  • Country: England


We are delighted to offer as our clients sole agents, this spacious three bedroom detached bungalow which is tucked away in an almost 'secret' location at the end of a long private driveway and on a generous plot with large gardens that enjoy a sheltered aspect with a good degree of privacy and seclusion.

Located in an ideal secluded location within easy walking distance of:

* gyllyngvase beach
* harbour front and town centre
* rail station links to city of truro and beyond

The bungalow was designed by Messrs Taylor & Crowther Architects for our clients and is being offered for sale for the first time since it was built some 60 years ago. The bungalow has been well maintained during that time and has current features including gas central heating by radiators, double glazed windows, Canadian pine suspended flooring and cavity wall insulation.

Whilst currently being a spacious three bedroom detached bungalow in its own right, there is significant potential to extend the property (with the required planning permissions and regulations) by incorporating the existing loft area and turning this into a dormer bungalow with pleasant first floor views. There is plenty of room to extend the ground floor, utilising the generous outdoor areas and the chance to create a garage workshop alongside. The possibilities are there for someone with the imagination and budget to match

The accommodation includes in sequence, an entrance porch, reception hall, lounge, separate dining room, original fitted kitchen, three double bedrooms, shower room/wc combined and a large loft area.

Outside has an abundance of parking, an attached garage, a sunken walled garden alongside and to the Western aspect an established terraced garden with lawns and a sun terrace.

The location is so convenient for the town centre, Falmouth's famous sea front and beaches, Pendennis Castle. Events Square which is home to a number of festivals throughout the year and of course one of our principal attractions, The National Maritime Museum. There is a branch line railway station which links Falmouth Docks to the cathedral city of Truro and its main line station which connects to Penzance in the far West and to the East, the national rail network.

An early viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this fine property and location.

Why not call and arrange a personal viewing at your convenience.
