Full description

A CHARMING THREE BEDROOM CHARACTER COTTAGE WITH LOVELY VIEWS OVER COUNTRYSIDE TOWARDS LOSTWITHIEL. Set in glorious gardens with a stream and large pond. Ample parking and a car port. Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is one of a small number of cottages situated in a tucked away position, yet only 5 minutes drive and a 20 minute walk from Lostwithiel town centre. The cottage boasts a wealth of period features including slate flagged floors, stripped pine doors and deep silled windows. It benefits from gas-fired central heating and majority double-glazing. The property faces south and stands in over an acre of beautiful grounds, giving a marvellous feeling of peace and tranquillity. The extensive front and side gardens provide several seating areas to maximise enjoyment from sunshine throughout the day and into the evening. There are further lovely natural gardens with a stream running through, which provide a perfect playground for children and adults alike to enjoy the outdoor environment. To the side of the house there is a generous natural area, and here is found a large spring-fed wildlife pond full of lily pads, water plants, and fish and is surrounded by wild flowers. The current owner had sections of this area under cultivation in the past, with productive vegetable plots and soft fruit cages. There are extensive country side views all around.

Formerly the ancient capital of the County, Lostwithiel, a Transition Town, occupies a pretty valley setting and is regarded as one of Cornwalls most attractive small towns. There are shops for most day to day needs, together with a very active community centre, doctors surgery, and access to the beautiful waters of the Fowey River. Two local schools provide education for primary school age children. There are several excellent golf courses within easy reach, many world class gardens are to be found in the immediate area and the fascinating Eden Project with its futuristic biomes is just a few miles away. There are good road links to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway links to London, Paddington, can be made locally at Lostwithiel. There are flights to London from Newquay .
