THE LOCATION Kernick Road lies above Penryn, 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 this property, just a few minutes on foot, one accesses the 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 Built in the 1930's Number 36 is a double bay fronted bungalow with a very useful attic room. Modernised over the years by our vendor and now a very comfortable family home. Sited between Penryn Primary and Secondary school this is a family-friendly home as there are no major roads to cross and the children could easily walk to school.
The bathroom, en-suite shower room and kitchen have all been modernised and are well-presented. The sitting room is large enough to accommodate a large suite plus dining table and chairs. From the sitting room stairs lead to an attic room that is currently used as a third bedroom (we are unable to describe this as a bedroom as it does not have building regs to be used as such, this would include the fitting of a fire door, but possible). Both bedroom one and two are of a good size and bedroom two has the benefit of an en-suite shower room. Off the kitchen is a boot room which leads to the rear garden and would be very useful to dry a dog after a long walk around the nearby reservoir. The gardens are easy maintenance, with the rear having off-road parking for two large or three small cars. Garage and summerhouse.
