If you are looking for a quality home to purchase in a rural village location, then this stunning double fronted, three bedroom end of terrace cottage in the centre of Constantine near The Helford River could just be the home you are seeking!

Fosow Koth (means old walls) comes to the market for the first time in 15 years and during that time, with great attention to detail, our client has created a fabulous home which is well presented and maintained making this a home anyone would be proud to own.

The property has been used as a permanent home or occasional holiday let investment so you can be sure that the property is in first class condition throughout.

A clever blend of character and modern day conveniences gives you features including UPVC double glazed box sash style windows, oil fired central heating by radiators, a wealth of natural woodwork including beams and internal doors, a woodburning stove in the sitting room and a combination of quality flooring throughout.

The accommodation is bright and enjoys plenty of natural light and on the ground floor offers an entrance hall and small walk-in cloakroom, dual aspect sitting room, a fitted kitchen and dining room with appliances and a rear hallway which takes you into a porch at the rear. A staircase from the rear hall leads to an impressive landing which runs the full width of the property, three bedrooms and a cottage style bathroom/wc. Outside the cottage, wrought iron gates secure a useful gravelled driveway with parking for two vehicles and this wraps around into a gravelled courtyard garden. A large detached barn runs across the rear boundary and provides a number of useful areas on the ground and first floor including a workshop, store, office and log store. There may be a possibility to converted this building subject to the normal planning permission and building regulations.

The popular village of Constantine has a host of amenities at hand including two convenience stores with off licences, The Tolman Centre and museum that hosts a number of events and Constantine Social Club with its recreation and children's playground facilities. There is a bowling green and Constantine also has their own football and cricket teams. Other facilities include a doctors surgery, a highly regarded primary/junior school, St Constantine Parish Church, The Cornish Arms public house and The Tregilly Wartha Inn a little further out of the village. There is also a local bus service that provides transport links from Helston to Falmouth.

As our clients sole agents, we strongly recommend an immediate viewing to secure this exceptional cottage.
