This delightful four bedroom detached stone built cottage is packed full of traditional character

Fuchsia Cottage is a gorgeous Cornish stone built detached cottage with an abundance of traditional character inside and out, nestled within interesting meandering gardens and located within a rural valley setting on the outskirts of the sought after hamlet of Penrose. This classic cottage has everything you would expect from a property of this age including beamed ceilings, chunky stone walls and a feature inglenook fireplace all sympathetically combined with modern convenience such as UPVC double glazed windows and an oil fired central heating system with a recently installed Worcester Bosch boiler.

The ground floor accommodation comprises of a conservatory entrance with UPVC double glazed windows on three sides and a tiled floor. A wooden door with glazed picture window panels opens into the breakfast room which has an attractive feature fireplace and double glazed window to the front aspect. From here are doors to the kitchen and lounge/dining room. The galley style kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall cupboards with an inset stainless steel sink and drainer unit, rolled edge worktops and a tiled splashback. There is space for a free standing cooker, washing machine and an under counter fridge. A double glazed window overlooks the front garden and the turned staircase, with understairs cupboard, rises to the first floor landing.

Into the highly characterful lounge/dining room with exposed ceiling beams and beautiful inglenook fireplace housing a cast iron wood burning stove and original recessed bread oven. The lounge has been sympathetically extended and now opens through to a sun room, retaining the true character of the property. This is a wonderfully relaxing place to sit with double glazed French doors opening out to the garden and there are further windows to the sides. A wooden latched door opens to the rear lobby and provides access to the rear garden through a double glazed door. There is a double glazed window to the side aspect with useful coat hooks and wooden bench beneath and opposite this a cloaks cupboard. There is a shower room/cloakroom fitted with a shower enclosure and fourth bedroom which is currently used as a study by the present owners. This part of the cottage would make for great guest accommodation having the shower room adjacent.

Up on the first floor you will find the landing where doors open to all three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The first two bedrooms are genuine double size rooms, both with a built in wardrobe and a rear aspect window, one of them with a wash hand basin. The third bedroom is currently fitted with hanging rail units and utilised as a dressing room with a double glazed window to the front aspect. The bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising a paneled bath, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and low level wc. There are part tiled walls and an airing cupboard with insulated hot water cylinder and central heating controls. Services to the property include main water and electricity, septic tank drainage and an oil fired central heating system.

Fuchsia Cottage is nestled within beautiful gardens that are a true delight. Interspersed with an array of colourful and established plants, shrubs and small trees, there are two lawned areas as well as a summer house and natural spring water pump. There are also some stunning countryside views to enjoy across the valley. A winding path with steps lead from the rear entrance door up to the gated and graveled driveway and open fronted garage. A further set of steps lead down through a pergola to a small fruit and flower area and there is also a useful storage shed which doubles as a workshop. The cottage is bordered by an attractive Cornish stone wall separating the property from the lane where a wooden gate opens to the front garden.
