SEMI DETACHED COTTAGE FOR REFURBISHMENT A substantial semi detached stone cottage in a central village location and enjoying views into the harbour, the sea and the cliff land adjacent. Three bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor, spacious main reception room and kitchen on the ground floor.
One of the last of its type in this highly regarded coastal village and especially in such a strategic position with a good outlook.
General Remarks And Location - The availability of Fuschia Cottage is a very rare opportunity to purchase a three bedroom cottage for refurbishment in such a strategic location within Portloe. The cottage is semi detached with an attractive stone frontage and is arguably larger than might be immediately apparent due to an extension added to the rear over thirty years ago. It is set back from the main thoroughfare leading through the village with a walled forecourt for sitting out and enabling the delightful views to the sea and cliffs. The property has been in the same family ownership for many years and early viewing is strongly advised.
Portloe is one of the "jewels" of the Roseland Peninsula. It has seen little or no intensive development in modern times and still retains its traditional atmosphere with clusters of old stone cottages set in a cleft of the cliff and descending to a delightful small harbour still used by local fishermen but with the industry now sadly concentrating on crabs and lobsters. Not surprisingly most of the village has been declared a Conservation Area. Limited local facilities include a pub and church but there is also a bus service throughout the year and the larger village of Veryan, known for its picturesque round houses built in the 19th Century by a Clergyman, is about two miles away. Here there is a pub, church, primary school, post office/general store, as well as a social/sports hall with indoor bowls and tennis courts. Much of the land in the area is owned and protected by the National Trust and the clifftop walks in the immediate vicinity are exceptional. The nearby Carne and Pendower Beach is also a favourite with locals and visitors alike. The city of Truro with its Cathedral and fine shopping centre is about twelve miles away.
The Cottage - The cottage is an attractive double fronted building with stone elevations, brick window arches and traditional sash windows (obviously in need of attention). The dwelling was upgraded and extended many years ago whereby two rooms on the ground floor were amalgamated into one spacious reception with an open inglenook and a modern extension added to the rear to facilitate three bedrooms on the first floor plus a bathroom. The whole of the accommodation is in need of refurbishment.
