Bissoe is a small rural hamlet in an area with a rich tin mining heritage. There are many secluded homesteads tucked away down a plethora of lanes and byways offering privacy and seclusion without being isolated. The area is a popular semi-rural country location within easy reach of the main towns and services on offer in the centre of mid-west Cornwall.
The property is situated equi-distant between the main A30 trunk road and the A39 Truro to Falmouth road, and between the North and South Coasts at Portreath on the Godrevey Heritage Coastline and Devoran to the south east where the Carnon River meets Restronguet Creek and leads into the renowned sailing waters of the Carrick Roads. Both coasts provide spectacular walking and scenery, the north coast being rugged and dramatic with sandy beaches popular with surfers and the south coast with its sheltered wooded valleys, creeks and inlets. The well-known Bissoe trail is close at hand, a 14 mile long former mineral railway line connecting Portreath and Devoran, now popular with walkers and cyclists.
Penryn, home to the Combined University of Cornwall Campus at Tremough, is about 6 miles distant. For day to day commuting, the network of country lanes and major roads puts towns such as Redruth, Camborne, Hayle, Helston, Newquay and the City of Truro within half an hour’s drive. Truro is home to a wide range of professional services, private and state schools, college, hospitals, retail, sporting and leisure facilities.
White Cottage is set in a private secluded location, approached over a tree lined drive (not suitable for large vehicles) off an unadopted lane. The property has been extended, modernised and refurbished to provide well-appointed spacious family accommodation. Warmed by oil fired central heating and complemented by wood frame and PVCu double glazing, a front porch opens into the dining hall off which is an en-suite bedroom, kitchen and separate utility room, family bathroom and a large living room. At first floor level there are three further bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room. Most rooms overlook the gardens and grounds with country views beyond. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn incorporating a wide variety of mature shrubs and bushes with a garden workshop in one corner.
Nearby is a parcel of land extending to 8.2 acres or thereabouts, available by separate negotiation and comprising enclosed pasture paddocks and an area of former mining ground with capped mine shafts, now a wildlife amenity area.
