  • Bedrooms: 7
Within just 350 yards of Gyllyngvase Beach and Falmouth's picturesque seafront, an imposing, charming 7 double bedroom residence of mock Tudor design, previously utilised as a guest house, yet now the property is a stunning family home which has undergone a significant programme of internal development during our clients' ownership. The property benefits from a large space to the rear of the property, currently utilised as parking, suitable for up to 11 vehicles, with further potential to create garaging or landscaped gardens. Superb views to the rear elevation over Falmouth town centre and toward Falmouth Docks and harbour.

THE PROPERTY

Rarely do we find such impeccably presented accommodation both inside and out, this handsome, mock Tudor semi-detached residence impresses as soon as you pull into the drive. The property has been subjected to an extensive programme of internal development throughout our clients' ownership and now offers superb, immaculately presented accommodation over four storeys with seven double bedrooms, five of which benefit from en-suite facilities. There is further potential to separate part of the basement level to become a self-contained apartment/annexe, perfect for housing a dependant relative, or generate an additional income.

A tiled path leads to the front entrance door which in turn opens into the entrance vestibule. A spacious inner hallway provides a light and welcoming reception area, the large picture window to the side elevation providing much ample light, an elegant turning staircase leads to both the first floor level and basement level. The entrance hall provides access to the impressive living room with period features which include decorative cornicing, high skirting boards and double ceiling height. To the other side of the entrance hall, there is the impressive, recently refurbished, comprehensively fitted kitchen/dining room with Corian worksurfaces and various integrated appliances. Also at ground floor level is a WC and conservatory to the rear elevation.

At first floor level, there is the master suite, an incredible bedroom with deep window seats, two well appointed en-suite shower rooms as well as a large walk-in wardrobe/dressing room. Also at first floor level are two further en-suite double bedrooms.

At second floor level, located within the eaves of the property a double bedroom with en-suite facilities to the front elevation benefits from exposed beamed ceilings and provides access onto a front-facing roof terrace-style balcony. The other bedroom at this level is once again a double, with en-suite facilities and provides superb views to the rear elevation across Falmouth town centre and towards the mouth of the Carrick Roads, incorporating Falmouth Harbour - this bedroom also houses the boiler cupboard.

The lower ground floor level is equally as impressive as the rest of the property and houses a double bedroom, shower room, plant room and laundry room with access also provided to the 'annexe area', which could be separated from the main property, subject to necessary permissions. The annexe area itself houses a double bedroom, open-plan living room/kitchen area, impressively appointed shower room and benefits from its own enclosed courtyard garden.

Externally, there are courtyard gardens allocated to both the annexe area and main residence, both of which are low maintenance areas which benefit from good degrees of privacy. The courtyard garden for the main residence currently houses a hot tub providing any new owner with the opportunity to continue to use this space in the same way or re-landscape to your requirements. To the rear of the property there is extensive space currently utilised for parking which could be landscaped and incorporated into a further area of garden for the property. A useful timber-built workshop is located toward the rear boundary of the property.

THE LOCATION

Avenue Road is a highly desirable location by virtue of its proximity to both Falmouth seafront and town centre. The Fox Rose Hill Gardens, Falmouth town railway station, Gyllyngvase Beach, Gylly Beach Cafe, Queen Mary Gardens and all of the many retail amenities are all within easy walking distance of the property. Picturesque walks along the seafront to Castle Beach and Pendennis Point in one direction and Swanpool Beach and the South West Coast Path in the other are once again within easy walking distance.

The town centre amenities include Events Square, the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth Water Sports Centre and many pubs, restaurants, delis and shopping facilities are close at hand, whilst there is a regular bus and railway service close by. The university campus of Tremough, a satellite campus for Exeter University, is three miles distant, with the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retail, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre is just twelve miles away.
