Set in a peaceful countryside location, yet only 15 minutes' walk to Perranporth's beach, shops and bars, The Rosery is a lovely traditional stone Cornish cottage which has recently been lovingly renovated and redecorated.
Entry to the house is into the utility room which has a flagstone floor, sink, washing machine, tumble dryer, space for coats and shoes, and a separate downstairs WC. Through a glass panelled door, the kitchen has been thoughtfully and tastefully decorated to make the most of the old cottage features while also being light and comfortable.
The kitchen is fully equipped with induction range cooker, microwave, fridge / freezer and dishwasher. There are ample wooden worksurfaces, a breakfast bar with two stools, a deep sink and slate tiled floor. A low doorframe and small step lead down into the open plan sitting and dining room.
A light and spacious room, the large table with eight chairs provides a sociable area to eat or play games. Deep window seats, a low beamed ceiling and slate floor retain the cottage's character and a door opens out from the dining room to the enclosed garden, perfect on summer days. The comfortable sitting room is furnished with a large grey corner sofa, dark blue armchair, TV with Amazon Firestick, and DVD player, and a log burner for chillier days (the property is heated by oil central heating).
Wooden painted stairs ascend to the upper floor which has wooden floors throughout, three bedrooms and the family bathroom. A double room with chest of drawers, large mirror and quirky copper pipe lamp enjoys garden and countryside views from the window. The second bedroom is furnished with a single bed with pull out single bed below, and clothes rails.
Up a high step and through a narrow door, is the large and light master bedroom. With windows on three walls making the most of the beautiful views, the room has a king-sized bed and plenty of storage.
The bathroom, with lovely patterned floor tiles, is fitted with a free-standing roll top bath with shower attachment, separate large (step in) shower cubicle with rain shower head, WC, basin and heated towel rail.
Outside, the garden is laid to lawn with a stepping stone path down to the back gate and washing line. A bistro set by the dining room garden door offers a lovely place to sit out in the sun with a glass of wine and listen to the birdsong, and there's another seating area on a raised patio, with garden furniture. An outside hot shower provides a place to rinse off after a day at the beach.
The garden, which is significantly higher at one end than the road below it, is fully enclosed, however children should be supervised when playing near the low fence. A parking area for two cars is at the bottom of the garden steps, and the house can either be accessed up these (slightly uneven) stone steps and through the garden, or along the road and through a gate to the house higher up.
The Rosery is in the hamlet of Bolingey, a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the seaside, and less than a five-minute stroll from The Bolingey Inn - a delightful 17th century pub serving food and local ales. There are many activities on the doorstep including beautiful walks, horse riding and golf, and Perranporth's three-mile expanse of soft golden sand and good surf is only one mile away.
It is also perfectly positioned to explore the rest of Cornwall; the cathedral city of Truro, beautiful beaches of Newquay, marine heritage of Falmouth and art of St Ives are all within easy reach by car, as is the Eden Project and many National Trust properties and gardens amongst many other attractions.
