fronted cottage, but a stone wing built on the rear possibly in excess of 100 years ago has more than doubled the size of the property. Now in need of an uplift, the new owner may decide to renovate to make a spacious home or a developer may decide to convert it into flats (subject to necessary planning permission). There is some outside space with a small garden and parking is available on the road outside the property.

This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with Traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible, buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the purchaser to exchange contracts immediately but grant 56 days to exchange and complete. Allowing the additional time to exchange on the property means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction or if the vendor accepts an offer during the action, the buyer will be required to put down a non-refundable Reservation Fee of 4.2% including VAT, subject to a minimum of £6,000 including VAT which secures the transaction and takes the property off the market. The legal Pack can be downloaded for free from the auction website or requested from our Auction Department.
Please note this property is subject to an undisclosed Reserve Price which is generally no more than 10% more than the advertised start price. Both the starting price and reserve price can be subject to change. Terms and conditions apply to the Modern Method of Auction, which is operated by IAM-sold Ltd
