The property occupies a generous, deep plot, close to the outskirts of Stithians village, benefiting from superb views over surrounding farmland beyond the outer fringes of the village itself. To the front, there is a large driveway providing parking for up to six vehicles and a courtyard garden, perfect for pot plants and sitting out and enjoying the southerly aspect. To the rear, the gardens have undergone a significant transformation in the last year, and now comprises an Indian slate-paved patio spanning the entire width of the property, substantial decked area with integrated mood lighting, and open 'Asian inspired' landscaped area with rockery and water feature, whilst still retaining a substantial area of level lawn with a useful timber storage shed, greenhouse and vegetable plot. The entirety of the plot is enclosed by dry walling, evergreen hedging and fencing.

THE LOCATION

The village of Stithians is ideally located between the harbour town of Falmouth and the market town of Redruth, with easy access to Helston town and the cathedral city of Truro being within easy motoring distance. The village itself is extremely well served and benefits from day-to-day amenities such as a shop/sub-post office, public house with darts and pools teams, junior and pre-schooling, tennis courts, a cricket club, rugby club, active football club and a skate park for the use of the local residents. There is also a library which runs three days a week at the local village hall.

Close at hand beyond the village border is Stithians Reservoir and Water Sports Centre, various family activities and rural walks for those with pets. Stithians Showground is on the outskirts of the village which presents many different events including Sithians Show and the VW Jamboree.
