About the Property and Location

Aptly named, The Carpenters Cottage, the property was originally the home of the village carpenter who would have undertaken woodwork for the villagers and local businesses, including the Church. The cottage has undergone many improvements over the years and is currently used as a successful holiday cottage. From the granite walls, to the beamed ceilings, clome style fireplace to eaves structure to the first floor, the property exudes charm and character, but it doesn’t stop there … a contemporary elegance has been incorporated with the addition of a family room which leads to the garden. This room is generous in size and light, having full width patio doors. Keep those toes cosy with the benefit of underfloor heating. The property also has a double garage plus parking with potential to extend to the side of the property. The village of Luxulyan is well respected, with its warm community spirit, friendly local hostelry, village store (yes they sell pasties!) and post office, primary school, village Church and railway station (branch line). For those wishing to purchase as a continued holiday let, the property is just a short distance from the World Famous Eden Project. Enjoy a walk through the tranquil Luxulyan Valley, with its natural-looking slopes, mature trees and trilling streams. The Treffry viaduct, with a height of 27 metres, crosses the valley with the Clay Trails, a network of walking, cycling and riding trails, close by meandering through mid-Cornwall's China Clay Country. The market town of St Austell is just four miles distant and offers a comprehensive range of amenities including shopping complex, mainline railway station to London Paddington, Leisure Centre, Library, Cinema, Bowling Alley and a range of public houses. In addition there are primary and secondary schools and Cornwall College.
