THE PROPERTY Owned for many years by the current owner, this really is an honest property where (although well-presented) one can see that many features remain from when it was built in the early 1990's. The kitchen and shower rooms are perfectly useable 'as is' but the new owner will likely budget to modernise and also upgrade the windows and doors, that are original, and made of wood.
Two of the bedrooms are good sized doubles with the third a large single. The master bedroom has both an en-suite and a dressing room. The outside walls are stone, but the inside dividing walls are stud which could come in very handy for those wishing to re-configurate. Personally, we think the wall between the kitchen and dining room could be removed to make a large kitchen/diner which would have the sun shining through from the rear and would look out on the back garden.
The sitting room is quite large and is the depth of the property meaning there are windows to both the front and rear gardens.
Outside is a secluded sunny rear garden with raised patio and over-sized garage and off-road parking.
THE LOCATION Old Well Gardens is a 'no through road' located on the Northern and favoured St Gluvias/Enys side of Penryn. Most of the properties in this location were built in the 1980's and 90's and enjoy plots much larger than those of their modern counterparts. Here one benefits from being close to town but away from the immediate through traffic and noise, as well as being on the edge of an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' on the Carrick Roads with stunning scenery and the popular villages of Mylor and Flushing close by.
Penryn is a historic and ancient market town with an active community and excellent everyday facilities including a nursery, primary and secondary schools. The town enjoys good communication with Falmouth via its bus service and train station, which links to Truro city and mainline Paddington. Penryn is enjoying something of a renaissance witnessed in the regeneration and development of Penryn's inner Harbour area providing riverside accommodation and extensive and exciting dining options. Penryn Campus is occupied by both Falmouth and Exeter Universities sharing buildings, facilities and services as part of the combined universities in Cornwall project; this recent transition into a University town is creating a real 'buzz' for the area. Falmouth town (approximately 2 miles) provides comprehensive shopping, schooling, business and leisure facilities and was recently voted 'the best place to live in the South West' in the prestigious Sunday Times guide.
