THE LOCATION Madeira Walk is a very special place indeed where a small handful of individual homes lie in large gardens, facing south, overlooking the sea and coast.
Madeira Walk is a less well-known continuation of Boscawen Road. Its private lane access only serves six homes ensuring a relatively traffic free and much more private and secluded setting than is usual along Falmouth's seafront.
We consider Madeira Walk to be the absolute "pick" of Falmouth's seafront addresses; availability here is like "hen's teeth" and we are delighted to be selling this outstanding property. The bay, Swanpool Beach and the coastal footpath are a few moments walk away, accessed along a path from Madeira Walk. Indeed, so much of what is blissful about Falmouth, is right on one's doorstep here, whilst its tucked away position maintains an exclusivity and charm, which we believe, makes it unique.
Madeira Walk is situated on Falmouth's southern side, about ¾ of a mile from the town and harbour, where there is an excellent and varied selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penmere Halt) provide a convenient link to the main line at Truro for Exeter and London Paddington.
Falmouth has a year-round vibrant community, there are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and highly regarded Independent Schools in nearby 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. Falmouth is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
THE PROPERTY The current owners feel fortunate to have lived here very happily for the last 33 years. During this time, they have expanded and "tuned" the property to create the outstanding coastal home it is today.
The original detached bungalow was built around 1960, set in a generous south facing plot of 0.39 acres.
No. 4 presents around 2,000 square feet of incredibly light and bright, well-proportioned accommodation with most rooms overlooking the sea and coast via picture windows. Space is flexible with 3 to 4 bedrooms and 3-4 living rooms, the generous main bedroom with en-suite shower room, in addition to the family bathroom/WC and cloakroom/WC. All is immaculately presented and very well equipped and maintained, the fastidious owners ensuring everything is kept "tip top". The quality and thoughtfulness extend outside and into the garden, which is a glorious and uplifting place to be, full of interest and colour, richly stocked with numerous mature shrubs, plants and small trees. Large paved terraces at the front provide fantastic views and space to relax, entertain and enjoy. A recent and worthwhile addition is the superb conservatory/garden room. All is beautifully established with hedges and boundaries ensuring a private, secluded environment. A gate from Madeira Walk leads onto the tarmac driveway to park and turn, culminating in the garage with its electronic remotely controlled opening. This is an exciting instruction and is highly recommended by Heather and Lay acting as the owner's sole agents.
