Mabe Burnthouse, Penryn

A characterful detached three bedroom, single storey property, formerly a farm building converted some years ago but more recently thoroughly refurbished creating a very comfortable home.  

Forming part of a small courtyard development of similar stone built former barns situated in a

convenient yet quite rural location within the Parish of Mabe, surrounded by glorious countryside

 close to the Argal and College Reservoirs. 





The village of Mabe is just under 1 mile distant and has a village store, Post Office, hairdressers, public house, well regarded primary school and community hall. The ASDA supermarket and other main amenities at Penryn are just over 1 mile distant. The expanding University Campus at Tremough is about 1½ miles distant. The bustling coastal town of Falmouth is 3 miles distant with the beaches and harbour about 5 miles distant. The towns of Helston and Redruth are both 9 miles and Truro City centre with its excellent shops, commercial and health facilities are approximately 9½ miles distant. The Helford Passage on the northern banks of the picturesque Helford River, a mecca for sailors or all levels is 5½ miles distance and Mylor Harbour with its excellent marine facilities is 6½ miles distant.  This pleasing rural setting is central to an abundance of rural walks so ideal for nature lovers.        


The property, and those neighbouring, once made up a farmyard but some years ago were carefully converted for residential use.  The four properties together with the beautiful farmhouse now make up a small complex of homes.  This one has been the subject of an extensive refurbishment programme during 2020 with improvements that have included a stylish brand new fitted kitchen with appliances, a refitted bathroom with bath and shower cubicle, new uPVC double glazing with grey exterior and white interior frames, upgraded central heating with new boiler, and provision of new en-suite WC to the main bedroom.  All this has been capped off with extensive redecoration whilst externally the private gardens have been landscaped and include a large garden shed.  There is allocated parking for 3 cars in the courtyard to the front. 


The property fronts a courtyard where there is allocated parking for each property.  There is gated access to one side leading to the rear garden which is laid out primarily over two levels.  Sheltered yet sunny it comprises a combination of lawn and low maintenance gravelled areas and incorporates a useful Garden Shed (10’ x 6’) with mains electricity connected and currently used as a utility with tumble dryer and freezer.  The garden extends around a particularly sheltered and private courtyard.  To one corner of the garden there is an oil storage tank.  The current vendor loves her garden particularly for the wide variety of wild birds that like to visit.
