OVER 50 VIEWINGS AND 5 OFFERS IN 9 DAYS OF MARKETING - NOW SALE AGREED - SIMILAR PROPERTIES URGENTLY REQUIRED FOR PROCEEDABLE, DISAPPOINTED, PROSPECTIVE PURCHASERS!!! OFFERS INVITED - GUIDE PRICE £500,000-£550,000 On the instructions of the co-executors: an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a property ripe for conversion, on the highly sought-after Mylor Peninsula, close to the well served village and sailing waters, a detached house, believed to have been part of the Carclew Estate, set within well stocked and level grounds of approximately 2/3 of an acre, bordering unspoilt farmland, and including a useful additional area of woodland.


'Little Tregunwith' is a charming, detached, individual house which, we understand, was formerly part of the nearby Carclew Estate, three quarters of a mile from the centre of the well served village of Mylor Bridge, and close to the beautiful day-sailing waters of nearby Restronguet and Mylor Creeks which open onto the Fal Estuary.

In our clients' family's ownership since 1964, the availability of 'Little Tregunwith' provides an increasingly rare opportunity to refurbish and, if required, extend (subject to consents), a property in this highly sought-after location. Set well back from the roadside, a long driveway leads to the front and sides of the property, where there is ample parking, a garage and two useful block-built outbuildings. The current accommodation is in need of general refurbishment, but does benefit from some replacement uPVC double glazing as well as oil fired central heating.

A recently constructed double glazed entrance porch leads into an entrance hall, off which the rooms include: a large L-shaped living room with lounge and sitting areas, side porch/conservatory, through dining room, kitchen, inner lobby, utility room, rear porch and ground floor cloaks/shower room. To the first floor, a split level landing leads to four bedrooms, all of which enjoy a lovely outlook over the surrounding gardens and adjacent farmland, and a two-storey rear extension includes a large bathroom with separate WC.

The gardens, which mainly lie to the front of the house, are a particular feature of the property and comprise sweeping lawns and many mature shrubs and fruit trees etc. An ancient well is situated in the north western corner, and the garden area to the eastern side of the approach driveway has previously been an extensive and productive kitchen garden. In addition, opposite the entrance driveway there is an additional area of land, included in the sale, previously used as a pittosporum plantation and ideal for a variety of horticultural uses.

In all, an ideal refurbishment project, in one of the county's most sought-after locations.


'Little Tregunwith' occupies a prominent but discreet position, surrounded by unspoilt countryside, within approximately three quarters of a mile of the centre of the extremely well served creekside village of Mylor Bridge. Often quoted as one of the nicest village communities in which to live anywhere along the south coast of Cornwall. The excellent facilities include a church, highly regarded county primary school, hairdressers, doctors surgery, dentist, newsagents, public house, general stores, butchers, fishmongers and active village hall. In addition, there are numerous sports and social clubs, country and creekside walks, including to the nearby Pandora Inn, and regular bus services to the port of Falmouth and cathedral city of Truro, approximately five and eight miles distant respectively.
