Full description

A rare opportunity to purchase a piece of Cornish History in the heart of Lizard Village.
Single storey, sitting/dining/kitchen area, double bedroom, en-suite shower room. Outside enclosed patio area. Parking.

Situation - The Lizard peninsula with its lighthouse is the most southerly part of the British mainland. This traditional coastal Cornish village has a thriving community, sports football club and scuba diving schools. Local amenities include a public house, junior school, nursery, various shops, including craft and gift shops, art galleries, doctor's surgery, garage, post office, restaurants and cafés. The Lizard Point lighthouse dates back to 1751 warning shipping of the dangers of this beautiful, but treacherous, coastline and on the point itself is The Old Lifeboat House.
The ancient market town of Helston forming the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula is 12 miles distant and offers a comprehensive range of shops, supermarkets, schooling, sports centre and the Helston Community Hospital. The ancient Port of Falmouth is 23 miles distant offering further amenities along with Tremough Campus, part of the University of Exeter. The Cathedral City of Truro just 27 miles away offers a further comprehensive range of retail, banking and schooling together with the railway station connecting directly with London Paddington.

Description - The Rocket Cart House is believed to be the former rocket store used by the lifeboat crew to store lifesaving apparatus. The historic system invented by Cornishman Henry Trengrouse in1807 involved firing a rocket from the shore to the stranded ship, then fitting a cradle to bring the crewmen ashore. The equipment would be transported by a cart drawn by horses stabled at a nearby farm.
The property is now a beautifully refurbished single storey residence offering an open plan living/dining/kitchen area with French doors leading to the sun terrace and a mezzanine storage floor accessed by a wooden ladder. A double bedroom with a beautifully appointed en-suite shower room completes the accommodation. This property has planning for full residential use and is just a short walk from the stunning coastline of the Lizard Peninsula.

Outside - The property has a parking space for one vehicle and a fence enclosing an attractive external sun terrace accessed through a bespoke wooden gate.

Viewings - Strictly by prior appointment with Stags Truro office on 01872 264488.

Directions - On entering the Lizard Village take the left hand fork in the road towards Housel Bay. Follow this road around and the property will be evident on the left hand side opposite The Chapel.
