3 bedroom detached cottage set in circa 1.7 acres in need of modernisation with potential for further development subject to planning.
Magpie Cottage is a traditional period cottage, believed to date from circa 1830. The property has undergone a single storey side extension, more than doubling the original footprint. The garden area for the property extends to over half an acre with a range of outbuildings including a large metal open fronted agricultural building and static caravan both of which have been in situ for more than 15 years. There is a further field of circa 1.15 acres. The property benefits from far reaching county views and offers an opportunity to reconfigure and extend, subject to planning. The accommodation comprises 2 reception rooms, kitchen/diner, conservatory, bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor with 2 bedrooms on the first floor. It is understood that there is some Cob construction in the original 2 storey part of the property. The property offers a fantastic opportunity for those looking to create a fine family home or could continue as a small holding. Most recently the various outbuildings have been used for keeping chickens and ducks, with a fenced area within the field containing various runs and coops. The top paddock, by the house, houses the static caravan which we are informed has been in situ for in excess of 20 years and may offer potential for development subject to planning.
Set in a semi-rural setting, close to Truro, Falmouth and Redruth the property offers far reaching countryside views. It is approached via a circa 100m long private drive across the field, from the single track lane. What3words location: doted.improvise.logbook
