Full description

Occupying a generous plot, close to the village centre, adjoining unspoilt countryside to the southern and western boundaries with beautiful far-reaching valley views, an individual 4-bedroomed detached house originally constructed, we believe, in the 1920’s, now requiring refurbishment or possible redevelopment, subject to the necessary planning consents.

The Property - 'Alameda' stands within a good sized, fairly level plot on the edge of this extremely sought-after village, close to the unspoilt Helford River and beautiful walks along the South West Coast Path.

Outside, a lawned front garden sets the property back from the roadside behind a mature Cornish hedge providing privacy, to one side is a broad and deep gravelled driveway featuring double entrance gates to Sampys Hill, suitable for parking many vehicles, caravan or even boat storage. A broad detached garage with electric door and inspection pit, stands towards the right rear boundary and behind which is a timber shed and greenhouse. The rear garden is a particular feature, as like many rooms of the property, enjoys beautiful rolling valley views over unspoilt farmland to the south and west.

The substantial and versatile accommodation is arranged with four well proportioned rooms (two/three reception rooms) on the ground floor in addition to a separate kitchen and conservatory a further extension to the rear, loosely arranged as an 'annexe' room plus adjacent WC and lower basement, all of which could be reconfigured to provide a separate letting 'unit', or ancillary accommodation, if required. The first floor is also well proportioned and features two further bedrooms plus an inner landing with plenty of storage with access to a family bathroom resulting in the property having the potential for five bedrooms without compromising on living space.

The Location - Mawnan Smith has, for many years, been one of the most sought-after villages in south Cornwall by virtue of its proximity to the beautiful south coast, excellent day-sailing waters of the Helford River and its picturesque tree-lined creeks, sub-tropical gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan, and excellent facilities which include a church, two village stores, post office, restaurant, thatched public house (The Red Lion), garage, craft shops, cafe, electrical store, doctors surgery, charity store, hairdressers and regular bus service to the port of the Falmouth, approximately seven miles distant. Beautiful walks abound in the area whether over surrounding fields to Durgan at the mouth of the Helford River or to pretty Port Navas and Anna Maria creeks, or along the breathtaking South West Coast Path which, from Church Road, leads along the clifftops to sandy Maenporth Beach, Swanpool and Falmouth beyond.
