Roskrow, Penryn


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Occupying an attractive semi-rural setting, in the picturesque rural hamlet of Roskrow, conveniently situated close to the outskirts of Penryn and nearby port of Falmouth, a beautifully re-modelled and updated cottage, providing superbly presented and appointed 3-bedroomed (including through room) accommodation, with open-plan and interconnecting living space, private terrace and garden, ample storage, allocated and visitors parking and, from the first floor, far-reaching countryside views.


Quietly situated in a farmstead, courtyard-style location, between Roskrow Manor and Roskrow Barton Farm, Number 4 Roskrow Cottages will prove of particular appeal to those seeking a charming family, retirement or investment home, in a small semi-rural community which remains close to the nearby university town of Penryn and port of Falmouth.

Indeed, the university campus at Tremough is within a few minutes' drive, and the A39 provides direct and easy access to Falmouth, Helston and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial and administrative centre, approximately ten miles distant. Safe sandy bathing beaches along the south Cornish coastline are within a few minutes' drive, as are perhaps the country's finest day-sailing waters on the Carrick Roads (Fal Estuary), Falmouth Bay and nearby Helford River. Consequently, sailing facilities abound in the area and numerous clubs provide recreational opportunities for sailors of all abilities.

We, the vendor's Sole Agent, strongly recommend all interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.


The cottages at Roskrow Manor comprise a short terrace of just four properties which, we understand, date back over one hundred years and were formerly part of the neighbouring manor house, over the grounds of which views are enjoyed to miles of surrounding countryside. Number 4 enjoys an end of terrace position, offering much improved and re-modelled three-bedroomed, two reception roomed accommodation, beautifully presented and appointed, and benefiting from uPVC double glazed windows and an oil fired central heating system throughout, yet retaining much charm and character of the period.

Approached over a shared front forecourt, providing a sunny sitting-out terrace and path leading from the allocated parking area, a good sized entrance/utility provides ample storage with a door leading into the magnificent open-plan kitchen and dining room, with Aga, granite worktops, bespoke kitchen, larder and island unit with oak worktop, and open to the dining room with wood-burning stove and timber flooring, interconnecting to the sitting room, with double French doors opening onto the private raised deck and beautifully landscaped, enclosed courtyard-style garden.

At the foot of the staircase, an area, interconnecting between the sitting room and dining room, which can be used as a home office with, from the first floor landing, a superbly reappointed bathroom suite, bedroom two and currently, a through bedroom (originally divided to provide a separate room and corridor) leading to the master bedroom which enjoys the fine far-reaching views to miles of open countryside.

The well enclosed, decked and landscaped courtyard-style garden to the rear and traffic-free nature of the setting, provides a safe location for those with children and pets.
