About this Property

An unusual, versatile and adaptable home, full of character and charm. Consisting of the original cottage, thought to date from the 18th Century, plus an attached converted former barn which combined offer generous 4/5 bedroomed accommodation with two office spaces and two staircases. In addition, there is another single storey barn, currently used as a garage/workshop but with the potential to convert, subject to any necessary planning requirements, into a wonderful work from home space or another dwelling. There is the opportunity to split the cottage and barn back into two and accommodate 2 or 3 different households or generations or use some as letting or holiday accommodation to provide the owners with an income.


In a sunny position on the side of a river valley in an attractive rural hamlet with approximately 1.65 acres of grounds, parking, and a swimming pool.


Well kept and presented by the current owners and likely to attract a good deal of interest in today’s busy market. Early viewing recommended.




Burras is a rural hamlet approximately halfway (five miles each way) between the major towns of Helston and Redruth so is within reasonable driving distance of the major transport links, schools and shops. There are country walks on your doorstep and beaches of both the north and south coasts within a 10 mile drive. An attractive and conveniently central position from which to access all that West Cornwall has to offer.
