The characterful two bedroom stone built cottage has been improved and upgraded in recent years yet still has scope to improve further and create an individual and comfortable home. The roof has been replaced at some point together with the installation of uPVC double glazing and oil-fired heating. It has a long lounge/diner, a kitchen and bathroom at ground floor, whilst at first floor there are two double bedrooms. The lounge and bedrooms enjoy fabulous rural aspects across unspoilt countryside.
This appealing home is set back from the Council lane behind pretty cottage gardens and enjoys a sunny southerly aspect. To one side there is a range of small outbuildings together with land extending to approximately 4.5 acres to the rear and is made up of six ancient dry-stone hedged enclosures, one of which opens onto the Council road.
The location is idyllic, just off Grumbla Common, with very much a feeling of ‘old Cornwall’. The property is surrounded by countryside with only sporadic neighbours, the nearest hamlet being Sancreed just over ½ a mile away. Sancreed itself is just 1.5 miles off the A30 west of Penzance/Newlyn, almost exactly mid-way between the north and south coast of this historically important peninsula in Cornwall.
The busy fishing ports of Newlyn and Mousehole, the latter famed for its cat and the Christmas lights, are less than 5 miles to the east whilst St Just and the stunning coastline and mining heritage of Botallack (Poldark country!) is 5 miles to the west. Other coastal landmarks, such as the sandy beach at Sennen, Land’s End, Porthcurno, the breath-taking Minnack amphitheatre and picturesque Lamorna, a long-established mecca for artist, are all within a 20/30 minute drive. The historic port of Penzance is 4 miles away and is today a busy cosmopolitan town where there is a wide variety of shopping and recreational facilities, not to mention several state and private schools plus a hospital. Penzance is on the end of the Paddington to Penzance mainline railway providing stress free commuting by rail, whilst the A30 ensures quick and easy access around the County. The City of Truro, the business and commercial centre point of Cornwall, famed for its magnificent cathedral, is approximately 30 miles/45 minutes away and so for many within a daily commute.
From Penzance follow the A30 south-west signposted Land’s End. Shortly after passing through Buryas Bridge enter the hamlet of Lower Drift where at the crossroads turn right signposted Sancreed and Carn Euny. Follow this road past the reservoir and without deviating, into the hamlet of Sancreed. Continue past the church, shortly after which turn left signposted Grumbla and St Just. Follow this road for just over ½ a mile whereupon the property for sale will be found on the right hand side identified by a Lodge & Thomas for sale board.
