General Remarks And Location - In many respects this property epitomises the perfect Roseland Cottage. Pedlars is a very attractive building with mellow stone elevations highlighted by massive granite quoins and brick window arches and small pane casement windows. It is at the end of a row of just three cottages and set alongside the minor road passing through Ruan Lanihorne, facing south and with a lovely garden stretching to the edge of the small river running into the tidal creek. It has been a cherished holiday retreat for the current owners for many years and is now reluctantly offered for sale due to failing health.
The cottage has been well maintained over the years and comprises a large sitting room and kitchen on the ground floor with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom above. There are typical character features including beamed ceilings. exposed stone and also a clome oven. Heating includes a wood burner in the sitting room and several electric storage radiators.
Close to the cottage there is a superb detached garage with forecourt parking.
