A 5.4 acre smallholding used in recent years as a market garden, tucked away on the rural outskirts of Hayle and offering a comprehensive range of outbuildings together with a four bedroom house, all of which are in need of some refurbishment.
A detached cottage that has been within the same family for over 100 years and is thought to have once been a mine captain’s residence with two attached cottages. Today it is a charming four bedroom, three reception home which, whilst in need of considerable renovation and improvement clearly has the potential to be a comfortable and characterful family home. Many original features remain such as the open beamed ceilings, the cast iron fireplace in the lounge and the wonderful old panelled doors and architraving. It is understood by the family selling that it has been many years since the attached cottages collapsed and yet two rooms of one of the cottages (No. 22) remain and could be used to create a two room annexe, office or studio space to work from home, subject to planning.
Properties like this are hard to find and this one is located on a quiet lane within a total of 5.4 acres which includes sheltered formal gardens (overgrown), an extensive array of outbuildings and productive land which includes a stream that runs along the south-western boundary.
Set within a sheltered rural location, the property is within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of the old fishing port of Hayle, 1 mile away. Here the heavy industries of the foundries and rail line have now been replaced by a wide selection of shops which include an Asda superstore located on the harbour side in the shadow of the magnificent viaduct carrying the London/Penzance railway line. The town caters well for most daily requirements with facilities that include doctors surgery, schooling and a hospital. Hayle is also famed for its miles of safe sandy beaches which are popular with locals and tourists alike. At the end of the beach and 3 miles offshore is the Godrevy Lighthouse that features in Virginia Wolf’s novel ‘To the Lighthouse’. Cornwall’s main arterial route, the A30, bypasses Hayle but with two junctions at either end of the town, the larger commercial centres of Penzance, Redruth and Camborne are all within a 20 minute drive. Cornwall’s cathedral City of Truro, with its many and varied shopping, schooling and health facilities, including the Royal Cornwall Hospital, is approx. 20 miles away or 30 minutes by car.
