THE PROPERTY This fine Victorian town house has been much loved and fine-tuned during the last thirty or more years of its current family's ownership. There are no pretentions here, just a comfortable house that feels 'right' the moment you step inside.
Proportions are good and comfortable with four bedrooms and separate sitting and dining rooms which interconnect via double doors. The stylish kitchen leads out via French doors to a courtyard and the garden.
The large, family bath and shower room is a beaut, set off the half landing and complete with a claw foot standalone bath. The four bedrooms lie on the next two floors: two good doubles and a single on the first and up to a beautifully conceived attic conversion beyond. This lovely regulation compliant area was conceived and created in 1998 by the architect owner, providing a wonderful space ideal as a bedroom, or indeed with its large front facing dormer window, an inspired office or studio.
The South facing landscaped garden is a treat, measuring about 80' (24.38m) deep with a double-parking bay at its end.
THE LOCATION Bar Terrace is much sought after by discerning home hunters appreciative of its remarkable position where fine period properties lie so near to the seafront & beaches, and the town & harbourside.
The location is possibly as central as can be found, with so much of what excites about Falmouth on one's doorstep. There is the convenience of Event's Square and Tesco Metro Express just a couple of minutes' walk away which is open 7 days a week as is the 'early til late' shop and Post Office at the end of Bar Road. Falmouth has a 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 Docks) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro for Exeter and London, Paddington. 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. The town is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
