Set in an exquisite location and occupying a generous plot with well tended, mature level gardens, on this exclusive private road, within walking distance of the tree lined Helford River. An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a 3 double bedroom detached bungalow with superb views to the front elevation over Budock Vean Golf Course and, to the rear, towards the mouth of the Helford River. To be offered with immediate vacant possession available and the added benefit of no onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

'Briar Lodge' occupies, unquestionably, one of the best plots on this exclusive private road, benefiting from superb views over Budock Vean Golf Course to the front elevation, and views toward the mouth of the Helford River from the rear. The property comprises three double bedrooms, a substantial two-tier living/dining room with enclosed snug, garden-facing conservatory, kitchen/breakfast room, and two family bathrooms.

Externally, level front gardens are well bordered, stocked and immaculately cared for, whilst a sweeping driveway connects the property to 'the fairway'. A double garage is located on the driveway, with a connecting pathway to the rear gardens. The rear gardens are, once again, immaculately stocked and of a level gradient, whilst throughout, the gardens benefit from views towards the mouth of the Helford River.

Another quirk of 'Briar Lodge' is the fact that it owns two gateways, providing direct access onto Budock Vean Golf Course.
