Built, we understand, in the 1920's on this highly regarded road close to Falmouth Hospital and schooling, an intriguing, detached, individual house, of striking architecture, substantially refurbished and improved by the present owners over the last 10 years, now providing 3 bedroom, 3 bath/shower room accommodation with exceptional living areas and immense charm and quality throughout. Enjoying far-reaching views from the rear and with garaging, additional private off-road parking and large, beautifully stocked and extremely sheltered gardens.

THE PROPERTY

Built, we understand, in the 1920's to a striking design, 31 Trescobeas Road occupies a highly convenient, yet almost hidden position off this highly regarded road, close to Falmouth Hospital and secondary school, and within an approximate ten minute walk of The Moor and town centre.

An electronic gate opens onto a broad tarmac parking area, sufficient for three vehicles, adjacent to which is the detached double garage, with electronic roller door and light and power connected. Steps and a pathway then lead through profusely stocked front gardens, which contain main sub-tropical plants, and where a summerhouse with decking has been sited - ideal as a studio or home office etc.

Benefiting from full gas fired central heating and replacement double glazing, mainly in high quality aluminium, the property provides an extremely attractive balance of original charm with a more contemporary open-plan layout, which provides large living/entertaining areas which open into bay windows and a stunning conservatory which, in turn, open onto the broad and extremely sunny, south west-facing rear terracing.

Upstairs, the master bedroom features an en-suite shower room, dressing lobby and Juliet balcony, with two further bedrooms served by an attractively appointed family bathroom/WC. A third bath/shower room on the ground floor, situated close to the side entrance, is ideal for visitors and those returning from a day in the garden or out on the boat.

The rear gardens are a particular feature of the property, being extremely deep, well enclosed to all sides, highly sheltered and, again, enjoy the sunny south westerly aspect.

In all, a superb family home in this, one of the South West's most sought-after locations.
