Full Details

Crittol is accessed via a long private driveway from the Perranporth road and is within easy reach of the A30 and Truro. The driveway’s dense tree-lined boundaries offer privacy, shelter and an air of tranquility. The beaches of the north coast are within a short drive and everyday facilities are available in nearly Blackwater and St Agnes.

The Property
Crittol is a detached house, thought to have been built during the 1990’s to replace a former cottage-dwelling on the site. It has been in the same family ownership since 1996 and though well maintained since, the property is now a little dated in its décor, allowing one to put their own stamp on the property to make it their own.

Although currently arranged as one family house, there is potential to split the accommodation to provide an annexe (subject to planning consent) within the single storey section of the property.

Currently the accommodation offers a wide hallway with cloaks cupboard and wc, a dual aspect living room with multi-fuel burner, large utility room, home office/bedroom five, kitchen/breakfast room open plan to a dining room and conservatory all to the ground floor with four double bedrooms - three with a range of fitted furniture - and a family bathroom to the first floor. All of the rooms enjoy views out over the gardens and at the rear, to the countryside beyond. Windows are double glazed.

From the roadway is a wide entrance verge with two gateways, one leading to the gardens and another down the drive, which is flanked by Cornish stone hedging and which opens into a large parking and turning area in front of the double garage, which has electricity connected and two electric roller vehicular doors.

The gardens are arranged into three areas of paddock and all have been planted with tree-lined boundaries, which offer huge privacy and shelter. The furthermost paddock has been largely rewilded with the exception of mown paths in and amongst the trees. From here a line of beech trees and stone walling separate this paddock from the orchard field, where there are a number of fruit trees and a large expanse of lawn, ideal for children to play. Within this area of garden is a greenhouse, mower shed, composting bays and particularly wonderful views out across the countryside beyond.

To the side of the house is a paved sitting area with bench covered by a pergola, and from here there are pathways to either side which eventually join and follow a crazy paved pathway underneath a further pergola where steps lead down to a circular seating area ideal for barbeques, and a woodland like garden together with a pond. From here there is a further expanse of lawn interspersed with trees and with trees again lining the boundaries to offer shelter and privacy. There is a raised paved sitting area immediately adjoining the living room and steps from here lead down to the lawns. There are external cold water taps and electric points.
