Property description

EXQUISITE COUNTRY COTTAGE - A BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED ONE BEDROOM CHARACTER COTTAGE IN A QUIET COUNTRY SETTING Beautifully presented throughout and comprising entrance porch, fitted kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. Detached garage, fabulous summerhouse and delightful "secret" garden.


Apple Cottage is one of a mere handful of cottages forming the hamlet of Crohans less than a mile from the picturesque village of Veryan. The cottage is attached but in most respects it is independent of its neighbours and has the benefit of a substantial detached garage and a beautiful garden focusing to a newly erected summerhouse. The whole property has been meticulously well maintained and will appeal to anyone wanting a character cottage either for holidays or full time use set within a sought after location just a couple of miles inland from the south Cornish coast.

The hamlet of Crohans straddles a minor country road less than a mile north east of Veryan village within the Roseland countryside. Facilities within the village include a combined post office and shop, pub, church and primary school. There is a sports hall with indoor bowls and tennis courts and also a village hall which affords a varied programme of entertainment and local clubs. Veryan is also just over a mile inland from the south Cornish coast and the beaches of Carne and Pendower are popular with locals and visitors alike. Much of the land in the area is owned and protected by the National Trust and cliff top walks abound.

The cottage is undoubtedly of considerable age and is of stone and cob construction under a slated roof. Cottage style windows have "Everest" replacement double glazing and internally there are several high efficiency electric radiators as well as an open fire in the sitting room. The kitchen has recently been refitted and the bedroom features a range of "Sharps" fitted cupboards and wardrobes. Internal viewing is essential.
