THE PROPERTY This uplifting three storey Grade II listed town house is an unusual find where its flexible accommodation is packed with charm and originality and light floods in through its southerly rear aspect.

There are three double bedrooms, the superb top floor main room partially vaulted to a flexible mezzanine area and arch window views over rooftops to the river and Falmouth. The middle floor bay window sitting room with 9' 6" (2.9m) high corniced ceiling has an open fireplace, whilst on the ground floor is a sociable arrangement of fitted kitchen stepped up to a dining area with wood burning stove.

What is not apparent from the roadside view is its long and partially old walled rear courtyard garden which enjoys a sunny aspect for the best part of the day and where at its end, is a very old stone building reputedly the old Penryn jail house - potentially useful and certainly a talking point!

THE LOCATION This fine house is set in the heart of Penryn within easy walking distance of all the amenities on the High Street.

Penryn is an historic and ancient market town with an active community and good everyday facilities including nursery, primary and secondary schools. The town enjoys good communication with Falmouth via its bus service and train station, which links to Truro city and mainline Paddington. Penryn is enjoying something of a renaissance being the home of the University of Cornwall which incorporates Dartington College and also of the regeneration and development of Penryn's inner Harbour and Harbour village. Penryn College is a huge asset to the town, with its excellent reputation and strong facilities. Falmouth town (approximately 2 miles) provides comprehensive shopping, schooling, business and leisure facilities.

The house is just a few moments from town and near the riverside and the site of the former 13th century Glasney College.
