Description

A stunning, detached, individual ‘Eco-home’ on the outskirts of the highly sought-after and extremely well served creekside village of Mylor Bridge, set within exquisite grounds of approximately 3.5 acres including formal gardens, lakes and woodland.

A unique yet highly convenient location.

The Location - ‘Chy Lyn’ is situated on a country lane, on the western edge of Mylor Bridge. This village is, undoubtedly, one of the most sought-after locations anywhere along the south coast of Cornwall, by virtue of its creekside position, proximity to the favoured towns of Falmouth and Truro, short driving distance to Mylor Yacht Harbour – the county’s pre-eminent boating location, and its unrivalled amenities, all of which are within just a few minutes’ walk away. These include a highly regarded primary school, church, hairdressers, newsagents, general stores, public house, butchers, fishmongers, doctors surgery, regular bus service, active community hall, and various sports clubs.

A beautiful walk along the northern bank of Mylor Creek leads to Greatwood, the shoreline of the Carrick Roads and, beyond, to Restronguet Passage, home of The Pandora Inn. Sailing and water sports facilities abound in the area with moorings available on Mylor Creek upon application, and Mylor Yacht Harbour providing full pontoon, laying-up and maintenance facilities, thus providing ease of access onto what are widely regarded as the country’s finest day-sailing waters – the Fal Estuary with its creeks, sheltered Falmouth Bay and the Helford River etc.

The Property - Constructed c. 2012 to a striking ‘Eco-home’ design, ‘Chy Lyn’ provides light, well proportioned and versatile four/five bedroom accommodation, reverse-level, to provide what is an exceptional, open-plan, first floor living area, the full breadth of the house, fully glazed along the southern elevation, with clearly designated lounge, dining and kitchen areas, all of which overlook the beautiful lakes, gardens and grounds.

High levels of insulation combined with a water source heat pump and supplementary solar panelling (which produces a Feed In Tariff of approximately £2,500 pa) provide low running costs to a home which is also naturally warm when the sun is lower in the winter months, and slightly more shaded in the summer.

Throughout, there are many high quality features including oak flooring, oak staircase with glazed balustrading, double height reception hall, internal lift to provide ease of access to the first floor if required, oak internal doors with matching architraves and skirtings, inset downlighting, under-floor heating with individual thermostatic controls, fully double glazed windows and doors, tasteful white sanitary ware with complementary tiling, wired-in Sonos sound system, and air recirculatory system.

The current owners, a retired couple, utilise two of the ground floor double bedrooms as ‘his and her’ studies, yet the house is equally suitable for a growing family, wanting to live in one of Cornwall’s finest village locations.

The Gardens And Grounds - Wow! – the beautifully tended, extensive and well enclosed gravelled forecourt, which provides ample parking for numerous vehicles in addition to a double car port with garage and workshop, is an impressive introduction to ‘Chy Lyn’, but gives no indication of the extent and beauty of the remarkable gardens on the southern side of the house across which all main rooms and broad first floor balcony overlook.

There are formal lawned areas with paved and gravelled terraces and patios and, then, two extensive lakes with circular pathways surrounding, bordered by beautifully stocked shrubberies. A fast flowing stream bisects the grounds, the western side of which are laid mainly to natural wet woodland, which border open farmland in the ownership of the Enys Estate.

In all, these gardens and grounds extend to approximately three and a half acres or thereabouts.

Innumerable specimen trees and plants including camellias, hydrangeas, azaleas, bamboo, banana and rhododendrons etc, festoon the gardens to create what is a magical and truly unique environment.
