    About this property

    • The vendors have built a beautiful family home that was completed in 2006 based on the Scandinavian principles of beauty, functionality, natural light and natural materials with stunning results, along with a number of eco solutions to include ground source heating, solar panels, double glazing and the rain water harvesting. The simple pallet of colours and materials used has created a house where the various spaces flow seamlessly from one to the other and yet with the clever use of oak sliding doors and/or hidden doors the spaces can be separated to create more intimate rooms. On the ground floor there is a combination of oak and polished concrete flooring with white walls, floor to ceiling windows, inset glass roof in the main entrance hall and impressive oak sliding doors.

      The large entrance has plenty of built-in storage for coats and boots with stairs to first floor and doors to the utility, study, and WC before stepping down to the kitchen/dining room. This is a wonderful space with kitchen to one side and dining room to the other with floor to ceiling windows with integrated door to front garden and terrace with fabulous sea views. The free-standing kitchen has been fitted with plenty of work top and storage space and includes a Smeg American style fridge/freezer, two oven range cooker with five ring gas hob, dishwasher and central island. There are also two large storage cupboards one of which is used as a walk-in larder. Off the dining room is the main reception room with sliding doors to the garden and woodburning stove with steps up to the second more cosy reception room also with sliding doors out to the garden. We now re-enter the main entrance hall with access to study, WC and utility room. The utility room with door to rear garden is split into three distinct areas of wet room/shower room, control room for the heating and water systems and laundry cupboard fitted with free standing Bosch washing machine, tumble dryer, sink and open shelving.

      Stairs from the entrance hall split into two on the half landing taking you to the east and west wing both with double height vaulted ceilings. In the west wing is a double bedroom, family bathroom with bath and shower and a further double with built-in wardrobes and an ensuite shower room. The east wing has a double bedroom with ensuite shower room, linen cupboard and the principal bedroom which has a good range of built-in wardrobes and an ensuite walk-in shower room.

      Exterior, gardens and garage

      Off the private lane is the drive up to the house where there is parking for several cars and access to the garage/workshop and garden shed. The house sits slightly to the back of the plot with garden all around which has been beautifully landscaped to reflect the Scandinavian/minimalist feel of the house. From the parking area are steps down to the front garden terrace and path that leads through the garden wall to the courtyard garden with access to the house and garage/workshop. This is a very attractive courtyard garden with granite paved paths between raised wooden planters that continue on to the rear of the property. The rear garden has areas of terrace and lawn which continues on around to the southern elevation where there is a further area of terrace, shrubs and lawn. On this southern elevation there is a garden wall separating the rear garden from the front garden that not only creates an interesting structural dimension to the garden but also creates privacy and wind protection. Through the sliding gate/door in the wall one steps through to a further decked terrace area. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn that runs down to the private road at the bottom with a further sun terraced area off the dining room.

      At the top of the drive is a single garage with power and light off which is the workshop area with door to courtyard garden. The large garden shed sits slightly further back to the right of the garage.

    Local information

    • Bow Green is in an elevated position on a private road off the Maenporth Road above Maenporth Beach with Falmouth in one direction and The Helford River in the other. It is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with fantastic beaches and some of the very best sailing waters in the country with world class yachting facilities and marinas nearby. The southwest coastal path is but yards away offering walks to the north and south and more immediately down to Maenporth Beach.
    • Maenporth Beach is a beautiful safe sandy beach with shallow waters and rock pools at low tide, and is popular for sailing, surfing, SUPs, diving and coastal walking. On the beach is a café and the Falmouth surf and water sports school. Set further back from the beach is The Cove Restaurant, owned by the award-winning chef Michael Caines, with a large outside dining terrace enjoying stunning views out to sea.
    • The university town of Falmouth is the nearest major town with an excellent selection of shops and restaurants, junior and senior schooling and a branch line to Penryn and Truro where there is a main line rail service to London Paddington.
