Coombe Cottage was originally a game keeper’s cottage for the former Basset’s Tehidy Estate. The stone built cottage with feature granite quoins, lintels and slate cills has a lovely sunny aspect and character accommodation, all presented in good order. The vendors have decorated and finished the property to a high standard. The accommodation was sympathetically extended about 5 years ago providing additional space for an extended kitchen and breakfast room and a bathroom. The living and dining room now provides a lovely family room with Rayburn, there is a separate sitting room/cosy with original parquet floor, a conservatory porch and larder/store room. At first floor level there are two large double bedrooms, a single room and spacious family bathroom. From the cottage there are lovely views towards Tehidy and Carn Brea as well as country views.

Useful storage outbuildings, garage and potting sheds together with sitting out patio. Garage building with wc and mezzanine floor providing ancillary accommodation. Parking to the front of the garage and path to conservatory as well as around the side to the rear of the property.
