THE PROPERTY There is a calm and peacefulness at Number 2, where large windows face South and overlook the glorious rear garden and rolling countryside beyond. The bungalow is relatively modest in size and although perfectly liveable 'as is' we think it would benefit from modernisation to one degree or another. Greenfield Close is remarkably positioned and much sought-after by 'those in the know', blessed for its setting beside and overlooking open countryside and the valley whilst being a relatively level and easy walk to the village centre shops, square and a pub, a couple of hundred yards away.
Accommodation is light and bright with two double bedrooms, dual aspect lounge, a fitted kitchen/dining room plus an externally accessed conservatory/garden room with lovely outlook. Windows and doors are UPVC double glazed and an oil fired boiler fuels radiator central heating and hot water supply.
The plot is exceptional - about 160' (48.77m) deep overall x 50' (15.24m) plus wide, having been planted and nurtured by knowledgeable gardeners who have loved living here for over 25 years. The garden is part lawned and richly stocked with some superb specimens giving formality together with a naturalness afforded by carpets of primrose, wild garlic, bluebell and foxglove. The 'hidden' lower garden is a natural delight, with its pond and sheltered areas to sit, all adjoining the field and valley. The front garden sets Number 2 nicely back from the Close road with a 50' (15.24m) long tarmacadam driveway leading to a detached single garage.
THE LOCATION Greenfield Close is located a few minutes' walk from Mawnan Smith village centre, adjoining countryside and an unspoilt valley. The village is about 1.5 miles from Helford Passage and the river. Mawnan itself has good local amenities which include a well rated primary school, beautiful Norman Church, the 17th century Red Lion pub and a general store with Post Office and doctors' surgery. The village square has a restaurant and small selection of shops whilst "The Old Smithy", with resident blacksmith, shows local arts and crafts. Areas of coastline and countryside surrounding the village are arguably amongst some the finest found in Cornwall. Mawnan is also home to Trebah Garden, one of the Great Gardens of Cornwall, rated among the 80 finest gardens in the world and Glendurgan Garden, owned by the National Trust, with its intriguing cherry laurel maze. Falmouth, about four miles away, is a truly beautiful place to visit and is served by a regular bus service. With its proximity to sheltered as well as unsheltered waters, Falmouth has long been a popular boating and water sports location; it boasts the world's third largest deep-water harbour and is the country's first and last major port. Falmouth often plays host as the start and/or finish line to many international sailing races including that of the famous Tall Ships hosted here in 2021. Sandy, south facing beaches, fine restaurants and bars, art galleries and shops prove to be a constant lure for those seeking a warmer and more refined way of life. This, combined with the peace and tranquillity that the magnificent surrounding countryside and coastline has to offer, makes Falmouth and this area unquestionably one of the country's favourite locations.
