Few quaint parish halls can boast headline acts such as world-renowned classical guitarist John Williams, 80s diva Toyah Wilcox and comedian Jack Dee – but that is exactly what is happening in the village of Mylor in Cornwall. Resident Steve Hutt, an entertainment industry veteran, recently moved to the village and set up the Mylor Sessions, a series of events showcasing the best in arts, comedy and musical talent.
Nigel Stubbs, director at Jackson-Stops & Staff Truro and a resident of Mylor, said: “Mylor’s celebrity connections provide the icing on the cake for this friendly village that has always been a popular choice for buyers, both with those looking to relocate permanently and those in the market for a holiday home.”
Big name acts are not the only thing that Mylor has to offer; the village, which lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is home to charming pubs, restaurants and bars, while Mylor Harbour provides a natural backdrop for a range of water sports. The towns of Falmouth and Truro are also within easy reach, with notable attractions including Pendennis Castle and the National Maritime Museum slightly further afield.
Jackson-Stops & Staff Truro have a number of properties for sale in Mylor, including Rivers Edge, which as the name suggests, is a contemporary property situated just 30 metres from the head of the creek.Timber clad in the ‘New England’ style, the house has a full width veranda and balcony, which affords splendid views across the creek and village itself. Internally, the styling is clean and contemporary, with three well proportioned bedrooms, one with a Juliet balcony. The property is situated on Trevellan Road, widely regarded as one of Mylor’s most sought after residential addresses with several south-facing waterside properties. The property is on the market for £595,000, for more information, click here.
New to the market, Mill Leat is a highly individual family home dating from 1960 which has been extended and tastefully updated over the past few years. Like Rivers Edge, Mill Leat enjoys a veranda porch as well as a decked roof terrace on the above the garage which offers clear creek views. Internally, the property is spacious and bright thanks to large windows, also benefiting from solar water heating and recent double glazing throughout. The property is on the market for £650,000, for more information, click here.
Of note, the office have also recently sold 11 Lemon Hill Gardens, an attractive cottage with views over the village and to the countryside beyond, as well as Trevavon House, a spacious five bedroom property with direct river frontage.
