The property is further warmed during the winter months by an impressive oil fired Aga which is used for additional cooking facilities, together providing permeating warmth throughout the building fabric. The home also boasts of a fabulous stone built open inglenook fireplace which is situated within the living room.

    The kitchen/diner is well equipped with a generous selection of oak fronted storage units, integrated appliances and quality honed granite work surfaces.

The garden also provides two wooden storage sheds (the main one is of a generous size), ample private parking and boat storage if required.

    Carne is a delightful sheltered Southern Helford creekside hamlet, offering a cluster of period cottages nestling beside the tidal waterside. The highly sought after residential village of Manaccan is situated within the gorgeous rural southern Helford. The village offers an excellent primary school, historic St Anthony Church, together with the New Inn public house. The nearby Helford village (approximately just over a mile away) is located in one of Cornwall's most picturesque iconic destinations, nestled amongst delightful creeks and inlets off the Helford river which separates both South and North Helford environs. The area is renowned for it's day sailing waters, wildlife and footpath walkers wishing to explore this gorgeous and tranquil setting. The village is complemented by a stunning and eclectic variety of attractive thatched and traditional slate roof cottages that spill down to the creekside. The famous thatched Shipwrights Arms is located in the centre of the village together with a village shop/store for everyday needs. Frenchman's Creek, immortalised by Daphne DeMaurier is nearby where one can appreciate the superb and idyllic surrounding countryside. St Anthony is just around St Dennis headland with the back drop of the iconic twelve century church set amongst wonderful gardens. A passenger ferry sails to the north side of the Helford giving access to Glendurgan and Trebah gardens considered to be some of the very finest the UK has to offer due to the exceptionally mild and warmer winter climate. The nearby historic market town of Helston stands at the gateway of the Lizard Peninsula which is Britain's most southerly point, which gives access to some of the most dramatic coastal scenery and beaches the UK has to offer. The coastal and inland villages are most picturesque which add to the overall charm of this delightful and highly regarded peninsula. Helston has an eclectic array of individual shops, well regarded schools (both junior and senior) sports centre, doctor's surgeries, pharmacies and a cinema. The area boasts some outstanding walks and scenery nearby, eg Helston's boating lake through the National Trust land towards the outstanding Loe Pool and Loe Bar with the sea nearby.
