DESCRIPTION

Within this increasingly sought-after and extremely well served creekside village, close to Restronguet Passage and the exceptional day-sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, an impressively presented detached 3-bedroomed cottage, offering charming, characterful and tastefully modernised accommodation, with 2 reception rooms, 2 bath/shower rooms, conservatory, large detached garage/workshop, driveway parking and beautifully stocked, sunny, south-facing gardens.

THE PROPERTY

'Saffron Cottage' is an immaculately presented cottage, offering charming and characterful three-bedroomed, two bath/shower roomed accommodation, in this much sought-after location, almost mid-way between Falmouth and Truro and perfectly positioned for the surrounding tree-lined creeks of the Fal Estuary and superb local amenities within the village.

The property retains many original features including large stone fireplaces in both reception rooms, beamed ceilings, deep sills and stone walls, whilst benefiting from various modern upgrades in recent years including a superb Range boiler/cooker providing heating, water and cooking facilities, sympathetic double glazing, replacement slate and oak flooring within the reception rooms, installation of a contemporary en-suite shower room, modern fitted kitchen with oak worktops and many more improvements.

Located towards the northern outskirts of Mylor Bridge, close to Restronguet Passage, the cottage occupies a well enclosed plot with a sunny south-facing garden and patio. The beautifully presented accommodation includes a practical entrance porch, cloakroom/WC, characterful triple aspect sitting room with wood-burning stove, connecting door to a modern conservatory overlooking the south-facing gardens, separate dining room with AGA-style Range (providing heating, water and cooking) and stunning refitted kitchen with wooden worksurfaces and space for 'Stoves' oven/hob. A timber staircase leads from the dining room to the first floor landing, off which can be found the three bedrooms, (including an en-suite shower room) and the tasteful modern family bathroom.

The gardens to the front of the cottage are well enclosed and comprise a lawned area with patio, to the front of which there is a particularly good sized garage/workshop with gravelled parking to the front, providing additional off-road parking for three cars.

THE LOCATION

Mylor Bridge is one of the most sought-after villages anywhere in mid/south Cornwall, by virtue of its proximity to Truro, Falmouth and exceptional amenities which include a church, public house, village stores, butchers, sub-post office, highly regarded primary school, newsagents, hairdressers, dentists, doctors surgery and frequent bus service.

The port of Falmouth, approximately five miles distant, offers a fine range of shopping and leisure amenities including art centre, sub-tropical gardens, National Maritime Museum, various restaurants and safe sandy bathing beaches. The cathedral city of Truro, approximately seven miles distant, is the county's commercial, administrative, health and educational centre, the Hall for Cornwall, cinema and main-line rail link to London (Paddington).

Beautiful walks from 'Saffron Cottage' lead 'over the hill' to Restronguet Passage, home of the picturesque thatched 'Pandora Inn', along the banks of the Fal Estuary to Restronguet Weir, and along nearby Mylor Creek and, beyond, to Mylor Harbour, the county's pre-eminent boating location.

With the continued high demand for all properties on this highly sought-after peninsula, we strongly recommend all interested prospective purchasers arrange an early and immediate viewing appointment.
