Mawnan Smith, Falmouth


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Occupying a most secluded and private plot, within a 5 minute walk of the centre of Mawnan Smith village, a highly appealing individual detached house, featuring delightful mature gardens, spacious and versatile accommodation, together with extensive storage space. The modernised and extended interior benefits from 4 double bedrooms and 4 bath/shower rooms and feels modern, light and particularly versatile, with the additional option of providing a self-contained annexe.


Tucked-away at the foot of a private lane off Castle View Park, 'Knights Meadow' is hidden from the few neighbouring properties and benefits from much of the accommodation and gardens overlooking unspoiled farmland adjacent to the north side of the village centre. Nestled within its own sizeable plot in a secluded setting, yet within easy walk of the village centre, this impressive and individual detached house is accessed via its own sweeping driveway and has been recently modernised/extended to provide spacious four bedroom accommodation, all with delightful aspects over its own grounds and across to unspoiled countryside. Vast basement store rooms provide a perfect space for a work/home office or hobbyists.

Having been extended, updated and tastefully refitted by the current owners, the house, in our opinion, requires no further modernisation and would be suitable for immediate occupation, with the recent extension providing an additional bedroom on ground floor level. The versatility of the accommodation is immediately apparent from the floor plan, particularly in relation to the ground floor bedroom which would be perfect for those requiring one level living with guest/further bedroom accommodation on the first floor or, alternatively, for live-in relatives requiring their own space and privacy. The first floor benefits from three large double bedrooms, including a master en-suite, magnificent guest suite and separate family bathroom, all tastefully refitted.

The vast basement rooms total 634ft of storage space and are suitable for a number of uses these rooms comprise a studio/workshop, large cellar/games room in addition to a separate boiler room.


A magnificent setting, bordering open countryside, but within just a few moments' walk of the centre of the village - with a convenient 'shortcut' providing direct pedestrian access from the property through 'Little-In-Sight'. Excellent day-to-day amenities include a garage, village hall, convenience stores, cafe, thatched public house (The Red Lion), church, electrical store, crafts centre, bowls and cricket clubs, primary school, and regular bus service to the port of Falmouth, approximately five miles distant. From the outskirts of the village, there is a picturesque valley walk to the beach at Maenporth; beautiful coastline walks abound in the area, and on the southern side of the village can be found the sub-tropical National Trust gardens at Carwinion, Glendurgan and Trebah, beyond which are the sheltered sailing waters of the beautiful tree-lined Helford River.

Mawnan Smith provides one of the nicest areas within which to live anywhere in the county and therefore, as the vendors' Sole Agent, we strongly recommend all interested prospective purchasers make an early viewing appointment to fully appreciate the size, scope and versatility of 'Knights Meadow'.
