THE LOCATION Sparnon, on the edge of Budock Water has been a working and living hamlet and small community for many centuries with reference to Sparnon in the 1300s and shown on the Burghley Map C1590. Now a collection of four dwellings, reached along a leafy lane, Sparnon provides convenience of access to the village and Falmouth, whilst preserving a sense of the unspoilt and a peacefulness which is often lost today.

Budock Water has a population of about 1200 with an active community and good everyday facilities which include a pub, Anglican church, shop, numerous clubs, societies and a bus service.

Sparnon is located about 1/2 mile from the village centre and 2 miles from Falmouth and the sea. The Helford River is about 5 miles and Truro city is 12 miles away.

Sparnon lies in a special and private position within the hamlet, facing south overlooking its own garden and grounds, through Budock valley and out to the sea in the distance.

The location of Sparnon is exceptional, all the more so when its convenience to Falmouth town, the harbourside and coast is considered, with some of the loveliest sailing waters and scenery on one's doorstep.


Sparnon is a former farmhouse which has been painstakingly restored to exacting standards. The restoration has incorporated a spectacular extension of the original, cleverly expanding the old with a recent and stunning contemporary two storey addition that works so well. The interior is elegant and spacious where its Victorian origins have been respected and enhanced, providing flexible four-bedroom accommodation with four reception rooms. There is not a 'poor relation' among them; each bedroom is a double, two have superb tiled en-suites and the main has a dressing area and fabulous shower room beside and a glorious outlook to valley and sea via French windows. Living space is impressive with bay window sitting and dining rooms, a drawing room and superb kitchen/breakfast and living room, likely to become the social hub of the home. This uplifting space opens outside via two sets of multi-folding doors where this porcelain tiled terrace becomes a seamless extension of the room.

From a practical view, there is a utility room, a boot room and cloakroom downstairs, together with the two en-suites and a no expense spared sumptuous family bath/shower room upstairs. All is decorated with style in neutral colour schemes with quality carpeting and immaculate presentation.

An oil-fired boiler fuels radiator central heating and constant pressurized, hot water supply, some porcelain tiled floors are under-heated and 5kw woodburning stoves provide comfort and cosiness that only real fires can.

The gardens at Sparnon are a joy, just under an acre in size, private and full of establishment and interest. Some areas are more formal, others such as the copse, wonderfully natural whilst the huge terrace provides the perfect south facing space on which to relax, entertain and enjoy. 'Outbuildings' include a recent pitch roof double garage, and charming old stone building, aluminium greenhouse and a tractor shed.

In our opinion Sparnon has it all and it will be a very fortunate new owner picking up keys on completion day.
