This is a delightful rural three bedroom detached bungalow occupying an elevated setting within generous terraced gardens which we understand approach some one third acre, the side and rear boundaries of the property immediately adjoin fields with an elevated woodland outlook extending to the front.

The property has been sympathetically restored over a number of years to now provide attractive and well presented accommodation which retains a good degree of the older character and style. There is a front veranda enjoying a southerly aspect and views, central hallway with mosaic tiled flooring (currently covered by laminate flooring), living room with dual aspect outlook and wood burner, separate dining room with oil fired Rayburn range, modern fitted kitchen and small utility room. Three bedrooms, stylish bathroom with shower over bath.  The accommodation is served by oil fired central heating to radiators, complemented by UPVC framed double glazing.  

The elevated setting of the property gives rise to useful basement rooms providing excellent storage potential hobbies room workshop facility.  There is a small detached workshop store, aluminium framed greenhouse and range of old storage sheds towards the top of the garden.  

As previously mentioned this property is set within generous terraced gardens providing delightful areas of rockery, patio and lawn with some mature trees, shrub and flower features, continuing to an upper garden of rough lawn with old outbuildings, Cornish stone walling to most boundaries, with fields beyond.  Gated access to paved driveway leads to a walled parking hard standing.  

The rural hamlet of Carthew lies approximately two miles to the north of St Austell just beyond Trethowel and Menacuddle woods with the English China Clays Museum and Country park in close proximity.  

This is a highly individual rural property with no immediate neighbours which is anticipated to appeal to a good number of people and early enquiries to view are advised.
