Built in 1685, believed to be possibly the oldest house in the village, this lovely Grade II Listed double fronted cottage offers many period features, a garage with driveway parking with a very pretty, large mature garden which backs on to fields. The property has previously been let as a successful holiday cottage and in recent years as a popular long term rental property. The rear of the property is ripe for an extension which could create a superb kitchen dining room overlooking the garden (subject to the relevant permissions). The property is situated in Churchtown, Illogan and has been home to many celebrated characters throughout its long history, to include 'Master' Photographer Edward Albert Bragg 1877-1928. Excellent access is offered to Portreath, Tehidy Country Park, Redruth and a good range of local amenities to include the A30 link road. Internally, there is a sitting room with open beam ceiling and wood burner, a dining room with a fabulous inglenook fireplace, a fitted kitchen and a conservatory which overlooks the garden. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a re-fitted bathroom. The cottage is warmed by gas central heating. Externally, there is a driveway with a garage.
