Orchard Lane, Helford


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Nestled on the valley side and situated in an elevated position above the picturesque Helford Village, the property enjoys some spectacular panoramic views out across the Helford Estuary. Configured to offer a maximum of four bedrooms, the property has without doubt considerable potential in terms of extending, a possible building plot in the garden or indeed a complete 'grand designs' transformation (all of course subject to the necessary planning requisites). Set on a plot of approximately two thirds of an acre, the property is located close to the centre of Helford Village which is one of Cornwall's most sought after creek side areas being renowned for its tranquility with thatched and slate roof cottages clustered around the tidal creek heading from the main river which is well known for it's sailing waters and outstanding natural beauty! Within the village there is a shop, sailing club and the Shipwright's Arms sits beside the waters edge. The ancient market town of Helston is just ten miles away with a full range of national supermarkets and shops. There is a primary school in the nearby village of Manaccan and the village of St Keverne offers a wider range of amenities such as convenience store, primary school, medical centre and butchers. Such properties to purchase in this highly sought after village are rare indeed, so as sole selling agents our highest recommendation is for your earliest appointment to view.
