Old Well Gardens, Penryn


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Situated at the foot of this highly popular residential development, within walking distance of Penryn town centre, the head of the Penryn River and all local amenities, a detached house, beautifully presented throughout, providing well proportioned and appointed 4-bedroomed accommodation, benefiting from driveway parking in addition to an attached garage, and unusually large gardens which are beautifully stocked, landscaped and enjoy all-day sunshine.


Built, we understand, c. 1991 for the original owner, 'Chy-Dew-Stow' is a detached house of attractive white elevations with Bradstone quoins and lintels, and dark wood-effect Anglian uPVC double glazed windows with leaded lights.

Faultlessly presented throughout, the accommodation benefits from gas fired central heating, cavity wall insulation, a recent and lavishly appointed kitchen, quality white sanitary ware and high quality floor coverings. The reception hall features a turning staircase with arched stained glass window at mid level, and there is also a useful downstairs cloakroom/WC. The lounge enjoys the lovely outlook over the south-facing gardens; an interconnecting separate dining room leads to the superb kitchen, as well as to a large and substantial conservatory, with doors onto the gardens and courtesy door into the attached garage. Upstairs, the master bedroom again enjoys the south-facing outlook over the gardens and Penryn town, and features an en-suite shower room. One of the three further bedrooms is currently used as a study, and the family bathroom is again most tastefully appointed.

To the front of the property the gardens are attractively landscaped with a brick-pavia driveway providing off-road parking in addition to the attached garage. The gardens, which mainly lie to the southern side of the house, are a particular feature, enjoy the all-day sunshine, and include a raised sun terrace, shaped lawns, beautifully stocked borders and, at the foot, a further large gravelled patio which abuts Church Road.


Old Well Gardens is situated off Truro Hill in Penryn, close to Enys. Penryn's excellent amenities are all within easy reach, via Truro Lane, and include shops, pubs, doctors surgery, schools and excellent public transport facilities. The port of Falmouth is just five miles away with, between, the Penryn River providing access onto the excellent day-sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay. Along the northern banks of the Penryn River a beautiful walk from nearby St Gluvias Church leads to Flushing and, beyond, to Trefusis Point and Mylor Harbour. The cathedral city of Truro is approximately ten miles distant and from where there is a regular main-line rail link to London (Paddington).
