Full description

On highly sought-after Budock Vean Lane, between the day-sailing waters of the Helford River and picturesque Port Navas Creek, a detached, individual house, substantially extended and improved, set in delightful gardens and grounds of approximately 1 acre, including half an acre of delightful woodland; enjoying beautiful views over its own garden and grounds to Anna Maria Creek and miles of surrounding unspoilt countryside.

The Property - Built, we understand, in the 1950's, 'Saffrons' is a detached, individual home, substantially extended and improved by the present owners to provide extremely versatile and well appointed four/five-bedroomed accommodation, in one of the county's most highly regarded and sought-after locations.

Enjoying a broad frontage to this private road, and access through the grounds of the nearby Budock Vean Hotel to Perran Cove and Bar Beach, the property sits 'centrally' within beautifully planted formal gardens of approximately half an acre, beyond which there is a delightful area of sloping woodland with swathes of spring bulbs under a picturesque canopy of mature trees. A forecourt provides ample parking in addition to a detached block-built garage, to the rear of which there is a greenhouse, garden store and useful cellar storage area. To the rear of the house, where the main garden area lies, there is a broad, tiered, semi-circular terrace, directly accessed from the living accommodation, enjoying a high degree of sunshine and privacy, together with beautiful views over the gardens and grounds to Anna Maria Creek and unspoilt countryside beyond.

Benefiting from oil fired central heating and double glazing, the accommodation briefly comprises: an entrance hall leading to the inner hall, downstairs cloakroom/WC, large L-shaped triple aspect lounge with picture windows enjoying the views, separate dining room, adaptable sun room and large family sized kitchen/breakfast room with utility room off. Also to the ground floor, there is a study (or single bedroom if preferred), guests bedroom with en-suite facilities, and magnificent master bedroom suite with walk-in dressing cupboard and private en-suite bathroom with five-piece suite including a separate shower cubicle. Upstairs, there are two further bedrooms, both of which also enjoy the beautiful views, and a further shower room/WC, off which there is an extensive walk-in loft storage area.

In all, a beautiful individual home which, undoubtedly, will prove of immense appeal to family and early retirement purchasers alike.

The Location - Budock Vean Lane is one of south Cornwall's most revered locations, being an exclusive private road of detached individual properties, situated on a promontory, between picturesque Port Navas and Anna Maria Creeks, and the sheltered day-sailing waters of the Helford River, Falmouth Bay and nearby Fal Estuary. The nearby hotel provides excellent leisure amenities including tennis courts, swimming pool and eighteen-hole golf course. 'Saffrons', we understand, enjoys access through the hotel grounds to the creek.

The nearby village of Mawnan Smith, just one and a half miles distant, provides excellent day-to-day amenities including a highly regarded county primary school, church, thatched public house, restaurant, hairdressers, doctors surgery, active village hall, garage, convenience stores with sub-post office, craft stores and regular bus service to Falmouth - five miles distant - just voted 'The best place to live in the UK' by the readers of The Sunday Times in March 2017.

Nearby Helford Passage is home to The Ferryboat Inn, and between Budock Vean and Mawnan Smith are the sub-tropical National Trust gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. Beautiful clifftop walks along the South West Coast Path lead to the sandy bathing beach of Maenporth; Falmouth is an approximate fifteen minute drive away, and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre, can be reached within half an hour.
