Terraced House


3 Bedroom Terraced House for sale in FALMOUTH

This delightful late 1800's terraced townhouse has been transformed by a superb and sympathetic two storey green oak framed extension to its rear, providing three good bedrooms and shower room/WC upstairs and a sociable arrangement of separate sitting room and 'family' kitchen/dining room downstairs, flowing via French doors to a 50' plus deep south facing rear garden with studio. An engaging near town and harbour position with water views from the first floor.

Key Features:

  • Skilfully extended late 1800's townhouse
  • Moments from Town & harbourside
  • 3 Good bedrooms
  • Sitting room
  • Family kitchen/dining room
  • Shower room/WC up & downstairs
  • South facing courtyard garden with studio
  • An outstanding townhouse

THE PROPERTY & LOCATION Chapel terrace sits a few hundred yards from town and harbourside, in a popular spot with so much of what Falmouth has to offer, on its doorstep. No 4 is an extraordinary house which has been seamlessly and sympathetically expanded and transformed by a striking green oak framed, two storey extension to its rear.

All is good quality yet simple within, providing a bright, well proportioned and very 'liveable' three bedroomed interior which flows and communicates beautifully with the south facing rear courtyard and garden.

There is an undoubted charm within where downstairs, for example, the superb old pitch pine parquet floor was sourced from a Cornish Primary School. Number 4 is practical and comfortable with a shower room/WC up and downstairs.

Green oak was prevalent as a means of construction during the middle ages. Here it combines the traditional method of using oak pegged Mortice & Tennon joints with modern building practices to create something special and energy efficient.

This is a hugely appealing and individual home in the heart of Falmouth - rare and wholeheartedly recommended.
