Terraced House


5 Bedroom Terraced House for sale in FALMOUTH

Elegant 1800's town house requiring restoration, set along one of Falmouth's finest residential terraces, currently divided into three self-contained flats but equally suited to revert as one spectacular family home. Extensive accommodation over three floors with harbour and coastal views and notable originality and fine period detailing. Sheltered, south facing courtyard and little garden. Small garage and store. A unique opportunity.

Key Features:

  • Prime residential road
  • Substantial period house
  • Currently split into 3 flats
  • Or restore to superb family house
  • Extensive accommodation over 3 floors
  • Harbour & coastal views
  • South facing rear courtyard garden
  • 5 minutes walk to town/harbour & three quarters of a mile to seafront/beaches

THE PROPERTY This is a terrace of high standing, built for Falmouth's well to do, where homes seldom become available and cause quite a stir when they do. Believed to have been built around 1830, on the cusp of the Georgian and Victorian eras, this terrace of fine parapet roofed houses provide a scale, elegance and a depth of character so hard to find.

Wonderful to have this size where three flats have been comfortably created within, yet it is not past the point of no return, and one can easily envision its restoration and return to one fabulous large family house.

There is such interest and originality at Number 11 with ceiling cornicing, for example, that is as fine and ornate as one is likely to see. Accommodation is on three levels with views to harbour, coast and sea from the first and attic floors. A second rear staircase leads to a vaulted ceiling room with mezzanine; a space ideal perhaps as studio or work from home office.

Downstairs leads out into an enclosed sheltered south facing rear courtyard, up granite steps to a little walled garden, orientated to enjoy summer sunshine for much of the day. There is roller door access into a small garage/store and scope too for provision of an off-road parking space, subject to any necessary consents.

This is a terrific, ripe to restore opportunity, like we so seldom see: a house of great charm and versatility that we are excited to be selling.

THE LOCATION Clare Terrace is one of Falmouth's most desired residential spots where these substantial town houses sit prominently up above the town and harbourside. Number 11 is so convenient for accessing all that is lovely about Falmouth with pathways meandering from here, down to the town and harbourside, whilst the seafront and beaches are less than a mile away. The local 'Provedore' café/tapas bar is inspirational and nearby 'Sea View Inn' is a must. Junior and secondary schooling facilities are nearby at King Charles and Trescobeas, and many faculties of the Combined University of Cornwall are within a few minutes walk along Woodlane. Convenience stores are close by at Albany Road, regular bus services lead onto The Moor and nearby railway station at The Dell and Penmere provides a direct link to the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retail, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre.
