Church Coombe, Redruth

An increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a dilapidated former cottage set into the hillside within one third of an acre of terraced woodland creating a lovely, private and sheltered site.

The building is approached over a pretty Cornish country lane running through the hamlet of Church Coombe via a stone track leading up to the property.

The building is built of mainly traditional stone and part concrete block walls under a collapsed corrugated sheeted roof.  There is a terraced area of land to the side and above the building, with a range of semi-mature and mature trees inc. Sycamore and Ash creating lovely sheltered areas.



Church Coombe is a charming Cornish hamlet, about 1 mile to the south west of the well served town of Redruth, and to the south east of Carn Brea. The village of Carnkie is about ½ a mile to the south west and Portreath on the North Coast is about 3½ miles away.

There are lovely walks and cycle routes nearby over the Great Flat Lode and many historic mining trails. The whole area is contained within a World Heritage Site.


The Building: 8.55m x 5.10m externally, was originally a cottage with access to the rear at first floor level. The first floor has collapsed leaving a walled shell. No planning permission has been sought to convert the building and the property is being sold as is and not subject to obtaining any permissions.

The track which leads past the building formerly giving access to adjacent land, is included in the sale and the gateway at the end will be built up.
