Full description

LARGE HOUSE PLUS SELF-CONTAINED FLAT. An immensely intriguing, substantial and highly versatile 5/6-bedroomed detached house, totaling 2400ft² of accommodation, including a self-contained annexe with independent access (alternatively a third floor of the main accommodation) with driveway parking for 4 cars and garage with integral access. The Japanese-style lightly wooded garden with foot bridge, lower pond and stream, is quite an appeal and particularly unique.

The Property - Located within this convenient and popular cul-de-sac in the St Gluvias area of Penryn, a large detached family home, constructed we believe circa 1990, offering highly adaptable, three reception roomed, four/five-bedroomed accommodation within the main accommodation, with internal and external access to the lower ground floor, providing a further two/three rooms, currently providing letting income for our client of £600 per month. A lower ground floor store adjacent provides great scope for conversion and therefore enlargement of the self-contained flat into a two or possibly three-bedroomed unit.

18 Old Well Gardens is a large, modern, detached family home, benefiting from recent replacement uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating with separate Worcester boilers for the main house and annexe. The main accommodation is well equipped and features a huge en-suite bath/shower room to the main bedroom, three further first floor bedrooms, and potential to utilise the third reception room as a bedroom also, depending on requirements.

Enjoying a much larger than average garden to the rear which features a quite amazing foot bridge connecting the two main areas with a lower stream and pond retained with attractive stone walling on either side.

The Location - Old Well Gardens is located on the northern fringe of the St Gluvias area of Penryn, an approximate five/ten minute walk from the town centre, approximately three miles from the port of Falmouth, nine miles from the cathedral city of Truro and four miles from the sailing haven of Flushing, and superb boating amenities at Mylor Yacht Harbour.

The ancient borough town of Penryn is home, at Tremough, to the expanding university of Cornwall which will, no doubt, continue to benefit from high levels of investment in the area. Bus and rail services from Penryn lead to both Falmouth and Truro, from where there is a direct rail link to London (Paddington). Regular domestic flights from Newquay Airport (approximately forty minutes) provide easy and rapid access out of the county, with the duchy's superb range of leisure amenities all within easy reach, including safe, sandy south coast beaches, cliff and creekside walks, National Maritime Museum at Falmouth, Tate Gallery at St Ives, Hall for Cornwall in Truro, Eden Project near St Austell and numerous golf courses etc.
