A UNIQUE 1970'S HOUSE WITH OUTSTANDING RIVER AND COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS Set in a private and quiet location at the end of a lane, surrounded by open countryside, facing south and enjoying fabulous unobstructed water views over Restronguet Creek. In need of general modernisation and offering huge potential to extend or redevelop. A very unique opportunity in such a special geographic location.
The Property - Penolva has been in the same family ownership for almost 45 years and is offered for sale for the first time since it was built in 1974. The location is very special set in a private, quiet and non estate position at the end of a lane and surrounded by open countryside. It is understood that the site was once an orchard to a neighbouring property within Chycoose and hence it is of little surprise that the property faces due south and furthermore it enjoys fabulous unobstructed water views over Restronguet Creek. Penolva was designed to take advantage of the outlook with the accommodation arranged on a reverse level principle. The main living area is situated to the first floor with a veranda accessible from the sitting/dining room allowing the internal space to flow to the outside which provides a wonderful modern living area. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, two double bedrooms and a shower room. To the upper ground floor there is a further bedroom and bathroom as well as access to the rear porch and rear garden. The property has been well maintained over the years although it is now in need of general updating and modernisation but it offers huge potential to extend, remodel or indeed redevelop. This is a truly unique opportunity particularly in such a special geographic location.
Chycoose - The hamlets of Point and Penpol combine to form a residential community about five miles to the south of Truro. Chycoose lies on the very edge of Point. A short distance away from the property is a public footpath which provides a pleasant short walk to the creek where there is a public slipway as well as providing access to the old Tram Road for access to Devoran and Point. Restronguet Creek is very popular with boating enthusiasts and provides easy access to the sailing waters of the Fal Estuary (Carrick Roads). In the first half of the 19th century Devoran was a busy port shipping iron ore which was transported to the village from the inland mining areas via the Redruth and Chacewater four gauge railway which ran along the old tram road between Devoran and Penpol. Point is also at one end of the Bissoe cycle trail which runs along the creek to Devoran through Bissoe and eventually leads to the north Cornish coast at Portreath. There are golf courses at nearby Killiow, Truro and Falmouth. Local facilities in Devoran include the parish church, popular public house, doctors surgery and a modern primary school. Local day to day facilities are available in Carnon Downs which include a post office, supermarket, doctors surgery/pharmacy, dental practice, garden centre, village hall and regular bus connections to Truro and Falmouth.
Truro - The Cathedral City of Truro is renowned for its excellent shopping centre, fine selection of restaurants, bars, private and state schools, college and main line railway link to London (Paddington). The Hall for Cornwall is also a popular venue providing all year round entertainment and other cultural facilities include the Royal Cornwall Museum, Royal Cornwall Hospital at Treliske and the historic Cathedral.
Falmouth - The historic port of Falmouth has undergone major redevelopment in recent years with huge investment and is now thriving. The town has an excellent range of everyday facilities including banks, building societies, restaurants, schools and colleges as well as a branch railway line providing regular access to Truro. The harbour and beaches are significant attractions of the town and since 2003 Falmouth has also been home to the National Maritime Museum. For sailing enthusiasts there is direct access to Carrick Roads and the River Fal and several yacht marinas close by. It also has its own university with a campus at Woodlane and Tremough.
