One of the oldest properties located along Kernick Road at the top this historic town dating back to the early to mid 1800's, a middle terraced stone cottage with a single storey ground floor 1960's extension.
The accommodation provides three bedrooms and two reception rooms along with a kitchen and bathroom.
The property is in need of a scheme of sympathetic interior upgrading and decoration, yet has lovely elevated views from the first floor across Penryn along Penryn River and out to Falmouth and the surrounding countryside.
Gas central heating. Double glazing. Pretty south facing well stocked enclosed garden.
The property is located at the beginning of Kernick Road and is well placed for access to the wide range of local facilities this thriving, historic town has to offer.

The majority of local services are within a comparatively short walk including Penryn train station with a branch line linking to both Falmouth and onto Truro linking into the National Rail Network.

Penryn Primary Academy, Penryn College and Nursery provisions can be found within a five minute walk from the property with the University Campus at Tremough walkable within around 10 minutes.

The historic town centre is again around five to ten minute walk down hill where a wide range of local shops can be found including a Post Office, General Store, various take away food outlets, several Public Houses, Cafes and Galleries. Asda superstore is within a 15 minute walk as well as a DIY store. A bus service runs along Kernick Road providing access into Falmouth where a much wider range of shopping, business and leisure facilities can be found.
Believed to date back to around the early to mid 1800's and started life as a farmhouse, 3 Kernick Road is now a middle terraced house with tiled rear and stone front elevation.

The property enjoys impressive views from all three of the first floor bedrooms which stretch across this historic town, Glasney fields and woods, down to Penryn River and out to Falmouth Harbour in the distance.

The gardens are an absolute feature, are well stocked with an abundance of flowering plants, shrubs and trees and there is also a detached block built out-building.

The property is in need of a scheme of sympathetic up-grading and decoration throughout. It has the huge benefit of gas central heating and double glazing.

Given its convenient location, just above this historic town and being within a stones throw of the train station and the University Campus at Tremough, it will appeal to young and growing families and also to property investors looking to let the property as a student house.
