Chocolate box cottage in sought after Stithians sells in a matter of days

Fri 09 Sep 2016

Perfect presentation and a quality finish played a huge part in the swift sale of a chocolate box style cottage in Stithians, according to our Redruth office.


The first viewing at Brooklyn, a three bedroomed, detached, stone-built property in the popular village, took place the very day it came on to the market. That was the first of 21 viewings which led to six offers. We secured the sale less than two weeks later.


“The property is absolutely gorgeous, but what gave it an extra edge was the immaculate presentation and top quality finish both inside and out. Even the outbuildings were pristine,” said Gail Daddow, a Negotiator at the Redruth office.


The property also had the advantage of original fireplaces, exposed beams and stonework – all enhanced by a bespoke modern kitchen with granite work surfaces, solid wood floors and an oil-fired Aga.


The outside space added an extra level of attraction, featuring a walled lawned garden area with apple trees, bay trees, roses, herb garden, vegetable patch, far reaching countryside views and a shed with light and power connected. The property also has a paved garden at the rear with access to an outbuilding with light, power and water connected and potential to develop into extra accommodation, with the necessary permissions.


Gail added: “The house had been owned by the same family for 28 years, but they had maintained and updated it with outstanding care and attention to detail. A fantastic property that was a pleasure to sell.”
