The Owner's Words

“What we noticed was that the house was bright, spacious and airy, especially with the balcony. As you get the sun in the garden all afternoon you can sit on the balcony and watch the sun going down, it is also lovely to hear the birds singing as the area is very quiet.”

Humberts are delighted to offer this beautifully presented modern home to the market for this first time since its construction in 2002. The owners have made some great improvements and modernised a variety of rooms including the kitchen and bathrooms to create a perfectly balanced family home.

Approached under the illusion of a bungalow façade, there is an incredible realisation of the sense of space from the moment you step foot in the door with the open entrance hall setting the tone for the rest of the property. There is a w/c on this level whilst the hall then leads onto all principle rooms.

Double doors open to a considerably sized yet very comfortable living room with a focal gas fire and sliding doors to the decked balcony. The adjoining dining room also leads to the west facing balcony via a further set of sliding doors which provides the option of eating in or dining alfresco. The well-proportioned room has a semi open plan feel with the adjoining kitchen and benefits from great light of east and west aspects.

The stunning kitchen is the central social point of the home. Recently updated, it offers a stylish, sleek finish with matching floor and wall units, a breakfast bar peninsula, travertine floor plus under counter and mood lighting. Integral appliances include a dishwasher, AEG mid-height fan oven and microwave oven and a large inset induction hob and extractor over. There is space for an American style fridge freezer.

There is internal access to the garage with electric door serves well as extra storage for kitchen appliances. The originally oversized garage is been utilised to create a further versatile room to the rear which makes a great games/TV room or an overflow bedroom. And finally, to this floor is a study/single room to the front.

The lower ground floor accommodation comprises the four principle bedrooms which all benefit for their own en-suite facilities.

Generous master bedroom enjoys a walk-in dressing room and adjoining en-suite which is stylishly appointed with a double shower with waterfall shower head, tasteful sanitary ware and low-level lighting. There are three further double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, two of which having been recently modernised, one with a shower and the other with a bath and mixer shower.


To the front there is a private drive with parking for 2-3 vehicles in front of the garage which is bordered to one side by lawn and mature shrubs. To the rear, the balcony offers a fantastic sheltered seating area which enjoys sun all afternoon and evening, a perfect place to enjoy alfresco dining or a BBQ. The lower level garden provides a private and enclosed balance of lawn, patio and decking and there is a shed to the side.

Surrounding Area

The property occupies a most convenient position on the outskirts of the town which offers an excellent range of amenities. Alternatively Falmouth lies approximately 3 miles to the south east and contains a further range of shops. Within a short walk of the property there are both bus stops and a railway station which connect Penryn with both Falmouth and Truro (8 miles). The town sits at the head of the Penryn River which leads to the Carrick Roads, a broad expanse of water which is a magnet for sailors. The south coast offers a number of fine sandy beaches and coves and readily accessible are Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth beaches. Penryn is a medieval town originally founded by a Bishop of Exeter. It became a major ecclesiastical centre following the foundation of Glasney College in 1265 and by the 15th century was a port of some significance. The development of tin and copper mining in the 17th century heightened the town's prosperity as a port and 200 years later there was a shift of emphasis as the vast resources of granite in the surrounding areas were developed and large quantities of stone were shipped from the port to destinations in the UK and abroad.
