THE LOCATION Vernon Place is one of our very favourite terraces and addresses, set up above the town and harbourside with the most exciting unobstructed water and coastal views. It is remarkably convenient too, set just a few moments' walk to shops in Church Street and with so much of what delights about Falmouth on its doorstep.
THE PROPERTY Opportunities like this are incredibly rare; to secure a superbly located house overlooking the harbour at a price reflective of a need to repair and refurbish to taste and requirements. Number 15 is a four storey Victorian town house with spectacularly good views from each of its floors and its harbour facing courtyard garden. A substantial spiral staircase links three of the floors and there is much charm and originality within, such as its lovey 'top floor' with beamed and apex ceiling. Accommodation is flexible with two fine 'reception' rooms including a 27' (8.23m) sitting dining room and a 23' (7.01m) kitchen/dining room with aga, each room with outstanding water and coastal views.
Currently boarded, the lower ground floor level can be a third double bedroom or 'living' room, leading out on to the garden which has great scope to create a special outside space with glorious outlook.
This is undoubtedly a project, but an exciting one, with possibilities to create a fabulous four storey Victorian harbour facing home!
