Bedrooms: 3
A beautiful cottage, discreetly positioned at the 'foot' of Dunstanville Terrace, a 'stones throw' from Greenbank, the harbourside and Royal Cornwall Yacht Club. Impeccably presented throughout, providing well appointed and highly characterful 3 bedroom accommodation, with all main rooms, and front gardens, enjoying views to Falmouth Harbour, the outskirts of Flushing and Carrick Roads beyond. Surprisingly large, well enclosed, sunny, sheltered rear gardens are another feature which contain a substantial 'studio', thoroughly insulated and with light and power connected, ideal for those working from home etc.


Understood to date from the 1700's, 6 Basset Place is one of those, few, thoroughly, yet sensitively updated cottages, close to the town centre and harbour, which retains much character and appeal.

Now benefiting from casement windows, many with working shutters and fitted window seats with views to the harbour, and high-tech wi-fi controlled electric radiators, features of the accommodation include: a pretty gabled entrance porch, double aspect living room with glass-fronted log-burner, dining room with mellow pine flooring, L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room and, to the first floor, three harbour-facing bedrooms, and a superbly reappointed four-piece bathroom with under-floor heating and white suite.

The front gardens comprise a terrace ideal for that morning coffee, and the rear gardens have been extensively landscaped to provide gravelled and decked terraces, completely enclosed by stone walling and mature hedging, providing a high degree of privacy and shelter, together with much sunshine. There is an outside WC, bin storage area, rear pedestrian gate and 'studio' which, being thoroughly insulated, double glazed and with light and power connected, is ideal for a variety of uses, subject to any necessary consents.

An early viewing of this exceptional cottage is unhesitatingly recommended.


Basset Place occupies a discreet, 'hidden' position at the 'foot' of Dunstanville Terrace, with Number 6 benefiting from views along the approach slipway to the harbour and coastline beyond. The Greenbank Hotel and Royal Cornwall Yacht Club are just moments away with Greenbank Gardens providing direct and easy access onto the harbour for canoeists and paddleboarders etc. A picturesque walk along Dunstanville Terrace leads to the top of Falmouth's Old High Street, along and at the foot of which are the town's shops, bars, restaurants and galleries etc. Other facilities in the town include the main marina, a level walk away, the National Maritime Museum in Events Square, venue for the Sea Shanty and Oyster Festivals etc, numerous sub-tropical gardens, safe bathing beaches and far-reaching walks around Falmouth Bay on The South West Coast Path.
