A detached pre-war house, in our client's ownership for some 40 years, situated on the outskirts of the village of Mabe Burnthouse, overlooking neighbouring countryside from the front elevation, providing versatile 3/4-bedroomed accommodation, benefiting from replacement uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating, a large brick pavia forecourt sufficient for several vehicles, an attached tandem garage with an inspection pit, workshop, and level, well enclosed and attractively landscaped rear gardens with greenhouse and two stores.


Constructed, we understand, during the 1930's 'Tanakhow' is a detached house which has been meticulously maintained by our clients who have owned the property for some forty years, now offering great scope to modernise into an individual family home within walking distance of the schools, village amenities and university campus.

Set back on Treliever Road, the property benefits from an extensive brick pavia forecourt which provides off-road parking for several vehicles and over which views are enjoyed to neighbouring farmland, particularly from the first floor. In addition to the forecourt parking, there is a superb, two-car deep 'tandem' garage, with electronic roller door and inspection pit, with good-sized workshop to the rear.

The versatile accommodation benefits from replacement uPVC double glazing and comprehensive gas fired central heating with the rooms briefly comprising: a large entrance porch, reception hall, lounge, sitting room, dining room, rear porch, two kitchens, ground floor bathroom, separate WC and, to the first floor, three bedrooms, two of which feature extensive storage and vanity units with hand basins etc.

To the rear, the gardens are well enclosed to all sides by block walling and timber fencing; are completely level, attractively landscaped and provide direct access to both the garage and workshop, as well as to an aluminium framed greenhouse and two timber stores, both with power connected.

In all, a lovely family or retirement home, with excellent parking, garage and workshop facilities, for sale for the first time in approximately forty years, with the additional benefit of immediate vacant possession from June/July 2017, with no onward chain.


'Tanakhow' is located on the edge of the village of Mabe whose day-to-day amenities are just a few minutes' walk away and include a convenience store, village hall, hairdressers, public house and county primary school. The expanding university campus at Tremough is also within easy reach, there is a regular bus service in the village leading to the Asda superstore at Penryn, as well as to Penryn town centre and port of Falmouth, approximately three miles distant.
