From the kerbside, its impossible to form a clear perspective of our Vendor's quirky cottage, without a venture around the gardens to appreciate the plot size and then inside a home. From the moment you cross the threshold, you'll appreciate the charm and character that works in harmony with a practical layout that allows the discerning buyer choices on how to make their home suit their needs.
The principal full-width living area offers space and versatility while giving a cosier ambiance with a cast iron stove, a study links in with the kitchen, the upstairs and laundry room, a studio that looks out over a lawn area, and a shower room. Upstairs, a three-piece bathroom suite serves three double-sized bedrooms to complete the accommodation.
Outside, the well-stocked garden enjoys a sunny South facing aspect and is surrounded by a rich variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees, while from the kerbside there is a private driveway that allows off-road parking, a workshop, shed and wood store.
Chestnut Cottage is located on Merritts Hill in Illogan. This community-focused village is well-served with an infant and junior school, two grocery stores and post office, two GP surgeries, a pharmacy, public house, a hair and beauty salon, places of worship and regular public transport links into Camborne and Redruth. Both towns offer a wider choice of shops, and for those traveling out of the Duchy, there are mainline stations on the Penzance to London Paddington line.
