Full description


Tucked away in a very quiet location on the outskirts of Bolingey and within a mile of the north Cornish coast at Perranporth and its famous sandy beach. In need of total refurbishment but offering huge potential. Large enclosed garden enjoying distant sea glimpses and views over the valley.

A very attractive semi detached period cottage tucked away in a quiet setting within the sought after village of Bolingey just a mile inland from the north Cornish coast at Perranporth. The property is in need of complete refurbishment but offers huge potential and has many wonderful period features that will appeal to many - not surprisingly it is Grade II Listed. The accommodation is light and spacious with high ceilings and well proportioned rooms. A feature is the fabulous inglenook fireplace with clome oven in the sitting room, there are exposed beam ceilings on the ground floor and the first floor bedrooms enjoy far reaching rural views. There is even a sea glimpse from the top of the garden. The cottage is thought to be approximately 200 years old and is likely to have originally been thatched. Internal work was started on the cottage many years ago, all of the plaster has been stripped off the walls, kitchen and bathrooms have been removed and the floor boards taken away from the room above the kitchen. The cottage was listed in October 1988 when it was inspected from outside and the listing is available for inspection from the agents. The property is suitable for cash purchasers only and will be ideal for builders, developers or those looking to create a most interesting home. The accommodation includes three reception rooms at ground floor level along the front of the property with two rooms beyond and three double bedrooms at first floor level. There are two staircases and therefore it is probable that in the past it was two dwellings. Adjoining the cottage is a very useful barn 28' x 12' and this has further potential to create garaging/workshop space. The gardens are located at the rear of the cottage and are somewhat overgrown but again offer huge potential, there are far reaching views over the valley with glimpses of the sea at Perranporth from the top.

Bolingey is a popular village within walking distance of Perranporth and its famous golden sandy beach. It has a popular public house and is a quiet village with many interesting houses in a valley setting. Perranporth boasts a variety of shops for daily needs including a wide range of beach shops and cafes serving the tourists and locals who come to enjoy the spectacular three mile long sandy beach. Truro is approximately nine miles away and is the capital of the county renowned for its excellent shopping centre, fine selection of restaurants and bars, Hall for Cornwall for year round entertainment and main line railway link to London (Paddington).
