THE LOCATION Penryn is an historic and ancient market town with an active community and good everyday facilities including nursery, primary and secondary schools. The town enjoys good communication with Falmouth via its bus service and train station, which links to Truro city and mainline Paddington. Penryn is enjoying something of a renaissance being the home of the University of Cornwall which incorporates Dartington College and also of the regeneration and development of Penryn's inner Harbour and Harbour village. Penryn College is a huge asset to the town, with its excellent reputation and strong facilities. Falmouth town (approximately 2 miles) provides comprehensive shopping, schooling, business and leisure facilities.
Hill Head lies beyond St Thomas Street which runs from the town down to the riverside and contains some of Penryn's oldest, most historic homes. It is a lovely part of the of the town where Saffron Court lies about 100 yards from The Famous Barrel Pub, the head of Penryn's tidal river and the site of the former 13th century Glasney College.  

THE PROPERTY Saffron Court is tucked away off Hill Head in a little known spot. Number 1 is a lovely semi-detached double fronted Victorian house, expanded in the 1980s to create a stylish and spacious home. This gem of a house has been the much loved and cared for home of a young artistic family; it has a delightful, comfortable feel and flow with original characteristics blending nicely with their flair for presentation.
Light floods through large windows into the three bedroom, two reception room accommodation. The dual aspect main bedroom is a delight with its good size, 9' ceiling height and double doors onto a balcony looking to Penryn town. We love the kitchen/breakfast room fitted in cream with its solid oak floor, wooden earthstone worktops and access via French doors onto a timber decked terrace and garden. The garden surprised us with its relative privacy, size and usability: a great space to relax, potter and store with its timber sheds.
All in all, a genuine rarity and wholeheartedly recommended.
