Main Road, Ashton, Helston
Accessed via its own gated driveway, and situated in a delightful rural setting in the Cornish village of Ashton, is this detached, five bedroom farmhouse of immense charm and character. The residence, which benefits from oil fired central heating and double glazing, provides well proportioned accommodation with impressive feature fireplaces and an imposing local stone facade.
A real feature of the property is the large gardens which provide lawned areas, well established plants and shrubs and character stone walls. We are advised that planning permission has been granted in the garden to create an annexe which would seem ideal for a dependent relative. To the front of the property is an area of land which many may consider would provide the opportunity for development, again subject to any necessary planning and consents.
In brief, the accommodation comprises an entrance porch/sun room, hall, lounge, dining room, shower/utility room, kitchen/diner and rear porch. On the first floor is a bathroom and five bedrooms.
