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


A detached individual bungalow occupying a quiet, traffic-free position in this sought-after cul-de-sac, close to Maenporth Beach, the South West Coast Path and well served village of Mawnan Smith. Providing particularly well proportioned 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom accommodation, in need of some updating but benefiting from oil fired central heating, replacement uPVC double glazing, ample parking, an integral garage and extensive loft area, both of which offer great scope for conversion to further accommodation if required (subject to consents), and large, well stocked, sheltered and extremely private gardens which back onto open farmland and, from the rear of which, lovely views are enjoyed to Rosemullion Head and out to sea.

The Property

Constructed, we understand, during the late 1960's/early 1970's, 'Collingswood' has been in our client's family's ownership for approximately 30 years and is now to be sold for only the third time since construction.

The property occupies a quiet, traffic-free location, off a short private driveway, off this sought-after residential close, with well enclosed, level and attractively stocked front gardens providing direct and easy access to the property, including an integral garage which, subject to consents, could readily be included into the main accommodation, if required.

Throughout, the accommodation is particularly well proportioned and comprises an entrance porch, reception hall, large lounge with broad picture window, separate dining area, rear conservatory, kitchen, utility room, master bedroom suite, two further double bedrooms and a second bathroom with separate WC.

Most prospective purchasers will wish to undertake a programme of modernisation works to the kitchen and bathrooms etc and, should yet more accommodation be required, an extensive loft area offers immense potential, again subject to all necessary permissions.

To the rear, the property benefits from a large garden which is particularly well stocked and backs onto open farmland at the rear, with the rear boundary currently enjoying the best views to Rosemullion Head and out to sea.

A home with great scope and potential, ideal for retirement and family purchasers alike.

The Location

Trelawney Close is a small, select cul-de-sac of detached individual properties, within just half a mile of safe, sandy Maenporth Beach and the stunning South West Coast Path which leads to some of south Cornwall's most beautiful coastal scenery, in the direction of Falmouth to the north-east, and Rosemullion Head and the mouth of the Helford River to the south-west.

The centre of the extremely well served village of Mawnan Smith is just one mile distant and whose excellent day-to-day amenities include a thatched public house, The Red Lion Inn, convenience stores, electrical shop, county primary school, church, doctors surgery, hairdressers, cafe, restaurant and craft shops. The port of Falmouth, regularly voted as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK, is just a ten minute drive away.
