3 bedroom detached house for saleFenton Pits, Bodmin, PL30
- Rural but not isolated
- Detached 3 bedroom character cottage
- Level gardens with separate paddock extanding 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.
