Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located in a rural but not isolated location, a detached south facing three bedroom authentic Cornish cottage with level surrounding gardens and with the benefit of a separate paddock extending to approximately one acre.

A detached unspoilt traditional Cornish cottage with more recent extended accommodation at the rear, situated in a quiet rural hamlet in mid Cornwall adjacent to the Saint’s Way which originates from Padstow and terminates in Fowey.  The property although modernised in recent years still retains much of its inherent character including original Cornish fireplaces, open beamed ceilings, ledge and brace internal doors and exposed ‘A’ to the first floor bedrooms.  Recent additions have included a ground floor bathroom and separate shower room and rear study.  Externally the cottage has a long sweeping lawn at the front bordered by a low Cornish stone wall to the parish road and on the western boundary is a separate paddock believed to extend to approximately one acre.  This the first time that Wheel Cross Cottage has been on the market for approximately 60 years and although it has benefitted from some modernisation including inset double glazed windows and upgraded shower rooms, bathrooms, etc., there is undoubted potential to carry out further upgrading to the purchaser’s requirements.

Fenton Pits is a small but scattered hamlet close to the scheduled ancient monument of Helman Tor which is currently a nature reserve and is perfectly located for easy access for this area of mid Cornwall which is unspoilt yet accessible to most major points in the County.  The nearest local facilities are at Lanivet, approximately 3 ½ miles which is an active village with its own Church, public house, etc. or alternatively the ancient Stannary town of Lostwithiel and Bodmin are both within approximately 4 ½  miles.  Equi-distant between both north and south coasts the property is easily accessible to the main A30 trunk road which is approximately 5 miles giving quick and convenient access to and from the County.
