THE LOCATION Victoria Place is in a central village position away from the road yet within a few moments walk from Ponsanooth's facilities.
Ponsanooth - meaning 'bridge at the stream', is a popular village with an active community and good everyday facilities including a primary school, church, pub, village store and post office. The location is convenient, about four miles from Falmouth and Redruth and nine miles from Truro with regular bus services to each.
The picturesque river Kennall runs nearby; in the 19th century this river worked a flour mill and a number of gunpowder mills, machinery at a foundry and a paper mill.
THE PROPERTY 2 Victoria Place is a potentially lovely cottage, crying out for restoration and love. It is set mid terrace with pedestrian access along a pathway serving just these four cottages. The good-sized rear garden is offset from the property and overgrown, with a useful block built outhouse.
Accommodation has been neglected and is in need of immediate work with a leaking rear roof section and some resultant damage within. The charm and much that is original remains with such opportunity to create a special home in this great position.
