General Remarks And Location - This property has been a cherished family home for many years. It has been modernised and updated including the provision of a comprehensive gas central heating system but internal appointments have become dated and warrant replacement and upgrading along with full redecoration. The house is in effect the front portion of a much larger house which was divided into two dwellings many years ago. However it is surprisingly private with generous garden and grounds which are attractively wooded.
The hamlet of Roseworthy is an historic rural community with agricultural and mining traditions dating back to medieval times. It is nestled in the picturesque Roseworthy Valley and is bisected by the Roseworthy Stream, the far western boundary between Camborne and Hayle.
Roseworthy is ideally placed for both the commuter and tourist alike. The north and south Cornish coasts are both easily accessible with the famous golden sands and surfing beaches at Gwithian being less than 3 miles away. The seaside town of Hayle is 4 miles away with the renowned fishing village of St Ives about 10 miles away and Penzance 12 miles. In the other direction, the bustling town of Camborne and access to the A30 is about 2 miles distant whilst the Cathedral City of Truro is approx 14 miles away.
Public transport links are excellent. Mainline rail stations at Camborne, St Erth, Hayle and Penzance provide frequent services both within the county and on to Exeter, Plymouth, London (Paddington) and across the country. A frequent main bus route service runs from Roseworthy to Penzance, St Ives and Truro whilst the countrywide National Express bus service runs regularly from Camborne Bus Station to London and elsewhere.
There are golf courses at Tehidy Country Park on the outskirts of Camborne and at Lelant outside Hayle whilst the 19 acre Heartlands World heritage Site at Pool hosts regular fairs and exhibitions in its parklands and botanical gardens and has extensive children's play areas.
Local shopping services are very good with two first class farm shops and a Marks & Spencer store merely minutes away.
The House - Roseworthy House is a particularly attractive building and classic of its period in this part of Cornwall. It is notable for its deep georgian style sash windows, granite quoins and lintels to door and window openings together with a substantial cut-granite plinth and projecting granite string course along its frontage. Internally there are high ceilings, panelled doors and a lovely decorative ceiling cornice in the drawing room.
