THE PROPERTY Between 1861 and 1881 Falmouth flourished as its population grew by nearly 30%. The docks were built in 1860 and the railway arrived in 1863 opening up Falmouth to tourists. By the time Cambridge Place was built in 1880, Falmouth had become a bustling, thriving town and the 9 prominent residences here, including its incredibly ornate centerpiece, would have been occupied by the most prosperous and well to do of Falmouth, including ship owners and Captains.
Today, this elegant and well-kept terrace is little changed externally, although most have been converted and divided within, to spacious apartments and maisonettes.
No. 2 is so scarce as it remains intact, as an outstanding double fronted family house. It is a spectacularly good example where this delightful home effortlessly blends what so many require of a desirable period family home, with its elegant and spacious proportions, comfort, originality and style. Four prominent rooms have wide front facing triple sash bay windows looking into the Cambridge Place collectively owned garden, these include the fine drawing and dining rooms as well as three of the four bedrooms, one with luxurious en-suite shower room.
There is a further sitting room as well as a strikingly stylish rear extension, likely to become the hub of the home; incorporating a fabulous contrasting matt white and matt black kitchen with quartz worktops, this 'family' room overlooks and flows effortlessly into the walled rear garden.
The hall, staircase and landing areas impress, as does the wonderful original attic room, over 27' long, with its dormer window and beamed apex ceiling. This area has such scope as a studio, a work from home office, or indeed to create another stunning bedroom suite if desired.
Quality, space and comfort are all so evident at No.2 and this continues outside into the level and walled rear garden which enjoys summer sunshine for much of the day. Here, double gates open from the rear lane to allow off road and secure parking space for a large vehicle.
No. 2 Cambridge Place is undoubtedly one of the most exceptional and impressive houses of its type that we have seen for a very longtime.. If you require and appreciate the best, we urge you to act without hesitation!
