Full description

Nestled within around one third of an acre in a semi-rural hamlet, our Vendor's home exudes a rustic charm that a buyer would hope for in a property of its age. Ceiling beams, wood floors, a cast iron stove and fireplace work in harmony with a layout conducive to the practicalities of modern living and well-proportioned rooms balance with the outside space to continue the enjoyment of the sylvan setting.
First impressions are usually the most important and as you enter through the gated driveway you eye-line will be drawn to the main lawn and substantial garage that we believe sets our Vendors home apart from others. Tree-line stone walls define the boundaries and provide seclusion from the lane and there is ample parking with a 28' long side port and double-width garage, make this a genuinely tempting proposition.
The nearby towns of Camborne and Redruth offer everyday shops and local public transport links with Truro just over 14 miles away. For those travelling in and out of Cornwall, both towns have stations on the Penzance to London Paddington main railway line and Newquay Airport is just over 26 miles.
The Great Flat Lode is a 7.5 mile circular trail in the heart of the historic Camborne-Redruth mining district and is used for walking, cycling and horse riding. Centred on the impressive hill of Carn Brea, the trail is named after the ore vein which was the centre of the tin mining activity here.

We believe the grounds are one of the key reasons why someone would want to buy our Vendors home. With grounds totaling just over one third of an acre, the main lawn is surrounded by tree-lined Cornish hedge boundaries with a southerly aspect. A patio terrace just off the conservatory enjoys its vista over the main lawn and a second smaller lawn with a patio and greenhouse is border by stone walls and could be the ideal spot for a market garden. A third triangular-shaped lawn is located at the rear of the cottage, but is no longer directly accessible after the reconstruction of a stone wall and the construction of the conservatory. On a raised area in between the cottage and garage sits a timber shed that has been insulated and utilised as a private office.
