Occupying a superb 'corner' plot, in this quiet, select, no-through road, just a few minutes' walk from the centre of this extremely well served village, close to the south Cornish coast and picturesque Helford River, providing well appointed and extremely well presented 3 bedroom, 2 bath/shower room accommodation, with good sized, sunny, level and well enclosed gardens, garage and additional off-road parking.


Constructed, we understand, circa 1970, 20 Shute Hill occupies a particularly good position in this extremely popular cul-de-sac, close to the outskirts of the village, yet still within just a few minutes' walk of excellent day-to-day amenities.

Benefiting from replacement uPVC double glazing and comprehensive oil fired central heating, the property is well presented throughout and briefly comprises a broad and deep reception hall with downstairs cloakroom off, triple aspect living room with real-flame gas fire and doors onto the gardens, a separate dining room, refitted kitchen, useful utility room and, to the first floor, a large master bedroom with private bathroom, two further bedrooms, and family shower room/WC, which has also been refitted with a contemporary white suite.

The gardens are a particular feature of the property, being open-plan to the front where there is ready access from the driveway which leads to the garage with up-and-over door and light and power connected. The side and rear gardens are larger than expected and include lawned areas, paved terraces, well stocked shrub borders, fruit trees, a greenhouse, and recently constructed timber store.

In all, a fine family or retirement home, ready to move straight into, in one of south Cornwall's most sought-after villages.


The village of Mawnan Smith has always been recognised as one of the most attractive communities within which to live, along the south coast of Cornwall, by virtue of its proximity to the south Cornish coastline, beautiful Helford River and port of Falmouth.

Amenities within the village, all of which are just a few minutes' walk away, include as highly regarded county primary school, thatched public house, electrical shop, doctors surgery, cafe, post office and general stores, craft shops, restaurant, hairdressers, church and bowling club. Local landmarks include Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, and The Ferryboat Inn at nearby Helford Passage, with the port of Falmouth and cathedral city of Truro just six and thirteen miles distant respectively.
