Set within the lightly wooded, private grounds, Kernick Park comprises just thirteen individual properties which enjoy a high degree of privacy and security, yet remain on the outskirts of this booming university town.

Of an intriguing reverse-level design, the gas centrally heated and double glazed accommodation is well proportioned throughout and, in brief, comprises: glazed entrance porch, reception hall, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, second double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, spacious double aspect first floor living room, inner lobby, kitchen, utility room and cloakroom/WC.

Small but attractively stocked front gardens provide an attractive introduction to the property with, to the rear, a 'walled' garden being a particular feature with much sun, an upper patio, and pathway to the garage, in addition to which there is additional parking, including an allocated space to the front of the house.

The residents of Kernick Park pay £40 per month per property for the maintenance of the attractive surrounding grounds, from which a gateway provides access to and around College Reservoir in one direction, and Penryn town centre in the other.

THE LOCATION

Kernick Park is situated off Kernick Road, close to the western outskirts of the town, hidden from the outside world, yet within walking distance of the university campus, secondary and junior schooling, superstore, town centre and excellent public transport facilities.
