Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Occupying a prime position on one of Falmouth's most sought-after harbour-facing terraces, an exceptional 4-bedroomed house, extensively and sympathetically refurbished, retaining much original charm and character, with deep and attractively landscaped rear gardens and all front-facing rooms benefiting from panoramic views which encompass the town and harbour, from Trefusis Point to the port area, Pendennis Castle, National Maritime Museum, deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, shoreline of the Roseland Peninsula, St Mawes Castle, mouth of the Percuil River and St Anthony's Headland - one of the finest, most diverse and active views available from any property in the town!

THE PROPERTY

Constructed, we understand, circa 1860, Harbour Terrace, as the name implies, enjoys a quite exceptional view which spans the entire breadth of Falmouth's inner harbour from the town's active waterfront, to the picturesque village of Flushing and unspoilt countryside which surrounds the deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads (Fal Estuary).

Wrought iron railings and sash windows form an elegant facade, with double casement entrance doors opening into an entrance lobby and deep reception hall. The reception rooms have been opened-up and both with exposed pitch pine flooring. Benefiting from both original windows and some replacement double glazed sash windows, a modern gas fired central heating system, recently refitted kitchen, bathroom, en-suite and separate WC, the house retains much original charm and character, with open fireplaces and traditional sash and casement windows which, with considered decor throughout, creates a home of much natural warmth and light.

The rear-facing reception rooms and kitchen overlook and open onto a pretty paved walled courtyard, with granite steps rising to a well enclosed lawned rear garden with large patio and broad double doors leading directly from the master bedroom suite.

In all, a fine town house on one of Falmouth's most sought-after terraces and we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.

THE LOCATION

Harbour Terrace is one of very few locations within the port of Falmouth where open views of the harbour can be enjoyed, with the town's excellent retail, commercial and leisure amenities within just a few moments walk.

A short walk along neighbouring Erisey Terrace and down Webber Hill leads almost directly into the town centre, which runs parallel with the harbourside which contains a bustling and diverse range of craft from dinghies to an increasing number of visiting cruise liners. Active sailing and rowing clubs provide facilities for water sports enthusiasts of all abilities, with the sheltered waters of Falmouth Harbour, Fal Estuary and Falmouth Bay widely recognised as perhaps the best in the country.

Falmouth town boasts an excellent and cosmopolitan range of restaurants, quayside bars and galleries, all of which are within a few minutes walk of the property. Other notable leisure amenities include the National Maritime Museum, Events Square, sub-tropical gardens, safe bathing beaches, sports clubs and breathtaking walks around Pendennis Point and along the South West Coast Path to the neighbouring beaches of Swanpool, Maenporth and beyond.

The cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre, is approximately twelve miles distant and is readily accessed by bus and rail services from Falmouth, as well as by boat, along the River Fal, departing from nearby Prince of Wales Pier.
