THE PROPERTY Built by renowned local builders Grey Connelly circa 1970 and therefore offering larger rooms and garden than more modern housing stock. Built from block rather than the wooden framed houses favoured by todays developers, the property feels very substantial and full of natural light. There are patio areas to enjoy the sun (when we finally see some sun…..) and a decked veranda wraps around two sides of the house looking over the large garden. On the ground floor there is a kitchen that is in an extension, perfectly useable and a good size but quite tired and most buyers will likely update it to their own style. Just off the kitchen is a dining room which leads through to where the original "front door" was and where stairs lead to the first floor. Also on the ground floor is a bathroom and very nice sitting room with French doors out to the veranda and rear garden.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two of the bedrooms are doubles plus a single that is currently used as an office. The master bedroom has widows on two elevations with a far distant sea view from the front window. Our vendor has built an en-suite into one corner that fits perfectly and is very nicely thought out.
Outside, the garden is to the front and side and being a corner plot, it is larger than normal. Mainly laid to lawn and bounded by high fencing and mature planting of rhododendron and palms. A single garage has off-road parking in front plus pedestrian access on the side. There are also three small sheds in the garden.
THE LOCATION 'Boslowick' is a popular residential area located on Falmouth's' outskirts about 3/4 miles from the town and harbourside with excellent local shops including the new Co-op, just moments away. Two primary schools, Boslowick garage and Penmere railway station are within 1/2 mile and a bus service runs regularly along the road, to town, the seafront and facilities.
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. Falmouth is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
ACCOMMODATION IN DETAIL (ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE) Once through the high pedestrian gate, the main entrance now is through the kitchen (as that is located in an extension to the side).

GARAGE 17' 10" x 10' (5.44m x 3.05m) A single garage but larger than most (lots of single garages are two foot smaller in width and makes getting in and out of the car difficult).
