This substantial, individual four bedroom detached chalet style residence is set in a prime location on the outskirts of this favoured village of Mawnan Smith, close to the beautiful Helford River Estuary, Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, the local village school and all the services the village has to offer.

The house was believed to have been built in the late 1950's and has been a good home for our client over the past 25 years or so and is now giving new owners the opportunity to live in this superb location.

Opportunities to own a home like this which offers so much potential are becoming increasingly rare within this immediate area. The house is clean but old fashioned and offers new owners the chance to create 'forever' home where they can customise and extend (subject to the normal required permissions) to match the house to their own taste and requirements.

Current features include electric central heating by radiators (wet system) and a new boiler which was fitted in December 2020, wood grain oak finish and some white UPVC double glazed windows and doors, and old fashioned oil fired Aga range (for cooking and hot water), focal point fireplace with wood burning stove and oak stripped flooring in the sitting room which continues through the reception hall.

The main house has spacious accommodation which includes in sequence, a reception hall, sitting room with a dual aspect overlooking the front and rear gardens, a snug with patio doors which lead into the rear garden and a dining room which is open plan to the kitchen. The first floor has four bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom/wc combined. To the right of the house and linked by an enclosed passageway sits a newly created self contained studio annexe with its own kitchenette and shower room/wc which could prove useful for a dependant relative, an independent teenager or a work from home space.

Approached over a gently rising gravelled driveway from the lane into a generous parking and turning area which bisects delightful mature gardens which sit at the front of the property. Delightful large gardens sit to the rear of the property and offer an extensive coloured stone patio area, extensive lawns interspersed with a wide variety of mature plants and shrubs, soft fruit area and backing onto open land. These gardens are a great area to relax and entertain your friends and family and free range children.

The village offers a range of everyday facilities including a convenience store, doctors surgery, The Red Lion thatched public house, hairdressers, a craft shop, bowling club, golf club and a regular bus service which links to Falmouth and the surrounding area.

As our clients sole agents, we strongly recommend an immediate viewing to secure this fine property.

OUTSIDE

The house is approached over a gently rising gravelled driveway which opens into a wide parking and turning area and this bisects two areas of gardens mainly laid to lawn and well stocked with a wide variety of plants, shrubs and trees including Camellia, Holly and Azaleas At the front of the house there is a crazy paved sun terrace with stone retaining walls and this provides a great to sit and enjoy the morning sunshine through to lunchtime. This garden is well screened from the lane at the front. In our opinion this will be an ideal place to erect a double garage (subject to the required planning permission and building regulation approval. To the rear of the house sits a large well planned garden of generous proportions offering a wide stone paved patio which is a great place to relax and entertain your family and friends. From here a level lawn passes well stocked flowerbeds which include a variety of hedging which includes a Common Box Wood, Maidenhair Vine, Leather Leaf Mahonia and English Ivy. This continues to the far side of the garden. At the far end of the garden with a timber garden shed in situ. Further mature shrubs including Japanese Laurel and American Holly screen the garden and as you turn down the return boundary, you will see a timber and caged soft fruit area and a greenhouse which is also included in the sale. A raised oil tank is located just before the return pathway alongside the house and this provides fuel for the Aga range. Someone with green fingers can easily return this fabulous garden to its former glory. This garden enjoys a sunny westerly aspect which means you can enjoy sunshine here for the best parts of the day until sunset.
