One of the main attributes of Rosemellyn is its private surroundings coupled with its convenience to shops, schools, beaches, coastal and rural walks and water sport facilities. Veryan is the nearest village which is a true community with a post office/mini-market, primary school, Church, an excellent pub, bus service and a Sports and Social club (including indoor bowls). It is also a conservation area and is approximately 2 miles from the unspoiled mile long sands at 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 larger village of Tregony is 3 miles distant. The Cathedral City of Truro is 12 miles away with excellent shopping and schooling facilities. The King Harry Ferry, approximately 4 miles, provides a short cut to Falmouth and leads to the far west. The sailing centre and exclusive coastal village of St Mawes is within 8 miles.
Tregony is known as the gateway to the Roseland Peninsula. It was once a thriving port on the River Fal before it silted up. To-day it is flourishing again with many interesting old buildings, Church, an Ofsted rated excellent Secondary School plus a Primary School, doctors' surgery, dentist, hairdresser, Public House and a range of shops along its wide main street, including a mini-market /post office as well as a regular bus service.
Located in a very private setting and surrounded by open countryside, Rosemellyn is a delightful period property. Sympathetically restored by the current owners, this pretty home offers well-presented family sized accommodation and is believed to date back to the mid 1800's. Whilst benefitting from up-to-date double-glazed windows and easy to control independent electric panel radiators, the property remains true to its period characterized by exposed beams, stripped oak floorboards and a wood-burning stove. A particular feature of the property is the abundance of light throughout. Offering 4 good sized bedrooms, potential still exists, subject to any necessary planning consents, to extend the property to a much larger family residence from its current approximate 1184 square feet of living accommodation.
The west facing elevation of the cottage and the main gardens to the rear as well as the majority of the land benefit from outstanding uninterrupted 180-degree views over beautiful rolling Cornish countryside encompassing the Lizard Peninsula and the Goonhilly satellite dishes to the west, Carn Brea Monument towards the North coast and the clay hills of St Austell to the east.
Suited towards the lifestyle change / retiring buyer, this unique home will also appeal to a family, either as a permanent or holiday home, who, subject to any necessary planning consents, could adapt and re-configure the existing accommodation into a design layout that suits their lifestyle aspirations and needs.
Rosemellyn: On the Ground Floor
The ground floor accommodation comprises a large dual aspect kitchen and dining area with a solid wood farmhouse kitchen, exposed beams and solid oak floor. Of particular note are the beautiful rural views over surrounding rural countryside. Formally two separate rooms, the Sitting Room is now a well-proportioned reception room providing a spacious but cosy living space also benefitting rural aspects from the rear window. Pleasant views are also enjoyed from the front facing windows over the gardens and paddock. The property is also serviced by a good-sized utility / boot room with a cloakroom / WC off, which in turn leads to the rear gardens.
