DESCRIPTION

Enjoying total peace, privacy and seclusion, yet close to the sought-after and well served village of Constantine, sailing waters of the Helford River and nearby port of Falmouth, a detached, extended former mill house providing characterful, versatile and recently substantially improved 4-bedroomed accommodation, set amidst unspoilt wooded grounds of approximately 5.5 acres, with long private driveway, detached garage/outbuilding, formal lawned gardens, and picturesque stream with deep bluebell woodland beyond.

THE PROPERTY

'Nancarris Mill' is a distinctive four-bedroomed residence in a truly magical position, nestling quite centrally within its own 'magical' grounds, with no near neighbours, yet less than one mile from the popular village of Constantine and approximately two miles from the sailing waters of the internationally-renowned Helford River.

'Hidden' from the outside world, the property was completely modernised by the present owners approximately eight years ago, with fixtures and fittings of the highest standard and the result being a home of great charm and character, appointed for 21st Century living.

The accommodation, which is light, well proportioned and benefits from oil fired central heating and hardwood framed double glazing, briefly comprises: entrance hallway with oak flooring, 30' triple aspect sitting room with wood-burning stove, comprehensively fitted kitchen/breakfast room which, also, enjoys delightful views over the garden, adaptable triple aspect second reception/dining room, utility room and ground floor cloakroom.

To the first floor, a part galleried landing leads to the master bedroom suite which incorporates a private dressing room or nursery, in addition to an extremely well appointed bath/shower room. There are three further first floor bedrooms, the second of which is triple aspect, and all of which are served by a family bathroom with white suite and further views over the picturesque grounds.

Accessed by its own, long driveway, the property's setting can rightly be described as 'magical', with the surrounding gardens and woodland providing complete peace, privacy and seclusion, as well as being a haven for wildlife, including herons and deer. To the rear of the property there is ample parking for numerous vehicles, together with a detached two-storey garage/workshop, of part stone construction, with office at first floor level, ideal for those working from home, with Super Fast Fibre broadband available, with speeds of approximately 40mb/s.

Formal gardens extend across the breadth of the front of the property, where there is a large paved sun terrace, ideal for al fresco dining etc, lawns, shrub borders and picturesque stream, to the other side of which bluebell woodland extends up the face of the valley. A setting which must be viewed to be truly appreciated.

THE LOCATION

'Nancarris Mill' is located off The Level, approximately midway between High Cross and Constantine village centre.

Constantine village, approximately one mile distant, is an active community with excellent day-to-day amenities including public house, sports clubs, convenience stores, church, doctors, dentist, highly regarded county primary school, hairdressers, active community hall - The Tolmen Centre - and regular bus service to both Falmouth and Helston.

The beautiful tree-lined sailing waters of the Helford River are accessed via nearby Port Navas, approximately one and a half miles distant, where there is a sailing club, dinghy launching facilities and moorings upon application. With the village of Mawnan Smith approximately four and a half miles distant, port of Falmouth six miles, market town of Helston seven miles and cathedral city of Truro fourteen miles, 'Nancarris Mill' is ideally positioned for all mid, south and west Cornwall's excellent amenities, coastline and countryside.
