3 Bedroom Semi-Detached House for sale in FALMOUTH
Elmscott is full of surprises, located in a very desirable road close to the town shops and with that rare bonus of off-road parking. From the front the property looks like a semi-detached bungalow in need of an uplift but all is revealed at the rear where steps lead down to two extra rooms and a secure rear garden. Elmscott would make for a nice family home.

THE PROPERTY This property is perfectly liveable "as is" but the new owner may decide to give the property a bit of an uplift and modernise it to become a lovely family home. We would highly recommend that you remove the wall between the kitchen and dining room to make a very nice sociable area to cook and dine, with windows on two sides this room would be very bright and give far reaching views across the town rooftops.
There is a utility room down the stairs at the rear that is "under" the house (the house, like most in a seaside town is built into the hill so it looks like a bungalow at the front and a house from the rear). Along with the utility room is another bedroom that would make a perfect teen/guest room or home office as it has en-suite facilities and can be accessed without entering the main home.
To the front is a garden with off-road parking for one car but with the usual consent further parking could be made. To the rear is an enclosed grassed garden that gives nice views over town.
This property has so much to offer and being priced to sell I'm sure most buyers will see the potential here.
