A charming and well presented character cottage located in a tucked away position yet within easy walking distance to all the local shops and amenities that Penryn has to offer.
An internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the newly refurbished standard of the accommodation, which offers a gas fired combi boiler for an efficient heating system, plus a wood burning stove in the kitchen. There are character features such as exposed stone walls and cottage style gardens with a fully insulated outbuilding with wired network and power, currently used as a home office studio by the present vendors. The property benefits from fibre to the premises.
On entering the spacious kitchen/dining room, it is apparent that a great deal of care and attention to detail has been created to make this a pleasant characterful living space with white washed natural stone wall and a step down to a feature open larder space incorporating a recess for the boiler. A good range of storage cupboards and work surfaces with a particular feature being the wood burning stove set within a recess with granite hearth. A staircase then ascends to the first floor accommodation.
The first floor open galleried landing gives access to the three principal rooms and there is a sizeable attic with good headroom, partially boarded. The lounge has a feature white washed stone wall with a pleasant outlook over the garden. The double bedroom has a feature wooden floor and Georgian style sash window and recess for hanging space. The bathroom features a white suite with panelled bath having a mixer tap with shower attachment, tiled surround and shower screen, wash hand basin and low flush WC, and wooden floor boards. What is particularly unique as well as the garden is that the property has the benefit of an off-road parking space accessed at the rear of the property.
The cottage style garden is south facing and is a sheltered suntrap. It is extremely private for Penryn, and is well stocked with shrubs, bulbs and fruit. The garden studio has a separate consumer unit, with power and wired network. It is fully insulated, with reclaimed maple flooring and has a separate wood burning stove. There is also a useful garden shed, and two wood stores.
Penryn is a historic market town being situated on the Penryn River approximate one mile from the town of Falmouth.
Penryn has in the past operated as a busy harbour which landed granite and tin to be shipped to various parts of the country and abroad. Today the town offers a good range of independent retail shops catering very well the day-to-day needs yet retaining much of its own historic heritage.
The town is recognised as a conservation area and has a good mix of historic buildings, some dating back as far as Tudor times.
The nearby train station operates to Truro being the main centre in Cornwall for business and commerce as well as Falmouth, with its maritime museum and harbour.
