This deceptive property is set within generous gardens and is located just off the centre of Porkellis down a private lane. The village itself has a fine local community which is served well by a range of local amenities including 'Star Inn' public house, church and village hall. Primary schools can be found in the neighbouring villages of Wendron and Halwyn. There are secondary schools at Penryn, five miles, Helston, five miles and Falmouth approximately seven miles.

The 'Retreat' was built-in the 1980's offering well laid out spacious accommodation with the added advantage of a potential annex, to be used by a family member or possibly for letting.
A lovely peaceful, semi-rural setting yet within a central position in the village and only a twenty minute drive to all of South West Cornwall's main towns.

The ever expanding University Campus at Tremough (Penryn) is located approximately five miles away. A regular bus service from the village, runs to the surrounding towns, where a much wider range of shopping, business and leisure facilities can be found.
Occupying a sought after quiet, semi-rural position in the heart of the Porkellis, standing in south facing grounds and gardens approaching a third of an acre, is this spacious detached 1980's bungalow bordering open farmland. The property offers three-four bedrooms, attic space with en-suite, living room, kitchen, utility room, sitting room/dining room, conservatory, study, family bathroom and separate cloakroom. There is the advantage of a potential annex with living room, bedroom and shower room. Generous off-road parking and a double garage, patios, gardens and views.

The grounds are beautifully mature with large level gardens, perfect for keen gardeners or families. The gardens are well stocked with trees, shrubs and plants, giving a good degree of privacy. From here view are enjoyed over the open farmland and out to the countryside in the distance.

On entering the property, there is the living room enjoying the splendid views into the gardens and sliding patio doors leading onto a covered seating terrace.

Off the main reception hall is access into the kitchen and utility room, a large sitting room incorporating a dining area and conservatory. Views, again, are enjoyed from here over the gardens. From the dining room, a staircase rises to an attic room with en-suite bathroom (this is not to regulations).

On the ground floor are three double bedrooms, a family bathroom, separate cloakroom and at the far end of the hall is access to a additional accommodation/potential annex which has a shower room, bedroom and combined living area. This could be ideal for a family member or potentially letting.

There is generous parking with space for multiple cars, boats/caravan storage.
