The Property - This charming detached period country four bedroom cottage is situated within the gorgeous rural village of St Martin, which nestles within the outstanding southern Helford countryside famous for its idyllic creeks and day sailing waters.

A detached spacious country home, offering four bedrooms, two reception rooms, a triple sided conservatory overlooking the south facing rear garden, and generous off road parking facilities. This lovely home is being sold to close an estate.

The stone built property which we have been advised is approximately two hundred years old, has painted external elevations, under a pitched tiled roof, UPVC double glazed windows, and warmed by an oil fired central heating system. The home can be further warmed during the winter months by a log burning stove situated in the living room, and an impressive electric 'Aga' in the kitchen providing cooking facilities together with ambient warmth.

Upon entering the reception hallway, doors lead off to the cloakroom and the kitchen/diner. The kitchen/diner has been stylishly designed with modern storage units complemented by quality granite surfaces. An impressive electric 'Aga' provides the cooking facilities, and there is plenty of space to provide a dining table. From the kitchen, further doors lead off to a side porch, a generous character living room complemented by the stone built inglenook fireplace, and the dining room. The large south facing triple sided conservatory is accessed from the living room.

A staircase ascends from the entrance hallway to the first floor accommodation which provides four bedrooms and a refurbished shower room.

Another feature to this rustic farmhouse style residence, is the delightful enclosed south facing rear garden, which is mainly laid to lawn, together with an abundance of mature specimen plants stocked within the borders which naturally create much colour throughout the summer months. The beautifully stocked garden is a wonderful place to dine out 'al fresco' style, and naturally creates a 'sun trap' whilst affording a high degree of privacy. Garden shed, external water tap connected, and graveled patio area adjacent to the conservatory.

To the side of the property, there is a detached outbuilding which was formerly used as an apple store. This store provides storage, and has potential to extend all subject to gaining the necessary planning requisites.
