Available on the market for the first time in over twenty five years, this striking, individual home, has to be viewed to fully appreciate the wonderful location and marvellous vistas it enjoys.
Seldom are rural views as expansive and elevated as those enjoyed from this residence. Whether enjoying a glass of wine at sunset on the decked terrace, or a cup of tea from the comfort of the master bedroom the outlook enjoyed by this property is truly special and is sure to appeal to discerning purchasers.
Internally, half vaulted ceilings, French doors and picture windows ensure that the residence is light and welcoming even on the darkest of days. An open plan kitchen and dining area provide a sociable space in which to cook and entertain, whilst the lounge is the perfect place to relax by the wood burning stove.
A real highlight of the property are the areas of decking to the side of the residence together with the decked balcony to the rear, all of which provide fabulous elevated viewpoints.
These are complemented by a lovely tiered garden to the rear which meanders down through expanses of lawn and specimen trees and shrubs towards the footpaths and woodlands of the Cober Valley.
In brief the accommodation comprises an open plan kitchen and dining room, a lounge, four bedrooms (master en-suite), a family bathroom, a utility room and a cloakroom. Outside there is a garage and parking, attractive upper and lower decked areas, a decked balcony and a large garden to the rear.
The property is particularly well suited for local schooling including the well regarded primary school at Parc Eglos and Helston Community College with its sixth form college. The property is also conveniently located for the town centre, and is on the town bus route.
Helston is regarded as the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula with its stunning feature coves, beaches and clifftop walks. The bustling market town provides facilities which include national stores, cinema, health centres, restaurants and there is a leisure centre with indoor heated pool. The property is particularly well sited for the Cober Valley with its beautiful riverside walks leading to the amenity area at the bottom of the town with its boating lake. This leads onwards to the Penrose Estate where walks can be enjoyed alongside Cornwall's largest natural freshwater lake and on to the sea.
