THE LOCATION Fenwick Road is one of the most sought-after residential positions in Falmouth where individual and substantial homes lie in large gardens near the sea. Wayside lies in a fabulous spot on the corner of Fenwick and Spernen Wyn Roads in glorious, 0.31 acre established gardens with views out to sea. Its location is superb, situated on the town's seafront and southern side, a few moments' walk to Gyllyngvase beach and café, and in the other direction to Swanpool Beach, Nature Reserve and the coastal footpath.
Fenwick Road is about half a mile from the town and harbour where there is an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penmere Halt) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro for Exeter and London, Paddington. Falmouth Docks are a major contributor to the town's economy and along with Falmouth University (with campuses in Falmouth and Penryn) and Falmouth Marine School, specialising in traditional and modern boat building, marine engineering and environmental science, ensure an all year-round vibrant community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and another in Penryn as well as highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro.
Falmouth boasts the third deepest natural harbour in the world and is renowned for its maritime facilities which offer some of the best boating and sailing opportunities in the country. Falmouth is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
THE PROPERTY Wayside is a spectacular two storey residence, recently built to replicate the original Arts & Crafts 1920's bungalow once here and first occupied by local bank manager, Mr. W Vaughan Jones.
The replacement has been a 'labour of love' undertaken by its current owners who adored the original's style but soon realised it could not be expanded and configured to create the home they desired.
The new Wayside is an absolute gem, created without expense spared to an inspirational and stylish design and exacting standards with a quality of fitment and finish seldom seen.
This quality extends throughout, with the beauty of an already established and gloriously large garden which has been further planted and fine-tuned so that 'outside' is as lovely and enjoyable as 'in'.
The combination of a superb new home, its garden and seafront setting make this a unique and very exciting opportunity.
