Occupying an attractive semi-rural setting, on the very edge of Penryn, overlooking and backing onto unspoilt countryside, a detached 3-bedroomed bungalow, providing well presented, gas centrally heated and double glazed accommodation, with 2 conservatories, to the front and the rear, standing in pretty, well stocked gardens, bordered to the rear by a picturesque stream, and with off-road parking in addition to a detached garage with store below.

THE PROPERTY

21 Lanoweth is a detached bungalow, lovingly maintained by the present owners, situated on the extreme edge of Penryn, backing onto a picturesque stream with open countryside beyond.

Benefiting from double glazing, gas central heating and two sets of solar panelling providing subsidised heating and hot water, the bungalow is set within attractively stocked and landscaped gardens which, albeit sloping, provide a good degree of privacy and attractive aspect from all main rooms.

Off-road parking in addition to the garage is provided at road level, with steps leading down to either side of the property and, beyond, to the rear gardens. There is a useful store under the garage and particularly attractive rear gardens feature sitting-out terraces, a pond and many specimen plants including acer, camellias, azaleas, flowering quince, rhododendrons, hydrangeas and lilac etc.

From the front elevation, an entrance porch leads into the reception hall, off which there is a well proportioned living room with open fireplace with log-burner and sliding double glazed doors to the front conservatory. The kitchen, to the rear, opens into the second conservatory which is currently used as a dining room by the owners, and accessed from the kitchen is a large cellar (of limited head height), ideal for storage etc. Two bedrooms are double in size, with the third bedroom ideal as a child's room or study etc, and the family bath/shower room has been attractively appointed with a white four-piece suite including a separate shower cubicle.

THE LOCATION

Lanoweth is situated on the northern edge of Penryn, within walking distance of the university campus at Tremough, and an approximate ten/fifteen minute walk from the railway station and town centre. A nearby bus stop provides an extremely regular service to Penryn, Falmouth, Truro and beyond, with Falmouth just three miles distant and the cathedral city of Truro, nine miles away and readily accessed by the A39.
