Full description

Enjoying an attractive courtyard setting, with just 4 other properties, surrounded by unspoilt countryside but within approximately 1.5 miles from the well served village of Constantine, a detached cottage, believed to date back approximately 400 years, the subject of a programme of refurbishment works requiring final completion, providing highly characterful 3-bedroomed accommodation, with gardens and grounds of approximately 2.5 acres, including a large field with separate roadside access, and 2 large outbuildings. An ideal opportunity for prospective purchasers seeking a detached rural home with land, requiring final refurbishment.

The Property - Of mellow stone and granite elevations under a pitched roof of natural slate (about to be re-slated), 'Silverhill Farm Cottage' is believed to date back approximately 400 years, occupying an attractive courtyard setting, comprising just four other individual properties.

A long term 'project' needing final completion, the cottage offers charming and highly characterful accommodation with works having already been completed including re-wiring, re-plumbing, the installation of hardwood framed sealed unit double glazing, and a dual central heating system fired by an oil fired Rayburn in the breakfast room, and by a large glass-fronted log-burner in the lounge.

A front entrance porch leads into the living room which features a beamed ceiling, deep slate silled windows, part exposed stone walls, and a separate dining area with casement doors onto the gardens. A rear hall provides access to a well appointed shower room, and into a double aspect kitchen with broad opening to the breakfast room. Upstairs, the three bedrooms all enjoy far-reaching views over the courtyard and beyond, over many miles of countryside, to Goonhilly and The Lizard peninsula.

To the front of the cottage there is a small enclosed garden with archway to a well enclosed side and rear garden, with outside store and office, ready for landscaping and with some suitable materials on site, available by separate negotiation. A driveway to the side of the cottage provides ample parking, and leads to two large detached outbuildings, ideal for storage or as double garages, workshops or stabling etc. The grounds. which extend to approximately two and a half acres or thereabouts, are readily accessed from the cottage and outbuildings, and mainly comprise a large gently sloping field, with separate independent access from the roadside, part planted with fruit trees and shelter-belts.

In all, a rare opportunity to purchase an intriguing detached cottage, requiring final 'cosmetic' refurbishment and external landscaping, close to one of North Helford Area's most popular villages, and just seven and a half miles from the port of Falmouth.
