Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An imaginatively extended and sympathetically modernised three/four bedroomed, detached cottage found within a wonderful, unspoilt and rural hamlet setting. Enjoying a private, peaceful position, the cottage has many saleable attributes and stands within most generous, well stocked private gardens with double garaging and hardstanding facilities.

Benefitting from an oil fired central heating system, double glazing and some triple glazing, our clients also own their own solar panels, and to the side of the cottage is a detached studio which is double glazed and has under floor electric heating.

Approached by a generous entrance porch with a stable door, the cottage has a lounge with solid oak flooring and a wood burner, there is an archway to a garden room with travertine flooring and floor to ceiling triple glazed windows and adjoining here is a most useful cloakroom/wet room/shower room.

Further accommodation includes a lovely kitchen with travertine flooring and an oil fired Rayburn which runs the central heating system and is used for cooking and hot water. This is within a tiled recess with side slate shelving. Within the kitchen, there is also a centre oak topped island which houses an integrated hob, oven, and sink. To one side, there is stool space. Adjoining the kitchen is a spacious utility room and via the kitchen, one also finds a dining room with floor to ceiling triple glazes windows overlooking the gardens, travertine flooring with under floor heating, bi-fold French doors to the gardens and side stone walling with granite quoins. In addition, there is an open window area/serving hatch with a slate sill and a further granite lintel above.

At first floor level, there is a two tiered landing, the first section leading to the master bedroom. The remainder finds a family bathroom with a rainwater shower and additional attachment over the bath with a slide glass screen and bedrooms two and three. The fourth bedroom, at present, is used as a further reception room and therefore, offers much flexibility. It has double glazed French doors to the garden and a wood burner with a slate hearth.

Externally, the gardens are principally to three sides and include terraced areas, decking, lawns, herbaceous borders and vegetable/fruit growing patches. There is also a Wendy House in the front garden.

For purchasers looking to acquire a lovely character home within with a most tranquil private setting, this is a wonderful opportunity.

Seworgan is a hamlet of only a few homes set amongst rural farmland and close at hand is the village of Constantine which has two village stores, a primary school, a church, a doctors surgery, hairdressers, public house, bowls club, football team, cricket ground and community hall, all of which provides an excellent village community. Constantine is surrounded by picturesque walks and is close to the Helford River and 1.5 miles away is Port Navas with its pretty creek which leads into the Helford Passage.

Helston Town Centre provides shopping and banking facilities and further junior and senior schooling.
