A spacious 3 bedroomed detached family home in need of cosmetic improvement which comes with added benefit of planning permission for a first-floor extension. A wonderful village location and a MUST VIEW.


We are delighted to offer a fantastic opportunity to acquire a spacious 3-bedroom detached home commanding a beautiful quarter of an acre plot in the highly sought-after village of Carnon Downs.

The property would benefit from modernisation throughout, providing buyers the freedom to really put their own stamp on the property. For those wanting a slightly larger home, there is the benefit of outline planning permission (PA19/06953) for a first-floor extension to add a master en-suite bedroom which would enjoy fabulous distant rural views. Utilising the planning permission to create a fourth bedroom with an en-suite would transform this spacious 3 bed into a substantial, well balanced 4-bedroom family home.

The front is approached via a private entrance road serving two other properties, setting this home quietly back off the road. There is parking for 2-3 vehicles on the drive to the front of the garage and to the side is an enclosed lawned garden with mature borders providing excellent privacy.

A covered entrance opens to an inner hallway with useful storage, a ground floor w/c and leads onto the dinning room and lounge. These two rooms are separated be a glazed partition allowing fantastic natural light to flood through the property. With a picture window to the front and glazed side door, the well-proportioned lounge enjoys a triple aspect with the borrowed light enhancing the sense of space already appreciated by this generous room.

To the rear of the property is a central dining room which has sliding doors to the garden and connects the snug/office to one end and the fitted kitchen to the other. The snug is a sweet dual aspect room which enjoys a lovely wood burner with slate hearth. The kitchen overlooks the beautiful rear garden and leads onto the utility and boiler room which conveniently connects to the garage. The first-floor accommodation comprises two double bedrooms and a single with a family shower room.

The rear garden enjoys a beautiful array of established trees and mature shrubs offering bursts of colour throughout the year and wonderfully peaceful outside space for a family. There is a greenhouse and sizeable workshop with power and lighting towards the bottom of the garden which benefits from vehicular access from Gig Lane. The size, position and access provide the opportunity for a building plot (subject to the necessary planning permission).


The property is connected to mains gas, electric, water and drainage.


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 third exit towards Carnon Downs then the first exit of the next mini roundabout. After a few hundred yards, there is a small turning on your left, immediately opposite the T-unction for The Forge. Take that left turn and the property is the first on the left.
