Full Details

This idyllic setting, abutting farmland with open views, is tucked away in a quiet and private spot, at the end of no through road. This wonderful traffic free location feels secluded and yet not isolated as it is just 1½ miles from the A30 at Scorrier. The major town of Redruth is just 3 miles away where there is a wide range of schools, shops, health and leisure facilities plus a stop on the Paddington to Penzance railway line. The awe inspiring north Cornish coast and beaches at Portreath, Porthtowan and Chapel Porth are within a 4 mile drive, as is the pretty beach and village of St Agnes. Truro is 7 miles away for an even greater range of amenities, including RCH Tresliske.

The Property
A detached cottage that has been extended over the years but is now in need of considerable repair and refurbishment. As it is, and once improved, it could become a cosy home yet others may see potential for complete re-modelling or even replacement. The cottage has oil-fired heating, a shower room with wc and kitchen, and until very recent times the property has been lived in.

It sits within a level plot extending to approx. 0.16 acres, at the end of a narrow lane that wouldn’t be suitable for anything larger than, for example, a transit van. The property backs on to fields to the front and rear and within the overgrown gardens there are various dilapidated sheds and a large amount of rubbish, including two vehicles, all of which will remain in-situ.

Property Information
Mains electricity and water are connected to the property. Private drainage. None of these services have been tested and therefore no guarantees can be given.


The sale will be subject to and with the benefit of all existing wayleaves, easements and rights of way as may exist.
