Full description

DETACHED COTTAGE WITH ANNEXE, OUTHOUSES, STABLES AND OVER 8 ACRES OF LAND Situated along a minor country road within the hamlet of Pothole on the outskirts of Sticker and enjoying total privacy. Perfect for the equestrian enthusiasts or for hobby farmers alike.

Ashley offers a rare opportunity to purchase a characterful, detached three/four bedroom cottage in this quiet location within the hamlet of Pothole on the outskirts of the village of Sticker with its range of outhouses, beautiful gardens, annexe and an equestrian holding only a short distance from the property. The cottage is full of character with open beam ceilings, deep window cills and exposed roof trusses. It is thought that at one time the property would have comprised two cottages, denoted by two staircases and two front doors, though it now serves as one family home. The accommodation briefly comprises; conservatory, living room, galley kitchen, bathroom and study/bedroom four to the ground floor with three bedrooms at first floor level. Externally there is a utility/boot room, one bedroom annexe with shower room, several outhouses, garage and gardens including an orchard. A short distance away from the property is a wonderful equestrian holding which comprises; four stables, a large hay/feed store, outdoor sand school, ample vehicular parking and turning space, and three paddocks totalling over 8 acres. Although the land is largely pasture there are several pieces of woodland and a cross country course set up in one of the paddocks meanders through some of the woodland also. This delightful property will be of interest to equestrian enthusiasts and hobby farmers alike and must be viewed to be appreciated.

Pothole is a rural hamlet made up of only a handful of properties situated on the outskirts of Sticker. Sticker is a thriving community on the western side of St. Austell and with a good selection of facilities including shop, post office and public house. A regular bus service connects Truro through to St. Austell and obviously both centres offer a wide range of amenities including supermarkets, banks, building societies, restaurants as well as being close to three popular golf courses and a main line rail link to London (Paddington). Both north and south Cornish coasts are also easily accessible.
