THE PROPERTY 14 Lansdowne is an absolute gem; built in 1870 to a design we think is unique in Falmouth and where its four storeys of accommodation present such character, originality and appeal.
Here, we have a remarkable blend of valuable attributes with its elegant & spacious interior providing great flexibility and scope for the larger family.
Depending upon owners' preference there are four bedrooms and three living rooms, including a superb lower ground floor, 20' x 19' kitchen/dining and living room, likely to become the social hub of the house. This area leads via French doors out into a good sized and established rear garden.
Views to the rear overlook harbour, Flushing and coast and are especially impressive from the attic bedroom four with its two dormer windows. Equally this would make a fantastic studio or office space. All is well equipped, light, bright and practical within where there are two bath/shower rooms and 3 WCs. There is much storage space throughout, a utility room and a useful small garage/workshop accessible from within.
14 lies in a good sized plot and garden, nicely set back from the road and with a paved driveway to park 2 cars off road.
This is a fabulous house in a great location - we wholeheartedly recommend an early appointment to view.
