DESCRIPTION

A substantial 4/5 bedroom family residence, located in the extremely desirable area of Budock Water. With a gated driveway and wrap-around gardens, as well as parking for several vehicles and storage facilities for boats, 'Oakfield' is a superb example of a detached family home in this area of Falmouth, whilst being conveniently located for outlying villages such as Mawnan Smith, Constantine and Port Navas, and the sailing waters of the Helford River.

THE PROPERTY

Situated on an elevated plot shielded from the road by a mature boundary, gated access to the driveway with parking for several vehicles and wrap-around gardens to the exterior. Internally, the property benefits from double glazing and oil fired central heating. To the ground floor there is original wood flooring to a number of rooms, a comprehensively fitted kitchen with oil fired Rayburn heating the hot water and bathroom radiator, whilst having additional cooking facilities for the hotter Summer months when the Rayburn may not be necessary. There is a useful utility room and ground floor shower room. There is a formal dining room with an outlook over the front elevation and a grand living room with dual aspect windows and double doors to the rear garden as well as having a Villager stove with slate hearth and granite lintel and surround. To the first floor, there are four double bedrooms - the master benefiting from built-in wardrobes. There is also a fifth bedroom/office and family bathroom.

To the exterior of the property, there are gardens to three of the four sides of the property, enclosed by fencing with views over surrounding farmland with borders well stocked with mature shrubs and a patio area located on the south elevation whilst being bordered by raised beds. In addition to well manicured lawned gardens, there is also a vegetable garden with two raised beds and a greenhouse. There is gravelled hardstanding for additional parking or boat storage, and driveway parking for several vehicles. There is a detached garage and additional boat store.

THE LOCATION

The village of Budock Water is situated less than a mile from the outskirts of the port of Falmouth - recently voted as one of the best places anywhere to live in the UK by readers of The Sunday Times. The village has a church, public house and newsagent/general stores. St Marys and St Francis junior schools are just a few minutes drive away, as are Falmouth's secondary schools. The amenities of Falmouth town and shopping facilities are also within easy driving distance.

Regular bus services connect the village with Falmouth and Mawnan Smith, beyond which are the tree-lined sailing waters of the Helford River. Nearby beaches include Swanpool and Maenporth; there are numerous rural walks close to the heart of the village. The cathedral city of Truro is some twenty minutes drive away with private schooling and a main-line rail link to London (Paddington).
