A CHARACTERFUL CORNISH COTTAGE IN A BEAUTIFUL SETTING A fully refurbished and extended detached cottage together with a detached annexe set within a large garden of approximately one acre. Quiet rural location on the very edge of Truro. Four bedroom main accommodation plus one bedroom annexe. Grade II Listed.

General Remarks And Location - Part of Newmill Cottage is known to be about 300 years old and was once believed to be two smaller adjacent cottages. Over the years the property has been carefully extended and remodelled but there is no loss of character and the ancient feel of the old dwelling is still very evident. Character features abound by way of slate flag flooring (now with underfloor heating), deep window seats, inglenook fireplaces and traditional beam ceilings. It has been the cherished family home of the current owner for the past twenty five years.

Today Newmill Cottage affords family size four bedroom accommodation and there is also a one bedroom annexe, ideal for a dependent relative. The whole sits within a large mature garden of about one acre in a beautiful rural valley on the very edge of Truro and with frontage to the Kenwyn River.

The hamlets of Newmill and Boscolla are part of the parish of Kenwyn and are within a mile of the built-up environs of Truro. However the setting is completely rural and undisturbed and perfect for those wanting a quiet country retreat but with easy access to the city and its varied amenities and less than a mile of the Treliske hospital.

The Hall for Cornwall is also a popular venue providing all year round entertainment and other cultural facilities include the Royal Cornwall Museum and the historic Cathedral.
