DESCRIPTION

Occupying a delightful rural setting, less than 1.5 miles from the well served village of Constantine, 3.5 miles from Gweek and the beautiful sailing waters of the Helford Estuary, and 4 miles from the booming port of Falmouth, a highly individual, detached country home, built and completed in 2010, providing intriguing and extremely well proportioned 3 bedroom, 2 bath/shower room accommodation, set within private surrounding gardens and grounds of approximately 2.8 acres with range of useful timber outbuildings, static caravan/cabin, and poly tunnels - perfect for the keen horticulturist.

THE PROPERTY

Built and completed for the current owner in 2010 to an intriguing traditional barn-style oak-framed design, with natural slate roofing and larch clad elevations, 'Fir Tree Farm' previously traded as a small, select nursery, whose grounds have been attractively landscaped and planted, to provide a wonderful family home, eminently extendable (subject to consents), or for a keen horticulturist to return to a nursery.

Enjoying a broad frontage to the quiet roadside, a private entrance opens onto an expansive, level parking area, sufficient for many vehicles and for the construction of garaging/car port if required. To the western side of the entrance, there are useful timber outbuildings including a workshop and former office, together with three large poly tunnels with, at the very least, scope to create ones own private 'Eden Project'. Sweeping lawns with attractively planted shrub beds then lead to the southern boundary, with the whole site well enclosed by mature hedging, providing a high degree of privacy, shelter and security. There is a formal lawn with rockery and feature stone archway immediately to the front of the accommodation, together with a broad south-facing veranda with bi-folding doors from the living room, providing a delightful 'outside' living area. Throughout the grounds there are many numerous interesting features including a leat, man-made pond, orchard and wooded copse etc, together with many specimen plants including camellias, rhododendrons, bamboo, ferns and gunnera etc, etc.

The spacious accommodation is well appointed throughout with double glazed windows, under-floor electric heating (to the ground floor), and oak doors lead to the ground floor rooms, together with oak or slate flooring.

An entrance lobby leads directly into a most impressive 'double volume' open-plan living room with vaulted ceiling, bi-folding doors to the front, tall glazed screen to the rear, distinct kitchen, sitting and dining areas and, to either end, versatile minstrel galleries. There is a separate preparation kitchen/utility room, inner hall leading to two ground floor double bedrooms, served by a well appointed family bathroom/WC, and to the first floor, a master bedroom 'suite' including further double bedroom, galleried sitting area, dressing room and shower room/WC.

In addition, there is a static caravan/cabin to the western side of the house which has previously provided overflow accommodation and which appears ideal for use as a home office etc, subject to additional consents.

THE LOCATION

Tresahor is a small rural community, located less than one and a half miles from the centre of the well served village of Constantine, whose excellent day-to-day amenities include a highly regarded county primary school, sports clubs, doctors surgery, dentist, two convenience stores, public house, hairdressers and active community hall - The Tolmen Centre. The village of Gweek, on the banks of the beautiful sailing waters of the Helford Estuary, is three and a half miles distant, with the booming port of Falmouth just four miles distant, recently voted 'The Best Place to Live in the UK' by the readers of The Sunday Times. With the cathedral city of Truro an approximate twenty five minute drive away, 'Fir Tree Farm' is ideally placed for central Cornwall's excellent leisure, commercial, health, education and public transport facilities, and an early viewing is therefore recommended by the owner's Sole Agent.
