THE PROPERTY This is a beauty whose charm and style might not be apparent from a cursory look. Believed to have been built 'mid-century' in the late 1940's, Meadow View is nicely set in a generous plot where the garden behind is a real treat.
Accommodation is light and bright with the style, proportion and features consistent with its era of build. There are two good double bedrooms, one with box bay window and the other with a walk-in wardrobe area. The kitchen/dining room is a sociable space with wooden or ceramic tile floor, contemporary fitted units and access through to the sitting room which overlooks and accesses the garden. The bath/shower room is superb with its high vaulted ceiling, oversized shower cubicle and stand alone claw foot bath, not to mention the bliss of an under heated tile floor and remotely controlled Velux window.
Turning stairs from the kitchen/dining room lead to an attic room which incorporates a WC plus plenty of eave storage. This space is used as a third bedroom by the current owners.
The garden will excite many; measuring a healthy 60' x 40' (18.29m x 12.19m) plus, it is level and enclosed with a southerly aspect. As well as a large paved terrace, it is lawned, has a summerhouse and chicken run plus a good-sized polytunnel.
At the front, there is paved hardstanding for two/three cars and a gated driveway to fit a caravan, motorhome or boat perhaps, leading to a single garage.
This is an undoubted rarity, likely to attract plenty of interest!
THE LOCATION Oakland Park lies on the outskirts of Falmouth, about one mile from the town, harbourside and beaches. The location is convenient for main road access to Truro and local towns. Falmouth School is relatively nearby, as are Primary Schools at Mongleath and local shops including the excellent 'early 'til late' Co-op at Boslowick.
Meadow View is set at the head of this select Close with a perfectly orientated rear garden and wooded views beyond.
