DETACHED HOUSE WITH LARGE GARDEN AND FAR REACHING VIEWS In a quiet non estate position within the favoured lower part of this much sought after village. Occupying a very large plot with extensive gardens and enjoying magnificent countryside views. Huge potential to enlarge if required.

Pennies is a spacious detached modern house with detached garage/workshop and fabulous enclosed gardens. The house is located within a short walk of the village shop and its elevated position allows far reaching uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside. The property has been in the same ownership for over thirty years during which time it has been well maintained with modern improvements including the addition of mains gas fired central heating, replacement double glazing and the addition of a conservatory and utility room. There is huge scope to enlarge the property if required (subject to gaining the necessary planning consent). The accommodation includes three double bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor with sitting room, conservatory, kitchen/dining room and utility downstairs. The gardens are beautifully presented and well stocked with many interesting shrubs and plants and the generous size lawns are ideal for children and pets. A tarmac driveway provides parking for three or four cars, and there is a good size detached garage. An internal viewing is essential.

Probus is a thriving community approximately six miles east of Truro and about eight miles west of St. Austell. The village boasts a good range of facilities for everyday needs including Parish Church, primary school, general stores, butchers, post office, village hall and even a fish and chip shop. A regular bus service connects both Truro and St. Austell and here there are a wider range of facilities including banks, building societies, shops, schools and main line railway link to London (Paddington). The village is also easily accessible to the Roseland Peninsula and hence a number of beaches along the south Cornish coast.
