The Property - A wonderful opportunity for a discerning purchaser to aquire a gorgeous 'chocolate box' quintessential character thatched cottage . A beautifully presented, and exceptionally spacious four double bedroom (all fitted with en suite facilities) three reception room character period house of immense charm and ambience. The residence has early 19th century origins, and has been dramatically extended over the years to provide a fabulous spacious character home of much style. The residence has incredibly attractive 'eye catching' architectural elevations, and will undoubtedly appeal to a wide spectrum of potential buyers such as early retirement, investment, potential bed/breakfast, and family purchasers alike wishing to reside in this beautiful near coastal location. The vendors have owned the property for approximately twelve years, and during their tenure have previously used the home as a successful bed and breakfast business. The property has part exposed stone/painted rendered external elevations, under a thatched roof, wooden framed double glazed windows and warmed by an oil fired central heating system. The heating is further boosted during the winter months by a multi fuel stove located in the living room, together with an impressive oil fired Aga in the kitchen naturally generating copious amounts of residual warmth. A plethora of period internal features include heavily open beamed ceilings, a feature stone built fireplace, iroko doors fitted with wrought iron handles/latches, together with some exposed granite/stone walls adding to the ambience of this delightful home. The property has been stylishly internally painted throughout in a neutral colour scheme. The accommodation is extremely versatile, and could potentially provide a self contained annexe (subject to planning permission) for a dependent relative by simply amalgamating the utility room (converting it into a kitchenette) with access into the main ground floor bedroom and garden. The enclosed garden is a lovely feature to the property, mainly laid to lawn with extensive well stocked borders providing much natural colour, and incorporating a variety of specimen plants. There is a side paved patio, which is an ideal place to dine out during the summer months. A rear garden gate leads out onto the pedestrian public footpath, and the home offers an impressive sweeping gravelled driveway, providing ample private off road parking.

Location - Ruan Minor is a delightful rural near coastal village located amongst some superb countryside, nestling beside the iconic communities of Lizard, Cadgwith, Kuggar and St Ruan. The village offers a well respected local shop, church and an excellent primary school. The iconic destination of Cadgwith must surely be considered as one of the most picturesque and authentic Cornish fishing villages, epitomising this gorgeous setting with classic colour washed thatched cottages spilling down each side of the valley to the beach below. Cadgwith is located on the eastern side of the Lizard peninsula, and enjoys mesmerising views with fishing boats drawn up the beach and out across the cove. The village has an iconic pub where the Cadgwith singers perform genuine Cornish sea shanties most Friday evenings, further enhancing this delightful charismatic venue. The nearby stunning Cornish footpath enjoys some of the most dramatic coastal scenery the UK has to offer. In recent times, the village has enjoyed much media coverage on national TV and major film work highlighting this gem of a traditional fishing village.
