THE LOCATION Mylor Bridge is a thriving and much sought after Creekside village. It has an active, friendly community and excellent facilities that include the Lemon Arms Pub, churches, a highly regarded primary school, pre-school, playgroups, a Doctor's surgery, Dentist, a Post Office and Newsagent, Hairdressers, a well stocked village store, award winning Butcher's shop plus a Fishmonger. The Village Hall has an extensive program that includes exhibitions, a history group, keep-fit classes and monthly cinema showings. There are also several local clubs, tennis courts, a bowling green, playing fields plus regular bus service. Small wonder that the Sunday Times named Mylor Bridge as 'One of the Best Places to Live' (2015)!
The Village is located approximately 4 miles from the harbour town of Falmouth and 8 miles from the Cathedral City of Truro - both of which have good schools, excellent shops, business and recreational facilities.
Mylor Creek is a tributary of the River Fal, leading into the Carrick Roads with access to some of the best day sailing waters in the county. There are a number of yacht clubs nearby including those at Restronguet, Mylor, Flushing and several in Falmouth. Mylor Harbour, just a short distance away, has outstanding facilities including a Marina with pontoon and swinging moorings, chandlers, marine services plus restaurants and a general store/café 

THE PROPERTY The current owners of Number 24 Lemon Hill love their village home and have nurtured and improved it over the last 26 years resulting in somewhere rather special to live.
The house was built in1905, located end terrace of 3, in the heart of the village and just a few minutes' walk from the creekside. The property has a great combination of good size, originality and brightness where light floods through and stylish and luxurious features add a quality and depth. Period features such as the several open fireplaces, sash windows, floorboards, doors and cupboard spaces blend beautifully with a deep blue oil fired Rayburn and contemporary bathroom and recently installed kitchen. This area flows beautifully, opening into a sheltered courtyard via ingenuous tri-folding doors. From here, steps lead up to an enclosed, established garden, rich in bird life and enjoying summer sunshine for much of the day.
All in all, a glorious village house, ideal as a main or for holidays - wholeheartedly recommended!

We also understand that the mid-terraced property of the three is used as a very successful holiday let and so immediate comparisons can be made if desired by a potential purchaser.
