Beneath the dense foliage which currently covers the outside is an amazing property waiting to be brought back to life.

Primrose Farmhouse is ripe for total renovation, either as one large family home with four bedrooms or two smaller semi-detached properties with two bedrooms each.

It is for sale with a guide price of £225,000 and is marketed by Philip Martin, Truro at OnTheMarket, where three different video tours can be viewed.

The detached cottage has gorgeous south-facing views across the Cornish countryside and sits on the edge of the village of Chacewater some five miles from Truro.

The property has a delightful approach over a sweeping access lane across surrounding countryside which is predominantly used for equestrian purposes.

The cottage enjoys south facing gardens which are overgrown but offer potential to create a wonderful cottage garden.

There is a small area of parking which redevelopment of the property could expand.

Buying or renting a listed building? Everything you need to know

Attached to the side of the house is a part timber, part block lean-to which could be redeveloped into the main property or utilised to create an annexe or office space.

The property is in the area of what was the Wheal Busy mine, once known as ‘the richest square mile on Earth’ as it produced more than 100,000 tons of copper ore during its lifetime.

Chacewater benefits from a village shop, public house, bakery, doctors’ surgery and primary school and has a great sense of community with many village organisations and activities held throughout the year.

The Hall for Cornwall, Royal Cornwall Museum and historic Truro Cathedral are all easily accessible.
