The property is situated in the sought after village of Gweek, in an Area of Great Landscape Value, at the head of The Helford River and close to spectacular stretches of coastline and picturesque creeks. Gweek is a thriving village which sits at the headwater and tidal limits of the river and has a Premier Store Post Office, the Black Swan Inn, a village hall, church and boatyard together with the National Seal Sanctuary. There are many beautiful walks to be enjoyed within the immediate area particularly along the South West Coast Path from the Helford River towards Falmouth or east and then south towards the Lizard.

There is excellent sailing close by from the picturesque Helford River with its sheltered wooded creeks. The nearby villages of Constantine and Mawgan have further local amenities with more extensive facilities being available in the ancient market town of Helston including supermarkets, schools, retail, health, leisure and business services. The City of Truro, the administration centre for Cornwall, is about 16 miles distant and provides an excellent range of schools, college, hospitals, retail and business services, leisure and sports clubs, golf clubs, mainline railway station to London Paddington.

The Helford River, Gweek and the Lizard Peninsula are all within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Gweek Nurseries is situated on the outskirts of the village at the end of a private lane and enjoying an attractive secluded setting away from traffic. The area is highly favoured by water sports enthusiasts with the sailing waters of the Falmouth Bay, the River Fal and the Carrick Roads close at hand. There are golf courses at Budock Vean, Mullion and Falmouth. RNAS Culdrose is just over 3 miles distant and the expanding campus at Tremough, Penryn, part of the Combined University of Cornwall is some 8 miles distant. The popular harbour town of Falmouth, with its excellent maritime facilities and beaches is 10 miles distant.

The present vendor took over the former flower farm in 1979 and then over the years greatly altered, extended and improved the business, however due to retirement the nursery is now closed.

The bungalow, partly stone faced and built in the early 1980's for the present vendor, provides spacious flexible family accommodation with oil fired central heating and double glazing - except the conservatory/sun lounge - in a mature garden with well-established shrubs, trees and plants. The property is larger than it appears and most certainly requires a detailed viewing to fully appreciate all that it has to offer.

The comfortable accommodation briefly comprises a light sunny conservatory/sun lounge, sitting room with wood burner, kitchen and breakfast room with attractive views, utility room, two shower rooms (one recently refurbished completely), separate wc and three ground floor bedrooms of good size. At first floor level there are two further bedrooms, a living room and a separate shower room/wc.

The nursery buildings and glasshouses have easy access from the gated entrance and large concrete parking/turning area. On the lower side of the parking area there is a useful 60' store shed and a concrete drive to the side of the garden leads to the rear of the bungalow and a detached 30' garage with store shed and lean-to log store.
There is a sheltered grass meadow to the rear of the bungalow, flanked by trees and a separate track entrance to the two paddocks. On the western boundary of the land there is an established wooded area planted with trees etc.
