Bedrooms: 4
Situated on this, one of Falmouth's most sought-after residential roads by virtue of the nature of its Victorian houses and close proximity to both the seafront and beaches in one direction, and harbourside and town centre in the other, a charming semi-detached house, providing sympathetically updated and extended 4 bedroom accommodation, arranged over 3 storeys. Ample private off-road parking is provided on a large gravelled forecourt to the front of the property, with well enclosed, sunny, beautifully stocked and attractively landscaped gardens to the side and rear providing numerous sheltered outside sitting and dining areas. From the top floor, panoramic views are enjoyed over the town and harbour to Flushing, Trefusis Point, the deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

THE PROPERTY

Level access from the forecourt leads through an entrance porch with authentic arched door, into a hallway with staircase rising to a part galleried landing over. There is a useful ground floor cloakroom/WC and, to the front of the house, the cosy south-facing lounge features a log-burner, shuttered windows and painted timber flooring. To the rear, an extension provides a superb, family sized and highly versatile living room, dining area and kitchen, all with oak flooring. A glazed roof provides much natural light and double doors spill onto an adjacent side terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining etc. A separate utility room is accessed from the rear of the kitchen and has a stable door onto the gardens.

Upstairs, three bedrooms are accessed off the main landing, including a single which is currently used as a study. At mid landing level, the bathroom has been attractively reappointed to include a four-piece suite with roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle. A boiler cupboard contains a recently installed gas fired combination boiler which provides on-demand hot water as well as central heating through radiators in all rooms.

On the top floor, a good sized and extremely characterful double bedroom has a pitched ceiling with exposed roof trusses and two feature windows - one a large walk-in dormer, the other a Velux roof fold-out balcony, both of which enjoy panoramic views over Arwyn Place to nearby Arwenack Avenue, and over the town to the harbour and estuary beyond.

The forecourt provides space for two/three vehicles with a gateway through a red brick wall leading to an attractive side garden where there is a workshop/store, paved terrace from the living accommodation, and raised beds with numerous sub-tropical plants. The rear garden has recently been re-landscaped to provide lawned and gravelled terraces which enjoy a high degree of privacy and sunshine, with further stores including a timber shed and large open-fronted log store.

A complete family home, in one of the town's most sought-after settings, just minutes walk from Gyllyngvase and Castle beaches, the circular walk around Pendennis Point, Events Square, the harbourside, and town centre with its range of retail, commercial and leisure facilities.
