Constructed in 2012, a substantial detached and extremely versatile 4/5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3-storey residence with large double garaging in addition to parking, separate study, 2nd sitting room and utility room; located on the northern outskirts of this particularly well served and highly sought-after village, near the beautiful Helford River and stunning south Cornish coastline.


Elgin Close is a recently constructed select cul-de-sac, located within a few moments' walk of the centre of Mawnan Smith, one of the most sought-after villages anywhere in south Cornwall, by virtue of its beautiful surrounding countryside, convenience for the exceptional day-sailing waters of the Helford River and proximity to beaches, coastal footpaths and port of Falmouth. Within the village, there is a highly regarded county primary school, doctors surgery, church, village stores/sub-post office, cafe/delicatessen, garage, hairdressers, restaurant and thatched public house, The Red Lion.

A regular bus service leads to the nearby port of Falmouth, approximately six miles distant, with the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, educational and health centre, an approximate twenty five minute drive away.


Completed in 2012 by our client, with particularly high specification fittings, such as granite worksurfaces within the kitchen, attractively appointed and contemporary bath/shower rooms, glass and stainless steel balustrade to the bedroom balcony, highly efficient air source heating system, stone rendered and clad elevations for ease of maintenance, and attractive bay windows in many of the rooms. Bath and shower room facilities are in abundance and include two large en-suite bedrooms and a separate family bathroom and separate shower room at first and second floor levels.

The versatility of the accommodation is particularly apparent and our floor plan emphasises the versatility of the first floor, where additional sitting/study/TV rooms can be located, if required. Equally, if more bedrooms are bedrooms are required for larger families, the property can accommodate up to six double bedrooms. Totalling a huge 2,800 ft sq of accommodation which, unlike many properties of a similar size, requires little external maintenance and particularly economic running costs. Those requiring excellent garage/workshop space will not be disappointed, as the large double garage has convenient internal access form the kitchen/dining room and separate electronic roller doors provide vehicular access for each separate vehicle. The rear gardens are equally appealing, with broad, low maintenance patio areas, and an area of lawn, which could be extended for those keeping pets or families with children.

In all, a large and versatile detached house, in a superb village location with a full package of accommodation, garaging, parking and gardens, all a few minutes' drive from the Helford River and ten/fifteen minutes from Falmouth.
