Goundrys is delighted to offer this wonderful opportunity to acquire a detached, generously proportioned cottage in a tranquil rural position, set within its own garden and land extending to approximately six and a half acres, yet within four miles of Truro city centre. The property, we believe, comprises a detached cottage dating to the middle 19th century that was extended in the 1980's but requires some updating and refurbishment to bring it back to its former glory. The property does have double glazing and an oil fired central heating system (although this hasn't been used for over 12 months). The accommodation comprises two good sized sitting rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and ground floor bedroom and bathroom. Whilst on the first floor the master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and there are two further double bedrooms. Kestrel Cottage is approached along a bridleway that gives access to itself and two adjacent properties and occupies a delightful rural position and the grounds include approximately one and a half acres of woodland and a number of paddocks (in need of some attention) giving a further approximately five acres. We understand from the seller that there is water to each paddock and one field contains a large block and timber L shaped outbuilding, sub divided into workshop/store, stabling and feed/tack room. There are further sheds providing useful storage and this really is a wonderful opportunity for the discerning purchasers to create their own stunning rural home.
