Property description

Tenure: Freehold

We are delighted to offer as our client's sole agents, this highly individual, older style three bedroom detached bungalow which is set in a convenient and prominent location just off the main A394 Falmouth to Helston road with good access to local amenities, surrounding towns and the University Campus at Tremough.

Our clients have enjoyed the past twenty years in residence here and this shows with well proportioned and versatile accommodation which is designed to meet the needs of a growing family, who will enjoy plenty of space both inside the bungalow and in the generous gardens and outside areas.

The property is well presented and maintained and this will appeal to a buyer who would want to move into their new home and start living from day one, without having to carry out any works or decoration.

Plenty of features await the new lucky owners, including oil fired central heating by radiators, upvc double glazed windows, external doors and conservatory, a focal point granite fireplace with wood burning stove in the lounge, fitted kitchen/breakfast room with oven and hob, two bathrooms, fitted carpets and hard wearing solid flooring throughout.

The accommodation includes a covered southerly facing porch with new non-slip resin base and front door leading to an entrance vestibule, long entrance hall which feeds all the principal rooms, a lounge with fireplace and staircase to a useful attic space which has a second bathroom/wc and eaves storage, a separate dining room which leads into the conservatory overlooking the gardens, a generous fitted kitchen/breakfast room in light oak, a utility room, cloak/wc, three double bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate shower in white.

Outside offers a gated and secure large gravel driveway with ample parking for many vehicles and this leads through high solid timber gates into an extensive red herringbone brick driveway, which provides even further space for vehicles but would ideally house a boat, motor home or a caravan. There is a detached garage and an adjacent workroom (used as a dog grooming parlour) which could easily revert back into its original use as a second garage. There are level patio and lawns at the rear of the bungalow and a number of timber outbuildings which are included in the sale.

The bungalow is set close to a petrol station and convenience store in one direction and Rame Post Office and Stores in the other, with the closest towns being Penryn and Falmouth and Helston and the Lizard peninsula to the west. The combined university campus at Tremough is within a short drive and the local bus service will connect you to the surrounding area.

An early viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
