Full description


Situated in a wonderful valley setting on the outskirts of Carnon Downs and
enjoying a peaceful location at the end of a lane. The end of a terrace of three houses.
Plenty of off road parking and excellent range of out buildings including a superb 42' workshop/shed.

Creek Cottage offers a rare opportunity to purchase a semi detached character cottage in a wonderful semi rural position on the edge of the village together with a very useful range of outbuildings and plenty of off road parking. The property itself is well presented with double glazed windows and an oil fired central heating system as well as good quality kitchen. The current owner has created a self contained one bedroom annexe by converting an outbuilding approximately 5 years ago. Externally there are very pleasant gardens to the front of the property together with a large patio and terraced area which enjoys a very sunny aspect. A particular feature of the property is the large amount of off road parking space together with a very useful range of substantial outbuildings and in particular a 42' long workshop/shed.

The village of Carnon Downs is well served with its own local amenities including post office, food store, chapel, village hall and regular bus connections to Truro. On the edge of the village there is a golf course and it is also well placed for access to the creek and sailing facilities of the Fal Estuary. The city of Truro is approximately 4/5 miles away where there is a fine shopping centre with many national multiples as well as a rail connection and various social and leisure facilities.
