THE LOCATION We love Margaret Place for its remarkable convenience, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of town traffic, yet so accessible on foot to the town and harbourside in one direction, and being set on the seaward side of Western Terrace, to the Swanpool Nature Reserve and beach, in the other. the position is very much 'non-estate' where King Charles and Marlborough primary schools are both a leisurely ten minute walk away, as is the excellent and nearby early 'til late Co-op at Boslowick.
THE PROPERTY These fine homes at Margaret place are understood to have been built in the early 1950s for the managers at the then thriving Falmouth Dockyard, owned by Silley Cox & Co. The current owners bought Number 9 from us about 20 years ago and have absolutely loved it, bringing up a family here, extending , adapting and improving to their requirements. This is an absolute gem whose spaciousness and flexibility might not be apparent from a cursory look.
Accommodation is arranged on two levels with an adaptable interior able to provide four bedrooms and two reception rooms if required, or three and three if this suits. A recent extension to the rear provides a fantastic and very social, recently fitted kitchen through to a south facing dining/living room, likely to become the social hub of the house. French doors from here lead into the garden.
Room sizes are very comfortable with two good double bedrooms upstairs, one en suite, and one or two doubles downstairs. All is light and bright and well equipped with a very pleasing mid century feel blending so nicely with modern comfort and stylish touches. windows are UPVC double glazed and a gas boiler provides radiator central heating and hot water supply.
The garden is a real joy; south facing and wonderfully established with open outlook over the valley. Its a really good size too, offering relative privacy, a shed and greenhouse plus garage and garden stores. The drive provides parking space for two/three cars. This is a great house with a genuinely rare blend of attributes - whole heartedly recommended!
