Occupying a superb position on the edge of this ever-popular village, backing onto open farmland and enjoying far-reaching views to Goonhilly, a detached individual bungalow set in good sized level gardens, providing faultlessly presented 3 (possibly) 4 bedroom accommodation, extended and substantially improved by the present owners over the last 2 years. Now, an ideal family or retirement home, ready to move straight into, with excellent village amenities all within easy walking distance.


'Staplehurst' is a superbly presented, detached, individual bungalow, occupying an excellent position on the edge of this extremely well served North Helford Area village, backing onto open countryside and with far-reaching views from the rear to Goonhilly on The Lizard peninsula in the distance.

Since their purchase, our clients have carried out a 'top-to-toe' refurbishment to create what is, now, a lovely family or retirement home, ready to move straight into, with some of the works including: conversion of the former garage to provide a third bedroom and studio (possible fourth bedroom), complete rewiring, replumbing, the installation of new radiators and a new condensing oil fired combination boiler, the installation of new uPVC double glazing (except in the utility room and conservatory), two new shower rooms, the replacement of all internal doors, the installation of a wood-burning stove, the fitting of a superb kitchen/diner, the replacement of all soffits, fascias and rainwater goods, together with complete redecoration and new floor coverings throughout.

Set well back from this quiet no-through road, the property stands in deep, almost level, well stocked and attractively landscaped gardens with deep front driveway, together with a large gravelled hard-standing, providing ample parking for several vehicles, including caravans and boats etc. Lawned gardens lead to the sheltered front entrance and pathways to either side lead to the broad rear gardens, which are well enclosed and include a block-built store and timber shed.

In all, a lovely village home in one of the county's most sought-after areas.


The village of Constantine is widely recognised as one of the North Helford Areas most desirable communities by virtue of its proximity to the beautiful tree-lined creeks of the Helford River and excellent day-to-day amenities, including a doctors surgery, two village stores, public house, church, hairdressers, sports and social club, highly regarded county primary school, and active community hall - The Tolmen Centre.

The port of Falmouth is just seven miles distant and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's legal, administrative, health, retailing and educational centre, is an approximate thirty minute drive away.
