Property description

Occupying an attractive, elevated and quiet location, on the outskirts of the sought-after village of Gweek, on the banks of the beautiful Helford River, a detached individual bungalow, providing well proportioned and appointed 3-bedroomed accommodation, with garage, parking and delightful gardens to both front and rear, enjoying breathtaking, panoramic views over the village and boatyard, to miles of surrounding unspoilt countryside.


The property


'Lowenva' occupies an attractive, elevated position on the outskirts of this sought-after village at the head of the beautiful Helford River, providing light and well proportioned accommodation, attractively reappointed throughout by the owner, standing within beautifully stocked and landscaped gardens, enjoying breathtaking 180° views over the gardens to Gweek Boatyard, the upper reaches of the river, outskirts of the village and miles of surrounding, unspoilt, wooded countryside.

Located off this quiet semi-rural lane, the property is approached from the rear where there is a deep garage with electronic roller doors, additional parking area, and professionally landscaped gardens with paved, gravelled and decked terraces, including a kitchen garden area with greenhouse, raised planters and useful store.

Benefiting from replacement uPVC double glazing, oil fired central heating and an attractive standard of decoration throughout, the accommodation briefly comprises an entrance lobby with cloaks/shower room and double aspect utility room off, attractively appointed kitchen/breakfast room with full range of cream painted Shaker-style units, inner hall, double aspect lounge with hexagonal bay window, versatile third bedroom or dining room, two double bedrooms, and a beautifully refitted main bathroom with roll-top bath. In addition, some prospective purchasers may wish to note the property has previously benefited from (now lapsed) planning consent for conversion of an extensive loft area to provide a first floor 'master' bedroom suite.

The front gardens are a particular feature of the property and include a superb sun terrace, ideal for al fresco dining etc, sweeping lawns and profusely stocked borders with a mass of colourful, mature azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons, roses and other specimen plants. Throughout, these gardens enjoy an extremely sunny, south-westerly aspect.
