Lantern Cottage is a charming Grade II listed thatched cottage with parking and only a 400 yard walk to the sandy beach of Trevaunance Cove

This beautifully presented chocolate box lies in a green valley that leads down to Trevaunance Cove beach and the picturesque village of St. Agnes with her excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants is less than 1 mile away.

The property boasts a wealth of character including open beamed ceilings, inglenook feature fireplace, original panelled walls over cob, and stable front and back doors. The property benefits from larger than expected front and back gardens, neither of which are overlooked. The back garden consists of a terraced lawn and extensive planting. Towards the top of the back garden, there are some delightful Marine and coastal views of Trevaunance Cove. A patio area is provided for outside dining.

On entering the property there is a large delightful lounge with an inglenook fireplace, and feature glazed windows to front and rear. The lounge has two leather sofas, a Persian rug, colour television with DVD, and music system. Adjacent to the lounge is a spacious dining room, with feature fireplace and large oak dining table with seating for 6. The charming cottage-style kitchen incorporates butler sink, washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, oven, hob and is fully equipped. There is a stable door, which leads to the back garden.

Wooden stairs lead to the first floor landing of which the three bedrooms and bathroom are separately accessed, through feature panelled doors. The double bedroom has an ornate metal bed with a voile tester, antique wardrobe and chest of drawers, and bonnet ceiling. The twin bedroom has a bonnet ceiling, with matching cherry wood bedsteads and furniture. The single bedroom has a raised fitted bed, and wooden furniture to match. There is also a large Victorian style bathroom, with fitted vanity unit, panelled bath with shower over. The cottage has central heating plus electric fires in the lounge and dining room fireplaces.

To the front of the property, there are 2 parking spaces.
