DETACHED COTTAGE WITH FABULOUS GARDENS AND THREE ACRE PADDOCK Less than four miles from the city of Truro. Enjoying total privacy with a wonderful plantsmans garden and paddock.

Allet Cottage has been the much cherished home of the vendors for over twenty years and during this time it has been improved and has evolved to now provides four double bedroom accommodation. Improvements include rewiring, the replacement of all UPVc in the last six years and the installation of eleven solar panels which provide an annual income of approximately £1,400. The property is full of charm and character and sits amongst fabulous and meticulously cared for gardens which will no doubt be of interest to those with a passion for gardening. There is a wonderful vegetable garden, terraces of perennials, a secret paved "New Zealand garden", a lawned garden interspersed with oak and willow trees and with an above ground swimming pool, as well as a paddock extending to three acres or thereabouts, the lower section of which has been planted to an orchard. There is vehicular access into the paddock from the roadway and here there is additional parking. There is also a garage with rear workshop and driveway parking for several vehicles. This is a wonderful opportunity which must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

Allet is a scattered rural community about one mile from the larger village of Shortlanesend where there is a post office and shop, pub, primary school and Methodist church. The property is also just ten minutes driving time from the city of Truro and here there is a wide range of facilities including a major shopping centre with many national multiples, the historic Cathedral, private and state schools, the Treliske hospital and the Hall for Cornwall. The nearby A30 provides easy access to the east and west of the county whilst the north Cornish coast at Perranporth is about six miles.
