Bedrooms: 5
On this extremely elegant terrace of tall, late Victorian, stucco-fronted houses, more akin to SW6 than TR11, an exceptional 3 storey period home, perfectly situated for the seafront, beaches, town centre and harbourside, all of which are within just a few minutes walk away, with all front-facing rooms, particularly on the first and second floor, enjoying panoramic views over the town to Falmouth Bay. Tastefully updated yet retaining a wealth of original authentic features to well proportioned 5 bedroom, 2 bath/shower room accommodation with elegant living areas. Pretty front garden, well enclosed, sunny and secure rear garden, with potential for off-road parking if required, subject to consents.


Dating, we understand, from the late 19th Century, the property is one of those houses which, somehow, successfully combines modern yet sympathetic amenities, with many original features including tall ceilings, bay windows, numerous fireplaces, tall skirtings, exposed mellow pine flooring, panelled doors and moulded ceiling cornices.

Steps lead up from the front garden to a sheltered entrance, porch with tessellated tiled flooring and part glazed casement door into a deep hallway with elegantly rising staircase. Two reception rooms, both with high ceilings, have been combined to make one large living area, with bay window to the south east-facing front elevation and casement doors open onto the rear courtyard. The kitchen is attractively fitted, features a gas fired Esse in a tiled recess, further doors onto the courtyard, and opening into a large utility room, as good as a second kitchen.

Upstairs, a split level landing leads to a double bedroom and tastefully reappointed bathroom and separate shower room to the rear, with a front landing leading to two further double bedrooms and an adaptable single bedroom or study which, like the main bedroom on this floor, enjoys the lovely far-reaching views. An original attic room can be used as either a master bedroom or, as previously, as a further sitting room or studio, with vaulted ceiling, log-burner and, to the front, a deep, walk-in dormer window where the stunning elevated views extend across the town to the Carrick Roads and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula in one direction, and out to sea and across the breadth of Falmouth Bay to The Lizard peninsula, in the other.

A pretty front garden provides a sunny sitting-out terrace with dracaena palm and, to the rear, the courtyard leads onto a well enclosed garden which enjoys the later day sun and, subject to consents, could be adapted to provide off-road parking as others have done along the terrace.

A beautiful family home, ideal for those seeking a period town house with Falmouth's excellent amenities and attractions such as Falmouth Sailing Week, and Oyster and Sea Shanty festivals, 'on the doorstep'.
