AGENTS NOTE It is likely that prospective buyers will be unable to mortgage Praze House. Several years ago the roof was foam insulated from the inside, a common practice but one frowned upon by surveyors and most if not all lenders, we understand. In any case, the roof is old and as such will need replacement, after which we believe the property will be suitable for mortgage purposes.
The current owner has a parking arrangement with nearby business Elegant Homes. We understand that this arrangement is available to any intending purchasers also.
THE LOCATION Praze House is set up above The Praze, accessed through a discreet entrance in the wall and up granite steps to the property. The property is remarkably convenient, just half a mile from Penryn town, University, Railway Station and two miles from Falmouth harbour town. .
THE PROPERTY Nowadays Praze House lies within a generous garden although in the late 1800's as a former farmhouse, it would have owned much of this part of Penryn, as we know it today. The property is pretty and nicely proportioned within, providing 3 bedrooms and bathroom upstairs and two living rooms and kitchen/dining room downstairs. Owned by a keen horticulturalist and former co-owner of Cornish Garden Nurseries, the garden is now overgrown but a real treat, full of so many established plants, wild flowers, shrubs and small trees including many Camelia and Magnolia grown from seed. There are two ponds, a greenhouse and shed together with two excellent stone workshops, one adjoining the house.
Praze house does not have its own parking space (please see the agent's notes) and it is set up above the road, but with some work, represents a remarkable opportunity to secure a substantial house with a glorious garden in this convenient position.
