Full description

Enjoying a 'hidden', elevated position, just 3½ miles from the port of Falmouth and enjoying panoramic views over College Reservoir and surrounding countryside to the sea, a detached, substantial, individual house, providing extensive and extremely versatile 4/5-bedroomed accommodation, plus a superb annexe ideal for a dependent relative etc, set within attractively landscaped and well stocked grounds of approaching 1 acre, with integral double garage and ample additional private parking.

The Location - 'Antron House' is positioned on the southern outskirts of the village of Mabe, whose day-to-day amenities include a public house, hairdressers, convenience stores, village hall, junior school and regular bus service.

The rapidly expanding university campus at Tremough is approximately one mile distant, the borough town of Penryn is two miles, Mawnan Smith is three miles and the ever-popular port of Falmouth is just three and a half miles distant - having recently been voted, once again, by the Sunday Times as one of the best places to live in the UK. There are attractive circular walks around nearby College and Argal Reservoirs, the beautiful tree-lined creeks of the Helford River are just a few minutes' drive away, Falmouth provides boating facilities for all abilities, golf courses are nearby at Budock Vean, Falmouth and Killiow, and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's administrative, retailing and commercial centre, is approximately eleven miles distant.

The Property - Dating, we understand, from the 1800's, 'Antron House' occupies a 'hidden' setting, at the foot of a long driveway, with the extensive and highly adaptable accommodation enjoying far-reaching, panoramic views over nearby College Reservoir, to surrounding countryside and Falmouth Bay beyond.

A spacious entrance hall with large inner hall with oak staircase leads to the main accommodation, which benefits from oil fired central heating and majority double glazing to rooms which, in brief, comprise: a magnificent family sized triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room, lounge with beamed ceiling, open fireplace and glass-fronted log-burner, separate dining room, utility area, downstairs fifth bedroom/study, shower room/WC and internal courtesy door to a large integral double garage with electronic door.

Upstairs, the part galleried landing leads to four bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, and to the superbly appointed family bathroom with fully tiled walls, under-floor heating and high quality white suite.

The first floor annexe benefits from independent external access if required, together with the far-reaching reservoir, countryside and sea views, and the interconnecting bedroom (four) can, together with its en-suite shower room, be incorporated within the annexe if preferred.

The impressive long driveway approach is, we understand, in the ownership of 'Antron House', and, in addition to the integral garage, there is further forecourt parking, together with a side parking area with steps leading to the annexe.

The front gardens comprise a large area of lawn with well stocked borders, at the foot of which an area enjoys a particularly lovely outlook over the reservoir and outskirts of Penryn, to surrounding countryside and the sea.

Of stunning architectural design, the kitchen/breakfast room benefits from much natural light and doors which open directly onto a paved patio which, in turn, leads to a raised south-facing sun terrace with inset lighting - an ideal outside entertaining and al fresco dining area. The extensive rear gardens again comprise gently sloping lawns, well enclosed to all boundaries, together with a kitchen garden area, greenhouse and useful tractor/implement store.

In all, the extensive gardens and grounds extend to approaching one acre or thereabouts.
