THE PROPERTY Our owners have embarked on a serious renovation of this property over the last few years and are now ready to move to their next project. Much effort, time and expense means the new owner will have little to do but possibly paint a few walls to suit their style and sit in the garden and enjoy.
This bungalow is a proper detached property (meaning there is a significant gap on either side to the neighbouring fences). The interior is very bright and thanks to the introduction of Velux windows natural light floods in. A cosy sitting room with woodburner leads through to the kitchen/diner and garden sunroom. Both bedrooms are doubles and the third bedroom has had the stud wall removed to make a large office but of course the stud wall could be replaced, and the bedroom reinstated. Outside there is driveway parking on both sides plus a large side gate that would give access to boat or campervan parking. The rear garden is sunny and full of birds, greenhouse, shed and raised beds.
THE LOCATION Saltbox Close is a much sought after and exclusive residential cul de sac close to Mylor creek and situated a few minutes' walk from the village centre. Private road, adjoining farmland/countryside. The property lies a few paces from the creek, beside the coastal path with a perfect, leisurely 45-minute walk along the river estuary to the Pandora Inn.
Mylor Bridge is a thriving and much sought-after Creekside village. It has an active, friendly community and excellent facilities that include the Lemon Arms Pub, a well-stocked village store, a highly regarded primary school, pre-school, playgroups, Doctor and Dentist surgeries, a Post Office and Newsagent, Hairdressers, award winning Butcher's shop plus a Fishmonger. The Village Hall has an extensive program that includes exhibitions, a history group, keep-fit classes and monthly cinema showings. There are also several local clubs, tennis courts, a bowling green, playing fields plus regular bus service running to Falmouth and Truro. Small wonder that the Sunday Times named Mylor Bridge as 'One of the Best Places to Live' (2015)!
The Village is located approximately 4 miles from the harbour town of Falmouth and 8 miles from the Cathedral City of Truro - both of which have good schools, excellent shops, business and recreational facilities.
Mylor Creek is a tributary of the River Fal, leading into the Carrick Roads with access to some of the best day sailing waters in the county. There are a number of yacht clubs nearby including those at Restronguet, Mylor, Flushing and several in Falmouth. Mylor Harbour, just a short distance away, has remarkable facilities including a Marina with pontoon and swinging moorings, chandlers, marine services plus restaurants and a general store/café
