Mylor Bridge, Falmouth


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
An exceptional, individual bungalow, occupying a delightful, 'hidden' and extremely private setting, at the end of this little-known close, yet still within a few minutes' walk of the centre of this well served creekside village. Providing versatile, well proportioned 3/4 bedroomed accommodation, full of character and quality features, set within magnificently stocked gardens with an abundance of mature specimen trees and flowering shrubs which provide privacy, all year round interest and a beautiful outlook from all rooms.


Built by our client for his own occupation and to be sold for the first time since construction approximately thirty years ago, 'The Hollies' is an enchanting, detached, individual bungalow, occupying a delightful, 'hidden', yet convenient setting, just a few minutes' walk from village amenities and the head of Mylor Creek.

Built to an attractive design, 'The Hollies' nestles within its superbly stocked surrounding gardens which provide much shelter and privacy and feature a magnificent array of mature specimen trees and flowering shrubs to all sides.

Situated at the end of this small, select close of just four properties, with no passing traffic, the property benefits from an extremely large integral double garage, almost 23' x 22', with internal staircase to the accommodation which is arranged over one level.

An attractive reception hall provides an impressive introduction to the accommodation, being part galleried with staircase to the garaging below. Features throughout include moulded ceiling cornices, panelled doors, some glazed, and moulded architraves which combine to provide an air of grace and quality.

A double aspect lounge is particularly well proportioned and features an open fireplace, together with doors opening onto the south-facing front sun terrace. A separate dining room could, alternatively, be used as a fourth bedroom or study if preferred, with the kitchen/breakfast room having an adjacent separate utility room with scope for combination into one room if required, subject to consents. Both the master and second bedroom open onto a south-facing balcony, with the master having its own private bathroom in addition to a spacious family bathroom with separate shower cubicle. All three bedrooms feature fitted wardrobes.

The surrounding gardens are a particular feature of the property, having been lavishly stocked and beautifully maintained by our client for over thirty years. Trees and shrubs include a mass of camellias, rhododendrons, conifers, azaleas, palms and tall 'landmark' yew trees. The driveway provides turning and parking in addition to the integral garage, and to both the front and the rear of the property there are beautiful paved terraces which enjoy much shelter, privacy and sunshine.

In all, an extraordinarily attractive home which must be viewed to be fully appreciate.


The Close is situated off Cogos Park, at the entrance to which Comfort Road provides a relatively level walk into the centre of this extremely sought-after village. Excellent day-to-day amenities include a doctors surgery, post office, fishmongers, butchers, general stores, active village hall, public house, dentist, newsagents, hairdressers, church and highly regarded county primary school. Regular bus services are provided to the neighbouring towns of Falmouth and Truro, approximately five and seven miles distant respectively. Mylor Harbour, Cornwall's preeminent boating location, is just over two miles away, and along the banks of Mylor Creek, picturesque walks lead to the extensive day-sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, as well as to Restronguet Creek, home of the thatched waterside Pandora Inn.
