Full description

To be sold for the first time in over 70 years, a hugely characterful semi-detached house, close to the head of picturesque Pill Creek, Trelissick House and Gardens and within a 5/10 minute walk of nearby Loe Beach, providing deceptive 4 bedroomed, 3 reception and 2-bathroomed accommodation with detached garage, parking and well enclosed, stocked and mature gardens.

The Property - Originally part of the nearby Trelissick estate, 'Middle Ponsmaen' has been in our clients' family's ownership since 1945 and is to be sold in the open market for the first time in over 70 years.

Available for sale with the added benefit of no onward chain and immediate vacant possession, 'Middle Ponsmaen' enjoys a delightful setting close to the head of picturesque Pill Creek whose tree-lined banks lead directly onto the extensive, deep, day-sailing waters of the Carrick Roads (Fal Estuary), widely regarded as the finest, most diverse and safest sailing waters in the country.

On the quiet roadside connecting the neighbouring National Trust Trelissick estate with the centre of Feock Churchtown, 'Middle Ponsmaen' enjoys a peaceful, rural outlook over the adjoining woodland and countryside from all rooms.

Recently redecorated throughout, charming and hugely characterful accommodation is accessed from the broad paved front terrace with covered entrance door to a particularly well proportioned entrance hallway (5.59m x 3.41m) with open fireplace and connecting door to the dining room with large walk-in bay window and integral wood-burning stove. Sitting room with multi-fuel burning stove and the kitchen/dining both lead from a central hallway and both enjoy fine views over the well stocked, mature, level rear gardens to the adjoining countryside beyond.

Family bathroom and four first floor bedrooms, three well proportioned double and one single, lead from the first floor landing and all enjoy superb rural views. To the side and access from the kitchen there is a pretty terrace with access to a further bedroom/study with en-suite bathroom and steps to a useful workshop/utility/store with covered access onto the front paved driveway, providing off-road parking for one car in addition to the detached garage. Some purchasers would be interested to know that the bedroom five/study, en-suite bathroom and workshop/utility could easily provide self-contained accommodation, if required and subject to any necessary consents. Pretty, well enclosed and beautifully stocked rear gardens are a particular feature with full width broad paved patio, lawn with circular water feature backing onto and enjoying views over the adjoining countryside and woodland.

In all, a beautiful home in this most sought-after area, ideal for family, holiday and retirement purchasers alike and as the vendors' Sole Agents, an early viewing appointment is strongly recommended.

The Location - Set close to the head of Pill Creek, 'Middle Ponsmaen' is perfectly situated for the idyllic circular walks in the area, including around Trelissick, where there is a beautiful woodland walk along the banks of the River Fal; to Loe Beach where there is a sailing club and popular cafe, to Restronguet Point, Harcourt, Trolver Croft and Goonpiper.

In addition to the sailing, dinghy launching and kayaking facilities from Loe Beach, there are numerous sailing clubs around the shoreline of the Carrick Roads, notably at Mylor Harbour, an approximate twenty minute driveway, which, over recent years, has become the county's pre-eminent boating centre. Golf courses are nearby at Killiow, Truro and Falmouth; highly regarded country primary schools are within a few minutes' drive at Devoran and Kea. Regular bus services to nearby Trelissick, Playing Place and the cathedral city of Truro, approximately five miles distant, being the county's legal, administrative, commercial, retailing and educational centre, with full range of junior and secondary schooling, mainline rail link to London (Paddington) and main theatre venue, the Hall for Cornwall.

The port of Falmouth is approximately nine miles distant, which offers a fine range of restaurants, quayside bars, galleried, sub-tropical garden, safe sandy bathing beaches and access onto the South West Coast Path which continues to the neighbouring coves at Swanpool, Maenporth and beyond onto the beautiful Helford River and shoreline of The Lizard Peninsula.
