This beautiful 4/5 bedroom family home enjoys a spacious and private plot and has recently undergone a full transformation and stunning renovation leaving no work for the new owner. MUST VIEW


With no stone left unturned, the current owner has completed a quite stunning renovation. Every room has been subject to a practical and aesthetic improvement with an excellent eye for detail and style. Clever structural alterations have created extra accommodation, open plan living and increased the sense of light throughout.

The spacious entrance hall is light and open, and features like the dark grey vertical radiator set the tone for the contemporary and stylish fittings evident in all aspects of this home. There are two good sized double bedrooms on the ground floor, the one to the front with beautiful exposed hard wood flooring and that to the rear with built in wardrobes and country views. The potential third ground floor bedroom offers excellent versatility to be used as a study or hobby room.

The homes contemporary style is pleasantly balanced by the warm and comfortable feel of the living room which enjoys great proportions, sliding doors to the level rear garden and stylish décor.

The kitchen/diner is arguably the greatest accomplishment of the renovation and the show piece of the home. Knocking through two dark small rooms creates a wonderful open plan arrangement reaching the depth of the property achieving a beautiful feeling of space, increasing the light and promoting the use of a sociable area in what is now a substantial family home.

This cleverly designed dual aspect kitchen provides a vast amount of polished grey base cabinetry and deep drawers negating the need for wall units. This enhances the sleek minimalistic style created by modern colour scheme, small blasts of colour in glass splashbacks and a stunning white granite worktop. A matching peninsula offers further worktop space and breakfast bar. The space is further realised thanks to the large adjoining utility room housing all white goods and providing outside access.

The family bathroom is well-equipped with lustrous sanitaryware including a large bath with shower over and glass wash hand basin, all with sleek polished fittings. This is beautifully complimented by fully tiled floor and walls in subtle tones and designs.

An excellent loft conversion has transformed this once fairly typically designed bungalow into a generously sized 4/5 bedroom family home. The creation of two additional and now principle bedrooms, offers substantial space, eaves storage and Velux windows provide beautiful light whilst capturing gorgeous far reaching country views. The master en-suite enjoys a magnificent double shower and tasteful brick effect floor and wall tilling.


This large plot offers privacy and ample space to the front and rear. The lawn adjacent to the drive offers great scope for increased parking and garage (subject to planning permission) whilst the rear garden is laid mostly to lawn, with a central patio, a relative blank canvass for those keen creative gardeners.


The property is connected to mains gas, electric and water with drainage to a private septic tank. Council Tax Band – C


The property occupies an enviable position with level access to the heart of Carnon Downs which has long been regarded as one of the most sought-after villages in central Cornwall. There are an excellent range of local facilities including health centre/surgery, dental practice, local post office, stores and garden centre. There is a fantastic local community whilst the brilliant public transport links and proximity to main towns make it clear why so many wish to call Carnon Downs home.

Four miles to the north is the Cathedral City of Truro offering a first-class range of shopping facilities, public and private sector schooling and a main line railway station. To the south lies the University town of Falmouth and running between the two are the superb sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, very accessible being around three miles away, as is the slipway at Loe Beach. The surrounding countryside is exquisitely beautiful whilst it is ideally located for access to both the north and south coasts of the County.


From Truro, follow the A39 towards Falmouth for approx. 3.5 miles and take the first exit onto Gig Lane. Follow the road for approx. a quarter of a mile and our for-sale board will be visible on your right.
