Bedrooms: 3
Conveniently positioned for Penryn's excellent amenities, a semi-detached home offering light, surprisingly spacious and extremely well appointed 3-bedroomed accommodation, beautifully modernised and presented throughout, benefiting from an attached garage with electronic roller door, attractively landscaped rear gardens, gas fired central heating, replacement uPVC double glazing and, from the rear elevation, far-reaching views over the outskirts of Penryn to St Gluvias and surrounding countryside.


To be sold for the first time in over thirty years, 52a Helston Road is a superb and most deceptive family home, providing extremely light and well proportioned three-bedroomed accommodation, beautifully maintained and improved throughout, with the unusual benefits of an attached garage and attractive rear garden.

A roadside glance provides little indication of the high calibre of accommodation this property offers, having been meticulously modernised and improved by the present owners, with features including replacement uPVC double glazing throughout the accommodation, modern gas fired central heating with combination boiler, beautifully reappointed first floor bathroom with whirlpool bath and separate shower cubicle, three particularly well proportioned bedrooms, comprehensively appointed double aspect kitchen with Baumatic appliances and, from the rear elevation, far-reaching panoramic views are enjoyed over the gardens and outskirts of Penryn to St Gluvias, Lower Treluswell and surrounding countryside.

A covered side passageway provides direct sheltered access from the accommodation to a block-built garage, a highly unusual benefit for properties in this area, large enough for two small vehicles, with electronic roller door and second WC. Steps from the side passageway lead down onto the attractively landscaped rear gardens which include a lawn with shrub and flower borders, raised paved patio and access to a useful basement room, with light and power connected, ideal for use as a workshop, studio or home office etc.


The ancient borough town of Penryn provides exceptional day-to-day amenities, literally 'on the doorstep' of 52a Helston Road, including junior and secondary schooling, bus and rail services, shops, supermarket, bank, public houses, doctors surgery and university campus site at nearby Tremough.

Located at the head of Penryn River, the town stands at 'the gateway' to the nearby port of Falmouth, approximately three miles distant, where there can be found a further excellent range of shopping, commercial and leisure amenities including sandy beaches, golf course, National Maritime Museum, many restaurants, sub tropical gardens and picturesque coastline walks.

The cathedral city of Truro, approximately ten miles distant, is the county's administrative, schooling, commercial, educational and health centre, easily accessed by both road and rail from Penryn, with main theatre venue, The Hall For Cornwall and mainline rail link to London (Paddington) - journey time approximately four and a half hours.
