DESCRIPTION

Conveniently positioned on the northern side of this well served village, with both Restronguet (home to the famous Pandora Inn) and Mylor creeks within a 10/15 minute walk, a modern, economic detached house with attractively presented accommodation, ready for immediate occupation, as well as enclosed south-facing gardens and gated driveway parking.

THE PROPERTY

As either a low maintenance home or 'bolt hole', 'Tulip Tree House' provides light, well proportioned and extremely appealing accommodation behind double glazed windows overlooking the enclosed sunny garden to the front. Having been well cared for since construction, the house benefits from high levels of insulation and, consequently, low running costs, together with all the usual benefits of a modern home.

The well designed layout means all main rooms of the house overlook the gardens and briefly comprise a full depth 'central' hallway with front and rear access, cloakroom/WC, sitting room with open fire and double doors to the conservatory/ garden room, double aspect kitchen/diner, two large double bedrooms, bathroom with 'en-suite' door arrangement.

The gardens are relatively low maintenance, are a real feature and, we understand, catch sun throughout the day, with a broad patio area adjacent to the house, lawned areas with beautifully stocked beds, divided by a central pathway connecting the driveway parking to the property, of which provides approximately three/four vehicle parking via a broad timber gate from Passage Hill.

THE LOCATION

Positioned on the northern side of Mylor Bridge, close to Restronguet Passage, the cottage occupies a reasonably elevated position, with all main rooms facing south, overlooking the front gardens and beyond the village to surrounding countryside.

Mylor Bridge is one of the most sought-after villages anywhere in mid/south Cornwall, by virtue of its proximity to Truro and Falmouth and exceptional amenities which include a church, public house, village stores, butchers, fishmongers, sub-post office, highly regarded primary school, newsagents, hairdressers, dentist, 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, is the county's commercial, administrative, health and educational centre with ever-expanding city centre, The Hall For Cornwall, cinema and main-line rail link to London (Paddington), journey time approximately four and a half hours.

Beautiful walks from the house 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 very 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.
