Property description

Occupying an extremely convenient position in this ever-popular residential area, within easy walking distance of schools, the university campus, town centre and railway station, a highly impressive former farmhouse, substantially extended and improved, providing extremely spacious and well appointed 4 double bedroom accommodation, set within attractively landscaped, level and surprisingly private gardens, with double garage, additional parking and superb annexe - 'The Stables' - ideal for a dependent relative or as a lucrative source of letting income.

The Property

Dating, we understand, from the late 1800's, 'Green Lane Farmhouse' is an extremely deceptive semi-detached home, almost 'hidden' from the roadside, yet within yards of junior and secondary schooling and a few minutes' walk of the university campus, railway station and town centre.

Substantially extended and improved, the property offers much quality throughout the well proportioned and versatile accommodation. Features include replacement uPVC double glazing, comprehensive gas fired central heating, slate flooring and panelled timber doors, to rooms briefly comprising: An entrance porch, deep reception hall, study area, ground floor cloakroom/WC, large lounge with open fireplace, substantial double glazed conservatory, separate dining room, and delightful family sized kitchen/breakfast room with slate flag flooring and red Aga.

Upstairs, a part galleried landing leads to four large double bedrooms, two of which have private shower rooms, in addition to which a 'master' bedroom has a beautifully reappointed bath/shower room, currently a through room but easily reconfigured if preferred. The front-facing bedrooms enjoy lovely far-reaching views over the town and Penryn River to miles of surrounding countryside.

To the front of the property there are level and attractively landscaped gardens which are well enclosed to all sides, and to the southern elevation, there is a delightful 'walled' courtyard which enjoys an extremely high degree of privacy, has been terraced and paved for ease of maintenance, is ideal for sunbathing and outside dining, and contains a useful block-built store.

From Green Lane, double gates and granite gateposts open onto a brick-pavia parking area, sufficient for several vehicles, in addition to which the superb outbuilding, 'The Stables', built for our clients to a high standard of cavity block construction, includes a double garage with electronic roller door and, to the side, independent access to a self-contained annexe, ideal for a dependent relative or as a lucrative source of letting income. This additional accommodation includes an entrance hall, well appointed shower room and, to the first floor, a well proportioned open-plan living room with fully fitted kitchen, and double bedroom with fitted wardrobes.

In all, a superb two-family or family home with income. An early viewing appointment is therefore unhesitatingly recommended by the vendors' Sole Agent.

The Location

'Green Lane Farmhouse' is situated at the 'top' of Green Lane with its elevated position providing the extremely far-reaching views. Junior schooling is 'on the doorstep', Penryn College is just a few minutes' walk away, as is the university campus at Tremough and the railway station, just a few minutes from the 'foot' of Green Lane, from where there are regular services to Falmouth and Truro. In addition, there is a regular bus service along Green Lane and Penryn's many other facilities, including rugby club, cricket club, supermarket and town centre, are also all within easy reach.
