THE PROPERTY Wow! That is what most people who view will likely say. This lovely old granite cottage has been the subject of much improvement and obvious love by our vendors and is now a very comfortable home and something to be proud to own. On the ground floor there are two sitting rooms, kitchen with dining room off, large conservatory and an office or fourth bedroom. Upstairs are three double bedrooms with the master having the benefit of en-suite facilities, plus the family bathroom. In the huge and interesting garden there are many outbuildings but most importantly there is a great sized home office that could easily be used as an annexe or holiday let accommodation perhaps.
Plenty of parking, surrounded by countryside and with footpath walks close by.
THE LOCATION About 200 yards down a quiet no-through lane with a couple of neighbouring properties you come to the cottage. Just a ten-minute drive from Falmouth and within easy distance to many beaches plus the windsurfing lake at Stithians. Good transport links as the road from Falmouth to Helston is at the end of the lane. Out of most windows a countryside vista is on offer.
