AN ATTRACTIVE GRADE II LISTED FORMER FARMHOUSE LOCATED IN THE PRETTY VILLAGE OF MADRON WITH ITS IMPOSING CHURCH. THE PROPERTY HAS BEEN EXTENDED AND IMPROVED BY THE PRESENT VENDOR AND ALSO ENJOYS A WEALTH OF PERIOD FEATURES. Holly Cottage is offered for the first time in 45 years. The cottage has spacious living accommodation with five bedrooms and is set in pleasant enclosed walled gardens to front and rear. On the ground floor there are three reception rooms, kitchen and a conservatory/garden room which overlooks a terraced sun patio, while on the first floor there are bedrooms hosting distant views over Mounts Bay and towards St Michaels Mount as well as a separate bathroom and shower room. The conservatory was added in the mid 1990's and a new boiler was installed in 2013. Inside there are many surviving historic features, including the original dog leg staircase with vertical boarded paneling. The house was remodeled in the early part of the 19th century and the door surrounds with other joinery survives from this period of the house. Situated less than two miles to the north of Penzance, the historic village of Madron is home to the beautiful 15th Century Church of St Maddern and on the edge of Madron is Trengwainton Garden, a subtropical garden owned by the National Trust. The whole area is a haven for walkers being surrounded by moorland, much of it on higher ground with spectacular views of Mounts Bay, St Michael's Mount and The Lizard to the south and the rugged splendour of the cliffs and the Atlantic Ocean to the north. The village has a school, public house and historic church whilst the neighbouring village of Heamoor offers a bakers, general store, fish and chip shop and pharmacy. Penzance itself has a more comprehensive range of commercial, educational and leisure facilities as well as a mainline rail link to London Paddington.
