THE LOCATION Perched on the hill, a few streets away from the water, on the ever popular Greenbank side of Falmouth. Beacon Cottages is a lesser known row of Victorian town houses that are close to town and water with a surprising level of peacefulness and tranquility. So much of what delights about Falmouth is on one's doorstep at this location. The waterside is a few moments away as is the High Street with its individual shops and galleries, whilst The Boathouse, Star & Garter, or more up market Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and Greenbank Hotel are one's 'locals'. The town has a brilliant and diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of shops, which include national chains, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent.
Falmouth's seafront, on the town's southern side, is about a mile away, with sandy beaches, Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle and access to incredible walks and scenery along the South West Coastal Path. 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; little wonder the town is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
THE PROPERTY Number 3 is a delightful semi-detached town house with much to please!
This Victorian residence enjoys a commanding position at the top of the hill looking down to the harbour and enjoying dock, castle and sea views from all of the front facing rooms. Set back from the road with a lovely South/East facing front garden which screens from the road and provides a pleasant morning sun outside space to enjoy. To the rear is a surprisingly large garden given this town centre position which enjoys the later afternoon and evening sun, laid with lawn, two patios, large timber shed and very useful rear access. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a cosy lounge with wood burner to the front of the house, second reception room to the middle suiting a dining area which then adjoins the kitchen to the rear - a high ceiling light and airy space with door accessing the shower room and WC with further door to the garden. The wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall and turns on to the generous first floor landing (perhaps with room for a further staircase to a loft conversion?) which then provides access to the two double bedrooms and single currently utilised as a study. The house has masses of character at every turn including picture rails, high skirting, cast iron fireplaces, original stained glass inner front door and a beautifully kept Cornish range cooker in the kitchen a lovely feature.
You can probably tell that we love this house and we think any lucky new owner will too. Available to buy with no onward chain concerns, this is an opportunity not to be missed!
