Occupying a prime position on the corner of Sea View and Pennance Road, almost completely hidden from view by well stocked surrounding gardens, a detached, individual, non-estate bungalow dating, we understand, from the 1960's, in need of comprehensive refurbishment and updating, but providing an exciting opportunity to purchase a home, with much potential, in this increasingly sought-after location, just minutes' walk from the seafront, beaches, coastal path, harbourside and town centre.
On the instructions of the executor and for sale with immediate vacant possession, 'Santillana' is a detached, individual bungalow situated on sought-after Sea View Road which, conveniently, sits midway between the seafront in one direction and the town and harbourside, along Woodlane, in the other.
Now in need of updating but providing immense scope for further development (subject to consents), the property will prove of appeal to a wide range of prospective purchasers being, currently, an ideal three bedroom retirement home which, alternatively, could be extended in a number of ways to form a much larger residence, again subject to all necessary consents.
Set back from Sea View Road, behind a broad granite retaining wall, which continues along the side boundary to Pennance Road, 'Santillana' enjoys a high degree of privacy with many mature flowering shrubs and specimen trees providing much shelter, and an attractive outlook from many rooms. Extensive parking is provided on a broad forecourt with a car port in addition to an attached garage, off which there is extensive underfloor areas (of limited head height) ideal for continued use as a workshop and storage etc.
With the extremely high, and continually rising, demand for properties in this area of Falmouth, close to the seafront, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.
