DESCRIPTION

This semi-detached bungalow, which would benefit from some refurbishment and updating, occupies a level plot in a popular cul-de-sac on the edge of the bustling market town of Penryn and, with its elevated position, enjoys an open aspect towards the town centre to the rear. Deep driveway parking leads to a garage and the bungalow benefits from generous front and rear gardens.

THE PROPERTY

The two bedroom accommodation, which some prospective purchasers may wish to modernise and/or extend, comprises: living room with open fireplace, light kitchen/breakfast room, two double bedrooms with open views, bathroom with white suite and a lean-to store/utility to the side. Other similar properties nearby have excavated the front garden to provide additional parking, although the existing driveway provides off-street parking for two/three vehicles and vehicular access to the garage. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, bordered with a variety of shrubs and plants and is particularly sunny with its elevated south-easterly aspect.

THE LOCATION

Bodinar Road is a popular cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Penryn, close to the railway station, schools and the university campus at Tremough. Regular bus and train services provide direct and easy access into both nearby Falmouth and the cathedral city of Truro.
