Property Description

Full description

UNDER OFFER Located along a quiet byway with stunning countryside views all around, beautiful detached cottage situated in gardens of approx. 1/3 acre in a rural location with no near neighbours yet only 1/2 mile to Goonhavern, packed with character features.


Situated on its own along a quiet byway this stunning cottage is believed in part to date back to around 1600. The cottage was built on the edge of what was then the Reen Common although there is no documentation that confirms its exact date of construction. Records dating back to around 1850 show it as a tenanted small holding. This quintessentially Cornish cottage has been sympathetically extended during it's life with planning previously approved for a ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room extension. The cottage has a large double garage with attached store room and large attic space which would make an ideal annexe subject to the necessary permissions. There is also a detached single garage and log store. With the exception of three very old porthole style windows the cottage is double glazed throughout and the oil fired Aga in the kitchen is used for cooking and hot water. There are many character features including ledge and brace latch doors to the majority of rooms, low open beamed ceilings and areas of exposed stonework in the older parts of the cottage. The cottage has private drainage and private water from a well in the garden and as such pays no water rates!

Situated in Reen less than half a mile walk from Goonhavern and less than two miles, or a five minute drive from the coastal resort of Perranporth.

AGENTS NOTE : In February 2014 planning permission was approved for the addition of a ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room. Planning reference number PA14/00547. This planning application has now lapsed.
