This classically styled home sits centrally within manicured lawned gardens within walking distance of the centre of the village.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a family bathroom. Gardens wrap around the home, with privacy provided by hedged boundaries. There is an adjoining single garage and double driveway.

Entering the home, the entrance hall leads to the large, dual aspect reception room with a feature fireplace, windows to the front and double French doors opening to the rear garden. To the opposite side of the hall is a good sized study which could act as a fifth bedroom. To the rear of the house is the dining room which has a window overlooking the rear garden and is large enough for a table for six of eight. From here you enter the kitchen which was recently (2022) remodelled with an attractive range of navy shaker style cabinetry with a quartz worktop. There is plenty of storage in addition to the inbuilt fridge/freezer, double AEG ovens, an AEG induction hob with an inset extractor over, a dishwasher and under cabinetry LED lighting. A one and a half bowl stainless steel sink with a mixer tap over sits below a large window looking out over the vegetable garden. Just beyond the kitchen is a w/c and a door leading to the adjoining garage which has power and lighting.

Heading up the centrally positioned staircase, there is a nice sized landing which leads first to the largest of the double bedrooms and the family bathroom. To the other side of the landing are the other three bedrooms. Bedroom two has a good sized walk in wardrobe and so is currently used as the master bedroom.

Outside a the front garden gate leads to a formal tree lined garden path towards the front door. On either side is a level lawned garden which is bounded by a well-manicured tall hedge creating privacy and a fence between the neighbouring property. Wrapping around the house there is a vegetable garden with raised beds and gravel paths for low maintenance. To the rear of the house is a private lawned garden which is fully fenced and features mature plants and trees and a patio area for al fresco dining.

This is a superb home in a sought after village and a viewing is highly recommended.


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.


The property is connected to mains gas, electric, water and drainage (new boiler in 2022)
