THE PROPERTY It is a joy to be selling a house like this, where there is a charm and honesty that shines through but certainly no pretention. We also love its relatively traffic light, no through road position, where one is a few moments' walk from town.
The house is perfectly liveable 'as is' but we suggest most prospective buyers will budget to uplift and modernise to some degree. Accommodation is arranged over three floors, the 'top' living room with great views over rooftops to harbour and coastline. The 'middle' floor is a kitchen/breakfast room with a fireplace and exposed floorboards, leading down to the double bedroom, bathroom and an 'extra' room suited as a utility or workshop perhaps.
The present owners have loved their house and here begins a brilliant chance for its next chapter to begin.
THE LOCATION Honey Cottage is believed to have been built in about 1890 by the widow of the Borough surveyor, on land previously covered by bee hives and flowers, above her house on New Street.
Gyllyng Street is a lovely old no though road, tucked above and just a few minutes' walk from Church Street, the town and waterfront.
The position is relatively traffic free but convenient, where so much of what delights about Falmouth is on one's doorstep. Falmouth town and harbourside has an eclectic mixture of national shops and independents, together with galleries showcasing local arts and crafts, as well as great places to eat and drink. The Events Square has created a new vibrancy to the harbourside and is a remarkable success, with its quality food, fashion and sailing wear shops. The square hosts events throughout the year, such as the Oyster Festival, the celebrations of Falmouth Week and the Sea Shanty Festival as well as many big name attractions.
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.
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.
