Thu 28 Jul 2016

The Django is a spacious three bedroomed bungalow with spectacular rural views in quiet Springfield Close, Polgooth - a sought after historic mining village a couple of miles from St Austell.

It’s an attractive property with three bedrooms, a large lounge with patio doors opening onto a balcony and an archway into a dining area, a fitted kitchen, utility room, cloakroom and family bathroom.

Behind the house is a mature, enclosed garden with the added benefits of a greenhouse and a good sized vegetable plot. The driveway leads to an integral garage and has space for off-road parking.

The village of Polgooth has a distinguished mining history dating back to the late 1500s. In the 18th century the tin mine was the most lucrative in the UK - employing more than 1000 people and described by many as the greatest in the world. During its heyday the mine’s shareholders included engineers James Watt and Matthew Boulton, industrialist John Wilkinson, landowner John Wilkinson, potter Josiah Wedgwood and his son John who founded the Royal Horticultural Society and Cornish entrepreneur, Charles Rashleigh, who built Charlestown harbour to export tin. 

Central to the village now is the 16th century pub, The Polgooth Inn, renowned for its great food and the shop and post office.

Jules Harrison, Manager of the central and south east Cornwall team, said: “It’s a beautiful property in a sought after area. The views are spectacular, particularly from the balcony, which makes a very special outside dining spot.”

The Django is available to rent immediately for £995 per calendar month. Full details and viewing appointments are available Tel: 01726 72236.
