AN ATTRACTIVE DETACHED PERIOD PROPERTY SET IN A QUIET POSITION IN A POPULAR VILLAGE In the picturesque hamlet of Bridge lies 'The Cottage at Bridge', a delightful, detached, doublefronted property occupying a beautiful setting and enjoying mature, well stocked, southfacing private gardens. The accommodation has character and charm being both well planned and presented. Replacement sashstyle double glazing has been fitted alongside the many period features which include exposed timber beams, granite walls, a granite fireplace and a traditional Cornish range. A woodburning stove with full oil-fired central heating has been installed. The conservatory, a recent addition, extends onto the south-facing garden from the large living room. This room also features two window seats, a large granite fireplace with woodburning stove, sections of exposed stone walls and painted timber ceiling beams. The separate dining room is well proportioned with exposed timber beams and a feature granite wall, an original Cornish range, two large windows looking out onto the stream, an entrance doorway and stairs rising to the first floor. The kitchen is light, spacious and well appointed, accessed by a separate door it leads onto a very useful utility area with side porch, and access to the downstairs WC and study/bedroom four. From the first-floor landing there are three double bedrooms, two of which enjoy an outlook over the south facing gardens along with a family sized shower room/WC. Mature gardens complete the property with a private driveway passing across the front and on to the two detached garages where additional parking is also to be found. This property is surrounded by its own land on three sides with the fourth adjacent an idyllic picturesque small stream. The land, particularly where the garages are located, would lend itself to future development for an additional detached dwelling. In all, a rare opportunity to secure an idyllic Cornish cottage with much potential in this soughtafter hamlet in Constantine. We anticipate considerable interest in this excellent property and recommend an early appointment is made to view.
