DESCRIPTION

Occupying a peaceful, semi-rural position within a short terrace of cottages, a converted and extended former school house for the Enys Estate, now a highly spacious property - not all apparent from the exterior (viewing is highly recommended), providing light and extremely well presented 3/4-bedroomed accommodation, with a superb main living area with wood-burner, various garden areas and parking nearby.

THE PROPERTY

Within a short terrace of individual properties, a most deceptively spacious cottage/house, vastly improved by the current owners including a new natural slate roof, installation of a wood-burner, re-building of the fireplace in the large living/dining room, and a full refurbishment (including re-wiring) of the first floor to provide a large walk-in dressing room, or potential fourth bedroom. The ground floor also boasts a modern kitchen, (additional) shower room and access to various garden areas to the front and rear. A parking area for residents is located near to the rear door.

THE LOCATION

Surrounded by unspoilt countryside and beautiful wildlife, yet in a convenient and highly desirable semi-rural location in between Penryn and Mylor, formerly part of the Enys Estate, with beautiful Enys Gardens close by. Consequently, the towns of Truro and Falmouth are both within a seven mile radius, and the nearby village of Mylor Bridge (approximately two miles distance) is within a five minute' drive, where excellent local amenities include a highly regarded public house, 'The Lemon Arms', general stores, community centre, butchers, post office, fishmongers, doctors surgery, dentist, hairdressers, newsagents, chapel and primary school.
