DESCRIPTION

Occupying a delightful semi-rural position in the small hamlet of Brill, close to the extremely well-served North Helford River Area village of Constantine, an individual detached house, in our client's ownership approaching 40 years, enjoying panoramic views over miles of surrounding countryside to Falmouth Bay, providing well proportioned 3-bedroomed accommodation with double glazing, oil fired central heating, garage, driveway parking and surprisingly large rear gardens backing onto farmland.

THE PROPERTY

In our client's ownership for approaching forty years, 'Trethosa' is a detached individual house built, we understand, in the mid-1950's, occupying a slightly elevated position in this small semi-rural hamlet, with all front-facing rooms enjoying magnificent, unrestricted, panoramic views over the neighbouring cricket field, to the outskirts of Constantine, miles of surrounding countryside and Falmouth Bay in the distance.

Benefiting from oil fired central heating and replacement uPVC double glazing, the well proportioned accommodation includes: reception hall, double aspect lounge with glass-fronted multi-fuel stove, separate dining room, large kitchen/breakfast room, rear porch/conservatory and, upstairs, three bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC.

Driveway parking leads to an attached garage from which access is provided to extensive underfloor storage. Front gardens provide an attractive approach to the property with the main garden areas leading to the rear where they are much deeper than expected, well enclosed to all sides, backing onto open farmland, mainly lawned, with a paved patio, pond, fruit trees and useful block-built outbuilding.

In all, an ideal family or retirement home.

THE LOCATION

Brill is situated approximately one mile from the extremely well-served village of Constantine whose excellent day-to-day amenities a highly regarded county primary school, church, sports club, two convenience stores, public house, hairdressers, doctors surgery and active community hall - The Tolman Centre.

The Helford River village of Gweek is two miles distance where there are boat storage, repair and launching facilities; Mawnan Smith is four and a half miles distant, Penryn and Helston less than six miles, the port of Falmouth less than seven miles, and the cathedral city of Truro is thirteen and a half miles. An ideal location therefore for all amenities in this highly sought-after area of Cornwall.
