DESCRIPTION

Occupying an attractive rural setting, adjacent to unspoilt countryside yet within 1.5 miles of the well served village of Constantine and 5 miles from the port of Falmouth, a substantial, detached, individual house, completed circa 2014, providing light, well proportioned and extremely versatile 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom accommodation, double glazed throughout and with gas fired central heating, an adaptable lower ground floor games room, swimming pool, extensive parking, and well enclosed grounds, with pond, extending to approximately 1.5 acres.

THE PROPERTY

Constructed by the previous owner for his own occupation and completed in 2014, Pixie's Garden is a detached, individual, three-storey house, occupying an attractive rural setting, adjacent to unspoilt wooded countryside.

The property sits within grounds of approximately one and a half acres which are well enclosed to all boundaries and include a sweeping driveway with ample parking for many vehicles, sweeping lawns, spring-fed pond, and swimming pool with extensive paved surround and 'wrap-around' decking, ideal for entertaining etc.

Benefiting from double glazing, including numerous bi-folding doors, and a comprehensive Propane gas fired central heating system (the storage tank for which now needs to be reinstated), the light and extremely versatile accommodation briefly comprises an impressive 37'8 veranda-like entrance, reception lobby, cloakroom/WC, open-plan dining area and well appointed kitchen with galleried landing over, triple aspect lounge and, also to the ground floor, an inner hall, two double bedrooms and a family bath/shower room.

Upstairs, the large galleried landing leads to two 'master' bedroom suites, both of which have a study/dressing area and private en-suite shower rooms. To the lower ground floor, there is a large games room - 7.32m(24'0 ) x 23.5m(23'5 ) which, subject to planning, would be ideal as a flat for letting purposes or a dependent relative etc.

The current owners purchased the property in early 2017 with a view to redeveloping the site and in fact Conditional Planning Permission was granted on 27 April 2017 for 'the erection of a replacement dwelling, garage and swimming pool', Cornwall Council Planning Reference: PA17/01597. However, it is our opinion prospective purchasers will find the existing dwelling more than adequate, being a relatively modern home occupying a delightful yet convenient setting, with the advantage of immediate vacant possession with no onward chain.

THE LOCATION

Pixie's Garden enjoys far-reaching rural views and is bordered to three sides by unspoilt countryside, approximately one and a half miles from the well served village of Constantine, and five miles from the port of Falmouth.

Constantine village amenities include two convenience stores, a highly regarded county primary school, doctors surgery, active community hall - The Tolmen Centre', church, public house, sports/social club, hairdressers, and regular bus service, which passes through High Cross, to the port of Falmouth.

There are many beautiful rural walks within the area and within a few minutes' drive are the picturesque tree-lined day-sailing waters of the Helford River, which are readily accessed from Helford Passage, Port Navas and Gweek, where a boatyard provides repair and laying-up facilities.
