Fantastic location – Acorns is a spacious 4 bedroom detached bungalow that holds a wonderful elevated rural position looking immediately out onto rolling fields with beautiful views of the Falmouth Bay in the distance.

Surprisingly spacious yet low maintenance, this 4 bedroom single storey home is very well presented. Some cosmetic modernisation could benefit the property, but having been well cared for and updated with a modern kitchen and bathrooms and uPVC double glazing throughout you could comfortably move right in.

“It was the tranquillity, privacy and views that is the draw to Acorns and yet being close to the local amenities and glorious walks at nearby beaches made it the perfect idyll for many happy years and memories.”

An arched porch opens to an entrance vestibule, leading into a fantastic triple aspect, 26’ living room with double doors opening to the side garden of a south westerly aspect. The current owners rebuilt and extended what was the garage to create this light and spacious room that works well in its current use as a living/dining room.

There is a large hallway off the lounge which offers further outside access. To the other side of the hall is a fully tiled shower room with built in, back to wall toilet and basin vanity unit and port hole styled window to the front.

This hall also leads into the kitchen breakfast room. A further bright and open plan room benefitting from a U-shaped kitchen with matching cabinetry, two useful corner carousels, built in fridge and freezer and a mid-height Lamorna electric fan oven. There are part tiled walls on two sides serving well as a splash back for the gas hob with a pull out extractor over. Laminate flooring continues from the kitchen through to the breakfast area. The breakfast area, like the kitchen, also benefits from a large window to the front. Currently with corner seating, this is a great space for a kitchen table and chairs.

Beyond the kitchen/breakfast room is a second large hallway. A vestibule from this hall offers a second access to the front of the property. Directly across the hall is the master bedroom. Prior to the extension works, this was the properties main living room so makes a good double, with a large window to the front and room for wardrobes.

There are two further double bedrooms to the rear of the property, both of similar size, one of which benefits from a built in wardrobe. A fourth bedroom, also suitable as a double would make a very useful hobby room come office.

The family bathroom is fully tiled and well equipped with a large corner bath with electric shower over. There is also a vanity unit housing a toilet with concealed cistern, basin and bidet.

Beautiful and well stocked gardens to the front and side with a selection of mature rhododendron’s and small trees. You can appreciate the rural and sea views from the lawn and seating area to the front or bask in the sheltered sun trap of the south west facing garden to the side laid mainly to lawn. There is a bricked paved path around the back and side of the property providing access to a planted area, green house and tool sheds to the rear with the oil tank tucked away to the side.

Detached single garage with electric up and over door. Smart brick paved parking area to the front suitable for 4 cars.
