Commanding a large corner plot at the end of a quite cul-de-sac, this excellent 2/3 bedroom bungalow enjoys mature gardens leading to a south facing, 1 acre paddock with stunning sea views beyond.
The entrance hall opens to all principle rooms in the property and offers a substantial amount of useful storage cupboards along the way. The property enjoys an excellent sense of space and light, most notably in the large triple aspect living room with double glazed sliding doors offering excellent south facing see views and access to a raised patio. There is added comfort from a sleek wood burner with polished slate hearth, a lovely focal point.
The pleasantly appointed U-shaped kitchen, with tiled floors and part tiled walls, LED spot lights and oak block effect worktop, enjoys a lovely view across the extensive gardens and ground, via the large window conveniently positioned above the sink. There is a range of matching floor and wall cabinetry with a built-in double oven and electric hob with space for free standing appliances and a breakfast table and chairs.
Once a third bedroom, the dining room now acts as a versatile additional reception room leading to a conservatory offering another sitting area and probably the best position in the home to appreciate the incredible 180-degree views of country, sea and coastline.
There are two well-proportioned double bedrooms, the master en-suite with its own shower, toilet, wash hand basin and fully tiled walls, whilst the second bedroom enjoys a dual aspect offering great light and ample space for free standing furniture. A modern family bathroom is very nicely appointed, comprising matching beech effect wall units and matching vanity unit with wash hand basin, a bath with hand held mixer shower and fully tiled walls.
The scale, position, privacy and view from the plot have to be viewed to be appreciated. Beautifully manicured gardens are made up of an attractive balance of lawned areas, mature borders, rose beds, vegetable planters and cages, patios, pergola with climbing plants and then lead to a level open paddock of an acre with the views of the sea beyond. The stunning gardens are a testament to the owners hard work and passion over a number of years, but now fully established an array of colours present themselves through the year. The property, gardens and adjoining paddock (agricultural classification) total 1.25 acres.
There is a large drive with parking for multiple vehicles and a double garage with power and lighting. The garage already contains double glazed windows, so in theory would make a conversion a fairly straight forward task if wishing to create further living accommodation the internal layout of the property would lend itself comfortably to this idea.
Benefitting from such a substantial plot, there would be room to build a new garage subject to the necessary planning permission.

The village is well positioned on the south west coast between two main towns, Helston (5.5 miles) and Penzance (8 miles) which puts larger shops and supermarkets within easy reach on a bus route from the village, whilst there is a convenience store in the village itself for every day essentials. In addition to Praa Sands beach, there are a selection of other less frequented hidden gems like Perranuthnoe, Kenneggy Cove and Prussia Cove, famously used by smugglers in the 18th century. These are all accessible via a stomp along the South West Coastal Path. There is fantastic history close by offering beautiful sights and walks at National Trust locations like Godolphin House and St. Michaels Mount.
Nearby Porthleven, a historic fishing port, provides a range of excellent eateries and is recognised as a hotspot for foodies, hosting an annual food festival.
