General Comments - It is rare that a cottage with land in such a special geographic location on the south Cornish coast comes to the open market. Nancassick Farm Cottage lies within a short distance of the Fal estuary and only 4 miles from Truro city centre. The four bedroom cottage offers very comfortable accommodation with potential to create an annexe if required. The adjoining paddock is ideal for equestrian use or hobby farming and extends to approximately 3.1 acres enclosed within a natural hedge boundary with fine country views and there is potential to erect stabling if required (subject to necessary consent). Nancassick Farm Cottage is a real gem, combining a fabulous location with countryside views and level land. An early viewing is absolutely essential.
The Cottage - This is a delightful stone and slate roof building dating from the 19th century. It is notable for having remained predominantly in its original form with a small extension at the rear and is a most attractive building with white painted small pane window casements. Internally the house has been upgraded and improved over the years and whilst not over-large it affords homely accommodation with original features including beamed ceilings and a fireplace now fitted with a multi fuel stove. In all the accommodation comprises an entrance porch, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory, cloakroom and shower room to the ground floor with four bedrooms and bathroom to the first floor. Bedroom four is accessed via a separate staircase and hence there is potential for a self contained annexe. A driveway provides parking for several cars with space for a boat or caravan and furthermore there is a detached stone barn, currently utilised as a garage. The enclosed garden is located to the rear and side, it is extremely private, well established and ideal for children and pets, there are several sitting out areas and pedestrian access to the adjoining field.
Feock - Feock is a picturesque village situated between the Cathedral city of Truro and the port of Falmouth. Standing on the western shore of the River Fal and at the head of the Carrick Roads, Feock is readily accessible to Loe Beach with moorings and boat lay-ups together with direct access to some of the finest day sailing waters in the country. Surrounding the village is rolling countryside abounding with scenic walks. Just along the road is the National Trust gardens at Trellisick and the King Harry Ferry which offers a picturesque shortcut to the beaches and spectacular coastline of the Roseland Peninsula. There are general stores at Playing Place and Carnon Downs with more extensive amenities available in Truro.
Truro - Truro is approximately 5 miles distant and forms the administrative and cultural centre of Cornwall and boasts some of the county's leading educational facilities. Truro also provides an excellent shopping centre with a fine selection of restaurants as well as many of the national supermarkets. There is a main line railway station connecting to London (Paddington) and a good selection of both private and state schools. The Hall For Cornwall provides all year round entertainment and there are golf courses at nearby Killiow, Truro and Falmouth. On the north coast is Newquay airport with a number of scheduled daily flights departing to both national and international destinations.
Falmouth - Falmouth is well known as a favoured residential and tourist destination, much of this being due to its rich maritime history. There is an excellent range of shopping and cultural facilities in the town including a train station with regular connections to Truro. The harbour and beaches are significant attractions of the town and since 2003 Falmouth has also been home to the National Maritime Museum. It also has its own University with a campus at Wood Lane and Tremough.
