Full description

To be sold for the first time in 60 years: a semi-detached house occupying a convenient yet quiet and secure position, just a few minutes' walk from the centre of this well served village, adjoining open countryside, enjoying panoramic and very far-reaching views over the village and beyond to miles of surrounding countryside, providing versatile 3 bedroom, 3 reception room and 2 bath/shower room accommodation, with triple car port, double garage and attractively stocked and landscaped gardens.

The Property - In our client's ownership for sixty years, 2 North View is a semi-detached house, substantially extended and improved approximately thirty years ago, occupying a 'hidden' position, close to the centre of the village, and with many rooms enjoying magnificent, far-reaching views over the outskirts of the village and miles of surrounding unspoilt countryside to Falmouth, and beyond, in the distance.

Benefiting from hardwood framed double glazing and a comprehensive oil fired central heating system, the versatile accommodation comprises, in brief: a gabled entrance porch, reception hall, kitchen/breakfast room, large utility room, rear porch with cloakroom/WC, versatile double aspect dining room, well proportioned lounge, conservatory and snug/TV room. To the first floor, a split level landing leads to the three bedrooms including a double aspect master bedroom with private en-suite shower room, in addition to which there is a bathroom/WC with white suite.

A driveway to the rear of the neighbouring property leads to the excellent parking facilities enjoyed by Number 2 which include a three-bay car port, block-built double garage and additional parking/turning area. The gardens, which lie to the front of the house, are highly secure being enclosed to all sides by timber fencing and mature hedging, and most attractively landscaped with paved sun terracing, a gently sloping lawn, gravelled pathways, patio and kitchen garden area with cold frame, greenhouse and large timber shed.

The Location - 2 North View is quietly positioned off popular Carwinion Road, just a few moments' walk from the centre of the village, whose excellent day-to-day amenities include a bowling club, restaurant, hairdressers, convenience stores, garage, active village hall, electrical shop, doctors surgery, church, primary school and a thatched public house - The Red Lion Inn.

Beautiful circular walks surround the village; a short distance along Carwinion Road is the entrance to Carwinion Gardens and beyond which, Church Roads leads to the mouth of the Helford River. National Trust Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens are on the southern side of the village and close to which are the picturesque creekside hamlet of Durgan, and Helford Passage, home of The Ferryboat Inn. Maenporth's sandy bathing beach is less than a five minute drive away, and the port of Falmouth and cathedral city of Truro are approximately five and twelve miles distant respectively.
