THE PROPERTY Four or five bedrooms are on offer at this fabulous family home. Versatile accommodation and symmetrical wings either side of an impressive entrance hall which is so typical of the architect. (for those unaware of the respect and admiration Cornelius deigned houses have please search the name on Google). Many period feature have survived the 85 years and it's lovely to see the original door handles and internal stain glass windows. American oak strip flooring is in evidence throughout and it retains that deep red colour that only quality can provide. Quite a few of the rooms lead out to a large and raised terrace where the sun has unrestricted access. The bedroom on the first floor, with its en-suite will be bound to cause an argument over who gets it because the sea view is quite impressive from this lofty position. There are many reasons to fall in love with Clovergate but it can only be truly admired by viewing.
THE LOCATION Tresahar Road is one of our very favourite Falmouth addresses. It is much sought after for its superb situation on the town's southern side, a short distance from the seafront, Swanpool and Gyllyngvase beaches and the coastal footpath.
Tresahar 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 and vibrant community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro.
Falmouth boasts the third largest 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.
