This exceptionally attractive detached two bedroom cottage together with large secluded gardens in a highly desirable location close to Padstow and the north Cornish coastline represents a rare opportunity within the market having been in the same family ownership for over one hundred years.

A very desirable rural location less than ten minutes walk (just over one mile) from the large beautiful sandy beach of Treyarnon Bay and rugged north Cornish Coastline, St Merryn village approximately one mile and Padstow just over three miles.

The cottage is located alongside the B3276 St Merryn to Porthcothan road in the corner of its extensive near 3/4 acre gardens, a sunny south facing position with delightful patios, pond, extensive lawn and old orchard to a meandering stream at its foremost boundary.  There is a double five bar gate entrance to parking hard standing for numerous vehicles and access to an impressive 36ft garage workshop. 

The cottage has huge character and appeal and provides accommodation of a generous 24ft front living room with beams, wood burner and window seats, a 29ft kitchen through dining room to the rear.  Two bedrooms and spacious bathroom to first floor.  The accommodation is served by oil fired central heating complemented by UPVC framed double glazing. 

There would appear to be potential to further extend the accommodation, possibly convert/extend the garage workshop or seek development by way of a building plot within the gardens, all of course subject to obtaining any necessary planning/regulatory requirements. 

Combining the picturesque nature of the cottage and gardens, coupled with its desirable rural/coastal setting it is anticipated to appeal to a good number of people and early appointments to appraise in detail are most strongly advised.
