Melvill Road, Falmouth


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
An imposing detached Victorian house, exemplifying quality and style throughout, providing 3 double bedroom accommodation with 2 en-suites, versatile semi open-plan living areas including a superb conservatory overlooking the exotic rear garden. Ample driveway parking and a 34' deep attached garage provides ample storage with internal access.


Rarely do we find such impeccably presented accommodation inside and out, this handsome detached house has been subject to a comprehensive yet sympathetic refurbishment and modernisation in recent years, and will particularly appeal to those wishing to simply move in to a stylish period home near to the town centre and seafront, without the need for any refurbishment at all.

Just a few of the features within this comprehensive restoration project include: quality double glazed sash windows, oak floors, high quality fully fitted kitchen with island unit/breakfast bar, large sun room/conservatory extension with deep beamed roof, much restored and bespoke joinery and plaster work including architraves and picture rails, bespoke shutter blinds, restored fireplaces, luxuriously appointed bathrooms, including a master en-suite.

Ample gated driveway parking to the front provides space for approximately four vehicles, together with the recently constructed deep attached garage which provides a further two spaces, with convenient internal access door to the accommodation. To the rear, the garden is exquisite, comprising a mass of colourful, mature and expertly planted, specimen plants and shrubs, with winding pathways and pond. The mature borders provide complete privacy.


A short walk along Melvill Road leads to Foxes Lane, at the foot of which a picturesque walk through The Dell leads to Falmouth town railway halt, beyond which is Events Square, the harbourside and town centre. Neighbouring Fenwick Road and Gyllyngvase Hill provide direct and easy access to Gyllyngvase Beach, and Gylly Beach Cafe, with the South West Coast Path continuing across the seafront in one direction, and towards Swanpool, Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River in the other.
