A particularly versatile and well proportioned modern detached house, constructed approximately 10 years ago, offering superbly appointed and flexible accommodation with 4/5 bedrooms, facing south on the outskirts of Penryn in the sought-after St Gluvias area, set within well stocked gardens, perfectly positioned for the nearby port of Falmouth, cathedral city of Truro and superb sailing waters of the Fal Estuary.


Occupying a sunny, south-facing position, on the extreme northern fringe of the booming university town of Penryn, in the highly regarded St Gluvias area, a detached, individual residence of exceptional design and extremely well appointed throughout, completed in 2007. Built within the established and well stocked gardens to the side and rear, 'Sunrise' provides light, spacious and versatile accommodation under a high quality steeply pitched natural slate roof and with smooth rendered elevation, uPVC facias, soffits, rainwater goods and double glazing with external slate sills. An oak floored reception hall provides a most attractive introduction to the property with staircase rising to the first floor landing over, ground floor cloakroom off and doors to a well proportioned study, ground floor bedroom suite, magnificent 'double' reception room and lavishly appointed kitchen.

The living room features a contemporary flue less gas fire and casement door with side screens opening onto a south-facing sun deck which enjoys the attractive sunny outlook over the town and to the outskirts of Penryn beyond. An archway interconnects the living room with a double aspect dining room which, in turn, has a connecting door with a fully fitted kitchen with Stoves range cooker, automatic dishwasher and high-gloss cream units with tall brushed steel handles, complementary tiled splashbacks, brushed steel light switches and power points, and ceramic tiled flooring. An archway from the kitchen then leads into an equally well appointed utility room with LG American-style fridge/freezer, door to the side terrace and gardens, and courtesy door to a large integral garage - 4.83m(15'10 ) x 5.33m(17'6 ) - with electronic sliding up-and-over-door.

To the first floor a landing leads to a second bedroom suite, a family bathroom/WC, once again superbly fitted with a contemporary white suite, Hansgrohe taps and fully ceramic tiled walls and floors, as well as to two further bedrooms, all of which feature telephone points and TV aerial sockets.

A Worcester boiler within the garage with computerised switching and Megaflo high efficiency hot water cylinder with immersion heater. To the front of the property there is a broad brick pavia forecourt which provides ample private off-road parking in addition to the integral double garage. Well stocked gardens with various flowering plants and shrubs to the side and rear include lawned terraces, shrub borders, lower level lawned area with steps up to the large timber sun deck - 4.27m(14'0 ) x 3.20m(10'6 ) - with timber balustrading, further exterior lighting and door from the living accommodation. A highly useful garden room/cellar provides versatile ancillary space with both light and power connected and underneath the sundeck, is a glazed greenhouse for keen horticulturists.


Durgan Lane is located on the northern fringe of the St Gluvias area of Penryn, approximately three miles from the port of Falmouth, nine miles from the cathedral city of Truro and four miles from the sailing haven of Flushing and superb boating amenities at Mylor Yacht Harbour. The ancient borough town of Penryn is now home, at Tremough, to the expanding University of Cornwall which, no doubt, will continue to benefit from high levels of investment in the area.

Bus and rail services from Penryn lead to both Falmouth and Truro, from where there is a direct rail link to London (Paddington), journey time approximately four and a half hours. Regular domestic flights from Newquay airport (approximately forty minutes) provide easy and rapid access out of the county, with the duchy's superb range of leisure amenities all within easy reach, including safe, sandy south coast beaches, cliff and creekside walks, National Maritime Museum at Falmouth, Tate Gallery at St Ives, Hall for Cornwall at Truro, Eden Project near St Austell and numerous golf courses etc.
