Built by our clients in the early 1980's as a comfortable four bedroom family home, in 3.8 acres, Little Carclew was altered and extended in the mid 1990's providing a substantial two bedroom annexe/granny wing of comfortable proportions.

The main house briefly comprises three separate reception rooms of good size, a light well appointed double aspect kitchen/breakfast room with attractive views and at first floor level there are four bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom/wc, and a family bathroom/wc.

The annexe comprises a superb "L" shape lounge and dining room with French doors onto a paved terrace, well equipped kitchen, ground floor cloakroom/wc  two first floor double bedrooms with extensive fitted wardrobes served by a bathroom/wc with separate shower. The accommodation between the main house and the annexe is interconnecting on both floors and therefore the property would suit a large family requiring six good bedrooms and spacious, versatile living accommodation.

The house faces south and enjoys attractive views across its own garden and grounds. A broad paved terrace with steps leads down to a formal lawn garden flanked on three sides with well established mature shrubs, trees and plants providing excellent shelter and privacy.

The property is set back from the minor parish road leading to the Enys Estate and Penryn/Falmouth in one direction and the village of Mylor Bridge or the A39 to Truro in the opposite direction. To the side of the drive there is a purpose built  garage/workshop block with full length loft storage area which is fully boarded and has two Velux roof lights.  The adjoining stables provide two loose boxes and a tack room. To the side of the garage there is an open parking/turning area with sufficient space for a good number of cars and/or boats and beside the stables there is a concrete hard standing for horse lorry.

The land comprises of five easily worked and conveniently shaped pasture fields extending to 3.37 acres with a long frontage to the road and good gated entrances to each field. In the top field with mature apple trees there is a useful timber frame implement/tractor shed with adjoining stable and hay/fodder store. The land is ideal for equestrian use, livestock needs, hobby farming, pets and family use etc.

All in all, Little Carclew is a most impressive, beautifully presented and conveniently placed four bedroom family home with a spacious purpose built annexe/granny wing, ideal for a dependent relative or for holiday lettings etc in a superb rural setting.
