A rare opportunity to acquire a large detached property on one of Falmouth s most sought-after residential roads, moments from the seafront and Gyllyngvase Beach. The property, arranged over 2 storeys, boasts vast accommodation, totalling over 3,500 square foot. Currently, the owners occupy the deceptively spacious top floor, with their own private entrance and access at ground floor level, which comprises 3 double bedrooms, living area, dining room and kitchen, family bathroom, balcony, rear garden and entrance hall with utility room at ground floor level. Our clients have created 2 self-contained holiday let apartments on the ground floor, which are occupied for only part of the year, which have provided excellent income streams over recent years. The property has been meticulously cared for since our clients ownership, with clear evidence of substantial investment. A highly versatile property which could be operated as is , or made into a large family home with a self-contained 1 or 2 bedroom annexe, to be used to generate additional income or to be occupied by a dependent relative.


The property is located along very desirable Stracey Road, which links Cliff Road and Gyllyngvase Hill, just a couple of minutes walk from Gyllyngvase Beach and delightful seafront; the town centre is an approximate 10 minute walk away. Although there is parking for several vehicles on the property s driveway, Falmouth Town Station is an approximate 5 minute walk away, providing regular train services to and from Truro (journey time circa 25 minutes). There are direct and regular trains to and from London Paddington via Truro Station (journey time circa 4.5 hours). For those travelling by plane, Newquay Airport is approximately 30 miles away (circa 45 minute car journey). The immediate area surrounding the property is highly desirable indeed, both from a residential and commercial perspective, with St Michaels Hotel and the new Liner building at hand. Properties which become available within this location witness huge demand.

Falmouth is undoubtedly one of Britain s most thriving and lively towns, offering a unique lifestyle with a bustling town centre and beautiful beaches.

The combination of maritime heritage and modern creativity makes the town hugely popular; it is a constant carnival during the summer months, yet still energetic in the winter, offering great food festivals and sea shanties to keep all entertained. Many beautiful areas surround Falmouth, including Flushing, Mylor and the Helford River.
