Property of the Week - An exquisite character cottage on the edge of the Lanhydrock estate


Nestling in an idyllic rural position on the edge of The National Trust Lanhydrock Estate, Cross Cottage is perfectly situated to explore the picturesque network of unspoilt riverside and woodland walks around Respryn and the River Fowey.

Understood to have been constructed around the mid 19th Century, Cross Cottage, situated at Waterlake, has been the subject of careful restoration to create an exquisite character cottage of great comfort and style. The two-bedroom accommodation has been thoughtfully designed and appointed with an eye for detail and now offers immaculate living areas that perfectly blend wonderful character detailing with a contemporary finish.

Boasting an attractive symmetrical facade dominated by the three first floor gabled windows and the handsome gabled porch, the cottage features original leaded windows to the front whilst many of the others have been replaced with bespoke oak framed double glazed units.

To the front of the property is a Grade II listed Celtic cross, thought to be medieval or earlier, forming a delightful central focal point to the granite chipped courtyard.

The manageable grounds continue around the cottage with wonderful vantage points capitalising on the fabulous rural views including a raised sun terrace approached from the guest bedroom. On the opposite side of the country lane is a timber garage and off-road parking.

In summary, a truly outstanding opportunity to acquire one of the prettiest cottages to come to the market in recent times and considered eminently suitable as either a charming main residence or idyllic second home with track record as a holiday let.
