DESCRIPTION

A highly unusual single storey freehold 'studio' cottage, tucked-away down a quiet ope leading from Penryn s historic town centre, providing cosy yet stylish open-plan living room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, refitted kitchen and with a small sunny patio area.

THE LOCATION

19a Higher Market Street stands within a quiet backwater called Easoms Yard, leading from an opeway off Penryn's main street and, consequently, enjoys a tucked-away position away from passing traffic and still within a few moments' walk of the excellent range of day-to-day amenities, including junior school, church, various pubs, general stores, post office, restaurants, bank, bus and rail services which Penryn has to offer. The expanding university campus at Tremough is within approximately ten to fifteen minutes walk; Penryn's railway station provides direct access into nearby Falmouth and the cathedral city of Truro.

THE PROPERTY

A genuinely unusual proposition to purchase a freehold studio cottage in a central yet quiet ope leading off one of Penryn town centre s oldest streets. This extremely cute property is full of charm and has been refitted to an excellent standard by the current owner. Featuring a vaulted beamed ceiling under a natural slate roof, the accommodation is arranged with an open-plan kitchen/living/bedroom, separate shower room and attached store room/utility. A small slate-laid patio provides sunny sitting out space and faces south.
