Downend Cottage stands in a superb rural position amidst a small cluster of properties that make up the hamlet of Trenance. The property is less than half a mile from the picturesque cove of Porthoustock, with easy access to the South West Coast Path.
The nearby village of St Keverne (approximately 1 Mile) is a particularly well served with an excellent range of day-to-day amenities including butchers, newsagents, village stores/sub post office, public houses, church and doctors surgery. A regular bus service leads to the nearby market town of Helston, approximately twelve miles distant, with a full
range of shopping and commercial facilities.
The cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative and health centre, is an approximate forty five minute drive away, from where there is a main-line rail link to London.

Downend Cottage is an immensely characterful
cottage reportedly dating from the mid 1600's
nestled in the heart of Trenance. This idyllic
detached home has a superb balance of charm
and quality and has been extended to provide a
four-bedroomed home which sympathetically
and successfully combines many traditional
character features with contemporary high
quality fittings.
A split-level entrance hall affectionately known
as "The Great Hall" provides an introduction to
the property with a beautiful double aspect
lounge and sitting room all within the original
cottage. The kitchen & dining area are part of
the modern open plan extension with slate flag
flooring throughout. The Kitchen is
comprehensively appointed with a fine range of
wall and base units with integrated appliances
and extensive polished black granite
worksurfaces. Double doors open onto a
paved south-facing sun terrace. A highly useful
utility room again features slate flooring
throughout with doors leading to a ground floor
cloakroom/WC and gardens..
An intriguing landing with low, deep silled
window to the rear elevation and part barrelled
ceiling leads to four first floor bedrooms, three
of which enjoy a delightful outlook over the
front gardens, one of which, the master, is a
lavish suite with fabulous double aspect
bedroom with vaulted ceiling and private ensuite
shower room off. In addition, there is an
exceptionally well appointed family
bathroom/WC, again containing high quality
contemporary white sanitary ware and
complementary ceramic wall and floor tiling.

Standing within its own surrounding gardens
Downend Cottage is set back from a quiet
roadside, with a gravelled driveway and large
forecourt providing extensive parking facilities.
The grounds offer a large triple garage with
attached utility with power and plumbing, two
sun terraces, large lawned garden and upper
