Located just a 'stones throw' from Penryn's town centre and within easy reach of the university campus at Tremough, a well presented and surprisingly spacious cottage, providing two double bedroomed accommodation, well proportioned living room, separate kitchen with utility/rear porch, spacious dual aspect first floor bathroom, courtyard garden with a larger-than-average raised lawned garden.


Built, we understand, in the mid-1800's, Number 23 is a surprisingly spacious, mid-terraced town cottage, providing well presented and charming accommodation, with the advantage of a larger-than-average lawned garden raised above the courtyard, enjoying an open outlook over parts of Penryn to the front elevation.

The property has a classic granite stone facade and from the front door, an entrance hallway with stairs rising to the first floor galleried and landing and double doors to the full-depth living room with kitchen and utility room to the rear. The living room is open-plan and features attractive, traditional multi-pane sash windows to the front elevation and a generous ceiling height. The dining area features a fitted understair storage cupboard and door through to the fitted kitchen.

Upstairs, the two double bedrooms and dual aspect bathroom lead from the galleried landing. Leading from the utility room/porch, accessed to the rear of the kitchen, a small enclosed courtyard with staircase rising to the broad lawned garden with patio, mature bed and greenhouse.

23 Helston Road provides spacious, characterful and versatile accommodation and would suit permanent home and investment purchasers alike and, as the vendors' Sole Agents, it is without hesitation an early viewing appointment is recommended.


Helston Road is situated at the top of Penryn's rapidly developing town centre and, therefore, enjoys both a central and convenient location with the university campus at Tremough, just a short distance away. Penryn has been the subject of much inward investment following the continued expansion at the university, the waterside developments at Jubilee Wharf and Harbour Village and, of course, it's close proximity to Falmouth and the cathedral city of Truro.

Excellent day-to-day amenities are within yards of the cottage, including bars, public houses, convenient stores, shops and boutique and regular bus and rail services. Also nearby are junior and secondary schools, Penryn Railway Station (with services to Falmouth & Truro) and the port of Falmouth which is three miles distant, and Truro which is nine miles distant.
