This lovely home has been very well cared for and it is presented to an immaculate standard yet most prospective purchasers would look to adopt a scheme of refitting and redecoration throughout.
It offers generously proportioned three double bedroom, two reception room accommodation along with a sunny conservatory at the rear, a kitchen and utility room with the original fitted units along with a bathroom and separate cloakroom. From the living room and large master bedroom there are lovely elevated views across Falmouth around to Gyllyngvase with a view of Falmouth Bay through neighbouring properties over to Pendennis Headland and the Castle and over to St Anthony's lighthouse on the Roseland.
The property sits centrally in a beautiful plot approaching a third of an acre comprising lovely lawned gardens to both front and rear with planted beds and mature boundaries affording a good degree of privacy.
There is a long driveway providing ample off- road parking leading into an extremely large garage with electronic roller door.
The garden at the rear is an absolute delight facing south comprising a large raised lawned garden interspersed with good range of established flowering plants and shrubs and a broad patio running across the rear elevation providing the perfect space for entertaining.
In all this lovely home offers a rare opportunity to purchase a well-proportioned quality house in one of Falmouth's best locations within a short walk of the seafront and the Anthony Way is one of Falmouth's most desirable residential locations situated just off the seafront with Gyllyngvase Blue Flag beach just a few moments’ walk away on Cliff Road. Cliff Road forms part of the Southwest coastal path leading up around Pendennis Headland which is the home of Henry viii's Castle. In a southerly direction the coastal pathway leads down to Swanpool and onto Maenporth Cove around to the Helford River with its many tributaries.
Falmouth's colourful harbourside and town centre are accessible within a 10 to 15 minute walk. Falmouth has certainly grown in reputation over recent years into one of the most desirable places to live in the whole of the UK. The centre boasts a profusion of independent shopses, galleries cafes and restaurants.
The colourful harbour is the world's third deepest natural harbour and is now home to the National Maritime Museum playing host to many sailing events and transatlantic races including the tall ships race.
Falmouth is now a university town expanded from the original Art School along Wood Lane. The Dell railway station is located within a 15 minute walk from the property which is a branch line providing access onto the neighbouring town of Penryn and onto Truro where it links with the national rail network.
In all this is an exciting opportunity to purchase a sizeable, detached well maintained property enjoying a lovely position standing in a third of an acre garden enjoying angled views towards Falmouth Bay.Front approach
