Detached chalet bungalow and building plot

An unusual combination of a detached chalet-style bungalow, ideal for refurbishment and extension, with an adjoining building plot, benefiting from outline planning permission for the erection of an additional dwelling (PA17/08650), total plot circa 1/3 of an acre. Located on the southern outskirts of Falmouth yet within an approximate mile of the town centre, close to Falmouth Golf Club, Swanpool Beach, the South West Coast Path and the North Helford River area.

The Property

'Trewilby' enjoys a mature level plot, totalling approximately one third of an acre and currently comprises a detached chalet-style bungalow residence, ideal for refurbishment and extension if required, with surrounding mature gardens and two gated driveways. The current accommodation provides an entrance hallway, dual aspect sitting room with open fireplace, kitchen/dining room, two ground floor bedrooms and bath/shower room with, from the first landing, a third bedroom and access to a walk-in loft area which could easily be converted to provide a fourth bedroom, if required.

To the rear of 'Trewilby' is a detached garage with two gated driveways leading from Bank Lane with, to the front, well stocked and enclosed gardens with timber decked terrace adjacent to the property. The new driveway will be located to the rear of the garage, leading to the building plot, which is located in the existing side garden.

The cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial, educational, legal and health centre, is approximately twelve miles distant and from where there is a main-line rail link to London (Paddington).
