Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An impeccable four bedroomed detached cottage offering immense charm and character. Beautifully presented throughout, the property occupies generous private grounds with a southerly rear aspect.

Constructed, we understand, circa 1830, and modernised during recent years, the cottage has granite quoins and lintels and slate window sills. Benefitting from an oil fired central heating system and double glazed windows, the majority of which are of sash design, the cottage provides light, airy accommodation with curved walls and exposed beamed ceilings and deep windows sills to a number of rooms. Included within the sale are solar panels which are installed to the rear and these are owned by our clients and provide free electricity with an income of approximately £2,000 per annum.

Approached via an entrance porch, there is a lovely library/reception hallway with fitted book casing, a dining room with tongue and groove timber boarded flooring and French doors to the rear garden, a kitchen/breakfast room with polished blue pearl granite working surfaces and an aga, as well as integrated appliances including a fridge and dishwasher whilst also having attractive slate tiled flooring. Close at hand is a side porch and utility room and via an inner lobby, there is a sitting room with a wood burner within a stone and slate fireplace. Adjoining here is a superb garden room/additional reception room with exposed beams. This again has French doors to the rear garden.

To the side of the library and reception hallway, is a side hallway which leads to two double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a roll top bath and a separate shower cubicle and also off the side hallway is a freezer/store room and studio which was formerly a single garage. This section of accommodation does provide potential for an integral annexe if so required.

At first floor level, there is the master bedroom with an extensive range of wardrobes, the fourth bedroom and a shower room.

The generous grounds are approached via a curved brick paved driveway which leads to a car port which has an attached veranda providing covered external dining. The rear gardens adjoin farmland and have various sitting out areas, a large rockery with a water feature, a covered pergola area for additional sitting out and a shaped lawn with a side summer house with a timber gate leading to a large vegetable growing area with a polytunnel and two greenhouses. The gardens enjoy a high degree of privacy and have been extremely well tended.

Frogpool adjoins Cusgarne and has a local public house and a bus service to Truro and Redruth with connections to Falmouth. Cusgarne has a junior school and an organic farm shop.
