  • Bedrooms: 4
One of Falmouth's finest period homes, Grade II Listed, constructed circa 1840 in Georgian-style, providing fastidiously maintained, stylishly updated and faultlessly presented 4 bedroom accommodation with elegant reception rooms, many authentic period features and, to the rear, a surprisingly large, beautifully landscaped, superbly stocked, highly private and extremely sunny garden.

THE PROPERTY

'Kimberley House' is, undoubtedly, one of Falmouth's finest homes, built c. 1840 in Georgian-style, with elegant stucco-fronted elevations, original 12-pane sash windows, and a pilastered central doorway with granite steps, panelled reveals and an original 6-panel door opening into the stunning 'Homes and Gardens' interior.

Retaining a wealth of authentic period features, including tall ceilings, moulded cornices, exposed mellow pine flooring, marble fireplaces, window shutters and high skirtings etc, now complemented by contemporary high quality fittings, 'Kimberley House' provides the epitome of modern period home living, with the convenience of Falmouth's excellent amenities 'on the doorstep'.

To the rear of the house one then finds an unexpectedly large garden, which is superbly stocked, extremely sunny, sheltered and private, and beautifully landscaped to provide 3 broad terraces accessed from both ground and first floor levels.

With Kimberley Park 'around the corner', and The Moor just 350 yards away, the town's shops, schools, quayside bars, restaurants and leisure amenities are all within walking distance. Indeed, it is difficult to think of a better property to enjoy the quality of life which Falmouth, regularly voted as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK, can provide. We, the vendors' Sole Agent, therefore look forward to hearing from those prospective purchasers interested in this stunning family home.
