  • Bedrooms: 4
A highly individual four bedroom detached residence which gently nestles into this very special sylvan valley setting in superb gardens and woodland walks of some four acres or thereabouts (awaiting confirmation) and within a short stroll of the tidal creek and foreshore on the beautiful Helford River.

The property comes to the market for the first time in over twenty-five years, since our client took residence here and during that time has created a home and grounds and care for the environment in a perfect setting with privacy and seclusion.

The house sits in an elevated location, approached by steps from the driveway which lead to an extensive paved terrace that faces in a south-easterly direction across to the woodlands. The property has distinctive elevations clad in Virginia Creeper during the autumn months, complimented by UPVC double glazing to the front aspect and warmed by oil fired central heating.

The spacious accommodation includes on the ground floor, an entrance porch, reception hall, lounge, dining room, conservatory, fitted dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room, a study, two double bedrooms (one en-suite), family bathroom/wc and a useful utility area and covered porch to the rear. The staircase leads to the first floor with two further double bedrooms enjoying fine views and a shower/wc combined.

Upalong is well presented by our client and offers so much potential for new owners to customise and refresh the building to their own particular taste and requirements, although it has crossed our minds that someone may decide to replace the existing structure with a more modern home, subject to planning permission and building regulation approval.

From the village centre, the driveway leads from the lane into a parking and turning area and a large double garage/workshop which is incorporated under the terracing. A succession of pathways takes you through these amazing, special grounds with beautiful woodland walks, seating areas and on the far side, arboretum which will continue to be an ongoing project for the lucky new owners who will share the same love of nature and the environment.

This delightful creekside village is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty which has the same status and protection as a national park and is steeped in local history. The quayside and Helford River has played an important part over the years for local stone mined from the quarries in Constantine, when, in the 1800's the stone was shipped further afield. The famous Port Navas Yacht Club was founded in 1958 and is an integral part of this picturesque village and this has a selection of pontoon berths, creek moorings and beach moorings plus storage for small craft. The yacht club has a restaurant and bar which residents consider to be their 'local'. The well renowned Trengilly Wartha Inn is popular for its food and fine ales and is just a short drive away.

Beautiful country walks and cycle routes abound throughout the area. The neighbouring villages of Constantine and Mawnan Smith provide good everyday facilities and primary schooling, whilst the bustling harbour town of Falmouth is a 15-20 minute drive away.

As our clients sole agents, we thoroughly recommend a personal viewing to appreciate this fine property and location.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

From the moment you enter the driveway, you will have a sense of just how much privacy and seclusion this special location provides to our client. The driveway leads into a gravelled parking and turning area in front of the double garage and from here a staircase takes you up to a delightful paved sun terrace on two levels which command splendid views across to the valley and woodland opposite. At any time of day, this is a great area to relax with your family and friends whether it be alfresco dining, evening drinks or just a simple pot of tea in the afternoon.

Very few homeowners have the opportunity to own their own 'nature reserve' where you can appreciate such beautiful woodland walks through these wonderful grounds. A gentle stream meanders down to the final wooden bridge with Gunnera beds on either side. The furthest part of the garden from the house takes you to a partially finished arboretum which can continue as a project for anyone wishing to continue our client's work.

A delightful grassed area has a garden bench where one can sit in peace and quite to enjoy the view. To the left-hand side of the house sits a more formal garden area with lawns and a colourful rockery garden which has dry stone retaining walls and this continues to a poly tunnel for propagation. On the return side of the house several pathways take you to a terraced garden with two greenhouses and wooden animal hutches in the top corner and finally, a descending gravel pathway leads back to the driveway and red brick steps return you to the terrace in front of the house. It is impossible to portray such a fine garden in print, only a personal visit to the property will allow you to appreciate everything the house and garden has to offer.
