THE LOCATION Together with Gillan Creek, Port Navas is the most seaward of the seven tributaries of the Helford River. This delightfully unspoilt village comprises a handful of stone cottages at the head of the creek, beside its own village hall and yacht club with pontoon berths and restaurant.
A small number of individual homes, some dating back centuries to the more recent, nestle along the northern and southern shores of the river.
Rosemullion is one such home, enjoying a truly enviable and slightly elevated spot just moments from the Creekside.
Port Navas lies between the popular villages of Mawnan Smith and Constantine, a short drive away, each providing a good range of facilities including local shops, primary school, church and pub. Falmouth's vibrant and thriving harbour town is close at hand with its comprehensive commercial and leisure facilities whilst the cathedral city of Truro is the administrative centre of Cornwall and offers good private schooling and a mainline rail link to London Paddington.
The Helford River is a very special place. Not only is it designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but also a site of Special Scientific Interest and Special Area of Conservation where, uniquely, major environmental groups and organisations including the National Trust come together to protect, monitor and develop the river and its surrounds. The Helford estuary is home to many deep water moorings, Helford River Sailing Club, the thatched Shipwrights pub on the south side of the river and the Ferry Boat Inn on the north side. This is an area particularly favoured by the sailing fraternity with excellent facilities not only at Port Navas creek but also in the Helford River and Falmouth Bay. There is a golf course close by at Budock Vean and another at Falmouth besides, breath-taking cliff-top walks and safe sandy beaches at Maenporth, Durgan, Swanpool, Falmouth - all within easy driving distance.
Communications to Cornwall have vastly improved over recent years with the A30 dual carriageway just north of Truro giving fast access to the M5 motorway at Exeter. Newquay airport provides regular shuttle flights to London Gatwick, Stanstead and many other European destinations. 

THE PROPERTY Rosemullion is an exceptional modern bungalow, set beside the creek within the most glorious landscaped garden where its slightly elevated south facing position presents a magical view over Port Navas Creek, towards the Helford River.
Originally built, we understand, in the 1960's the property was substantially remodelled and transformed about ten years ago, when it was bought by the current discerning owners. Since then Rosemullion has been thoroughly enjoyed and fine tuned without expense spared, to create the very special home it is today.
The interior is spacious and impeccably presented where large windows and glazed doors flood in light and all is enhanced by neutral colour schemes, solid oak engineered under heated floors and quality carpeting. A solid oak front door opens into a good sized reception hall with inner hall off, giving access to the bedroom accommodation.
The cavernous living room is a very impressive light and airy, open plan space with a striking high quality centrally positioned 'Bodart & Gonay' fireplace and virtually full width folding double glazed doors creating a fabulously easy flow onto the south, creek facing elevation, and fabulous large paved terrace. At the rear of the living room is an oak fitted kitchen with appliances and polished granite worktops, beside which is a utility and cloakroom/WC.
The ensuite master bedroom has a wide double glazed window overlooking the garden to Port Navas creek. There are three further bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) and a well appointed family bathroom.
Gardens have been landscaped and nurtured and are a very special feature of Rosemullion with areas of lawn, paved terracing with richly stocked flower and shrub beds and borders. A five bar gate leads onto the driveway which sweeps up through the garden with plenty of parking space and discreet access around to the rear and garage.
The property also enjoys a right of way down a nearby stepped pathway to a waterside quay in the most blissful of natural creekside settings.
