DESCRIPTION

In a small, select, private close, nearby the beautiful tree-lined creeks of the Helford River and well served village of Mawnan Smith, a broad and imposing, detached, individual bungalow residence, comprehensively and most tastefully updated by the present owners, providing well proportioned and superbly appointed 3-bedroomed main accommodation, together with stunning, recently constructed 2-storey annexe, set in beautifully landscaped and stocked gardens which overlook and open directly onto Budock Vean Golf Course.

THE PROPERTY

'Halverrick' has, over the last four years, been comprehensively updated, improved and extended by the present owners, to provide a superb and extremely high quality two-family home in this, one of south Cornwall's most desirable locations.

Set within superbly stocked and landscaped gardens which, to the rear, open onto and overlook Budock Vean Golf Course and unspoilt countryside beyond, 'Halverrick' provides faultlessly maintained and presented three-bedroomed main accommodation, together with an intriguing and extremely contemporary annexe, constructed circa 2016, ideal for a dependent relative or visiting family etc, the planning consent allowing for 'family use'.

High quality features throughout include replacement double glazing, a comprehensive oil fired central heating system with supplementary solar panelling and independent thermostatic controls, oak doors, beautifully fitted kitchens and contemporary white sanitary ware to all four bath/shower rooms.

The annexe benefits from independent external access, together with an interconnecting internal door if required; all main rooms open onto or overlook the gardens to the golf course beyond; and in addition to an integral garage with electronic door, ample driveway parking is provided for several vehicles.

In all, a faultlessly presented home, perfectly set up for two-family living, but which could be readily adapted to one large four/five-bedroomed home if preferred.

THE LOCATION

'The Fairway' is a small, select, private close of just ten substantial and individual homes, situated near to the grounds of the Budock Vean Hotel and with just a few enjoying the direct access onto the golf course.

Picturesque Anna Maria and Port Navas creeks are just a few minutes away, as are the deeper sailing waters of the Helford River and Passage, home of The Ferryboat Inn. The internationally acclaimed National Trust gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan are just a few minutes walk away, beyond which the sought-after and extremely well served village of Mawnan Smith offers excellent day-to-day amenities including a highly regarded county primary school, thatched public house, electrical store, doctors surgery, convenience stores, cafe, restaurant, hairdressers, craft stores, church and regular bus service to the nearby port of Falmouth, just five miles distant.
