A truly sublime double fronted cottage located in central Veryan, sitting in a commanding position, yet tucked away for privacy within a large plot with beautiful views overlooking the church and surrounding village. Colchis is of extremely good proportions with large rooms having high ceiling heights. It retains a wealth of character throughout with exposed wooden joists and large sash windows.
On the ground floor there is a sunny entrance porch with the main reception rooms to the left and right. The kitchen diner is an excellent size with an oil-fired Aga and lots of cupboard space for storage. There are double doors out to the side garden that is completely enclosed and private, a great place for al fresco dining. From the kitchen diner is a utility room with lots of storage and then a boot room leading out to the gardens. There is also a downstairs wc just off the kitchen. The living room is over 21’ long with an attractive fireplace housing a log burner. There is a study to the rear which could also be utilised as a fourth bedroom.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms with bedrooms one and two enjoying lovely views out over the village. The master bedroom which has two large sash windows letting in plenty of natural light also has a modern en-suite shower room. There is a third bedroom to the rear and a family bathroom with large bath and separate walk-in shower.
Overall Colchis is in outstanding order throughout having been sympathetically restored and decorated in keeping with its character with lovely neutral colours.
Outside, on arrival is a parking area for two vehicles, and a detached outbuilding. Through the entrance gates is a large area zoned into two parts, one being paved leading to the front and side entrance and the other being laid to lawn with attractive views over the village and surrounding countryside.
Colchis is within minutes of the village amenities yet is tucked away giving lots of privacy whilst having the convenience on your doorstep of plenty of countryside walks to local beaches such as Pendower which is within easy reach.
