Cornish cottage

VALLEY COTTAGE sits in a beautiful Cornish valley, adjoining a less than picturesque garage and piggery. However, planning permission exists for the garage to be converted into living accommodation with another storey built on top and faced with the stone facing which covers the rest of the house, and another extension to be knocked down. Permission also exists for the piggery to be turned into a garage and a new driveway to be laid from the road. It could be turned into a substantial four-reception, four- bedroom house. About pounds 50,000 would do it, suggests estate agents Miller & Son, who are selling the property - currently a two-up two-down. With small orchard, it has two paddocks suitable for horses and lies in a sheltered valley with a stream running through and with an old water wheel. Offers over pounds 100,000 are invited (01726 754115).
