DESCRIPTION

Occupying an extremely convenient position, close to the centre of this well served and highly sought-after village, whose excellent day-to-day amenities are a short, level walk away, a detached bungalow providing tastefully presented 3 bedroom accommodation, with replacement double glazing, attached garage, driveway parking and surrounding, attractively stocked but easily maintained gardens.

THE PROPERTY

'Tamarisk' is a detached bungalow providing tastefully presented accommodation, with garage, parking and surrounding level gardens, a 'stones throw' from Mawnan Smith's excellent day-to-day amenities.

Benefiting from replacement uPVC double glazing and economic off-peak night storage heating, the light and well presented accommodation briefly comprises an entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, L-shaped double aspect lounge/diner, attractively appointed kitchen, rear conservatory, inner hall, three bedrooms, one currently used as a study, and recently refitted shower room/WC with contemporary white suite.

In addition to an attached garage with utility area and electronic up-and-over door, there is a driveway providing off-road parking together with level access to the accommodation, onto the level, lawned front gardens and, to either side of the bungalow, to rear courtyard-style gardens, again completely level, which are secure, well enclosed, attractively stocked and sunny.

In all, a bungalow which, in particular, will prove of immense appeal to retirement buyers wanting to retain their independence, but to have superb village amenities 'on the doorstep'.

THE LOCATION

Carlidnack Road is situated just off the village centre with nearby amenities including a garage, active village hall, convenience stores with sub-post office, cafe, restaurant, doctors surgery, thatched public house, electrician, hairdresser, church and craft stores. Off Grove Hill there is a highly regarded primary school and, from just outside the property, there is a regular bus service to the nearby port of Falmouth, five miles distant, just voted by the readers of The Sunday Times as the best place to live in the United Kingdom. The beautiful sub-tropical gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah are on the outskirts of the village, beyond which are the tree-lined day-sailing waters of the Helford River. There is a golf course at nearby Budock Vean, and stunning clifftop walks to Durgan and Rosemullion Head lead to the sandy bathing beach at Maenporth.
