Verbena

Situated in the heart of the highly sought-after village of Veryan, this large double fronted, three bedroom 17th century character cottage has a lovely garden, two large outbuildings and off-street parking. From the roadside you could be excused for thinking that Verbena is a traditional two-up, two-down cottage, however this character property has had some generous extensions to the rear making it a good-size three double bedroom property complete with dining / garden room and a utility room as well.

Holiday Letting

Verbena is being sold as an ongoing holiday letting concern including all the furniture (except some personal items), although would equally be suited as a permanent family home due to its location, parking and garden. Historical letting figures are available upon request.

Location Summary

(distances and times are approximate) Village centre: 200 yards. Carne Beach: 1.2 miles. King Harry Ferry: 6 miles. Tregony: 4.5 miles. St Mawes: 8 miles (Falmouth 20 minutes by foot ferry). Truro: 11 miles. St Austell: 13 miles (London Paddington 4 hours by direct rail). Cornwall Airport Newquay: 20.5 miles (regular daily flights to London).

Historical Note

Veryan is most famous for its nineteenth century thatched Round Houses. There are five in all, two pairs of which stand at each end of the village and another in the centre. They were originally built by a missionary, named Reverend Jeremiah Trist, for his daughters. The present name of the village is a corruption of St Symphorian, the Parish saint, which in 1525 had become St Severian leading eventually to St Veryan. Close to Veryan is Carne Beacon, a Bronze Age grass covered barrow and reputedly the burial place of the legendary 6th century chieftain, Gereint of Dumnonia from whom the nearby village of Gerrans gets its name. Not far from there is Veryan Castle, a small Iron Age hill fort.

Veryan

Veryan and Veryan Green comprise a most pleasant village famous for its 'Round Houses' in the beautiful Roseland Peninsula of South Cornwall, and is a true village community with a post office/mini-market, primary school, Church, an excellent pub and a Sports and Social club (including indoor bowls). It is also a conservation area and is approximately 1.2 miles from the unspoiled Pendower and Carne beaches. There are many lovely country walks in and around the village, and the Cornish Coastal Path is also within easy reach. The Cathedral City of Truro and administrative centre for Cornwall is 11 miles away with excellent shopping facilities. The King Harry Ferry, approximately 6 miles, provides a short cut to Falmouth and leads to the far west. The sailing centre of St Mawes is within 8 miles.

Cornwall

Cornwall has been enjoying a renaissance. The county recently leapfrogged London to be recently crowned by rightmove as the top area in the UK for the most online property searches over the last year. The Duchy offers a range of accessible attractions such as the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and the Tate Gallery. The Cathedral City of Truro is the main financial and commercial centre of Cornwall. It has a fine range of stores, private schools, college and the main hospital in the county (RCH Treliske). Both Falmouth University and Cornwall Airport at Newquay are rapidly expanding. Fine dining Michelin star and celebrity chef restaurants are in abundance, including Rick Stein (Padstow), Nathan Outlaw (Port Isaac), Paul Ainsworth (Padstow and Rock). Rising stars on The Roseland are Paul Green at the Driftwood, Rosevine and Matt Haggath at the Idle Rocks, St Mawes.

A Brief Tour

Accessing the cottage from the charming front garden, a part glazed front door leads into the kitchen. This spacious room is well equipped and has a lovely Cornish stone fireplace with wooden lintel housing the electric Aga. A staircase leads to the first floor. Off the kitchen is a generously sized family room, clearly defined into three separate areas. Closest to the kitchen is the breakfast area with ample space for a table, with a large sash window overlooking the front garden. There is a generous and comfortable living area with an open fireplace, leading on to the garden / dining area. Large windows and a skylight ensure that natural light floods into this room, and a door leads directly out onto the patio and garden. There is also a useful shower room and WC off the dining area. A handy utility room leads off the living area and runs along the length of the cottage. It houses the oil-fired boiler, as well as washing machine and a small Belfast sink, and can be accessed from the front of the property and the garden, making it ideal for wet dogs and children, as well as drying wetsuits, coats and wellies!

First Floor

On the first floor, the landing opens up to the three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Bedroom one is a generous double at the front of the property, and has built in wardrobes and an alcove housing a chest of drawers. Bedroom three is also at the front and is currently arranged as a twin. Also at the front is a shower room which is on a Saniflo system. We have been advised by our clients that this was previously a fourth, single, bedroom and could be converted back if so wished. To the rear of the property with expansive countryside views, bedroom two is another generous double bedroom with built in wardrobes. There is also a family bathroom, with electric shower, located to the rear of the cottage.

Outside

Outside is a patio area leading directly off both the garden / dining room and the utility, with lawned area and a pathway leading towards a gate, a further area of “secret” garden and one of the outbuildings. This outbuilding (subject to the relevant planning) would make ideal ancillary accommodation to the main cottage or as a home office, gym or studio. The second outbuilding is located to one side of the garden, and is currently used to house garden tools, bikes, etc. The garden has a range of beds with plants and shrubs and faces due west making it the perfect spot for an evening barbeque.
