The residence is further warmed during the winter months by two impressive fireplaces situated within the living room (offering an open fireplace) and the kitchen/diner which has a multi fuel stove. The property is further economically supplemented by PV solar panels (fully owned by our vendor) which are installed on the roof, together with rubber solar panels which heat the swimming pool. It should be noted that our vendor has informed ourselves that the current EPC rating was done before the PV solar panels were installed.

Upon entering the entrance hallway, doors lead off to the generous living room featuring an impressive brick fireplace, bedroom five, cloakroom, dining room, a stunning quality fitted kitchen featuring a central island and a character stone fireplace. The versatile home also offers another kitchen/utility room of generous proportions. The first floor's impressive accommodation offers four double bedrooms (three fitted with en suites) together with a generous four piece bathroom suite.

Location - The rural village of Porkellis is surrounded by beautiful countryside, lies approximately five miles north east of Helston, and offers a highly regarded public house together with a village hall and nearby bus stop. The village is also within an easy drive to Falmouth with all its amenities on offer. The nearby historic market town of Helston stands at the gateway of the Lizard Peninsula which is Britain's most southerly point, which gives access to some of the most dramatic coastal scenery and beaches the UK has to offer.

Helston has an eclectic array of individual shops, well regarded schools (both junior and senior) sports centre, doctor's surgeries, pharmacies and a cinema.
