STITHIANS 2 MILES * PENRYN 3 MILES * FALMOUTH 5 ½ MILES * HELSTON 6 MILES * TRURO 10 MILES
Coach House Cottage is situated just under 2 miles south of the popular village of Stithians and only a short distance from the A394 near Rame Cross and Herniss, which provides easy access to Penryn, Falmouth, Helston and Truro. There are also a network of minor country roads leading to the beaches and coves around Falmouth Bay and the North Helford district. Rame has a Post Office store catering for most everyday needs and there is a filling station with local store at nearby Longdowns.
The property is within easy commuting distance of good local services in the neighbouring villages and more comprehensive shopping, schooling and health and leisure services in the towns of Camborne, Redruth, Helston, Penryn, Falmouth and the City of Truro.
The property has a good gated entrance from the minor council road between Rame and the village of Stithians. Stithians has excellent local facilities including Post Office, Cost Cutter shop on the outskirts of the village, doctor's surgery, public house, church, rugby, football and cricket clubs. The village is home to the largest one day agricultural show in the county which is held annually in July with attendance generally in excess of 20,000. Stithians Lake and Activity Centre is just 3 ½ miles with excellent sailing waters, windsurfing and kayaking facilities.
The City of Truro is about 10 miles distant is the principle retail and commercial centre for Cornwall with private and state schools, college, hospitals, restaurants, leisure and entertainment facilities. There are main line railway stations at both Camborne and Redruth. Penryn with its expanding University Campus at Tremough is 3 miles distant and the harbour town of Falmouth with its excellent maritime facilities providing access to the popular sailing waters of the Fal and Carrick Roads, is approximately 5 ½ miles distant.
The former ancient market town of Helston, renowned for its annual Flora Day Furry Dance is 6 miles distant and is the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula boasting miles of spectacular unspoilt coastal scenery and walks, as well as being home to RNAS Culdrose.
A gated hard laid drive leads from the road to an open parking area on the lower side of which there is a pole frame open fronted two bay barn with potential for stabling etc. There are fine far reaching country views from the house and the land.
The well proportioned accommodation is arranged over two floors and there is a sitting room of good size with French doors to the garden and an outstanding kitchen and dining room with excellent fitted units including marble worktops. On the ground floor there are two double bedrooms, both with en-suite facilities, and a wide entrance hall with staircase to four further bedrooms on the first floor, two with juliet balconies and far reaching views, a family bathroom, separate shower room and a landing with study/office area. The adjoining field has established Cornish hedges, long frontage to the road and a post and rail fence with gated entrance off the drive. The field extends to 4.3 acres or thereabouts and the property in all extends to just under 5 acres.
The property is deceptive and larger than is appears from the road and most certainly required a detailed interior viewing to appreciate all that it has to offer.
