An exquisite 'chocolate box' cottage, quietly situated on the outskirts of this ever-popular village, midway between Truro and Falmouth, in an almost traffic-free location, with excellent bus and rail facilities 'on the doorstep'. Meticulously maintained throughout and to be sold for the first time in 25 years, the availability of 'Laburnum Cottage' provides a 'once in a lifetime' opportunity to secure a home of great charm and character, in exceptional condition throughout, in one of south Cornwall's most sought-after areas.


'Laburnum Cottage' has been lovingly maintained by the present owners who are selling solely to relocate to be closer to family.

Consequently, an extremely rare opportunity exists to purchase one of Perranwell's prettiest, most characterful and admired homes which offers the unusual combination of cottage living, but in a property with all modern facilities and a condition rarely found in properties a fraction of the age.

Positioned along Tarrandean Lane, an almost traffic-free location on the eastern outskirts of the village, 'Laburnum Cottage' is set back from the quiet roadside amidst beautifully landscaped and stocked gardens which, again, have been lovingly tended, to provide many interesting, sheltered, sunny and shaded areas with shaped lawns, paved and gravelled terraces, granite rockery borders, specimen trees, flowering shrubs and traditional 'hedgerow' beds. A large gravelled forecourt provides ample off-road parking, in addition to which there is a deep, detached, block-built garage with workshop area and, to one side, an additional hardstanding ideal for those with a caravan or small boat etc.

Throughout, the accommodation is faultlessly presented, benefits from high quality Anglian uPVC double glazing, and a comprehensive mains gas fired central heating system. For those prospective purchasers looking for the epitome of cottage-style living, whether a young professional couple or those approaching retirement, we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending an early viewing appointment.


Tarrandean Lane is situated on the outskirts of this highly sought-after village, whose excellent day-to-day amenities include a village stores, public house, village hall, county primary school and garage. Regular bus and rail services are within just a 150 yard level walk, bringing the neighbouring towns of Truro and Falmouth within very easy reach. The port of Falmouth has, once again, recently been voted as 'one of the best places to live in the UK', by the readers of The Sunday Times, and the cathedral city of Truro, being the county's legal, administrative, retail, commercial, health and educational centre, offers the region's full and finest range of facilities.
