THE LOCATION Pinewood occupies one of our favourite residential locations on Falmouth's southern side, tucked in behind Swanpool lake and nature reserve with a large variety of ducks, swans and other birds, situated opposite the front of the property and can be seen from the front bedrooms. Just a few minutes' walk is Swanpool Beach and the South West coastal path offering a variety of interesting walks. 'Pinewood' is just over a mile from the town and harbour, where there is an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains, including Tesco's, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penmere Halt) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro for Exeter and London, Paddington. Falmouth Docks are a major contributor to the town's economy and along with Falmouth University (with campuses in Falmouth and Penryn) and Falmouth Marine School, specialising in traditional and modern boat building, marine engineering and environmental science, ensure an all year round and vibrant community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro. Falmouth boasts the third largest natural harbour in the world and is renowned for its maritime facilities which offer some of the best boating and sailing opportunities in the country. Falmouth is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
THE PROPERTY Home to our vendors for many years and likely that the new owner may want to modernise and update. The living area runs from the front to the rear, making it very light and there is a very nice conservatory off the dining area that overlooks the attractively landscaped rear garden. As well as the Sitting/Dining room there is a kitchen large enough to be described as a Kitchen/Diner, well-appointed and again looking over the garden, this kitchen also has a utility room that leads to a W/C and the garage. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, with the master having an en-suite.
Thought to have been built by a local builder in the 1980's for his own home 'Pinewood' has been carefully looked-after and is well-presented. If it's a quality home in a lovely, peaceful location you are looking for, 'Pinewood' could be the one!
