Bee Cottage, Terras Hill Lostwithiel
Guide price £645,000
Dating back to the late 1870s, this immaculate and spacious four bedroom restored Victorian residence, one of the most important homes in Lostwithiel, set with privacy in gardens of more than half an acre. The cottage boasts incredible views over the town and Fowey River valley visible from most of the house.
The historic old town of Lostwithiel is renowned for its range of antique and curio shops, good restaurants and public houses and an excellent range of local shopping. The town is located on the lowest bridging point of the River Fowey with its historic Norman bridge and just across the bridge will be found the main line railway station linking Paddington to Penzance with regular stops for the commuter. Close at hand are beautiful country walks including Restormel Road then leading to Restormel Castle, one of the finest remaining in the south west and maintained by English Heritage.
With its delightful location Bee Cottage features prominently on the western hillside of Lostwithiel. Being an impressive Victorian residence, the name cottage does not fit with the style but has high ceilings with a substantial number with period mouldings, a large and gracious hall with a beautifully maintained tessellated floor and a large galleried landing above. Perhaps, though not verified, the property stands on the site of an original cottage that formed part of Bee Park, a block of about three acres sold and recorded in a document dated 1799.
