With captivating, far-reaching countryside views over the nearby National Trust land, rolling fields beyond and offering a stunning snapshot of the highly renowned Helford River in the distance, a detached 3 bedroom property of excellent proportions, set on one level and facing south westerly, within its well established plot, providing ample driveway parking, spacious garage and particularly private gardens to three sides - all within minutes' of the well served village of Mawnan Smith.

The Property

Arranged almost centrally within its well established and mature plot, 'Long Meadow' is an individual detached property with superb sweeping gardens to the rear and side, offering living accommodation set on one level and showcasing mesmerising countryside views to the rear over the nearby National Trust land, rolling fields beyond and the Helford River in the distance.

Upon entry into the driveway, an initial brick-paved garden path, with delightful blooming flower beds and established borders, leads to an interesting mono pitched front elevation and cut stone facade, where the entrance to the property can be located.

Internally, the accommodation features a reception hallway, with bedrooms located off the inner hallway, together with the family shower room and WC, with further en-suite facilities to the master. On the opposite side of the property, a spacious living room flows into a dining area, which in-turn opens elegantly to a particular highlight of the property, a broad conservatory, where delightful rural views can be enjoyed. A nicely proportioned and well appointed kitchen benefits from a separate utility room, with pathway leading to a side access to the spacious and well sized garage. Outside, beautiful gardens to three sides sweep around the property, from the initial driveway and garage, showcasing rural views and bordered with mature trees and hedging.

In all, 'Long Meadow' presents a highly unique opportunity, within the confines of the well renowned village of Mawnan Smith, to acquire a delightful home on a near level plot.

The Location

'Long Meadow’ is situated on the eastern side of village outskirts, with nearby walks and footpaths leading to the South West Coast Path and the shoreline of the Helford River. Consequently, there are beautiful walks 'on the doorstep' to Grebe Beach, Durgan, Helford Passage and Ferry Boat Inn in one direction, and Mawnan Church, Rosemullion Head and Maenporth Beach in the other. The village itself has for many decades been recognised as one of the most sought-after destinations in south Cornwall, with picturesque Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens nearby, and excellent day-to-day amenities including a thatched public house, The Red Lion Inn, doctors surgery, convenience stores, restaurant, cafe, hairdressers, craft stores and bus service to Falmouth, approximately four miles distant.
