Occupying a quiet and convenient position, close to the centre of this well served and highly sought-after village, whose excellent day-to-day amenities are a short walk away, a semi-detached bungalow within an appealing corner plot, providing 3-bedroomed accommodation, enjoying far-reaching views towards Maenporth with an attached garage, driveway parking and surrounding, attractively stocked, secure and sunny gardens.

THE PROPERTY

A semi-detached bungalow tucked-away in the corner of a conveniently positioned cul-de-sac, enjoying far-reaching countryside views from the front, and benefiting from an attached garage, driveway parking, which could be enlarged if required, and surrounding level gardens, all within a short walk of Mawnan Smith's excellent day-to-day amenities.

Already benefiting from replacement uPVC double glazing, the accommodation requires some updating and comprises an entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, L-shaped double aspect lounge/diner, separate kitchen, rear conservatory, inner hall, three bedrooms and shower room. An attached garage with up-and-over door leading from the driveway provides off-road parking, together with level access to the accommodation. The level lawned front gardens are attractively stocked and lead to the side and rear gardens, again extremely level, secure, well enclosed, attractively stocked and sunny.

In all, a bungalow which, in particular, will prove of immense appeal to families or retirement buyers wanting to retain their independence, but to have superb village amenities 'on the doorstep'.

THE LOCATION

Carlidnack Close leads from Carlidnack Road and is situated just off the village centre with nearby amenities including a garage, active village hall, convenience stores with sub-post office, cafe, restaurant, doctors surgery, thatched public house, electrician, hairdresser, church and craft stores. Off Grove Hill there is a highly regarded primary school and, from just outside the property, there is a regular bus service to the nearby port of Falmouth, five miles distant, just voted by the readers of The Sunday Times as 'The Best Place to Live in the United Kingdom'. The beautiful sub-tropical gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah are on the outskirts of the village, beyond which are the tree-lined day-sailing waters of the Helford River. There is a golf course at nearby Budock Vean, and stunning clifftop walks to Durgan and Rosemullion Head lead to the sandy bathing beach at Maenporth.
