Full description

REFURBISHMENT PROJECT A large detached cottage in an attractive and private position on the outskirts of the village. Loosely arranged to provide two unit accommodation - ideal for family with dependant relative.

This interesting old property was built originally as two cottages and whilst amalgamated in later years it has since been further extended to the rear. The most recent addition to the property is in good condition with double glazing and central heating as standard but the original element now warrants upgrading and refurbishment. Having been occupied by a family with a dependant relative the dwelling is loosely divided into two separate units of accommodation and whilst ideal for this purpose it could also be used as one large residence.

The Nook is set within a cluster of properties at Zelah Lane about a quarter of a mile from Zelah village. It is an attractive location, predominantly rural and relatively quiet. The property stands within a generous area of garden and two driveways provide plenty of parking. The whole property affords enormous scope and early viewing is essential.

Zelah is a small village mid-way between Truro and the north Cornish coast at Perranporth and just a very short distance from the main A30 road. Limited local facilities includes a pub within the village whereas nearby Shortlanesend offers a shop and post office, Methodist Church, another pub and thriving primary school. The proximity to the A30 provides easy access to all parts of the county.
