A SEMI DETACHED 3 BEDROOM COTTAGE IN A VERY QUIET AND TUCKED AWAY LOCATION IN THIS CHARMING WATERSIDE VILLAGE. GARAGED PARKING AND REAR GARDENS WITH SOME VIEWS TO THE RIVER.
The Location - Lerryn is a beautiful waterside village situated upstream from Fowey town and harbour. The village has its own pub, shop, sub post office and primary school and is approximately 3 miles from the historic Stannary town of Lostwithiel. Formerly the ancient capital of Cornwall, Lostwithiel has a lovely range of bespoke shops and businesses catering for most day to day needs, including bank, community centre/sports hall, and main line railway station.
The larger towns of Bodmin, Liskeard and St. Austell are all under a 30 minute drive away. The nearby A30 and A38 provide access to the motorway network and Newquay Airport provides regular flights to London and various European destinations.
The Property - Situated along a quiet lane, the cottage was built in 1824 and retains much character with lovely views over gardens and towards the river.
Under the same ownership for a number of years, the property is now in need of some modernising and offers a blank canvas for someone to make a much loved main home or second/holiday home.
Accessed directly from Piggy Lane, at the front of the property there is a timber frame entrance porch with door which leads into the kitchen. There is a range of base and wall units with freestanding 2 oven cooker, sink and drainer and space for fridge/freezer. A window looks out on to the lane, and a door leads through to the sitting room, which has lovely views over the rear garden. A large fireplace houses an oil fired stove (not in working order) and stairs lead to the first floor. There is a storage cupboard under the stairs.
A glazed door opens to a storm porch and onto a paved patio.
Stairs lead to the first floor landing.
From the landing doors open to all bedrooms.
There is a generous double bedroom with built in wardrobe and lovely views overlooking the rear garden and over a neighbours garden to the river. There are two further bedrooms and a shower room with doors opening from both bedroom 1 and bedroom 3.
Outside - The property is approached via Piggy Lane with both vehicular and pedestrian access, shared with neighbouring properties. There is a generous sized single garage.
A paved patio is accessed directly from the sitting room, with a timber sun room to one side. A pathway leads around the side of the property where there is an oil tank and access via a gate to a pedestrian path.
A very pretty rear garden leads from the paved patio at the rear of the cottage, and runs down to a pathway alongside a stream which leads to the river. A metal gate provides access (shared with neighbouring property) to the pathway. There is a further stone outbuilding, useful for storage.
