A simply outstanding detached house of remarkable quality and design, situated in a quiet yet highly central position right in the heart of Mawnan Smith, close to the Helford River and beautiful coast path to Falmouth. Having been carefully remodelled and extended by its current owners, with attention to quality and function, providing modern living spaces incorporating the outside/inside through the bi-folding doors. Featuring wonderfully light, modern and unique 4/5 bedroom, 3-bath/shower room accommodation, beautifully connected to the level and immaculately kept gardens, integral garaging and impressive driveway parking, we would encourage all prospective purchasers to arrange a viewing without delay.


Following the comprehensive remodel and refit of this detached property by the current owners, which included various extensions and a full internal refit and redesign of the rooms, this stunning contemporary property now features beautifully flowing ground floor living with all main living areas accessing a superb south-facing granite patio via bi-folding double glazed doors. An additional sitting room features a tall wood-burner for the winter months, family sized kitchen/dining room, utility room, study/fifth bedroom. At first floor level, lavishly appointed bath/shower rooms serve the four double bedrooms which include two en-suites serving the master and guest bedroom.


One of only a few individual detached properties which stand right in the heart of this desirable village, yet within a quiet lane. Mawnan Smith enjoys a beautiful woodland walk through Carwinion Gardens connecting the northern shoreline of the beautiful Helford River. Nearby Church Road leads to Mawnan Old Church, beyond which the South West Coast Path provides some of the most breath-taking scenery anywhere in the west country. The excellent village amenities, all of which are just a few minutes walk of the property, include a doctors surgery, village stores, public house, restaurants, hairdressers, craft shop, electrical stores, active village hall and regular bus service to the port of Falmouth, approximately six miles distant.
