Situated close to the edge of this ever-popular, well served, North Helford Area village, a stunning, detached, 3-storey home providing immaculate, faultlessly presented and extremely versatile 6 bedroom, 3 bath/shower room accommodation, superbly appointed throughout and benefiting from ample parking for numerous vehicles, a detached garage, attractively landscaped gardens and, from the rear, views over the outskirts of the village to countryside beyond.

THE PROPERTY

Dating, we understand, from the 1950's, 'Melody' was originally a modest bungalow which the present owners have dramatically extended and remodelled to, now, provide a magnificent three-storey family home, appointed and presented to the highest standards throughout.

Benefiting from full double glazing, oil fired central heating, attractive floor coverings, meticulous decoration, hardwood internal doors, coved ceilings and inset down-lighters throughout, the accommodation is ideal for large families and early retirement purchasers alike, with the lower ground floor ideally lending itself for use as a 'self-contained' flat/annexe, ideal for a dependent relative or source of letting income, etc.

To the front of the property, there is a red brick forecourt which provides off-road parking for three vehicles, together with direct, level access into the accommodation, with the rear gardens being a particular feature, having been extensively landscaped with granite retaining walls, paved terracing, large level lawn, and additional gravelled parking area, suitable for numerous additional vehicles, in addition to which there is a detached block-built garage.

In all, an exceptional village home, which is offered for sale for the first time in over seventeen years, with the additional benefit of immediate vacant possession and no onward chain.
