In the heart of this sought after village.
Refurbished and substantially extended in recent years in a very sympathetic way and retaining much charm and character.
Large enclosed garden and parking for four/five cars.
Viewing absolutely essential.

Mervelle Cottage is a traditional double fronted village house which is situated in the heart of Probus village yet secluded in a tucked away and quiet location. The property has been completely renovated and significantly extended by the present owners in recent years and now offers spacious family size accommodation with large rooms and a feeling of light and space throughout. The improvements have been made in a very sympathetic way, the house still has many character features and the new rear double storey extension flows from the older part. The front elevation has been lime rendered, two dormer windows have been created at first floor level and this fits in with the theme of the street and is similar to neighbouring properties. The house benefits from mains gas fired central heating with brand new plumbing, electrics, kitchen and bathrooms and really must be viewed internally. The accommodation includes a very large sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom, three double bedrooms and family bathroom with bath and separate shower. All of the bedrooms are doubles and the master has an en-suite shower room. At the rear is a large enclosed garden with gently sloping lawn and a large sun terrace providing plenty of sitting out space. There is a single garage and a driveway provides additional parking for two cars. The current owners also park two cars on the front gravel area if necessary.

Probus is a thriving community approximately six miles east of Truro and a little further west of St. Austell. The village has an excellent range of everyday facilities including Parish Church, public house, primary school, farm shop, post office, village hall, restaurants and even a fish and chip shop. A very regular bus service connects to both St. Austell and Truro and here there are a wider range of facilities including banks, building societies, schools, colleges and main line railway link to London (Paddington). The village is also easily accessible to the picturesque Roseland Peninsula and many of the beaches along the south Cornish coast.
