THE PROPERTY The properties on Shelburne Road's southern side are really rather special, tucked away along a no-through road yet accessible to town, station and beaches. What we love is their generous spacing and that their large rear streamside gardens face South with greenbelt woods lying beyond. Number 39 is an individual detached bungalow, lying in an unusually generous plot measuring about 120' deep x 45' wide, overall. Inside are three bedrooms, a living room, kitchen/breakfast room and a shower room/WC. All is comfortable and well equipped with UPVC double glazed windows and doors and gas fired radiator central heating.
Great having a driveway to park several cars in tandem, through a gate to the rear with further hardstanding, a carport and detached single garage.
The lawned garden and a pathway leads through a gate to the calming streamside terrace and woodland beyond, alive with bird song when visiting in early February.
This is a rare chance to find a home in such a good setting - highly recommended!
THE LOCATION Shelburne Road is located on the outskirts of Falmouth, in an area of much lower density of housing and larger gardens than is the norm today. Shelburne Road is 'off the beaten track' yet a leisurely and short stroll to the nearby shops, bus stops and Penmere Halt train station. The local garage and 'early 'til late' Co-op are ones' excellent 'Corner Shops' and two Primary Schools are close by.
Falmouth is a thriving and vibrant town with an eclectic mixture of independent and national shops, many galleries showcasing local art and crafts and an excellent and varied selection of places to eat and drink. Events Square and the National Maritime Museum regularly host activities and events throughout the year including Falmouth Classics, Falmouth Week and the Oyster and Sea Shanty festivals. Falmouth seafront faces south over the Bay with sandy beaches and access to the South West coastal path leading back to Swanpool near to the house. No wonder then, that Falmouth is consistently voted in the top five favourite places to live in the UK.
