There is also an existing hard standing base area for the erection of a double garage with room above. This planning consent is open ended as the works have already commenced.
The Old Rectory is situated immediately opposite the Parish Church. Although the Parish has some 3,500 inhabitants, the once bustling village of St Enoder Churchtown no longer exists. The smaller houses have become ruins and disappeared while some walls of the more substantial properties have become field boundaries. Despite this relative isolation, the A30 is only a short drive away and provides access to the principle Cornish towns and the M5 at Exeter. Summercourt offers some facilities including a post office/general store, chapel and public house. The town of Newquay (7 miles) is within easy reach as is the Cathedral City of Truro (11 miles) and both offer good shopping centres and schooling facilities. The North coast offers a choice of sandy beaches and there are golf courses at Newquay and Truro.
The following services are available; mains electricity, mains water, private drainage, broadband and telephone line. Oil fired central heating providing both hot water and heating via underfloor heating at ground floor level and radiators on first floor level.
There is current planning permission granted for a detached double garage with room above. There is also recently lapsed permission for an extension to the main property. Please contact Country & Waterside Prestige for more information.
