Sun deck
Spanning across the whole width of the rear of the rear of the property, with access via patio doors from both living room and breakfast room is a extremely generous, enclosed solid wood timber sun deck - a fabulous edition to the property! It provides expansive space for socialising and dining and takes in the lovely elevated views across Swanpool and out to Falmouth Bay and the surrounding coastlines.

To one corner of the lawn is a timber deck which enjoys the very last of the days sunshine. A pathway leads along the other side of the property where there is a outside tap and continues to give access to two separate doors one which leads into the ground floor bedroom and one leading into the utility room.
