Full description

A detached individual chalet-style house, occupying a prominent corner position in this convenient location between Falmouth and Helston, in need of general refurbishment, but offering well proportioned, 3 double bedroomed accommodation with far-reaching views, level gardens, planning permission for off-road parking, and immediate vacant possession with no onward chain.

The Property - Built, we understand, in the late 1960's, 'Linda Lea' is a detached, individual chalet-style house, occupying a prominent corner position in the village of Longdowns, conveniently situated for the surrounding towns of Falmouth, Penryn, Helston, Redruth and Truro.

In need of general refurbishment throughout, the property provides an ideal 'project' suitable for first time buyers, young families, investors and retirement purchasers alike. Views are enjoyed from the southern elevation over miles of rolling countryside to Falmouth Bay in the distance; level lawned gardens extend to the front and side of the property, and planning permission allows for the creation of off-road parking for several vehicles. Prospective purchasers should note the attached garage will need to be demolished by the new owner following completion as the owners will be constructing a detached new house on the eastern side, with independent access off the A394, and intend to redevelop the remaining land to the northern side, adjacent to Glenmore Terrace.

The Location - 'Linda Lea' is situated immediately adjacent to the A394 and consequently enjoys ready access to Penryn, Falmouth and Helston, two, four and seven miles distant respectively. Nearby facilities include a garage, convenience stores and public house, with regular bus services bringing Redruth and Truro also within easy reach.
