EXTENDED CHARACTER COTTAGE requiring some updating, with three bedrooms, SUN LOUNGE, good size rear GARDEN with some VIEWS and DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE/WORKSHOP. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Forming part of a pair of farm workers cottages built, we understand, in the 1800s and later extended creating a sizeable and unique home which hasn't been on the open market for almost twenty years. The cottage offers notable character, an enviable detached double garage/workshop, sizeable gated driveway, low maintenance garden and rear aspect distant views to Bodmin Moor.



We understand the cottage was extended in 1974 by previous owners and then again by the current owners in 1991. To the front of the cottage is a useful open porch and to the rear is a covered seating area enjoying a sunny aspect. The garden is low maintenance and extends around the garage with a pond and storage area covering the oil tank. The cottage is warmed by oil fired central heating, underfloor electric heating in the sitting room, woodburning stove and PVCu double glazing.



The accommodation is light and airy and requires update and improvement in some areas. The living space comprises kitchen/breakfast room, utility/cloakroom, sitting room and sun lounge which is currently used as a home office. To the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom.
