Full description

A detached 2-bedroomed bungalow, in a small cul-de-sac of well kept properties, providing immaculately maintained and presented accommodation, most tastefully decorated throughout, benefiting from modern gas fired central heating and replacement uPVC double glazing, set within beautiful gardens which are well enclosed and private to the rear, and with driveway parking in addition to an attached garage with electronic up-and-over door.

The Property - 54 Summerheath, 'Harbour Heights', is a detached bungalow, faultlessly presented, both inside and out, set in a quiet cul-de-sac of similarly well kept bungalows, close to the centre of Mabe village, just four miles from the port of Falmouth.

Benefiting from comprehensive gas fired central heating with a modern boiler, and high quality replacement uPVC double glazing, the most tastefully presented accommodation includes an entrance hall, well fitted kitchen, well proportioned lounge, inner hall, 'master' bedroom with built-in wardrobes, adaptable second double bedroom, and a refitted shower room with white Heritage suite. If preferred, a bath could easily be reinstalled.

Outside, front gardens are open-plan and include a well kept area of lawn and attractive shrub bed. A deep driveway provides off-road parking for two cars in addition to the attached garage, and a paved pathway provides easy level access to the front entrance door.

Paved pathways extend to both sides of the bungalow to the rear gardens which are larger than expected and comprise three attractive terraces, with mature borders which provide a high degree of privacy and security. From the 'top' of these gardens, there is an attractive outlook over the rear of the bungalow to countryside on the outskirts of Penryn and Falmouth, with glimpses of the Fal Estuary.

Being so beautifully presented, this property will undoubtedly prove of immense appeal to a wide range of prospective purchasers and therefore we, the vendor's Sole Agents, unhesitatingly recommend an immediate and early viewing appointment.

The Location - Built, we believe, approximately twenty five years ago, Summerheath is a small, select, residential development, close to the centre of the village of Mabe Burnthouse. Nearby, there is a well regarded county primary school and active village hall, and within the village centre there is a pub, village stores, hairdressers and highly regular bus service to Penryn, Falmouth and other neighbouring towns including Helston, Redruth and Truro.

An Asda superstore is approximately half a mile distant, 'at the foot of the hill'; Penryn Sports College and the university campus at Tremough are approximately one mile distant, and the nearby port of Falmouth, with its sandy beaches and sub-tropical gardens, provides a full range of shopping, commercial and leisure amenities.
