Full description

Situated in a lovely peaceful location, this charming three bedroom detached character home offers lovely substantial gardens including a custom purpose built chalet successfully used for Airbnb, a large hot tub, poly tunnels, fruit trees and parking for several vehicles. It is double glazed and this is complemented by oil heating and a multi fuel stove.

Pencoys Cottage really is a charming detached home carefully modernised over the years with modern facilities but retaining some character features that you would expect with such a property. There are three bedrooms with the master having an en-suite and a family bathroom to the first floor. To the ground floor there is a lovely sitting room together with a kitchen/diner having modern facilities. Heating is via an oil fired system and this is complemented by double glazing. The property also has a fine focal granite fireplace with an inset Esse multi fuel stove/cooker. Some of the flooring is laminate and tiled and the master bedroom appears to have a parquet floor. Externally it sits in a rectangular paddock. A driveway leads to parking and turning for several vehicles and then gates lead to a further parking area that leads on to the main garden including three poly tunnels and also has its own standing stones. The owners have very successfully used for Airbnb a lovely purpose custom built chalet with a built-in double bed, a small sitting area and a basin. Adjoining is a shower room and to the side is a wc. A large hot tub is also provided and this is heated by a wood burner. There are three poly tunnels each 15' x 12' and a lovely willow knitted arched pathway leading to a very secluded and peaceful sitting out area. Fruit trees and bushes are also provided. The option of an extra small touring van is available should it be required. Tucked away in a small no-through road, it is within a level distance of bus services, a public house and at the centre of Four Lanes village there is a general store plus a well regarded primary and junior school. Redruth is within approximately three miles with the A30 perhaps two miles further and the large out of town multiples are available at Pool, which is some three miles distant as you pass the famous Countryman public house.

Outside - 3.66m (12) - The property is approached via a shared driveway until you reach two gates. Ahead of you this opens into parking facilities for probably four to five cars and there is a STORE 3.60m x 1.20m (11'9 x 3'11). There is a gateway owned by the council whereby facilities are available for them to pass over the land for occasional churchyard maintenance. There is a side gate leading to the front garden of the cottage which has a METAL SHED 2.44m x 1.83m (8' x 6') , a lovely sheltered pergola and to one corner there is an oil storage tank. Another set of stout double gates lead to parking facilities for several vehicles and this is mostly used for the Airbnb customers or extra visitors perhaps. There is a SHED, a STORE 2.44m x 2.44m (8' x 8') and a SUMMERHOUSE 2.13m x 1.52m (7' x 5'). Beyond this is a large rectangular plot being laid to lawn with a stone circle and quite a profusion of fruit trees and bushes including plums, pears, apples and hazelnuts. To the right hand side is an enclosed area that houses the CUSTOM BUILT WOODEN CHALET ROOM with a built-in bed, a small log burner and a Belfast sink. To the side there is a WASH ROOM 2.13m x 2.13m (7' x 7') with a propane bottled gas fired shower. This is all timber lined and would make a lovely sauna as well. ADJOINING WC 1.52m x 2.44m (5' x 8'), there is a solar panel and a compost toilet. To the side of the enclosed area there is a fantastic HOT TUB heated by a wood burner. Outside power is also provided with several sockets. This part of the property really is fantastic and in addition to Airbnb purposes, relatives would love it and indeed the owners have on occasions taken themselves there for a change of scenery. There are three substantial POLY TUNNELS each 4.57m x 3.66m (15' x 12') and a lovely willow arched pathway that leads to a secluded and private sitting out area and here you feel away from it all. Standing stones have been added to the lawn and to one side there is an extra parking area with a small touring van which is available if required. The cottage mainly borders onto Pencoys Church and the driveway which for the most part is shared by a few other properties, leads out onto Opies Row and then the main road.

To summarise, this really is an excellent property, we have take many photos for you to grasp what is on offer here but we do strongly recommend an inspection to fully appreciate what the owners have achieved.

Directions - From our office in Redruth take the main road towards Helston and into the village of Four Lanes. Pass the church on your left and after approximately one hundred yards by an electric pole there is a small turning which on the front side says Opies Row. Please be careful as this is quite easy to miss. Take the next left by the property with the gas bottles and go straight ahead to Pencoys Cottage. If required, a member of our staff is quite happy to meet you outside Pencoys Church and show you the access arrangements.
