Full description

An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a 2-bedroomed bungalow in a small, select and highly secure, walled and gated, courtyard development of just 8 properties, discreetly yet most conveniently positioned within just a few moments' walk of the rapidly developing university town of Penryn.

The Location - Tonkins Ope is a small, select courtyard development of just eight properties, set within secure, walled and gated grounds, accessed off The Terrace, close to Penryn town centre, whose excellent day-to-day amenities are all within easy reach.

Secondary pedestrian access is provided to the rear of the development, off Saracen Crescent, where street parking is available and, we understand, parking permits on application from Penryn Town Centre. Town centre amenities include a doctors surgery, schools, shops, bars, commercial facilities, cafes and restaurants, etc, as well as highly regular bus and rail links to the nearby university campus at Tremough and the bustling port of Falmouth, just two miles distant.

The Property - Tonkins Ope received commendations from Carrick District Council Design Awards in 2007 and Cornish Building Group Awards in 2006. Number 8 is the only bungalow in the development and, consequently, provides prospective purchasers with a very rare opportunity to acquire an easily maintained single-storey home, in an extremely convenient setting.

From The Terrace, an arched doorway, with entry-phone system, provides access into the development, with a paved and illuminated pathway leading to Number 8, situated close to the rear. The property benefits from a well enclosed and easily maintained, sunny, south-facing private patio-style garden, with the accommodation benefiting from sealed unit double glazing, gas fired central heating, 17'10" living room, refitted kitchen, two bedrooms and a reappointed bathroom/WC with white suite.

The illuminated residents pathway continues to the rear gateway, and the communal parts are cleaned and maintained by the management company for a modest contribution of £25 per month, per property.

To be sold for the first time since construction in 2006, and with the additional benefit of immediate vacant possession with no onward chain, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.
