Ideal for those prospective purchasers seeking a refurbishment project, occupying a superb position directly behind Swanpool Beach and car park, and set within large gardens, a well proportioned detached 1960's bungalow, currently providing 2 double bedroomed, 2 reception roomed accommodation, large conservatory and accessible loft area with dormer, with, to the front, views towards the sea - available with immediate vacant possession and no onward chain.


Built in the 1960's, 'Morva Lyn' is a well proportioned detached dormer-style property, set within particularly good sized gardens, approximately 100 metres from sandy Swanpool Beach and the picturesque South West Coast Path.

Set back and elevated from the lane which runs around the Swanpool Nature Reserve, 'Morva Lyn' provides well proportioned two double bedroomed, two reception roomed accommodation, with large conservatory, now in need of refurbishment, but benefits from sea views and a size of plot which provides immense scope for further extension and re-development (subject to consents).

All in all, a style of property in a much favoured position which is very much in demand in the present market and, as the vendors' Sole Agents, it is without hesitation an early viewing appointment is arranged.


It should be stressed how rare it is to find such a property as 'Morva Lyn', with such a large garden, so close to the beach and sea.

Situated (behind) Swanpool Lake and Nature Reserve, one of the most important brackish lagoons in Britain, the property is approximately 100 metres from Swanpool Beach, whose safe bathing waters are 'framed' by picturesque coastline, along which the South West Coast Path leads to Falmouth in one direction, and Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River in the other.

Falmouth town centre, approximately one and a half miles distant, provides a full range of shopping and commercial facilities, including many restaurants, quayside bars, multi-screen cinema, ferries to Flushing and St Mawes, art centre, galleries and regular bus and rail services to the cathedral city of Truro (approximately twelve miles). Falmouth golf course is less than half a mile away; Swanpool Beach provides various water sports facilities, tennis courts are nearby at Maen Valley, numerous sports clubs exist in Falmouth, and the area is generally regarded for its temperate climate and sub-tropical gardens.
