Full description

OFFERS INVITED - To be sold for the first time in approximately 50 years: an excellent opportunity to refurbish and personalise this substantial dormer-style 4 bedroom property or possibly redevelop the site, subject to necessary planning consents. Generous driveway parking and wrap-around gardens provide great scope to extend or possibly build an additional dwelling.

The Property - Requiring substantial modernisation or reconfiguration, and enjoying far-reaching views towards the Fal Estuary and Falmouth Bay in the distance, a sizeable detached bungalow with a partially converted first floor, and benefiting from large gardens to the front, side and rear with possibilities to build an additional property or simply extend further, yet still retaining generous outside space. Attached garaging and broad driveway parking for approximately four/five cars is accessible from a desirable cul-de-sac.

The Location - Located within a few minutes' walk of the centre of Mabe village where day-to-day amenities include a public house, village store and regular bus service to the port of Falmouth, approximately three miles distant. The expanding Tremough Campus, part of Exeter university in Penryn is within an approximate 10 minute walk. The neighbouring towns of Helston, Redruth and Truro are also close at hand, being within an approximate twenty minute drive; there are many beautiful rural, creekside and coastal walks close by, including around Argal Reservoir, along the banks of the nearby Helford River and the South West Coast Path. There are golf courses at Falmouth and Killiow, near Truro, and Falmouth in particular boasts a fine range of leisure amenities including numerous water sports clubs, many restaurants, the National Maritime Museum and safe sandy bathing beaches.
