A pretty stone fronted period home offering bright, two bedroom,
two reception accommodation that has been updated and well cared for during
the current vendor’s 23 years of ownership.
Brea village is a convenient setting on the southern fringes of Pool between Camborne and Redruth. Once the bustling heartland of Cornwall’s tin mining industry, the mines have long since closed leaving the village to become a sleepy hamlet in rural surroundings. It is by no means an isolated spot as a host of shopping facilities are close to hand in Tuckingmill and Pool together with a variety of business and commercial services available at Heartlands and the Pool innovation centre. The central location puts the wider shopping, schooling and commercial amenities of Redruth and Camborne within a 3 miles radius and the scenic north Cornwall coastline at Portreath some 4 miles away. The quick and easy access to the A30 is ideal for those who regularly travel around the county and beyond.
Behind the appealing stone elevations of this semi-detached cottage is well proportioned accommodation that has been improved and upgraded by the current owners who have been in residence for more than 23 years. The cottage has been re-roofed and uPVC double glazed windows and doors have been installed leading to a warm and comfortable feel to the accommodation that briefly comprises a reception hall, lounge, good sized kitchen, rear lobby, downstairs shower room WC and two first floor bedrooms. The attic has been boarded and a skylight installed in the roof, and up until recently was used for a large model train set. There is much use of stained and varnished timber especially for internal doors and floors enhancing the character of this home. To the immediate rear there is an enclosed courtyard above which are heavily planted terraces including a sitting out area taking full advantage of a sunny aspect and views over the valley.
