Full description

Occupying an extremely large plot on this highly favoured, private, residential road close to the beautiful Helford River, a detached individual bungalow, providing versatile 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom accommodation, now benefiting from Outline Planning Permission for demolition of the existing dwelling and erection of 2 substantial new houses, granted 20 December 2017, Cornwall Council Application Reference: PA17/10016.

The Property - Dating, we understand, from the 1920's, 'Trewennack' is a broad, highly intriguing, single-storey residence, occupying a particularly good sized plot on this highly sought-after private road of substantial individual properties, close to the beautiful Helford River and within approximately one mile of the extremely well served village of Mawnan Smith.

Set within its own delightful and extremely well stocked gardens and grounds, which extend in total to approximately one acre, the existing dwelling has previously been extended to provide adaptable accommodation which some prospective purchasers may wish to improve and further develop, bearing in mind consent formerly existed for a loft conversion and the recently obtained consent for two dwellings should provide great scope for just one dwelling if preferred.

The current accommodation benefits from oil fired central heating, replacement double glazing and beautiful views over the gardens and through the trees to Anna Maria Creek, on the upper reaches of Port Navas Creek, and beyond, to miles of rolling unspoilt countryside.

Extensive parking is already provided, together with a detached garage and, to the rear of the property, the main garden areas comprise a broad terrace, shaped lawns, well stocked borders, former kitchen garden and gates onto an additional area of woodland, the ownership of which we understand extends almost to the lane below.

Planning Permission - On 20 December 2017, Cornwall Council granted Outline Planning Permission for the demolition of the existing dwelling and erection of two detached new houses - Application Number: PA17/10016 (copy attached).

Consequently, the opportunity now exists for a developer or building company to create two substantial new dwellings in this, one of south Cornwall's most sought-after and highly regarded locations. Alternatively, a private purchaser may wish to build their own 'grand design' on one plot, and sell the other to a like-minded buyer, bearing in mind it is not the executor's intention to sell the plots individually at this stage.

The Location - Budock Vean Lane is a private road occupying a promontory between Helford Passage on the Helford River, and Porth Navas Creek. Consequently, the picturesque day-sailing waters of the Helford River, Falmouth Bay, and nearby Fal Estuary, are all 'on the doorstep', with moorings available on the Helford River on application from The Duchy. Residents of Budock Vean Lane enjoy access through the grounds of nearby Budock Vean Hotel to the creek, as well as to the hotel's excellent leisure amenities which include a golf course, swimming pool and tennis courts etc. Within half a mile are the beautiful sub-tropical gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan, a short distance after which is the village of Mawnan Smith, whose excellent day-to-day amenities include a thatched public house (The Red Lion Inn), restaurant, cafe, electrical store, church, doctors surgery, hairdressers, convenience stores and garage.

The port of Falmouth is approximately six miles distant and has just been voted by the readers of The Sunday Times as 'the best place to live in the United Kingdom'. Falmouth's excellent range of shopping, commercial and leisure amenities provide for most needs, with the cathedral city of Truro, the county's legal, administrative, health and educational centre, being an approximate thirty minute drive away.
