THE LOCATION Kernick Road lies above Penryn with Number 8 enjoying a commanding position overlooking town to river, estuary and coast. The situation is incredibly convenient, within a leisurely 10-15 minute walk from Penryn railway station, university, college and schools as well as the town itself. From No. 8, just a few minutes on foot, one accesses the Asda Superstore, College woods and a wonderful 6 mile circular walk passing 3 reservoirs and uplifting countryside scenery. Penryn is an ancient, historic and very interesting riverside town with a strong sense of community and good everyday shopping and schooling facilities. The siting here of the Universities of Falmouth and Exeter has created something of a renaissance and reinforced the town's standing and popularity.

THE PROPERTY No.8 is set up high above Kernick Road with its lounge, dining room and main bedroom enjoying spectacularly good views overlooking Penryn town to river, estuary & coast. The bungalow is perfectly livable and comfortable 'as is' although most will budget to modernise. Accommodation is well proportioned and flexible with 3 bedrooms, separate sitting & dining rooms plus an 'extra' room with cloakroom beside, suited as a bedroom or work from home office, perhaps. The garden is a good size with areas of paved terrace, lawn & balcony, again with such scope to personalise & improve, all overlooking that fabulous view.

Off Kernick Road is a double car parking bay for No.8, beside which are the steps leading up to the bungalow.
