THE LOCATION About 100 years ago Mongleath Farm occupied this area of the rural outskirts of Falmouth with just a smattering of dwellings around and about. Today, Mongleath is a popular area in which to live with a varied selection of homes mostly built in the 1960s and later, with a lower density and larger garden size than is often the case today.

The location is convenient on a bus route to town and seafront with two local primary schools, railway station, shops at Boslowick and an excellent 'early 'til late' Co-op very nearby.  

THE PROPERTY Facing south within a lovely large plot, about 150' deep and 60' wide, Spindle wood, 78 Mongleath Road would have been one of the earlier houses, built in the 1930s on the old Farmstead.
This fine detached house is perfect as a family home with its flexible four bedrooms (three up and one downstairs), accommodation and superb 31' long bow window double reception room. Proportions throughout are generous and consistent with the style of its era of construction. The rear garden is surprisingly large and an absolute treat; full of choice shrubs, plants and small trees with a lawn and plenty of patio space to relax as well as several fruit trees and bushes for produce.
The house is elevated and has some lovey first floor views over Mongleath and Boslowick valleys, out to sea.
It is rare to find such a 'complete' family house in this price range - it is thoroughly appealing and comes highly recommended!
