The property Once part of Hillhead Farm this large barn was thoughtfully converted in 1987 and given plenty of surrounding land to give a feeling of space around the property. All three bedrooms are good sized doubles, and the main bedroom has the benefit of an en-suite and a dressing room!
The sitting/dining room is worthy of a special mention with its 13' 2" (4.01m) vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. Windows and doors to three side make this a very light yet comfortable room. The kitchen is a decent size but the new owner may wish change/redecorate to suit their requirements. Just off the kitchen is a utility room which leads to a home office (so handy today, with many working from home), this could be a fourth bedroom if required. Outside the front is mainly laid to lawn with a good selection of shrub planting and a productive vegetable area. A stone garage, large enough to accommodate four cars, would make an excellent annexe for a dependent relative perhaps (subject to necessary planning consents).
The location Situated between two roads that lead to Falmouth and Penryn respectively, the location is much quieter than one would imagine and has the feeling of being out in the countryside, yet a ten-minute walk would see you in the centre of Penryn. Accessed via a quiet no-through lane to the front of the barn and the old Hillhead road to Penryn on the other. (very useful for those with a large boat or caravan as access is excellent).
Falmouth town and harbourside is an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants and bars and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penryn) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro, for Exeter and London, Paddington. Falmouth Docks and Pendennis Shipyard are major contributors to the town's economy and along with Falmouth University (with campuses in Falmouth and Penryn) and Falmouth Marine School, specialising in traditional and modern boat building, marine engineering and environmental science, ensure an all year-round vibrant community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and another in Penryn, as well as highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro. Falmouth boasts the third deepest natural harbour in the world and is renowned for its maritime facilities which offer some of the best boating and sailing opportunities in the country. Falmouth is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
