Pheasant Cottage is approached down a long private wooded drive where upon you find this magical cottage in a sylvan setting. The property is secluded without being isolated enjoying a high degree of privacy. Formally a gardeners cottage of the Clowance Estate whose 96 acres of grounds are on the doorstep. The frontage is deceptive, although described as a cottage its dimensions are more akin to a house (see photos). Looking behind the facade you will discover a rate gem of a walled garden which has a Japanese water garden and bridge.
The current owner completely refurbished the property when they bought it in 1996 and have made it into a fantastic family home. Unusually for a cottage from this period the rooms are light and airy and feel very spacious.
This Grade II listed home has accommodation over two floors with a large farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room, a triple aspect living room with French windows that opens onto the gardens, a conservatory/dining room, study and utility room with a guest WC/shower room on the ground floor. On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are large doubles, a single and a large family bathroom all with views overlooking the garden.
The large walled garden has been split into separate areas from where you can sit and enjoy the flowers throughout the seasons. There are a variety of mature plants and shrubs, rare ferns and a very productive kiwi plant. There are two fish ponds with a romantic Japanese style wooden bridge – a lovely place to sit on hot summer days listening to the fountain. Outside the living room is a sunny terraced area for alfresco dining. At the bottom of the garden is a lawned area which leads to a very large workshop, a large garage and further shed. The drive way in front of the house is owned by the estate. The house has a right of way across this and there is ample parking and a double car port.
Pheasant Cottage is very well serviced by the local village Praze an Beeble which is about mile away which has a Post Office, convenience store, doctors surgery, a fish and chip shop and where you will find the local pub St Aubyn Arms which serves freshly prepared local food and local ales. The towns of Hayle and Redruth offer supermarkets and further facilities and are a short drive away. The coast is also close by with the beautiful fishing village of Porthleven on the south coast approx. 7 miles away whilst Portreath on the north coast with its well-known surfing beach is approx. 8 miles.
