SITUATION

This very desirable rural property is situated within the parish of Wendron, on the outskirts of the village, approached off a single track country lane. Surrounded by unspoilt countryside the property is by no means isolated. Helston town, home to the famous Flora Day, is just 2½ miles away providing a comprehensive range of retail, health, leisure, business and education facilities. RNAS Culdrose lies on the western fringe of Helston, some 20 minutes away by car. The picturesque creekside village of Gweek, renowned as home to the National Seal Sanctuary, is less than 4 miles distant and provides access to the many sheltered wooded creeks and inlets of the Helford River as well as the superb sailing waters leading out to Falmouth Bay.

The university campus at Tremough, Penryn is approx. 8 miles distant whilst the bustling harbour town of Falmouth with its wonderful maritime heritage is a further 3 miles with a superb range of shops, cafes and restaurants, and is home to the National Maritime Museum. The City of Truro is about 16 miles distant and is the administration centre for Cornwall with hospitals, college, private and state schools, banking and business facilities, retail, leisure and entertainment services.

THE PROPERTY

This attractive, detached stone built cottage has over the last 20 years or so, benefitted from a number of improvements including the installation of uPVC double glazed windows and doors, and to the rear a part stone faced extension.

The accommodation currently comprises front and rear conservatory style porches, a lounge and dining room with beamed ceiling and inglenook fireplace, a kitchen and breakfast room incorporating an oil fired Rayburn, useful utility room and ground floor bathroom. At first floor level there are two double bedrooms.

The property is accessed directly off the Council lane into a large parking area. Attached to the cottage is a small unconverted and partly dilapidated stone barn plus further partly dilapidated, overgrown, stone outhouses to the rear.

The whole property extends to approximately 7.44 acres and comprises mainly unkempt and overgrown gardens, grounds and land. The land is mainly level with an open aspect.
