A fine detached house located in a commanding position with beautiful views to the Percuil River and National Trust countryside beyond.
This light and airy property has been in the ownership of the current family for around 17 years. Situated away from the hustle and bustle in the central village area, this family sized home has an attractive external appearance. In recent years the property has undergone modernisation with the installation of a bespoke fitted kitchen and utility by 'Out of Wood' both with electric underfloor heating as well as a stylish shower room upstairs.
A double garage connects to the property, which offers obvious potential for extension, subject to any necessary consents. The views enjoyed from the property encompass the village across to Summers Beach, St Mawes Harbour to the Percuil River and onto the National Trust owned St Anthony Headland.
Externally there is ample room for boat / caravan storage as well as outside sitting and entertaining space for relaxing.
A surprise addition is a further area of garden laid to grass, at the rear of the property.
Hillside Cottage has an established letting history being holiday let via Classic Cottages thus offering a healthy income which will appeal to the second home buyer. Equally, this well presented home is suited toward the family or retiring buyer as a permanent residence.
The accommodation comprises:
Ground Floor: Porch, Reception Hall, Lounge, Dining Room, Bespoke Kitchen, Utility Room, Cloakroom.
First Floor: Master Bedroom with En Suite Bathroom, 2 further double Bedrooms, Stylish Shower Room.
