Roscarrick Villas dates back to the late 1800's and were originally built as a short terrace of three houses located just off Carwinion Road. Two of the cottages have since been converted and this particular apartment occupies the ground floor of the middle of the terrace.

The apartment has recently undergone a thorough and comprehensive scheme of refurbishment works and is now presented to a very high standard, blending a highly appealing combination of contemporary design and character. A detached studio/garden room has been built at the end of the private garden to provide highly versatile home office, studio or hobby space as required. The apartment also benefits from having its own single garage located immediately opposite.

The accommodation comprises: striking contemporary kitchen/dining room with doors to the second bedroom and living room, spacious living room with extensive fitted cupboards, a walk-in bay providing access to the garden and a wood-burning stove, well proportioned double bedroom with a wide bay window and feature fireplace with free-standing wood-burner, second bedroom, contemporary bathroom, separate walk-in cupboard/utility room.

In short, a highly appealing garden apartment refurbished to an exacting standard just a short walk from the village shops.


Roscarrick Villas is situated opposite the charming St Michaels Church, literally moments walk from the centre of Mawnan Smith and within a short drive of nearby beaches, coastal and country walks. Within Mawnan Smith, facilities include a renowned thatched public house, The Red Lion, junior school, general stores/sub-post office, cafe, hairdressers and a regular bus service to Falmouth, approximately five miles distant. The beautiful gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan, as well as the picturesque creekside hamlet of Helford Passage, are all very nearby; three beaches are also within an approximate fifteen minute walk.
