THE PROPERTY A pretty detached double fronted 18th Century Cornish cottage originally part of the Trelowarren Estate boasting many original period features, large gardens and gated driveway. "Rose Cottage" has been in the same family for generations and we have been advised this is the first time the property has been offered for sale on the open market. The cottage has recently undergone a number of improvements by the current owners with plenty of scope for further renovation and landscaping of the substantial gardens.

"Rose Cottage" is a detached 3 bedroom Grade II listed property with period features including original 18th Century panelling to many of the internal walls, a Cornish Range (currently hidden), beamed ceilings and sash windows. The spacious accommodation comprises porch, sitting room, study, family dining room, kitchen, cellar, 3 bedrooms and a first floor bathroom. A staircase gives access to the loft space with potential for further accommodation (subject to any necessary consents). Superb open views are enjoyed from the rear elevation over the Trelowarren Estate.  

LOCATION The popular village of Mawgan in Meneage is situated in the The Lizard Peninsula on the fringes of the Helford River. "Rose Cottage" is located centrally within the village opposite the 14th Century Church and keen walkers will enjoy the woodland paths to Mawgan Creek and Tremayne Quay. The village is well served with a convenience store, popular public house and active village community. The nearby primary school at Garras is approximately one mile away whilst comprehensive schooling can be found at both Helston and Mullion. The market town of Helston is about five miles distant with its range of shops and recreational facilities.
