In the owners words
It has been a delight to spend some years in Penvean, with dear neighbours around me; it is a real haven of quiet in a perfect location, just five minutes walk down to the town.
Twenty five years ago my parents lovingly transformed the house into a flowing flexible space and carefully designed the garden to create manageable and pretty terraces; including a warm lined cabin for home working.
It is a light-filled house especially on a sunny day; with its open aspect to the front and southwest facing garden to the rear, it looks towards the cathedral with far reaching views and sunsets.
Now it needs a new vision and energy to take it forward again.
