  • Comprehensively and most tastefully refurbished
  • Set in beautifully landscaped, surrounding gardens
  • 3 bedrooms, 2 bath/shower rooms
  • Full double glazing and oil fired central heating

  • A perfectly presented village home


A quite exceptional, detached, individual, non-estate bungalow, just a few moments walk from the excellent day-to-day amenities in this highly sought-after village, close to the Helford River, providing excellent and faultlessly presented accommodation, completely and most tastefully refurbished by the present owner, set in delightfully landscaped, surrounding, well enclosed and private gardens, with attached garage and ample additional private off-road parking.


Built in 1981 by a renowned local builder, 'Spinark', has been the subject of an exhaustive, no expense spared, total, 'top to toe' programme of refurbishment and improvement works by the present owner, who has created an exceptional, light, bright and superbly appointed home, close to the centre of this extremely sought-after and well served village.

Set within its own surrounding, well enclosed, sunny, sheltered and private gardens, the property benefits from ample parking in addition to an attached garage, locally handmade wooden double glazed windows and external doors, and a new comprehensive oil fired central heating system.

The quality and extremely tasteful fitting throughout include Ted Todd 'Southill' natural oak flooring, internal doors architraves in solid oak, and thresholds, window sills and skirting boards in solid Cornish oak, porcelain tiled flooring, fully tiled bath and separate shower room with Heritage sanitary ware, and a superb Mereway natural oak kitchen with Venetian Gold granite worktops and handmade Winchester tiles.

All rooms enjoy an attractive outlook over the surrounding gardens and to the rear, there are far-reaching views to Falmouth and Pendennis Point in the distance, with French doors from the dining room opening onto a porcelain tiled patio ideal for entertaining.

Should further accommodation be required, we understand this would be possible in the loft area, with the garage also offering potential for conversion to a home office, self contained flat, or an annex, whilst still retaining ample parking area - subject to all necessary consents.

In all, a faultless home in one of the area's most sought-after locations.


'Spinark' is located close to National Trust Carwinion Gardens, all beaches are in close proximity, together with National Trust Glendurgan, and local nursery and excellent primary school. Nearby Church Road leads to Mawnan Old Church, beyond which the South West Coast Path provides some of the most breath-taking scenery anywhere in the west country - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The excellent village amenities, all of which are just a few minutes walk of the property, include a doctors surgery, village stores, public house, restaurants, hairdressers, craft shop, electrical stores, active village hall and regular bus service to the port of Falmouth, approximately six miles distant.
