The Property - An opportunity to purchase a five bedroom, three reception room, two bath/shower room, granite and stone built, detached traditional Cornish longhouse of huge charm and charisma, nestling within a charming cluster of character houses, and nearby to the quintessential village of Ruan Minor. The property has approximately 4.6 acres of land, private off road parking, and offers huge scope for further improvement (subject to relevant planning approvals). The residence is located in Friars Lane, and only approximately a half a mile from the village of Ruan Minor, and a mile to the iconic Cadgwith Cove.

The property has been extended in recent years, having been the subject of a programme of sympathetic modernisation, and now in need of general finishing to complete the restoration of this traditional Cornish farmhouse. The property offers exceptionally spacious accommodation throughout, and has part exposed granite/stone and painted rendered external elevations, under a pitched slate tiled roof, and warmed by a bio mass solid fuel boiler. The quality windows to the front aspect are hardwood framed and double gazed (The hardwood window we have been advised by our sellers were built to order by Richard Winfrey of Helston).

The property is further warmed during the winter months by a solid fuel stove in the living room, and solar panels have been installed on the roof (solely for heating the hot water) naturally enhancing the efficiency of the residence.

The residence with the acreage will appeal to family or lifestyle change buyers, seeking something unusual and non ubiquitous in a quiet near coastal location.

Please refer to the estate agents footnotes relating to the property at the bottom of the details.

Location - Ruan Minor is a delightful rural near coastal village located amongst some superb countryside, nestling beside the iconic communities of Lizard, Cadgwith, Kuggar and St Ruan. The village offers a local shop, church and primary school. The iconic destination of Cadgwith must surely be considered as one of the most picturesque and authentic Cornish fishing villages, epitomising this gorgeous setting with classic colour washed thatched cottages spilling down each side of the valley to the beach below. Cadgwith is located on the eastern side of the Lizard peninsula, and enjoys mesmerising views with fishing boats drawn up the beach and out across the cove. The village has an iconic pub where the Cadgwith singers perform genuine Cornish sea shanties most Friday evenings, further enhancing this delightful charismatic venue. The nearby stunning Cornish footpath enjoys some of the most dramatic coastal scenery the UK has to offer. In recent times, the village has enjoyed much media coverage on national TV and major film work highlighting this gem of a traditional fishing village.
