Beautifully presented rare gem! Which we are told it dates from the 17th Century and would probably be one of the oldest in Stratton and in its history was the old print shop hence “Printers”.

Stratton is one of the ancient towns of Cornwall and features in the Domesday Book. At one time it was the centre for the area and boasted a host of businesses trades and shops, a bustling market and some fourteen pubs! Today Stratton is the much quieter neighbour to the busy seaside resort of Bude which is just a few minutes' drive away, although take a walk around Stratton and much of its history can still be seen.

The current owner has lived here for some seventeen or so years. The property overall will be found in superb condition from top to bottom and has been meticulously cared for and maintained over the period of time of this ownership.
The property comprises three bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a downstairs bathroom, a lounge, a dining room and a large loft access which possibly may come for conversion at some point.

There is a front door to the property off the street, but in the main the property is accessed at the side in a small, private courtyard area.

The Lounge 19' 9” x 12' 7” (6.02m x 3.84m)

A good sized and comfortable lounge with inglenook fireplace and a wood burning stove, a point for a TV and other points. Two windows look onto the front elevation of the property, one of which is a bay window with a window seat. There is a feature natural stone wall to one end, two pendant style lights, a very good quality fitted carpet.

The Dining Room 15' 0” x 10' 11” (4.57m x 3.33m)

Ample dining space for eight to ten people the dining room has a high quality fitted loop pile carpet; this carpet runs through much of the property. The walls are decorative plaster type with power sockets. There is evidence of an old fireplace or doorway which still has an exposed original wooden lintel in it and there is a further fireplace which is now a decorative feature. The room has beams, there is a window seat with the window looking onto the courtyard.

The Kitchen 16' 9” x 13' 7” (5.12m x 4.14m)

The kitchen has a very good quality, grey vinyl fitted floor covering, a central heating radiator and a fluorescent light. A feature of the kitchen is the wooden ceiling. There are ample wall units with both eye-level cupboards and floor cupboards and the units have a grey Formica type finish with washed ash door fronts. There are points for a washing machine and a dryer and there is a point for a cooker (not included in the sale). There is a window to the rear elevation of the property, a window to the side elevation of the property and a cupboard in what was the feature fireplace, now making a good storage point. There are ample plug sockets in the kitchen, and this is also where the Ariston boiler is.

Downstairs WC and Shower

Off the kitchen is a downstairs WC, with a white WC and a white wash hand basin. This room is finished in plastic wall cladding and there is also a shower, so this really is a wet room. The shower is fed from the main water system and has a thermostatic control with a stainless-steel shower head. This WC has an obscure glass UPVC double-glazed window.

First Floor

Master Bedroom 14' 11” x 14' 0” (4.55m x 4.27m)

For a cottage style property the master bedroom is a very spacious room, beautifully presented with a quality fitted carpet. There is a skylight and a mini skylight and a centre pendant light. The room has beamed features and the original windows look out to the courtyard side of the property. Painted in white with white ceilings and it has a central heating radiator and ample power points.

Landing / sitting area

The landing area is a really nice area with central heating radiator, loft access, and access to the bathroom. Again we see a feature wooden wall, which is typical of the age of this property.

Family Bathroom 6' 8” x 10' 3” (2.04m x 3.13m)

Another good sized room the family bathroom has a window to the courtyard side of the property, there is a Mira shower from the main heating system, a white toilet with cistern, a roll-top bath with legs and then a blue feature wall.

A single bedroom and overlooks Fore Street, again this has a centre pendant light, plenty of space for a wardrobe, the same quality fitted carpet, power points, a central heating radiator and a centre pendant light.

Loft room

Accessed via a small staircase and in the roof of the property, is a large loft which would possibly have some potential for a conversion or the creation of another room, subject to all the necessary planning conditions. Setting that aside this is a useful space for storage of all the things that one wants to store like boxes of clothes and suitcases and so on.


The pretty garden courtyard has a block paved pathway which leads to the entrance door. There is an area to one side that is useful for pots and plants. Gated access leads out to Fore Street.
