Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An intriguing and individually designed, four bedroom detached family home, with main accommodation occupying one level from a covered car port to a large, attractive entrance hallway, a lounge/diner, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, large bathroom and a separate shower room.
Within the lower ground level, the basement, is a large workshop and second storage room (initially designed as a garage). There is a sweeping driveway providing multiple parking and the property is situated centrally within its generous gardens. Beautifully framed views of the sea are available from the living rooms, main bedroom and extensive balcony.
This property is located to within the Mongleath area, neighbouring the Penmere Manor and it’s beautiful, tree lined grounds, moments from the highly regarded primary schools of St Marys and St Francis and walking distance of Falmouth School at Trescobeas Road.

Day to day schooling facilities are immediately available at the end of the road with a popular general grocery store, in addition to a second store, and a range of shops. Mongleath Road is an attractive tree lined avenue and also offers public transport facilities such as bus stops and nearby Penmere train Station which is a branchline providing a link to the City of Truro where there is a national mainline connection.

Within minutes, access can also be gained to the Captains Walk which is a pedestrian footpath providing access to the beautiful Nature Reserve of Swanpool and onto Swanpool beach, in turn from here of course, there are breathtaking coastal walks available for the more adventurous!

Based around a thriving harbour Falmouth is gateway to the beautiful Fal River which runs through an area of natural beauty and Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle marks the entrance to what is the world's third deepest natural harbour.

The town is famous for its creative buzz with many art galleries displaying contemporary works and venues showcasing independent films and live bands. The many reasons to visit the town centre include, the fascinating maritime heritage; the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty along the Helford and Fal Rivers – perfect for walking and family days out; watersports; boat trips running from the pier and quay; and plenty of family friendly attractions. Falmouth is surrounded by several fantastic family friendly beaches and is known for its year round events calendar.

Falmouth’s maritime legacy and coastal culture is a huge part of its charm boasting world class watersports on its sheltered waters including gig rowing, kayaking, diving and regularly hosting sailing events such as Falmouth Regatta, and the Pendennis Cup.


This has been a much loved and cherished family home since 1972; it is centrally positioned within a generous garden, provides a lovely framed view of the sea from the lounge, kitchen and main bedroom. The design would have been cutting edge during its build era of the late 60’s and is indeed, extremely desirable in today’s market to create a wonderfully contemporary home, with the benefit of generous, bright rooms, lovely views, large hall and covered car port parking to front. Double glazing and Fischer electric storage heating throughout.

The gardens are to the majority laid to lawn and boast mature shrub/tree borders providing a high degree of privacy to the rear and side, but with a wide driveway from the front of the plot offering highly valued additional parking. Subject to the necessary planning permission/building regulation, it possibly offers much scope for the future creation of a double garage, possibly another level of accommodation or even self-contained annex.
