Within walking distance of Falmouth seafront, town centre and Gyllyngvase and Swanpool Beaches, this exquisite, Edwardian townhouse must be viewed to be fully appreciated.


Of typical Edwardian style this property has a double fronted appearance and retains many period features such as high ceilings, large sash windows, cornicing in the majority of rooms, a central turning staircase and beautiful stained glass windows to the stairwell and front door. Whist the property has been elegantly modernised and extended, the present owners have done a beautiful job of incorporating contemporary style while at the same time keeping the character of a period home.

This stylish period, yet modern property enjoys a fabulous location and sea glimpses across Falmouth Bay. Ideally situated between the town and beaches with Gyllyngvase and Swanpool just a short walk away on the southern side of Falmouth which is most sought after with tree lined roads, parks and the sea so nearby.

A walled and gated entrance opens to a generous drive in front of a single garage. To the front of the property is a low maintenance, southerly, garden with a sunken, private seating area. Raised beds have a number of mature plants including roses, camellia, lavender, pride of Madeira and hydrangea amongst others. A granite arch leads to a secluded patio and onwards to the house.

A large entrance vestibule with a beautiful stained glass window, vaulted ceiling and tessellated tiled floor creates a superb first impression. This continues as you enter the main hall. A newly laid herringbone floor of Norwegian Oak, 10 foot ceilings and a beautiful stained glass door with matching lights above and around provide a sense of grandeur.

To the right of the hall is the eat-in kitchen. A range of cream, modern, gloss floor and wall mounted cabinetry with a contrasting granite worktop provide plenty of storage and preparation space as does the matching central island. A classic Rangemaster double oven with gas hob has pride of place. There is an integrated dishwasher, contemporary stainless steel 1.5 bowl sink and space for an American fridge/freezer. A bay with a large window offers room for a breakfast table and chairs.

The sitting room is of generous proportions and features a recently installed wood burner below a stone surround as a focal point. Large picture windows allow plenty of natural light. The aforementioned herringbone floor continues into this room and into an adjoining office or reading nook which is within the front bay of the house.

To the rear of the ground floor is an attractively decorated cloakroom and a separate utility room. A rear outdoor paved patio area off the utility room is useful and provides access to the garage and front side gate.

An attractive turning staircase leads past a large double glazed window with stained glass inserts, up to three double en-suite bedrooms. The master bedroom has a walk in wardrobe/dressing room and en-suite bath with shower, while the other two have built in wardrobes and en-suite showers rooms. The sea glimpses from the ground floor become better from the forward facing rooms upstairs. The best sea view is saved for the fourth double bedroom suite on the second floor however. There is a panoramic view of the bay and Pendennis Castle. There is a bathroom and large storage cupboard on this floor and while the 17 x 17ft room has a partly vaulted ceiling, this doesn't impinge on the usable space.

This is a grand Edwardian home, impeccably presented in a highly desirable location in Falmouth. A viewing is heartily recommended.
