Full Details

The Property
Accessed off the county highway via a right of way over a short, shared access track, also a bridle path, the property comprises a detached two storey dwelling converted from a former agricultural barn approximately 32 years ago, but now requires a degree of refurbishment.

Primarily of traditional construction with a latter-day block extension under a pitched and mono pitched slate roof. The property benefits from timber framed windows and warmed via an oil fired heating system.

The accommodation, arranged over two floors, provides two reception rooms, spacious kitchen/breakfast room, and shower room with WC on ground floor, family bath and two bedrooms on the first floor.

To the rear of the property, small courtyard garden area, accessed from the sitting room or side path of the dwelling.

Across the bridle path, lies the south facing garden and parking area. The gardens predominantly level, have been recently cleared to allow ground vegetations to flourish. Within the area is a former potting shed. From the gardens, glorious views are enjoyed over the surrounding countryside, and towards Godolphin Hill.

When the property was converted some 30 years ago, spray foam insulation was used in the original loft, therefore the property is deemed not mortgageable and would be suitable to cash buyers only

Conveniently situated on the edge of the village of Townshend located on the B3280 Goldsithney to Leedstown road close to both the north and south coast, and a short drive to the main A30 dual carriageway. Locally, there is a useful range of facilities in the nearby villages including Leedstown, 2 miles with a public house and primary school, and Goldsithney 2½ miles with a village shop Post Office and two public houses. More extensive services and facilities can be found in the towns of Hayle 4 miles, Helston 6 miles and Penzance 8 miles, with a range of health, education, business, leisure and retail services.

The area is known for the extensive trials of footpaths and bridleways for the walking enthusiast, or the numerous quiet county lanes for cycling.
