With a change of a direction on the horizon, our Vendor has spent a relatively short but very happy time in their home; investing with recently laid flooring and walls redecorated to give the place a modern look that we believe will appeal to all generations that cross the threshold.
A central hallway neatly separates the daytime and sleeping accommodation, and a large living room opens into a kitchen/diner and sun room to offer a semi-open plan ambiance, but without the usual encumbrances. A contemporary shower room serves three good-sized bedrooms, all of which are detached from the adjoining property, to complete the accommodation. Outside, the bungalow is set well-back from the public highway with a private driveway that opens onto a hard-standing area to accommodate parking for at least four vehicles and the added benefit of a recently built timber frame car port. At the rear is a level garden that is predominantly laid to lawn and enjoys a sunny South Easterly aspect with patio and decked terraces, a pergola and raised pond; all while backing onto fields.
Merritts Hill is a quiet residential road on the outskirts of Illogan village. The village is well-served with a primary school, two grocery stores and a post office, a renowned pasty shop, places of worship, two GP surgeries and a public house.
Those who enjoy outdoor pursuits can take advantage of Illogan Woods where a path will take you to the coastal village of Portreath with its beach and harbour, and the 250 acres of protected woodland at Tehidy Country Park within a short drive. Travelling out of The Duchy or overseas is easy with a railway station on the Penzance to London Paddington line in Redruth town, and at Newquay airport which is just over 26 miles distant.
