Bedrooms: 5
To be sold for the first time since construction in 2000, a highly individual and incredibly versatile detached gated residence, located, quite literally, within moments of Gyllyngvase Beach, offering substantial 5 double bedroom (4 en-suite) accommodation, arranged over 3 levels with a high degree of privacy, benefiting from partial sea views to the first and second floors, well established and favourable westerly-facing rear garden, together with plentiful driveway parking and integral double garage. In all, an increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a fine 'architect designed' home on arguably one of Falmouth s most desirable residential roads.

THE LOCATION

Stracey Road is one of the most sought-after residential roads within Falmouth, being located just off the seafront, which is easily reached within just a few moments walk along the foot of Spernen Wyn Road.

Consequently, Queen Mary Gardens, Gyllyngvase Beach and the South West Coast Path are 'on the door step', and Falmouth town centre is an approximate fifteen minute walk away, via picturesque Fox's Lane, and which provides an excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure facilities including the National Maritime Museum, Arts Centre and variety of cosmopolitan restaurants.

THE PROPERTY

'Eden House' is a fine, individual residence of much quality and finesse, designed by local architect, Alan Leather, and finished by builders Gilbert & Goode, allowing for unexpected levels of privacy and peace given the thriving nature of its immediate surroundings.

Discreetly set and somewhat sheltered from the road, a gated brick-paved frontage provides plentiful parking, with an additional integral double garage. Adjacent, an arched and recessed entranceway opens into a reception/foyer with useful cloakroom.

To the ground floor, two well proportioned double bedrooms offer en-suite facilities, with the rear providing access onto the enclosed and well established rear garden. To the rear of the ground floor hallway, a 'galley-style' utility room allows convenient integral access into the adjoining double garage. Additionally, the garage also enjoys immediate access via double doors found to the rear, into the garden.

Stairs rise to the first floor rear landing giving access to a WC, and bedroom three, again, substantial in size with en-suite shower room. The front landing links the beautifully appointed kitchen, featuring maple oak units and accompanying granite worksurface, with the dining room adjacent, boasting a Juliet balcony feature with sea glimpses and cosy gas fired stove. An impressively deep, double aspect living room showcases a central fireplace with quality natural stone surround and, to the rear, sliding doors open onto a particularly private, westerly-facing balcony, giving elevated views over the delightful greenery seen in the garden below.

To the second floor, two further double bedrooms, one of which a substantial principal suite, comprising a bath/shower room, dressing room and separate, unexpected 'walk-in' loft space, complete the internal accommodation.

To the exterior, 'Eden House' has an established plot with hallmarks of a property beyond its years particularly when taking in the lush array of greenery on offer. Many plants, shrubs and trees including camellias, rhododendrons, fig tree, holly tree and olive tree etc, create a wonderful outside space which can maintained with a degree of ease. The property also benefits from designated garden paths to either side, linking the front and rear.

Without doubt, Eden House must be viewed at the earliest opportunity in order to 'not miss out' given the nature of the highly desirable locality yet discreet positioning, so close to the sublime, safe, sandy, bathing beaches at Gyllyngvase, Castle and Swanpool
