Full description

3 ACRE SMALLHOLDING On the edge of Mevagissey and comprising four bedroom Edwardian house, double garage and workshop, gardens with orchard, two level paddocks and stables. In need of upgrading and total redecoration but not to be missed.

Roseverth is situated along a quiet country lane, affording the property's rural feel, and yet it is within walking distance of Mevagissey harbour and is literally on the edge of the village. The small holding has been in our clients' ownership for around twenty five years and is now available due to a need to downsize. Whilst well cared for and well maintained over the years its is fair to say the house is now in need of general upgrading and total redecoration throughout, but nevertheless offers a wonderful opportunity.

The house was built circa 1900 and was later extended at the rear, with a conservatory added to the front aspect in recent years. Windows are double glazed - many are UPVc sliding sash windows - and oil fired central heating is provided by an Alpha Range in the kitchen. From the first floor there are sea glimpses and briefly the accommodation comprises, to the ground floor; entrance porch and hall, cloakroom, kitchen/dining room, utility, sitting room (formerly two rooms) and conservatory with four bedrooms and a shower room at first floor level.

In all the grounds extend to three acres or thereabouts, currently split to provide two level paddocks as well as gardens which include an orchard. A two stall stable is situated to the side of one of the paddocks and there is a double garage as well as a large workshop. Ideal for equestrian use or hobby farming - viewing essential.

Mevagissey is well known to tourists as a fishing village on the south Cornish coast and is particularly noteworthy for its harbour and quaint fishermans cottages in the narrow streets. Roseverth stands on the outer limits of the village, well away from the main tourist area and approached from a minor country road. There are many local shops and facilities within Mevagissey, St. Austell lies about five miles north and the city of Truro with its Cathedral and fine shopping centre is about fifteen miles away (about half an hours driving distance). Notable attractions of the area include the Lost Gardens of Heligan (about three miles from the property) and the Eden Project which is just east of St. Austell. The whole area is recognised as being of outstanding natural beauty and much of the nearby coastline is owned and protected by the National Trust.
