Bedrooms: 4
Occupying an attractive semi-rural location, away from busy roads, yet highly convenient for Penryn, Falmouth and the south Cornish coast, a stunning, detached, highly individual modern home constructed to exacting standards to a contemporary, cutting-edge design, set within gardens and grounds of approximately 3.5 acres over which stunning views are enjoyed to miles of surrounding unspoilt countryside and Falmouth Bay. A superb, high-quality home, completed in 2022, for sale with the benefit of immediate vacant possession and no onward chain, NOW BENEFITING FROM PLANNING PERMISSION FOR A LARGE GARAGE/OUTBUILDING.


Completed in 2022, 'Hidden Springs' is a detached, individual house built by the present owner to a stunning one-off design with many contemporary, cutting-edge features, successfully combined with the use of high quality traditional materials including slate, stone, oak and timber cladding etc.

Constructed on the site of a former agricultural building, the property enjoys a slightly elevated position with all main rooms enjoying panoramic southerly views over the property s own grounds and, beyond, over miles of countryside to Argal Reservoir, Falmouth Bay and The Lizard peninsula. High quality aluminium double glazing to the many windows and doors is complemented by extremely high levels of insulation which, combined with the ground source heat pump, provides a light, bright, extremely warm yet economic to run home. We also understand permission exists for the installation of solar panelling. Underfloor heating features throughout the ground floor with all rooms individually thermostatically controlled. Electric specification is high throughout with ample power points, satellite/TV sockets, inset downlighting and dimmer switching. There are oak internal doors, deep oak internal sills, which are slate outside to further the low maintenance nature of the exterior.

Immediately entering the property, one is struck by the proportions and superb open-plan design to the ground floor, which is further accentuated by a turning oak staircase with glass balustrading leading to a galleried first floor living area which, in particular, benefits from the panoramic views through floor-to-ceiling glazed screens. Upstairs, tall vaulted ceilings further the sense of space: the master bedroom suite having its own dressing room and shower room, as well as two further double bedrooms and a superbly appointed family shower room. Downstairs, a fourth double bedroom is conveniently situated adjacent to a large bathroom with the arrangement ideal for a dependant relative, visiting friends or, if preferred, continued use of the bedroom as a TV room, gym or office etc.

An immense gravelled forecourt provides private off-road parking for a large number of vehicles and is ideal for those with a caravan and boats etc, with plenty of space for the construction of garaging if required, subject to all necessary additional consents. The garden surrounding the property has been landscaped with gravelled terraces and pathways which have been planted with griselinia hedging and many specimen shrubs and plants including palms, fruit bushes and heathers etc. The gardens then lead directly onto a gently sloping field, at the foot of which, on the western most boundary, the owners have landscaped an attractive pond area fed by a fast flowing stream. The land extends to approximately 3.5 acres or thereabouts, in addition to which we understand the neighbouring farmer may consider the sale of additional land, subject to separate and later negotiation.


On 24 May 2024 Cornwall Council granted Conditional Planning Permission for the construction of a large detached garage/outbuilding, situated on the eastern side of the house, close to the entrance. Copies of this planning permission are attached, further details of which can be obtained from Cornwall Council's online planning register.


'Hidden Springs' is located on Trenoweth Lane, just outside the western outskirts of the village of Mabe Burnthouse whose day to day amenities include a public house, village stores, junior school and regular bus service. Mabe Church is less than one mile distant as is Argal Reservoir, around which there is a picturesque circular walk together with café. The university campus at Tremough is easily cycled to being just one and a half miles away, and beyond which is the well served town of Penryn with regular rail service to Truro City (approximately ten miles). Falmouth is just four miles distant and is widely regarded as south Cornwall's most sought after town by virtue of its beaches, sub-tropical gardens, leisure facilities, shops, restaurants sailing facilities and picturesque coast line walks along the beautiful South West Coastal Path. 'Hidden Springs' is therefore perfectly situated to enjoy all the features this highly sought after has to offer.
