GREAT VALUE HOUSE CLOSE TO HELFORD PASSAGE! 3 EN-SUITE BEDROOMS (OR SEPARATE ANNEXE) - A beautifully re-appointed, a highly individual and versatile property, providing a separate 'cottage' if required, in addition to the main house which benefits from light and well proportioned accommodation, with 2 en-suite bedrooms, all with the added attraction of level, mature and well stocked front and rear gardens, driveway parking and a double garage with over-head storage.


Separate entrances and individual porches provide access to both sides of the house, clearly and sensibly dividing the main house from the 'annexe/cottage', yet the overall accommodation could still be incorporated into one house via an interconnecting door, for those prospective purchasers requiring a larger three-bedroomed, three-bathroomed house with various living areas and highly private guest bedroom with its own staircase.

Set back from the roadside behind granite retaining walls with flowering shrub borders, the front gardens of this property provide an attractive outlook from the front elevation and a good degree of privacy from the roadside. A forecourt provides off-road parking for three vehicles, in addition to which there is a detached double garage with steeply pitched roof and vast over-head storage. The rear gardens are level, secure and have been attractively landscaped and benefit from a mainly westerly aspect, perfect for afternoon or evening sun.

The main property, which, together with the 'cottage/annexe', features double glazing and replacement oil fired Worcester boiler for the central heating and hot water. The flowing layout is arranged with a porch leading to an L-shaped double aspect lounge/diner with 'French doors' to the garden, a stunning and modern kitchen/breakfast room with generous utility room behind and connecting door to the cottage, two beautifully presented double bedrooms with wardrobe space and modern en-suites, both enjoy elevated countryside views.

Within the cottage/annexe, a private porch leads to a bright double aspect living room leading to a re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room behind, with access to the garden as well as a staircase to the first floor bedroom and en-suite.


The property is located within a few moments' walk of the centre of Mawnan Smith, one of the most sought-after villages anywhere in south Cornwall by virtue of its beautiful surrounding countryside, convenience for the exceptional day-sailing waters of the Helford River and proximity to beaches, coastal footpaths and port of Falmouth. Within the village there is a highly regarded county primary school, no more than 200 yards or so from the property, church, village stores/sub post office, cafe, garage, hairdressers, restaurant and highly regarded thatched public house, the Red Lion.

A regular bus service leads to the nearby port of Falmouth, approximately six miles distant, with the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, educational and health centre, an approximate twenty five minute drive away.
