Roche is a popular village approximately 6 miles north of St. Austell and just over 2 miles from the main A30 trunk road providing easy access to the east and west of the County, and the City of Truro which is approximately 20 miles away.

The village has good local shops including a convenience store, butchers, green grocers, various take-aways, two public houses, a highly regarded primary school, doctor's surgery, chemist, hair dressers, launderette and a popular sports and social complex. There are many fine walks to be enjoyed in the vicinity. The renowned Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are both within easy commuting distance. St. Austell town centre has excellent shopping facilities, schools and mainline railway link to London Paddington. The popular holiday resort of Newquay and the harbour town of Fowey with its excellent maritime facilities are both 13 miles distant.

The village is particularly well placed for easy travelling to spectacular stretches of both the north and south Cornwall coastline. The village derives its' name from the remarkable mass of rock and chapel known as Roche Rock, a historic landmark within the County. Legend has it that a hermit once lived in the Chapel. Jan Tregeagle is also reputed to have sought refuge in the Chapel having been given the task of emptying the Dozmary Pool with a leaking limpet shell!

The property comprises a detached chalet style bungalow which has been altered and extended over the years and now needs updating and improvement allowing the prospective purchaser the opportunity of altering/modernizing the accommodation to their own satisfaction and specification, subject to any appropriate planning permission etc.

The flexible spacious accommodation with central heating and double glazing comprises 4-5 bedrooms on two floors. The Bungalow is set well back off the road off Higher Trerank Lane, a minor no through Council road on the outskirts of the village, and there is ample parking in front of the property and a large garage.

The property is larger than it appears when first viewed from the road and most definitely requires a detailed interior inspection to appreciate all that it has to offer. The bungalow, garden, drive and outbuildings extend to 0.55 of an acre or thereabouts.
