Full description

Enjoying a rural position within the highly sought-after Mylor peninsula, perfectly positioned close to the extremely well served creekside village of Mylor Bridge, port of Falmouth and cathedral city of Truro, a semi-detached cottage providing 2 double bedroomed, 2 reception and 2 bath/shower roomed accommodation, with all rooms enjoying delightful views over the gardens to surrounding countryside, with detached garage, car port and further parking and nearby level paddock with stable and polytunnel - viewing highly recommended.

The Property - For sale for the first time in over thirty five years, 'Fairview' enjoys a beautiful rural position on the Mylor Peninsula, yet within a few minutes' drive of the particularly well served creekside village of Mylor Bridge and nearby town of Penryn.

Built in 1825 of granite block to the ground floor and cob to the first floor, and extended in the early 1970's, 'Fairview' provides two double bedroomed, two reception and two bath/shower roomed accommodation with versatile study/utility, with all rooms enjoying an attractive outlook over the beautifully stocked and tended front garden and surrounding countryside, part of the adjoining Enys Estate. The front gardens are a particular feature, beautifully stocked and mature providing a haven for the local wildlife and various sitting-out terraces to enjoy the peace and view. Accessed off a no-through country lane, leading to two other properties only, 'Fairview' benefits from a detached garage, car port and hardstanding for two or three cars with access along a woodland path to an enclosed paddock with small stable and polytunnel.

All-in-all, a combination of property, land and location that is increasingly rare to find, especially in today's market and, it is therefore without hesitation, that as the vendor's Sole Agent's, an early viewing appointment is recommended.

The Location - 'Fairview' enjoys a high degree of peace with established and mature garden and separate paddock, adjoining beautiful and picturesque countryside of the neighbouring Enys Estate.

The extremely well served village of Mylor Bridge is approximately two miles distant where excellent facilities include general stores, news agents, sub post office, fish mongers, butchers, community hall, hairdressers, dentist, doctors surgery, public house, highly regarded county primary school, bus service and wide variety of clubs and society.

Exceptional sailing facitiles are just a few minutes' drive away at Restronguet Passage, home of the famous Pandora Inn, Mylor boatyard and harbour, the county's pre-eminent boating location, with direct access onto the day-sailing waters of the Fal Estuary (Carrick Roads), considered by many to be perhaps the best in the country.

The cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre is approximately eight miles distant, the port of Falmouth being within an approximate 5 miles, near to which is the expanding university campus at Tremough, as well as safe sandy beaches and many leisure amenities including National Maritime Museum and wide variety of restaurants and harbourside bars.
