This little gem has been in the same family for many decades and offers a successful buyer the chance to modernise and extend the existing building (subject to the normal planning permission and building regulation approval) and create a home that matches their own particular taste and requirements. We are confident the house will capture the interest of buyers who are looking for such a property.

The houses sits on a generous plot and has the added advantage of owning a large lightly wooded and lawned garden across the lane opposite the property and this also includes a detached garage with parking and a couple of old garden buildings.

The mezzanine and first floor level offers two good sized bedrooms, one at the front and the other overlooking the rear garden towards fields.

The house is situated within a short drive to the surrounding villages of Stithians and Four Lanes, both offering good local amenities including convenience stores, villages schools, public houses and good access by road to the larger towns of Redruth, Falmouth, Camborne and the cathedral city of Truro.
