The property This superb detached dormer bungalow has a depth of quality and appeal we seldom see. Its fastidious owners have 'fine tuned, ' both in and outside, and without expense spared, to create a very special home indeed. To live in Mawnan Smith is a treat in itself but here we have the pick of the crop position, within a much sought-after Close, and an alignment of desirable features which are likely to please the most discerning of buyers.
Built in 1970 by respected local builder and Mawnan Smith resident Mr Ben Spike, Number 15 lies within a generous plot and richly stocked garden which has been so thoughtfully landscaped and established. There is much of interest here, with a clever blending of planting and hard landscaping to create a wonderfully restful and secluded environment with aspect to enjoy summer sunshine for much of the day.

The property is 1739sq ft in size with a delightfully bright and stylish interior where presentation is immaculate and all is fine quality. There are three double bedrooms; two downstairs and the master room 'upstairs, ' enjoying spectacular rolling valley views from its large dormer window. This room has its own en suite bath and shower rooms. Living space is comfortable and sociable with the 22' lounge and the kitchen/breakfast room each accessing the conservatory, which measure a healthy 24', spanning the rear of the property and with the loveliest of views overlooking the garden and valley beyond.
The contemporary 'SieMatic' kitchen is fitted with top notch appliances, Corian worktops and Porcelanosa floor tiling. With rising fuel costs and energy in mind, Number 15 has a 4 kWh pv Solar Panel system which attracts a feed-in tariff of 21p per kWh generated and a new bp Pulse 7kW ev car charger has just been installed. The garage has remotely controlled opening and there is parking space for three cars on the driveway.

The location Castle View Park is a sought-after Close of select homes located a few minutes walk from Mawnan Smith village centre. It adjoins countryside and an unspoilt valley with lovely rolling meadow, field and wooded views enjoyed from Number 15. Mawnan is a desirable and very popular place to live, situated about 1.5 miles from the Helford River and with areas of coastline and countryside all around, to rival any found in Cornwall.
Mawnan itself has good local amenities which include a well rated primary school, beautiful Norman Church, the 17th century Red Lion pub and a general store. The village square has places to eat and a small selection of shops whilst "The Old Smithy", with resident blacksmith, shows local arts and crafts. Mawnan is home to Trebah Garden, one of the Great Gardens of Cornwall, rated among the 80 finest gardens in the world, and Glendurgan Garden, owned by the National Trust, with its intriguing cherry laurel maze. Falmouth harbour town is about 5 miles away, on a regular bus route, and provides a comprehensive range of shopping, schooling, businesses and leisure facilities.
