DESCRIPTION

A characterful and deceptively spacious Grade II Listed cottage, extremely close to the heart of this booming university town and, consequently, a few moments (level) walk from the wide range of local amenities within the town centre, offering 2 double bedrooms, generous kitchen/diner, enclosed garden and elevated views from the rear.

THE PROPERTY

58 West Street is much deeper than it appears from the roadside and benefits from a modern gas fired central heating system and quality replacement timber double glazing, as well as being available with no onward chain.

In brief, a welcoming sitting room with wood-burner, exposed beams and replacement flooring leads to a good sized kitchen/dining room with open staircase to the first floor, elevated views to the rear across the gardens to St Gluvias. A rear porch provides access to a secondary ground floor WC and, on the first floor, the two fairly equally sized double bedrooms feature stripped timber flooring and also benefiting from double glazed timber windows. A centrally positioned first floor bathroom with shower over serves both bedrooms and completes the accommodation.

The attractive rear garden provides an appealing aspect from the kitchen, featuring a raised decked terrace, lower lawned area and timber shed also. In all, a charming and characterful Grade II Listed cottage, available with no onward chain and available for immediate occupation.

THE LOCATION

West Street is one of the main thoroughfares within this booming university town, the subject of mass ongoing investment, following the continuous expansion of the university campus at Tremough and varied residential and commercial developments.

Excellent amenities are literally within yards of the cottage, including convenience stores, banks, various shops, junior and secondary schools, public houses and highly regular bus and rail services to the nearby port of Falmouth and cathedral city of Truro, approximately three and nine miles distant respectively.
