Occupying an attractive, elevated position, at the head of this quiet no-through private lane, the foot of which is just a mere stone's throw from picturesque Port Navas Creek, a substantial, detached, individual house, dramatically remodelled, extended and improved by the current owners, providing faultlessly presented and extremely well proportioned 4 bedroom accommodation, set within intriguing, beautifully landscaped gardens with driveway parking, garage and superb summerhouse/garden office.


With all the hallmarks of a stunning contemporary home, 'Hove To' is, in fact, an older dwelling which has been completely remodelled, dramatically extended and updated to the highest standards by the current owners over the last fourteen years.

Occupying an elevated position towards the top of this quiet, private, semi-rural lane, 'Hove To' enjoys an attractive lightly wooded aspect to countryside on the outskirts of the village, and sits within intriguing, beautifully landscaped and superbly stocked low maintenance gardens, which feature a sweeping driveway with double gates, a broad paved sun terrace the breadth of the front of the property, and driveway parking in addition to a detached block-built garage, to the rear of which an architectural garden with gravelled terraces, raised planters, up-lighters and paved terracing, leads to an extremely versatile summerhouse, ideal also as a home office etc.

Benefiting from Propane gas fired central heating throughout, and high quality double glazing, the spacious, well proportioned and extremely well appointed accommodation comprises a double volume reception hall with vaulted ceiling and galleried landing, ground floor cloakroom/WC, double aspect lounge with glass-fronted multi-fuel stove, stunning family sized kitchen/dining room with bi-folding doors onto the south-facing sun terracing, separate utility room, ground floor master bedroom with dressing room and private en-suite shower room, fourth bedroom and, to the first floor, two further large double bedrooms, one with study/dressing room office, together with a family bathroom with separate shower cubicle.

With tasteful decorations and high quality floor coverings, 'Hove To' is a faultless home, ready to move straight into, ideal for families, retirement purchasers and second home owners alike, and an early viewing is unhesitatingly recommended.


Trewince Lane is a private lane of mainly detached individual properties, with 'Hove To' occupying a prominent yet secluded position at the head of the lane. Picturesque rural walks are 'on the doorstep' and, from the foot of the lane, a short walk leads to Port Navas Creek whose tidal waters lead onto the beautiful Helford River and sheltered day-sailing waters of Falmouth Bay beyond.

The well served villages of Mawnan Smith and Constantine are both within a few minutes' drive, providing many day-to-day amenities including primary schooling, doctors surgeries, stores and public houses. The port of Falmouth, recently voted by the readers of The Sunday Times as 'Britain's Best Place to Live', is approximately seven miles distant, and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's commercial, retailing, administrative and health centre, is within a thirty minute drive.
