  • Type: Detached bungalow
  • Bedrooms: 3
  • Listing status: sale
  • Country: England


A stunning, highly individual single storey residence, occupying a generous plot approaching 0.75 of an acre, believed to have been commissioned in the 1970's for the then manager of the nearby Budock Vean Hotel. The immaculately presented, light and bright accommodation has since been reconfigured and extended to provide, in brief, an entrance porch, large hallway, 3 double bedrooms (1 en-suite), an exceptional 22' open-plan kitchen/living space, separate living room, utility room, sun room/bedroom 4, cloakroom/WC, and family shower room. The extensive gardens extend to all sides of the property and are a significant feature, a substantial lawn is home to a number of beautiful trees, generous low level flower beds contain many colourful shrubs and plants, to include an attractive rose garden. The driveway provides ample parking and gives access to a 23' detached timber workshop with power, light and boarded loft space. The property is located just 1.5 miles outside the well served village of Mawnan Smith and just a short drive from the excellent sailing waters of the Helford River and sandy beach at Maenporth. The vibrant harbour town of Falmouth is less than 4 miles distant. In all, a unique high specification home, in a wonderful sylvan setting, which comes highly recommended.

The Exterior


A sweeping driveway provides access to a parking area for two/three cars and leads to the front meadow garden and timber workshop. The driveway provides access to one neighbouring property, a further parking space is located adjacent to the front meadow garden with plenty of scope for the creation of additional parking if required.

The Gardens

The gardens are something very special! The tree-lined lawns provide a park-like feel with asymmetrical designed flower beds which are beautifully planted with an abundance of colourful shrubs and flowers, with the garden bordered by a secure hedge and fence boundary. The gardens wrap around all sides of the property, the sun therefore easily chased throughout the day from the rose garden to the north and the main lawn on the south side. Adjacent to the rose garden is a useful potting shed incorporating a bin store, accessed from the parking area. A metal garden store is located adjacent to the workshop. The garden provides outside lighting and cold water tap.

Agent's Note

Prospective purchasers should note that the meadow garden to the front of the property is on a separate Title, and the driveway provides access to one neighbouring property.
