Property description

Offers invited - guide price £550,000-£600,000
On the instructions of the co-executors: A superbly positioned, detached, individual, pre-war bungalow, set within exceptionally sunny, sheltered and private gardens, exquisitely stocked with an abundance of specimen trees and shrubs, on this highly sought-after road of substantial, individual properties, a few minutes' walk from one of south Cornwall's most highly regarded and best served creekside villages.

The Property

Set back from this quiet, no-through road which runs along the southern side of Mylor Creek, leading to Mylor Harbour, Cornwall's pre-eminent boating location, 'Penrose' provides an exceptional opportunity to acquire and update a detached, individual property in one of the area's most highly sought-after locations.

Set within its own surrounding, highly private and superbly stocked gardens of approaching half an acre, with many maples, acers, azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias etc, the property provides well maintained and adaptable accommodation which prospective purchasers may wish to update, reconfigure and even extend, subject to consents.

Facing south and with the benefit of replacement double glazing and comprehensive oil fired central heating, the existing accommodation briefly comprises an enclosed sheltered entrance porch, reception hall, double aspect lounge with bay window, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, side porch, three bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, and family bathroom/WC with four-piece suite. All rooms enjoy an attractive outlook over the colourful gardens with the view from the rear elevation being particularly attractive, taking in the rear gardens to the creek and open countryside beyond.

A gated entrance opens onto a deep driveway which extends to the side and rear of the property, providing ample turning and parking space, in addition to a covered car port. The beautiful front gardens include a former water feature, with the gardens to the rear laid to gently sloping lawn and with a large workshop (needing repair), two greenhouses and a former highly productive kitchen garden area.

The Location

'Penrose' is located less than half a mile from the centre of Mylor Bridge, whose excellent day-to-day amenities include a butchers, post office, fishmongers, doctors surgery, general stores, public house, dentist, hairdressers, church, chapel and highly regarded county primary school. A regular bus service leads to the port of Falmouth, approximately four miles distant, and the cathedral city of Truro, nine miles, the county's retailing, commercial, health, legal and educational centre, with main-line rail link to London (Paddington).

A picturesque walk along Church Road leads to Mylor Yacht Harbour where there are excellent mooring, pontoon, laying-up and repair facilities, in addition to a restaurant, cafe and sailing club. Beyond, the South West Coast Path continues along the banks of the Fal Estuary to Flushing and, along the northern bank of Mylor Creek, another beautiful circular walk leads to Greatwood and Restronguet Passage, location of the award-winning Pandora Inn.

In all, a superb plot, position and opportunity which really must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
