THE PROPERTY A rare and exciting opportunity for those searching for a 'live-in' lifestyle that is truly individual and very "Falmouth". This particularly attractive Grade II listed property is set across three storeys with a commercial space to the ground floor and maisonette to the first and second. Great the access is separate so each can be used independently of the other. The shop has a pretty windowfrontage with offset doorway from the High Street where within are two room areas, leading out via French doors to the rear courtyard and a WC.
Access to the maisonette is via a covered passageway which also leads to the lovely Carnes Cottage beyond. The passage draws you away from the hustle and bustle of the town to a South facing and sheltered area, a lower terrace and balcony, where French doors lead into the accommodation. All is stylish and bright within, set over two floors plus the lovely attic room which the current owners use as their vaulted ceiling bedroom. The 'lower' level comprises a contemporary fitted kitchen facing South and leads through French doors on to the balcony. The bedroom is on this level (currently used as a dining room). The central turning staircase leads up into the living room which delights with its large 12 pane sash window, exposed wooden floorboards and woodburning stove. From here the ladder stairs leads up to the attic room and to a doorway into the bathroom. This is memorably large and bright with its South facing 12 pane obscure glazed window. All is comfortable too, with a Worcester gas fired boiler fuelling radiatior central heating and hot water supply.
To the rear is an enclosed, South facing courtyard perfect for enjoying that sunny evening to relax after a day's work doing what you love in the shop below! This is one of those individual properties we get excited to present to the market and discuss with people, a wonderful chance for the discerning buyer.
THE LOCATION Located on Falmouth's historic High Street with so much that is enjoyable and fun on its doorstep, a real up and coming part of town with a 'buzz' thanks to the independent and eclectic mixture of superb places to eat and drink (The Star & Garter and Stones' Bakery to name a couple) as well as interesting galleries, shops for antiques, vintage books and records and so much more. A few steps down the High Street takes you to the Prince of Wales Pier and easy foot ferry access to Flushing and St Mawes, whilst 'The Moor' with its shops, regular markets and events is just moments away. Falmouth is renowned for its beautiful period buildings and wonderful sailing waters; a true sailors town and famed for its many festivals and regattas, the town also has a stunning South facing bay with promenade and three nearby beaches Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth. It is little wonder then that Falmouth is voted as the 'Number 1 place to live in the Southwest' in the prestigious Sunday Times guide.
