Full description

We asked our Vendor why they chose their home as the place for them. Their response was simple. Where else could you find a property full of character with three front doors and two independent staircases.
Today, as they venture to pastures overseas they offer their much-loved home as a chain free proposition to buyers who will understand and appreciate it as one of the villages true gems.
An early C-19th former shop and two dwellings, now conformed into one unique residence on an oblique corner site formerly known as the site of St Day Cross and listed as Grade II by English Heritage in 1989 for its historical importance. Whitewashed hung slate tiles surround the front and immediately set the tone of all that is to come. Your gaze will be drawn to the three entrances that give a true representation of its width-size. The old shop entrance has a chamfered corner and a wide 6-pane display window. The other doorways have pilaster jambs under a plain fascia and simple cornices with egg-and-dart decoration. On the far left corner wall sits the Cornish coat of arms. The coat of arms of the Duke of Cornwall is a Crusader shield on which are displayed 15 golden bezants (gold coins) in the shape of a triangle.
St Day is a village where community spirit sits at its core. The choice of property types has meant that people of all ages are able to live in the village, the majority of which are residential owned or let. This all-year round population has helped the village retain its eclectic range of shops that include independent butchers, community artists, general stores, a post office, public houses, places of worship and small guest houses.
Travelling slightly further afield, the cathedral city of Truro is 8 miles away, Falmouth town with its world famous harbour is just over 9 miles and the historical mining town of Redruth, just over 2 miles. The latter also has a mainline station on the Penzance to London Paddington line.
