SITUATION

Higher Bal is a small rural hamlet set back from the dramatic north Cornish coastline within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just 1 mile outside of the hugely popular village of St. Agnes.  From here many will be able to walk the lane or footpath in to the village where there is a wide range of shops, a primary/junior school, doctor’s surgery, Post Office and various restaurants, cafes and pubs.  St. Agnes is famed for its surfing beaches and bracing coastal walks which help make it one of Cornwall’s top holiday destinations.  It is a bustling all year round village due to its close proximity to the County's main arterial route the A30 and Truro City, the regional health, commerce, shopping and schooling centre of Cornwall.  A regular bus service connects St. Agnes with Truro, Camborne, Redruth, Perranporth and various other villages and towns in the area.

THE PROPERTY

One of a terrace of four, this single fronted period cottage is now in need of extensive refurbishment.  At some point it has been re-roofed and the windows have been replaced with double glazing.  It is fronted by an enclosed level garden with sunny aspect. A porch opens in to a reception hall off which is a cosy lounge with fireplace and stove, and a good sized kitchen/diner from where there are views towards the sea across the fields at the rear. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a large bathroom. Original features still to be found and ready for enhancement are the high skirting boards, the panelled doors with thumb latches and ornate architraves, and the lovely panelling flanking the lounge window.
