DESCRIPTION

Situated in the 'heart' of the sought-after and extremely well served North Helford Area village of Constantine, a broad and highly attractive stone-built cottage, providing surprisingly well proportioned accommodation, full of charm and character, with 3 double bedrooms, 2 shower rooms and lovely reception rooms, with well stocked front gardens, sunny rear gardens and off-road parking.

THE PROPERTY

'Chycoth an Bal', Cornish for 'mine captains house' is a broad double fronted cottage of stone construction, which has been in our client's ownership for many years and is being sold due her relocation out of the county, with the benefit of immediate vacant possession with no onward chain.

'Hidden' from the roadside by a well stocked front garden, the property's accommodation is deceptively spacious and full of charm and character with features including double glazing (hardwood to the front elevation), oil fired central heating, glazed entrance porch, superb open-plan kitchen/breakfast room with separate dining/study area, double aspect lounge with inglenook fireplace and Villager log-burner, rear lobby with downstairs shower room and, to the first floor, three double bedrooms with canopied ceilings, and second shower room/WC.

The gardens to the rear are well enclosed, mainly paved for ease of maintenance, back onto the village playing field and enjoy an extremely sunny south-westerly aspect. Through these gardens, a gateway leads across the back of the neighbouring cottage to 'Chycoth an Bals' parking space, suitable for the construction of a garage if required, subject to all necessary consents.

THE LOCATION

'Chycoth an Bal' is situated within the heart of this vibrant community with all day-to-day amenities 'on the doorstep', including a highly regarded county primary school, sports/social club, two convenience stores, church, hairdressers, public house, dentist, doctors surgery and active village hall - The Tolmen Centre.

The waterside villages of Port Navas and Gweek, on the beautiful Helford River, are approximately two miles distant; Helston is six miles, Falmouth seven miles, and the cathedral city of Truro fourteen miles. Beautiful rural, creekside and coastline walks abound in the area, renowned for its internationally acclaimed day-sailing waters with training, mooring, repair and laying-up facilities all within easy reach.

In all, a delightful village home, in one of Cornwall's most sought-after areas, which must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
