DESCRIPTION

Within the highly regarded 'North Helford' area, a broad non-estate detached bungalow of an individual design, set back from the roadside by a generous front garden and multi-vehicle driveway parking, providing well proportioned 3 bedroom accommodation, all on one level, with a master en-suite, conservatory, sunny rear garden and adjacent garage.

THE PROPERTY

On highly convenient Penwarne Road, with easy access to Mawnan Smith, the beautiful Helford River and nearby harbourside town of Falmouth, an individual and well presented bungalow with three bedrooms, large conservatory, garage, sunny landscaped gardens and potential to purchase a further area of land to the rear (if a larger than average garden is required).

A spacious L-shaped hallway leads to the deep living/dining room with front and rear aspects; the adjacent kitchen, also well proportioned, is linked via the entrance hall; the broad conservatory to the rear, catches much sun during the day and provides extended living or dining areas. The bedroom accommodation is located on the other side of the bungalow, still accessed via the hallway and equally well proportioned with two doubles, the master benefiting from an en-suite, and a further single bedroom or study/office.

The driveway parking is comprehensive and could even be further extended into the front garden, which is beautifully mature, with a lawned area bordered by mature shrubs and hedging for added privacy. The garden to the rear, which is impressively landscaped with lawned areas interspersed with flowering plants and connecting paths, can be accessed from either side of the property, with the garage located at the head of the driveway on one side.

As mentioned, there is an area of land to the rear of the garden boundary which, we understand, is available to purchase separately from the neighbouring farmer, therefore providing an unusually large rear garden (if required).

For prospective purchasers seeking a non-estate property, within delightful gardens, close to the Helford River and south coast beaches, convenient for the nearby village amenities within Mawnan Smith and both Falmouth and Truro, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.

THE LOCATION

The property is located within a few minutes drive of the centre of Mawnan Smith, one of the most sought-after villages anywhere in south Cornwall by virtue of its beautiful surrounding countryside, convenient for the exceptional day-sailing waters of the Helford River and proximity to beaches, coastal footpaths and the port of Falmouth. Within the village there is a highly regarded county primary school, doctors surgery, church, village stores, garage, hairdressers, restaurants and highly regarded thatched public house, 'The Red Lion'. Within the parish are sports clubs for cricket, football, bowls, golf and sailing.

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.
