General Remarks And Location - This interesting property has been passed down through generations of the same family since 1891. At first glance it would appear as a modest traditional cottage but being constructed on a hillside site and with the rooms arranged over four floors there is a surprising level of accommodation. It is set within the Tregony Conservation Area in the lower part of Tregony Hill and at the end of a short terrace of cottages. A small outbuilding (former dairy) perched on an outcrop of rock is an iconic feature as you enter the village.

Internally the accommodation comprises sitting room, kitchen, dining room, 4 bedrooms, bathroom and utility. There is also an integral store and further storage areas including an outside wc. There is only garden space to the front of the cottage.

Tregony is a thriving community, sometimes referred to as the "Gateway to the Roseland", and with local facilities including a post office/shop, pub, churches and both primary and secondary schools. The village is easily accessible to the whole of the Roseland Peninsula and hence very much a centre for tourism during the summer months. The city of Truro is about seven miles and St. Austell slightly further. The village also has the benefit of a regular bus service. The harbourside villages of Portloe and Portscatho are each about four and seven miles distant, and St Mawes is about 11 miles to the south.

The Cottage - The original part of the cottage is largely stone built and rendered whilst the rear portion which was added in the mid 1970's is of conventional cavity block and very substantial. Most windows have replacement double glazing but fundamentally the property now requires refurbishment and updating. It affords tremendous potential and could possibly be sub-divided to incorporate a self-contained suite.

In greater detail the accommodation comprises (all measurements are approximate):
