Bedrooms: 4
Constructed c. 1980, a detached, individual 4, possibly 5, bedroom house, occupying a superb position, at the end of its own long private drive, just 350 yards from Falmouth's main, safe, sandy bathing beach at Gyllyngvase.

The gas centrally heated and double glazed accommodation has been well maintained and improved by the present owner, providing versatile living and bedroom accommodation, supplemented by 3 bath/shower rooms and, to the first floor, a superb full breadth terrace with views to Falmouth Bay. Ample forecourt parking is provided in addition to an attached garage/games room and, to the rear, there is a delightful, well stocked garden with greenhouse, store and summerhouse which enjoys the evening sun.


Constructed, we understand, c. 1980, 'Willows' is a detached, individual house which occupies a privileged, south-facing position, set well back from Spernen Wyn Road, at the foot of which is Gyllyngvase Beach, Gylly Beach Cafe, Queen Mary Gardens and the beautiful seafront walk along Cliff Road to Pendennis Point in one direction, and along the coastal path to Swanpool in the other.

Benefiting from gas fired central heating, with a recently renewed boiler, full double glazing and supplementary solar panelling, the house offers highly versatile accommodation with two interconnecting living rooms, the south-facing living room and separate dining room if required, as well as a ground floor study which, for future years, could possibly be used as a fifth bedroom, especially bearing in mind the close proximity of a well appointed downstairs cloaks/shower room. The present owner has created a separate utility room with access onto the side gardens and, to the rear, there is now a broad, full width, family sized, triple aspect kitchen, breakfast and sitting room, which overlooks and opens onto the well enclosed, colourful, sheltered rear gardens.

Upstairs, the three main front-facing bedrooms all open directly onto an extensive sun terrace; the master bedroom has a dressing room and private shower room, in addition to which there is a fully tiled family bathroom.

The deep, private, shrub-lined driveway provides additional parking to a large brick pavia forecourt off which a sun terrace, with glazed balustrading, opens from the living accommodation. A large attached single garage has an electronic roller door and courtesy door to the rear, which is designed to provide level wheelchair access to the rear of the house if and when required. The gardens are extremely well stocked throughout, provide a high degree of privacy and shelter, and benefit from the greenhouse, store and summerhouse, ideal for relaxing in after a day on the beach.
