The creation of Bluebells is the culmination and fine tuning of our vendors' many years' experience building outstanding family homes for themselves. We have known them for 30 or more years and have been fortunate to sell several of these homes, but nothing quite like Bluebells. The large garden plot from a neighbouring property was bought from us in 2018 and the original consented design reconfigured to their requirements. Bluebells was then built to exacting standards with no expense spared. The discreet entrance and 100' driveway tucks Bluebells nicely off Budock Vean Lane where all is enclosed by quality timber fencing and reassuringly private. Accommodation is spacious and stylish with the practicality of four double bedrooms, the master with en-suite shower room/WC and dressing room as well as the guest room also with an en-suite shower room/WC. Reception space is outstanding, from the impressive entrance hallway with lantern skylight, to the incredible 44' long living, dining and kitchen. This remarkable open plan area is so well conceived with its 13' high ceiling and subtle division of 'rooms' within. A front & back wood burning stove separates the sitting and dining areas and a worktop and island partially divides the dining area from the kitchen.
The standard of presentation and fitments and finish is first class throughout where the kitchen is extensively fitted and includes an array of NEFF integrated appliances. There are 3 bath/shower rooms, plus a cloakroom/wc off the utility room.
Uplifting that Bluebells flows so beautifully from inside to outside, such as with the triple bi-fold, fully opening doors from the kitchen and dining area, out to the huge natural stone terrace, or the sliding patio doors from the sitting room, out onto the composite decked balconied terrace with access to the garden. Flooring throughout is Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) with ground source heat pump (bore holes) providing pressurised hot water supply and underfloor heating, all rooms digitally thermostatically controlled (Government recycling heat incentive scheme with several years remaining and transferable).
The double garage & workshop has electronic remotely controlled door and great to have internal access from here into the accommodation. The quality at Bluebells extends outside, where all is hard landscaped, planted and maturing beautifully. Opportunities like this are so few and far between, providing the chance to secure an immensely stylish and impressive home in such special surroundings - wholeheartedly recommended.
Budock Vean Lane is an exclusive private driveway of much sought after and individual homes, mostly set in large gardens and some with water frontage to Port Navas Creek. It is a lovely place to live and lies in a convenient, unspoilt and delightful setting where Mawnan Smith village is a few minutes drive away, providing excellent community spirit and good everyday facilities including local shops, primary school, restaurant, café, church and pub. Falmouth's vibrant and thriving harbour town is close at hand with its comprehensive commercial and leisure facilities, whilst the cathedral city of Truro is the administrative centre of Cornwall and offers good private schooling and a mainline rail link to London Paddington. Bluebells is situated just half a mile from Port Navas Creek and three quarters of a mile from the shores of the Helford River at Helford Passage, with its famous Ferry Boat Inn beside the beach. The Helford River is a very special place. Not only is it designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but also a site of Special Scientific Interest and Special Area of Conservation where, uniquely, major environmental groups and organisations including the National Trust come together to protect, monitor and develop the river and its surrounds. The Helford estuary is home to many deep water moorings, Helford River Sailing Club, the thatched Shipwrights pub on the south side of the river and as mentioned the Ferry Boat Inn on the north side. This is an area particularly favoured by the sailing fraternity with excellent facilities, not only at Port Navas creek but also in the Helford River and Falmouth Bay. There is a golf course on one's doorstep at Budock Vean and another at Falmouth together with breath-taking cliff-top walks and safe sandy beaches at Helford Passage, Durgan, Maenporth, Swanpool and Falmouth - all within easy driving distance. Communications to Cornwall have vastly improved over recent years with the A30 dual carriageway just north of Truro giving fast access to the M5 motorway at Exeter. Newquay airport provides regular shuttle flights to London Gatwick, Stanstead and many other European destinations.

Bluebells lies in a delightful third of an acre landscaped garden, formed from part of the very large 'double' plot of neighbouring Mweya. All is beautifully enclosed by quality timber fencing with a discreet entrance leading off Budock Vean Lane onto a 100' (30.48m) plus long driveway, culminating in Bluebells parking area, entrance and garage . All is beautifully conceived and of such quality where the hard landscaping and planting works beautifully, and all is maturing nicely. The private driveway is visually attractive and sets the scene with its granite sett and stabilised chipping base and spotlit borders containing pencil Cyprus, a monkey puzzle tree, plants and bulbs.
