  • Bedrooms: 6
Perched above Falmouth's waterfront in a truly exceptional position, enjoying mesmerising views (in two opposite directions) over the constant marine activity within the inner harbour to Flushing, Trefusis Point and the docks and marina, an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a former Seaman s Bethel, converted into an extensive and highly versatile 6 bedroom, 6 bath/shower room home/investment, including a self-contained annexe, breathtaking roof terrace and integral garage. No onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

This fascinating former Seaman s Bethel, we believe, dates back to the 1836 , with many original features of its former use retained despite latter refurbishments in the early 1900 s, including the broad internal stone access stairway, congregant seating and many exposed beams and original joinery. In very recent years, the property has been subject to a vast scheme of sympathetic refurbishments and renovation which include: Replacement heating system, re-modelling of the interior, new wiring and plumbing including a sprinkler system, replacement slate roofing and side elevations, a new kitchen including within the separate annexe, installation of new bath and shower rooms throughout, installation of a roof terrace and dormer window with balcony, and other general upgrades and refitting.

THE LOCATION

'Zawn Haven is situated at the entrance to King Charles Quay, an almost traffic-free location, accessed off Quay Hill, close to the highly regarded Chain Locker Inn on Customs House Quay. Consequently, all harbourside facilities are literally 'on the doorstep' with, at the top of Quay Hill, Falmouth's main street with its excellent selection of shops, commercial facilities, bars, galleries and restaurants, etc. The location is, therefore, ideal for second home owners, holiday makers and permanent residents alike.
