Bluebell Cottage is a delightful and very pretty detached four bedroom property situated in the highly desirable and sought after village of Godolphin Cross. The village, with its thriving primary school, has become renowned for its Xmas Lights and there is a thriving community association offering many activities. The National Trust property of Godolphin House is situated on the outskirts of the village and new volunteers would always be welcome. Godolphin House has important ancient gardens and within these grounds the village of Godolphin holds its annual Summer Fete. The village is surrounded by numerous footpaths and scenic walks and the view from the top of Godolphin Hill is of both North and South coasts and all the nearby locations including The Lizard, The Mount and St Ives. Within a 15 minute drive is the market town of Helston, the beaches at Praa Sands and Hayle and the harbour of Porthleven with its many fine restaurants (two of which are bib gourmand).
The property is located behind a large canopied gated entrance and is therefore hidden from the village road. It is situated in one third of an acre of a stunning south facing garden which is extremely private and not overlooked. The present owners have kept chickens and ducks ( chicken shed remains) and consequently the garden is well fenced and is both chicken and dog proof. Recent improvements have included new UPVC windows and doors throughout and a new roof and chimney with associated insulation and dormer to the upstairs bathroom. The immaculately presented cottage is entered by the entrance porch to the hallway with wooden floor which gives access to all rooms and to a turning staircase leading to three of the four internal bedrooms. The kitchen/diner has a wooden floor and features customised kitchen units, a range cooker and belfast sink. The dominant feature is the large inglenook fireplace with multi-fuel burner adjacent to the dining area. This triple aspect room really does have that 'cottage feel'. The kitchen/diner leads into the utility room which is spacious and light with a large velux window and external door. Historically this was the stable but now contains the oil boiler for the central heating, hot water tank, belfast sink, lots of storage cupboards and, of course, space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble drier. From the hallway a door leads to the lounge which has a wooden floor and has views to the garden and further windows to the hall and conservatory. The lounge has a beamed ceiling and a feature marble fireplace with inset fire. The turning staircase leads upstairs to three bedrooms and a bathroom, a half landing has a window onto the rear courtyard. All three bedrooms have windows on the south aspect overlooking the garden. The bathroom was renewed less the two years ago. The remaining rooms could (and previously have been) be isolated from the rest of the cottage to form a separate annexe. From the entrance hall, a substantial internal door leads to an inner lobby which gives access to a second staircase leading to a fourth but height restricted bedroom. From the inner lobby a door opens to a large shower room. The inner lobby continues to 'The Snug' , which historically was the coach house attached to the cottage and is now another reception room with granite fireplace and inset electric fire. From the Snug, doors lead to the outside and to the conservatory which has current planning permission to be incorporated fully into the house. Further income potential can be realised from the detached studio annexe in the courtyard.
The Studio has separate living and sleeping areas together with a shower room windows to the courtyard and garden. This has been successfully used both as B and B and as guest accommodation.
Outline planning has been granted to build a detached dwelling in the garden should this be desired and current planning exists to extend the existing cottage.
