A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen to own this splendid, imposing two bedroom Cornelius detached bungalow which is set on a generous, raised corner plot at one of Falmouth's most popular and sought after addresses, close to local amenities, walking distance to the sea front, beaches, Penmere branch line station and down Killigrew Street to the town centre.
The property was believed to have been built in the 1930's (awaiting confirmation) and has distinctive, individual double fronted elevations bearing all the hallmarks of a Cornelius design with prominent pitched slate roofed round bays and an eye-brow window to the first floor elevation. Set in superb well planted gardens with high granite boundaries across the front and side and at the rear, a detached garage and multiple parking within the driveway. This fine property offers new owners so much potential to refresh the interior and space to create further bedrooms on the first floor and the chance to build a double garage/workshop to the rear (all subject to the normal planning permission and regulation approval. The main part of the building is constructed in red brick set on granite foundations with a more modern cavity block kitchen extension at the rear. Our clients have undertaken a Mundic Block test which was given an A1 classification in December 2020.
Current features include gas fired central heating by radiators, a focal point fireplace with gas fire in the lounge, original picture rails and skirtings, beautiful original entrance doors with stained glass and leaded light glasswork, matching side panels.
The spacious accommodation includes a generous reception hall, lounge overlooking the front garden, a separate dining room with patio doors overlooking the side garden, a fitted kitchen with appliances overlooking the rear, two double bedrooms, a re-modelled shower room/wc and separate cloakroom to the ground floor. A staircase leads from the entrance hall to the first floor that leads you to the third bedroom with an eye-brow window overlooking the front aspect. From this bedroom a doorway leads into a large boarded attic space which in our opinion is ripe for conversion.
The bungalow is set in a convenient and highly regarded location within walking distance to a local convenience store, chemist, tennis and squash club, King Charles primary school, various university campuses at Woodlane, Gyllyngvase Beach and the sea front and Penmere branch line railway station that connects to the cathedral city of Truro. A longer stroll will take you down Killigrew Street into Falmouth's bustling town centre and waterside districts.
As our clients sole agents, we strongly recommend an immediate viewing to secure this fine property.
