This charming one double bedroom cottage would make a perfect first-time buy, investment or holiday bolt hole! With modern fixtures and fittings, a balcony overlooking the pretty garden, beautiful views and parking for two cars makes this is a very appealing property!
Immaculately presented and situated in a semi-rural spot on the edge of the hamlet of Duloe with superb views of the surrounding valley, this cottage has been tastefully modernised and offers well-proportioned living space throughout, whilst retaining quirky character features.
The village and civil parish of Duloe is a thriving community with local facilities including two primary schools and two churches, as well as a local public house; ‘The Plough’ offering traditional local Cornish hospitality with a cosy atmosphere. The village is best known for the smallest pre-historic stone circle, discovered in 1801 in a field opposite the parish church and well worth a visit. Well served by local amenities from the popular and thriving rural village of Pelynt, within 1 mile, you’ll find a local store, butcher and post office. There’s also a fish and chip shop, public house, restaurant, primary school, church, boarding kennels and cattery and a garage too. Neighbouring towns and villages such as Looe are only 4 miles away, Liskeard 5 miles, Fowey 10 miles (via ferry), and the city of Plymouth 21 miles away. The beautiful and unspoilt south Cornwall coastline with its numerous beaches, coves, inlets and estuaries and the South West Coast Path is easily accessible too. There is a main line train from Liskeard to London and a ferry service to France and Spain from Plymouth. The A38 (Devon Expressway) from Saltash joins the M5 at Exeter.

There is space for an automatic washing machine and a window to the rear. To the side is a stone built staircase to the first floor, with solid wooden treads, and an open storage area beneath.
