THE PROPERTY This outstanding Cornish cottage is very private and pretty with well stocked gardens of just under an acre. There are two substantial stone outbuildings, one having been converted into the beautifully presented and self-contained Fox Cottage. This provides additional accommodation for a dependent relative or alternatively could be used as a lucrative holiday let. This building also houses the wood store, a storage room and a large laundry/utility room. The second outbuilding comprises a triple garage with office/storeroom above.
Green Valley is set within a tranquil sylvan setting adjacent to a small trout stream.
The cottage is accessed via a double glazed entrance door leading to a spacious L-shaped kitchen with oil fired Aga.
The inner hallway leads to a south facing sitting room with feature fireplace and double glazed door leading directly to a slate paved terrace and the garden. There is a separate dining room/second sitting room which leads through to the UPVC double glazed conservatory of exceptional size, also with direct access to the garden through double doors. On the first floor there is a spacious landing and three double bedrooms, the master having an en-suite bathroom. There is also a large well-appointed family bathroom. The whole property enjoys immense privacy being surrounded by trees in a beautiful rural valley and featuring extensive lawned areas surrounded and interspersed by incredibly well stocked borders containing mature shrubs and trees.
THE LOCATION Many will not have been to Seworgan - a lovely select, unspoilt farming hamlet in the Cornish countryside. Set well away from the main road between Falmouth and Helston towns the property is 2.5 miles from Constantine village with its active community, school, pub and shops. It is 3 miles from Gweek, located at the head of the Helford River. Gweek also has an active community, shop, pub and a bustling boatyard.
Although secluded and set within this small hamlet of country homes, Green Valley is close to the Helford River which is internationally renowned for its sailing waters and for the National Trust gardens of Glendurgan.
On entering Seworgan a long discreet entrance driveway is found leading to Green Valley.
To visit Green Valley is a treat where the delightful tree lined approach builds expectation, drawing one away from the road and neighbours and into the valley. This charming cottage with its private entrance spurs off the road through Seworgan and leads into the property's gardens and grounds. It is likely that the streamside setting has been the site of living and working since medieval times. The remarkable tranquillity and unspoilt situation belies its history and industrial heritage. It is a truly 'magical' spot.
