  • Bedrooms: 6
A most charming, detached and highly individual house, full of character and interesting features, situated on this, one of Falmouth's most sought-after residential roads, just a few minutes' walk from the seafront, Events Square and harbourside, providing extremely versatile 5/6 bedroom, 3 bath/shower room and 2/3 reception room accommodation, with well stocked gardens to both front and rear, off-road parking, harbour views and an adaptable integral annexe, ideal for a dependent relative or source of letting income etc.

THE PROPERTY

'Cromwell Cottage' dates, we understand, from the 1870's and is situated in one of Falmouth's most convenient and sought-after locations, within just a few minutes' walk of the seafront and Castle Beach in one direction, and Events Square, the Maritime Museum, harbourside and town centre in the other.

Set back from the roadside with attractively stocked and landscaped front gardens, with off-road parking and space for a garage if required (subject to consents), 'Cromwell Cottage' is currently configured to provide two reception rooms, five/six bedrooms (one currently a study), and three bath/shower rooms, in addition to which the integral one bedroom annexe could easily be reincorporated into the main accommodation if required.

Features include oak and timber flooring, traditional panelled doors, open fireplaces, a superb semi open-plan kitchen and living room with log-burner and doors onto the rear garden, contemporary white sanitary ware throughout, gas fired central heating and supplementary Photovoltaic solar panelling providing a substantial yearly income, the last year being c. £1,800.

The accommodation is both extensive and versatile with the annexe bedroom being an interconnecting room, which easily reverts to a third reception room, the present owner having used the annexe for both rental income as well as a comfortable and secure home for a dependent relative. Upstairs, bedroom six is ideal for continued use as a study, bedroom two could readily incorporate a further en-suite if required (subject to consents) and, on the top floor, there is a magnificent suite (with part limited head height) which, in particular, enjoys the extremely interesting views over the town and harbour. Attractively stocked, sunny and highly private rear gardens complete the scene.

An early viewing appointment is unhesitatingly recommend by Laskowski & Company, the vendor's Sole Agent.
