Full description


Fully renovated and extended cottage set within beautiful mature grounds and with total privacy.
Versatile arrangement of accommodation with potential for main residence
and single storey self contained annexe (subject to any necessary consent).

This interesting and very attractive property lies within the scattered rural community of Penstraze convenient for the villages of Chacewater and Threemilestone. Penstraze Cottage has access from a minor road about half a mile from the A390 and less than two miles from the A30 which provides easy access to all parts of the county. The dwelling is essentially an old Cornish cottage which has been renovated and extended and whilst a large single storey wing presently incorporates a snooker room and associated "entertainment area" there is plenty of scope to convert this into a self contained wing for a granny annexe or possible letting unit (subject to any necessary consent). The whole property is secluded in mature grounds and focuses to a large ornamental pond. Viewing essential.

Penstraze is situated approximately four miles west of Truro but everyday facilities are available in the nearby villages of Chacewater and Threemilestone and include a primary school, post office, general stores, public house, fish and chip shop, doctors surgery, church and chapel. Truro itself is renowned for its excellent shopping centre with a wide selection of banks, building societies, shops, public and private schools, many restaurants and of course the main line railway link to London (Paddington).

The cottage has part stone and part white painted rendered elevations with contrasting "Georgian style" windows.
