The property Heather & Lay have sold thousands of homes in Falmouth during the last 35 years, but nothing quite like this.
A unique chance to secure one of two brand new bungalows, currently being constructed in this wonderfully sheltered and historic walled garden setting.
The scarcity and high value of building land dictates that most developments today compromise houses and flats.
It is a treat to be selling what will be two outstanding and thoughtfully designed bungalows where the developers themselves have such pride in what they are creating.
The three-bedroom accommodation and proportions are generous; large windows will flood in light and attention is paid to high quality fixtures, fittings and finish.
It is reassuring in these times of rising and unpredictable utility and heating costs, that these stylish properties have eco friendly credentials with the installation of Air Source Heat Pumps and a Solar Photovoltaic system with underfloor heating.
Each bungalow will have parking space for 2 cars, by the entrance.
The open plan living space will be fabulous where large floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors open out on to paved terracing and the lawned and beautifully enclosed walled garden.
Stylish kitchens with quality German appliances and bathrooms using rak sanitary ware, bedrooms will carpeted and luxury vinyl tiling in other areas.
The Walled Garden bungalows will have 'living' roofs and the reassurance of a Build Zone 10 year warranty.
The Walled Garden is set within woodland grounds of the Penmere Manor Hotel, originally known as Penmere House and built in the early 1800's for one of the prominent Packet Ship captains. Penmere House was transformed into a hotel in the late 1950's and has been family owned and run ever since.
The setting of these two brand new bungalows is stunning, nestling within the large and lovely former kitchen garden of Penmere House, enclosed by an historic 7'- 8' high Grade II listed stone wall capped with natural slate and fired earth ridges.
This is a much sought-after residential position and area, about one mile from town, harbourside and seafront whilst local shops and two Primary schools are within a few minutes' walk. The excellent Co-Op is a welcome addition and a great facility on one's doorstep, opening early 'til late. Penmere Railway Station is nearby, providing a link to Penryn and Truro and mainline Paddington. A lovely 10-15 minute walk from The Walled Garden takes you to Swanpool Nature Reserve and beach, accessing the Southwest Coastal path and the most gloriously uplifting scenery.
Falmouth is a thriving and vibrant town with an eclectic mixture of independent and national shops, many galleries showcasing local art and crafts and an excellent and varied selection of places to eat and drink. Events Square and the National Maritime Museum regularly host activities and events throughout the year including Falmouth Classics, Falmouth Week and the Oyster and Sea Shanty festivals. Falmouth seafront faces south over the Bay with sandy beaches and access to the Southwest coastal path leading back to Swanpool near to the house. No wonder then, that Falmouth is consistently voted in the top five favorite places to live in the UK.
