THE LOCATION Sitting proudly on the terrace looking over the town and a few hundred yards back. Being high up there are stunning views over the river to the Carrick Roads, to the castle, to the harbour and out to sea. Walking distance to shops, beaches and schools this is very well located. Falmouth itself 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 half 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 Built in the 1850's and made of stone this family home has been the subject of time effort and expense over the last few years, with large a extension and updating resulting in a very useable home with modern touches while retaining plenty of character. There are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles plus a large single. The top floor room has stunning views and an en-suite facility, and our vendors use this as a guest room (lucky guests!).
The ground floor has three rooms that are open-plan and run from the front to rear and in all are about fifty foot long! Very sociable living space and perfect for modern living. Original floorboards are exposed, and one can only imagine the thousands of feet that have walked these boards over the last 170 years and who the occupants were and what they did. There is a small useful cellar which would be great for a wine collection. The rear garden is quite private and also has a good-sized workshop at the rear.
