Full description


In a quiet hamlet setting opposite the village green. Beautifully presented and retaining much charm and character. Private enclosed tropical garden, parking and garage.
Sold with no chain.

Hillside is a very attractive double fronted cottage in a delightful location enjoying fabulous views over the upper reaches of Restronguet Creek with Restronguet Point and the Carrick Roads in the distance. The cottage has been in the same ownership for over thirty years during which time it has been greatly improved and is now beautifully presented and just a short stroll from the creek, public quay and slipway. The cottage was extended in the 1960's yet retains a wealth of interesting character features including original tiled floors, Victorian stained glass, traditional double glazed sliding sash windows with modern additions including a wood burning stove in the sitting room and modern kitchen and bathrooms. A sun room with utility runs the full length of the rear and there is even a view up the creek towards Devoran from the back bedroom. The cottage benefits from private parking as well as a single garage and is being sold with no onward chain. The gardens of Hillside are delightful and are a feature of the property. They have been imaginatively landscaped and are very private and well stocked with many unusual plants, including palm trees, bamboos, tree fern and yucca. The accommodation includes a fitted kitchen, sitting room, dining room, study or third bedroom, bathroom, rear sun room, utility, shower room and two double bedrooms on the first floor both with fabulous water views. For those wanting a larger property it would be very easy to extend Hillside above the single storey section to provide additional bedrooms and bathroom subject to gaining the necessary consent. The owners have looked into this and we have sketch plans available for inspection in the Truro office.

The hamlets of Point and Penpol combine to form a residential community about five miles to the south of Truro. Restronguet Creek is very popular with boating enthusiasts and provides easy access to the sailing waters of the Fal Estuary (Carrick Roads). A public slipway is within a short walk of the cottage, local facilities are available in Carnon Downs (about one and a half miles) whilst the Cathedral city of Truro provides an excellent shopping centre and includes a main line railway station to London (Paddington) and a good selection of restaurants and bars. The Hall for Cornwall provides year round entertainment and there are golf courses at nearby Killiow and Truro. The historic port of Falmouth is about eight miles away. Point is also at one end of the Bissoe cycle trail which runs along the creek to Devoran through Bissoe and eventually leads to the north Cornish coast at Portreath.
