The ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel is a popular Mid-Cornwall location which is steeped in history and renowned for its vibrant community. The property occupies a secluded and semi-rural position within a relatively short walk of the town centre, offering a range of amenities which include a variety of shops, restaurants, public houses, professional services, dentist and health centre. There is a main line railway station on the Penzance to London line and a choice of two Primary schools. Secondary schools are available at nearby Fowey (7 miles) and Bodmin (5 miles) respectively. A purpose built community centre provides recreational and sporting facilities next to the 'King George V' playing field.

The property is approached from the road onto a spacious driveway laid with vertical bedded slates and an adjoining gravelled area with further parking spaces. The surrounding pathways of the cottage and rear patio also feature the attractive vertical slates. To the side of the cottage is covered passageway/storage area with a lean-to slate roof, a wooden gate to the front, courtesy light and a slate flagstone floor. A 'Klargester' septic tank is located in the corner of the front garden, just inside the front boundary hedge. A wooden five bar gate provides an additional access from Tanhouse Road opening onto an expanse of lawn beside the gable end of the property. Just off the rear patio are a couple of wood stores and the oil tank. The private gardens are principally arranged to the side and rear of the cottage with extensive areas of lawn, a summer house and a large timber shed. The land is sloping and extends up behind the gardens into vast areas of woodland, which is a great habitat for wildlife. In total the cottage boasts grounds of almost four acres.
The vendors own the adjacent two bedroom single storey property known as the 'Long Barn'. This was converted approximately 14 years ago with the benefit of full residential use and currently provides a letting income. The property could be available by separate negotiation, therefore any interested parties should make an enquiry to Jefferys for further details.
