  • 2/3 bedroom accommodation
  • Lounge/dining room & sunroom

THE LOCATION Linden Lea occupies one of our favourite residential locations on Falmouth's southern side, tucked in behind Swanpool lake and nature reserve and a few minutes' walk from Swanpool Beach and the South West coastal path.

Linden Lea is just over 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.

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.

THE PROPERTY Linden Lea was built in 1953 and has changed hands only twice, most recently in 1984 and since when it has been a much loved and enjoyed home. The property is light, bright and appealing within, although relatively modest in size given its very generous 0.27-acre plot size. The setting at Linden Lea is exceptional, lying within the loveliest of mature and richly stocked gardens where there are, for example, 13 named varieties of Rhododendron and the wonderful establishment that almost 70 years of knowledgeable planting and landscaping can produce. Accommodation provides 2/3 bedrooms, the third suited as a study or dining room perhaps, together with a garden and valley facing lounge/dining room and a sunroom. The fitted kitchen has an original Aga, converted to oil, and a utility room.

Linden Lea has a charm 'as is' but also presents such an opportunity to create much more in this very special position and environment, subject to any necessary consents, of course.
