Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Enjoying elevated southerly views across open countryside towards Gweek's working boatyard and tidal creek, this exceptional property has been extended and refurbished offering up to 6 bedrooms with the versatility to provide, if needed, a separate, self-contained ground floor annexe.
Gweek is located at the head of the Helford River, and is a village with an active and thriving community which is well served by a popular village pub with restaurant, post office/local store, Gweek Mission Church as well as the boat yard. The village also has a tea garden and is also home to the National Seal Sanctuary, Gweek. The village also has several musical groups including Gweek Silver Band together with an active amateur dramatics group.

The civil parish was created from part of the parish of Constantine by boundary revision in 1986. It has been a port since Roman times and was a thriving port in the Tudor period, with its own Customs House. During the mining boom, a tin-smelting blowing house operated at the quayside.

It is situated approximately three miles east of Helston which is where RNAS Culdrose is base. The town has a wide range of day to day shopping needs as well as a popular secondary school and various leisure and recreational activities.

The colourful harbourside town of Falmouth is located approximately eight miles away and the Cathedral City of Truro is approximately thirteen miles distant. There are mainline railway stations at both Truro and Redruth with direct links to London Paddington. Newquay airport provides flights to both Gatwick and Stanstead within just over an hour.
This dormer residence is situated along a quiet country lane on the approach to this sought after village. The property has been hugely extended over the years and has the benefits of oil fired central heating, double-glazing and a superb well equipped fitted kitchen, three shower rooms and a family bathroom.

The accommodation is both generous and versatile featuring a south facing living and dining room with a triple aspect conservatory added at the rear which enjoys the superb elevated views over surrounding countryside towards the village and the boat yard in the distance.

There are two ground floor bedrooms which are separated by an internal hall from the main accommodation, one of which has an en-suite shower room and this part of the property having its own separate access; which could make it an ideal self-contained annexe. There are four first floor bedrooms as well as a family bathroom, the master of which has access to a good sized balcony and has also been fitted with a luxury appointed shower room.

The property enjoys a due south facing elevation with a broad paved sun terrace running across the whole length of the rear of the property providing a perfect place for entertaining! There are a series of terraced lawns enjoying the wonderful countryside views and a good sized enclosed lawned garden to the side of the property provides the perfect sheltered spot.

We thoroughly recommend an immediate viewing appointment to appreciate the amount of quality of accommodation on offer in this delightful sought after rural location.
