Bedrooms: 5
One of the most admired, tall, elegant, 3-storey period houses on Woodlane, Falmouth's most sought-after tree-lined avenue, facing south and enjoying views over the town and out to sea. Providing well proportioned, fully updated and superbly appointed 4 bedroom, 3 bath/shower room accommodation, together with 2-storey annexe to the rear, ideal for a dependent relative, visiting friends or as a lucrative source of letting income etc. With beautifully stocked and landscaped gardens to both front and rear, we strongly recommend an early viewing appointment of, what is, one of Falmouth's most appealing town houses.


Constructed, we understand, in the late 1800 s, this beautiful Victorian house was the subject of a top-to-toe refurbishment approximately twenty years ago, when purchased by our clients, with works having included reroofing, extension, new slate hanging, remodelling of the original accommodation, rewiring, the installation of a comprehensive gas fired central heating system, the replacement of many windows with quality sash-style double glazing, replumbing, the installation of contemporary sanitary ware, and the creation of a large, family sized kitchen/breakfast room with a lantern roof and doors onto the courtyard and gardens.

The front gardens have been designed and planted to provide a good degree of privacy from the roadside, with a paved terrace providing a sitting-out area. A porch opens to a deep reception hall with elegant turning staircase, with the front-facing lounge featuring a bay window and glass-fronted log-burner. An adaptable snug is ideal as a TV room or similar, with the broad family sized kitchen/breakfast room leading to a utility area and ground floor cloakroom/WC to the rear. Upstairs, there is a split level landing with library area; the principal bedroom suite faces south and enjoys views over the town to the sea, with two further large double bedrooms on this floor served by a well appointed family bath/shower room with four-piece suite. On the second floor, there is a further (fourth) bedroom, again en-suite, with dormer windows to both and rear elevations, the former with stunning views over the town and across Falmouth Bay to the shoreline of The Lizard peninsula.

The annexe to the rear of the house can be accessed by a covered walkway to the side of the property, thus providing independent access if required. The rear gardens are typical of the best in-town Victorian houses, with a cobbled courtyard area, useful store, and steps up to a fully enclosed upper garden which is extremely sheltered, private and sunny.


Woodlane needs little introduction to those who know Falmouth, being one of the town s most sought-after roads by virtue of its eclectic mix of substantial housing and home to Falmouth School of Art.

Step out of the front gardens, with its wrought iron gate and balustrading, turn left, and within approximately 350 metres you are on Falmouth s main street, off which the quays, harbourside, bars, shops and commercial facilities can all be found. Turn right, and a ten minute walk leads through Foxes Lane or Fox Rosehill Gardens to safe, sandy Gyllyngvase Beach, the seafront and South West Coast Path. Around the corner on Albany Road and Western Terrace, local facilities include a doctors surgery, tennis club, primary school and convenience store. Regular buses run along Woodlane and, at the foot of nearby Grovehill Crescent, is Falmouth s main railway halt with regular service to Penryn, the university campus at Tremough and cathedral city of Truro.
