To be sold for the first time in approximately 22 years, and only for the second time since construction 30 years ago, a detached, individual and extremely high quality home, attractively presented and meticulously maintained throughout, providing well proportioned and extremely versatile 3/4 bedroom, 3 bath/shower room accommodation, set in beautifully stocked and landscaped gardens, backing onto unspoilt farmland, with gated entrance, ample driveway parking and detached double garaging, all within just a few minutes' drive of Mawnan Smith, the Helford River and port of Falmouth.


Constructed, we understand, approximately thirty years ago by the previous and original owner for his own occupation, 'Tresooth Bungalow' is now to be sold for only the second time since construction, our clients having resided in the property for the last twenty two years.

Built on the site of an older property, in this attractive semi-rural setting, backing onto and overlooking open farmland, the property has attractive part stone-clad elevations under a pitched slate-effect roof which, with the beautiful and fully surrounding gardens, has created a highly individual home of great distinction and obvious quality.

Enjoying a broad frontage to Penwarne Road with full length granite walling, electronic gates open onto an extensive brick pavia forecourt which, in addition to a detached block-built double garage, provides ample parking for numerous visitors and many vehicles. Level pathways lead to the front and rear of the property, with the surrounding gardens and pathways being almost completely level.

The double glazed accommodation benefits from oil fired central heating, supplemented by solar panelling, with the well proportioned accommodation briefly comprising a sheltered entrance porch, impressive galleried reception hall, double aspect lounge with open fireplace, study area, magnificent triple aspect dining room (added by our clients approximately nine years ago), well appointed kitchen, supplementary utility room, ground floor master bedroom suite, family bathroom/WC and former fourth bedroom, now a sitting room, off which is a large conservatory. Upstairs, the galleried landing provides access to two further bedrooms and a first floor shower room/WC, with all upstairs rooms enjoying attractive views over the neighbouring and surrounding and unspoilt farmland.

The surrounding gardens are a particular feature, having been beautifully stocked and tended by the present owners, to comprise large lawned areas bordered by dense ever-green shrubberies, which provide both a high degree of privacy and shelter, together with an attractive outlook from every room. A kitchen garden area is ideal for those seeking a degree of self-sufficiency with summerhouse, greenhouse, raised beds and composting areas.


'Tresooth Bungalow' is situated less than two miles from the centre of Mawnan Smith, one of Cornwall's most sought-after villages, which offers an excellent range of day-to-day amenities, including a thatched public house, The Red Lion Inn, doctors' surgery, convenience store, garage, electrical store, hairdressers, church, restaurant, craft shops, sports clubs and highly regarded county primary school.

Along neighbouring 'No Mans Land Road' is Penjerrick Garden and just beyond Mawnan Smith are Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, whose sub-tropical plants and pathways leading down to the beautiful Helford River are many peoples clearest memory of this beautiful and unspoilt area.

Many beautiful rural, woodland, coastal and riverside walks abound in the area, including around nearby Argal Lake, with all necessary retail, commercial, educational, administrative and health facilities readily accessible in nearby Falmouth, less than four miles distant, and the cathedral city of Truro, just over ten miles away.

'Tresooth Bungalow' is, undoubtedly, a home which will appeal to both retirement and family purchasers alike and we, the vendors' Sole Agent, have no hesitation recommending interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment to fully appreciate all the features this highly desirable property has to offer.
