Full description

Set within a large, level, idyllic, secluded yet convenient plot, adjacent to Swanpool Nature Reserve and within a few moments walk of Swanpool Lake and beach with Penmere railway station nearby also, a superb and distinctive 4-bedroomed home, providing exceptionally light and generous living space, overlooking its own beautifully landscaped gardens, extending to approximately 1/3 of an acre, with ample parking and detached double garage with boarded loft over.

The Property - Built circa 1986 within the grounds of neighbouring Marlborough House, one of Falmouth's most distinguished period residences, 'Windsong' is a fine, detached and individual executive-style house or family home, providing impeccably presented four-bedroomed, three/four reception roomed accommodation, set in glorious, peaceful, private and picturesque gardens, adjacent to Swanpool Nature Reserve and within a few moments level walk of Swanpool Lake and Beach, from where breathtaking coastal walks extend along the South West Coast Path.

During the last two years, the property has been thoroughly improved by the current owners, with high quality replacement double glazing throughout, as well as having been tastefully re-carpeted, re-decorated and upgraded where necessary, now providing an ideal opportunity for family and early retirement purchasers to 'move straight into' this distinctive and individual home, 'hidden' from the outside world but still within an approximate twenty/twenty five minute walk of Falmouth town centre.

Located at the head of a private tree and shrub-lined driveway, which serves just two other properties, the house enjoys a sunny, south-westerly aspect overlooking its own, private gardens which are beautifully stocked and landscaped to provide sweeping lawns, lily pond, paved patio and sun terrace, shrub-lined rear gardens with breakfast terrace, gravelled forecourt and substantial, detached, block-built double garage, with 'sail loft' over and further adjacent parking, ideal for those with numerous vehicles, boats or caravan etc.

Recently re-fitted with highly quality white uPVC double glazing and with a newly installed Worcester gas central heating, the accommodation is perfectly presented throughout and benefits from very many high quality features including a deep double aspect lounge opening into a superb architect-designed hardwood conservatory overlooking the grounds, large dining room with open fireplace and adjacent 'snug' leading to a fully fitted kitchen/'breakfast room, utility room and separate rear porch, ground floor cloakroom, and study. To the first floor, all bedrooms enjoy an attractive outlook over the surrounding gardens and to woodland beyond, and a family bathroom/WC has been re-fitted with a high quality white suite and separate shower cubicle.

An early viewing appointment is unhesitatingly recommended by the vendors' Sole Agents, Messrs Laskowski & Company.
