THE PROPERTY 7 Green Lane Close presents a great chance to acquire a home for improvement in such a convenient and great position.
Set in an established garden, enclosed and particularly private at the rear, Number 7 is a detached two bedroom bungalow that is in need of work to realise its full potential. The extent of this work could be the modernisation of the current design or indeed there is scope to expand and possibly utilise the attic rooms and the super view to become something larger and more special, subject to necessary consents.
THE LOCATION & A LITTLE HISTORY The site of Green Lane Close and Parc An Challow were once two fields where in the early 1900's granite merchant Charles Wesley Andrew part owned the adjacent granite works and lived at neighbouring Victoria Villa. In 1959 Number 7's plot was sold and it appears builder Mr Breakell of Falmouth was responsible for the building of all eight homes here.
Green Lane Close lies above Penryn and off Green Lane, with Number 7 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.7, on foot, one easily 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.
