IN THE OWNER'S WORDS
We shall be very sad to leave Vine Cottage with its superb location, fabulous uninterrupted views and many varied walks direct from the property - yet only a 5 minute drive to Truro. We have appreciated the spacious rooms and facilities within the house and the attractive garden with its variety of plants and shrubs.
Having been significantly enlarged over the years by the current owners, this is a fine country property with a delightful rural outlook yet within easy reach of Truro and Falmouth.
A covered porch gives access to the Reception hall, from which there are doors to the Cloak room and Dining room. The slate floor of the hall continues into the Cloak room, the Dining room and the Study.
The Dining room has a feature fireplace, French doors opening to a patio at the rear of the house, and a door to the Study, which has an additional storage area (currently lined with book shelves) and French doors opening to a patio at the side of the house.
The Kitchen has a range of shaker style cabinetry with a Belfast sink and surrounding granite work surfaces under a window that offers superb views of the neighbouring farmland. The Kitchen has a tiled floor, a vaulted ceiling, a Neff double oven and gas hob, a cupboard suitable for a pantry and spaces for a dishwasher and a tall fridge/freezer.
The Utility room has matching shaker style cabinets and matching floor tiles, an additional sink, a broom cupboard and space for another kitchen appliance. There is a door to the side patio.
An enclosed straight-run staircase separates the Dining room from the near 25 long Sitting room. This room also features French doors out to the rear of the house, a feature fireplace and double glass doors to the south facing Sun room which overlooks the front gardens. A door from here leads to a useful Laundry room and French doors open to the third patio at the end of the house.
Upstairs there are three double Bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms in addition to the family Bathroom.To the side of the property there is a large detached double Garage with double powered doors and an Annexe above. Attached to the garage is a porch and door to a stairway leading to a large Bedroom and en-suite shower room. This room could easily become an Office.
GROUNDS AND GARDENS
A gravel drive with parking space for many vehicles leads to the detached double garage at the side of the house. The gardens to the front and side of the property are wooded and planted with a number of mature plants creating privacy while still allowing ample light to enjoy a summer s day. A lawned area at the rear of the house is separated from the neighbouring fields by a ha-ha. This architectural element allows uninterrupted views from the lawn, patio and rear of the house while defining the property boundary.
Feock has long been regarded as one of the most sought-after villages in Cornwall. Located at the head of the Carrick Roads, the surrounding countryside is exquisitely beautiful, much being within the ownership of the National Trust.
At Feock, Loe Beach provides moorings, boat lay ups, sailing school and café. Just over a mile away is the historic King Harry Ferry. Established in 1888 it links Feock, Truro and the surrounding areas to St. Mawes, and the beautiful beaches and walks of the Roseland Peninsula. Less than 4 miles to the north is the Cathedral City of Truro, containing an excellent shopping centre and main line railway station.
There is a bus service to Truro and excellent State and Private schools in the area. To the south lies Falmouth and running between the two are some of the finest day sailing waters in the country
