Standing within a generous, beautiful, quiet and elevated plot at the end of a short terrace with superb wrap-around gardens to the front, side and rear, an immensely appealing 3 double bedroomed house with extended, light, spacious and stylish accommodation throughout, with the added attraction of far-reaching views, garage and parking.


Positioned in a little-known terrace of just five properties within the grounds of a former flower farm, 5 Trenoweth Vean stands on the inner side, away from the road, and is mainly surrounded by its own gardens and unspoilt countryside beyond. Being approximately 600' above sea level, its elevation boasts superb far-reaching views to the south and east in the direction of Falmouth Harbour, Bay and even beyond The Roseland Peninsula to the open sea.

Having been subject to a variety of improvements by the current owners over approximately twenty years, the accommodation, now extended, provides spacious, modern and stylish living, with almost all rooms overlooking its own gardens with sunlight flowing into the majority of rooms during the day. A large 27' deep living room, with wood-burner, is complemented by a stunning 23' deep kitchen/dining room adjacent. Heated by an external oil fired boiler, the house also benefits from uPVC double glazing throughout, including large double doors from the living room accessing the patio with afternoon sun and the quite stunning wrap-around gardens which are generous throughout and particularly family/pet friendly.

The first floor boasts three double bedrooms, two of which enjoy even more elevated views, a large modernised bathroom and deep walk-in cupboard with potential as an en-suite shower room to the main bedroom.


5 Trenoweth Vean is an exceptionally sited end of terrace house with excellent further potential to extend, if required, commanding elevated views, amidst lovely semi-rural gardens and unspoilt countryside surroundings, yet most conveniently located for this highly regarded area's excellent range of amenities.

Trenoweth Vean is a small terrace of just five houses, on the outskirts of the village of Mabe Burnthouse, close to Argal and College Reservoirs (around which there are attractive circular walks) and the North Helford Area, where the villages of Mawnan Smith, Port Navas and Constantine lead to the tree-lined creeks and sailing waters of the Helford River, less than ten minutes' drive away. The university campus at Tremough is, amazingly, within just a twenty minute walk away.

The village of Mabe Burnthouse has everyday amenities, including a public house, village stores, hairdressers and regular bus service to the nearby towns of Penryn and Falmouth. There is a junior school in Mabe, with secondary schools available in Penryn, Falmouth, Helston and Truro, where private educational facilities exist.

Falmouth's bustling harbourside, excellent leisure amenities, water sports clubs, safe sandy beaches and fine range of restaurants are within a few minutes' drive; there is a branch-line rail link from both Falmouth and Penryn to Truro, which is on the main Penzance to Paddington (London) line. Excellent golf facilities are nearby at Falmouth, Budock Vean, Mullion, Killiow and Truro, the county's legal, administrative and retailing centre - approximately nine miles distant.
