Full description

Hilltop Cottage offers versatile accommodation which would suit a larger or extended family and it benefits from generous sized rooms throughout, there are open-beam ceilings and the ground floor is arranged to give a double size bedroom with its own sitting room suitable for a dependant relative if desired.

The overall accommodation consists of four double size bedrooms, three reception rooms and one will find a bathroom on the ground floor (there is also a bathroom and WC on the first floor). The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of cottage style units and leading on from this is a generous utility room. To the side of the cottage is a boiler room/storage area which offers additional space for freezers etc.

To the outside the gardens surrounding the property are mainly laid to lawn and a sweeping driveway leads to comfortable parking for six vehicles.  Well screened from passing traffic there are mature trees and shrubs to the borders and to one side there is a well with a seating area surrounding it.  The rear of the cottage is south facing and incorporates a large sun terrace.  The double size garage which has been converted into a games room is attached to the property and with minimal work could be returned to a garage if required.

Within a mile of the North Coast, the nearest town is Redruth which is some three miles distant and here there is schooling for all ages, a variety of shops and a main line Railway Station.  The A30 trunk road is only a mile and a half distant.

Truro, the administrative centre of Cornwall is only twelve miles away and here one will find an eclectic mix of local and national retail outlets together with a wider range of quality places to eat and drink.

In our opinion, rarely do properties come to the market which offer such versatile and quality accommodation, we would advise an early appointment to view to really appreciate what this cottage has to offer.
