The Property

Set on the northern banks of the Helford River, enjoying a southerly position, Westcott is a detached bungalow residence situated on Bar Road, one of the most desirable and renowned locations within this beautiful and picturesque part of south Cornwall. On the open market for the first time in over 20 years, Westcott is set back from Bar Road, a quiet no-through private road, enjoying a high degree of privacy with the rear gardens backing onto the Budock Vean golf course.

The accommodation currently provides 1200 sq ft of accommodation and would now benefit from a degree of modernisation. There is also scope for major alterations or even a re-build, as has taken place with many of the neighbouring properties.

Westcott has been well-maintained over the years with all principle rooms enjoy views over the surrounding gardens. Accessed from the rear, a central hallway leads to the sitting room with open fire and connects through to the breakfast room and kitchen. From the kitchen a door leads to a utility room with useful hobbies room and workshop off. Two evenly sized bedrooms and bathroom complete the internal accommodation.

Externally, the deep gardens have been expertly planted and stocked with an array of specimen trees, shrubs and plants with connecting lawns. The long driveway provides ample parking for several vehicles.

The Location

The Helford River is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt rivers in Cornwall, with its deep sheltered valleys, ancient oak forests and hidden creeks that cut inland along this sheltered part of the south Cornwall coast. There are still many small quays on the river-creek and a pedestrian ferry links the north and south banks.

The safety and seclusion of the Helford River has much to do with its situation within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Helford was renowned as a haven for pirates and has inspired many writers, specifically Daphne du Maurier and her Frenchman’s Creek novel.

Today, the Helford River continues to offer safe swimming and sailing facilities and a second natural harbour from which to explore the coast, much of which is owned and protected by the National Trust. As well as having fine coastal walks and creek paths, the area also has a climate suitable to many sub-tropical plants as the nearby gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens show.

The village of Mawnan Smith enjoys village shops, doctors’ surgery, restaurant, hairdressers, the Red Lion Inn and two churches. There is a more extensive range of shopping and commercial facilities at Falmouth and Truro with a direct rail link to London Paddington from Truro.
